Work saved me from depression: Emma Thompson

Posted on: March 29, 2010

British actress Emma Thompson has revealed she suffered from depression as her marriage to Kenneth Branagh fell apart but working on the screenplay of her film “Sense and Sensibility” saved her from “going under”.

The “Nanny McPhee” star divorced the actor in 1995, and was so affected by the break up she didn’t even want to change her clothes but Thompson insists concentrating on penning 1995s “Sense and Sensibility” helped her overcome her depression, and she went on to marry actor Greg Wise, reports telegraph.co.uk.

“Work saved me, and then Greg. He picked up the pieces. I was acting on stage in ‘Me and My Girl’. It was so bad that I got to the stage I wasn’t really changing my clothes at home. I remember that Ken had this black cashmere dressing gown and when he was not at home I simply wore it,” she said.

“It was a time when I couldn’t even answer the phone, yet I would go out every night to perform in the theatre and cheerfully sing the ‘Lambeth walk’. To help myself, the only thing I could do was to write, but I had to crawl to the computer. Writing ‘Sense and Sensibility’ saved me form going under in a very nasty way,” she added.
