Actress and singer Demi Lovato, 22, learned she had bipolar disorder after a stint in rehab. In 2010, Lovato entered rehab after dealing with depression, an eating disorder, and self-harm.

During the interview, Lovato said she had battled depression from a young age
Mamet—who plays the loveable Shoshanna on HBO’s “Girls”—bravely revealed to Glamour magazine in 2014 that she’s battled an eating disorder since she’s been a child, touching on how society’s obsession with thinness played a role in her disorder. “You want to control something, and then society says, ‘Hey, how about controlling the way you look? Skinny is beautiful,'” wrote Mamet. “Your obsession feels justified.”
The pop star started off the new year by taking control of her body; she announced in January that she would be entering a 30-day rehab program for an eating disorder. “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice. I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder, to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am,” she told People magazine.
