The Queen Latifah Show appearance

Russo reveals that she is taking medication for bipolar disorder during a taping of the Queen Latifah Show. Russo appears on the show with her Nightcrawler costar Jake Gyllenhaal.

For all the people that are having trouble and maybe feel bad about taking medication, I didn’t expect to say this, but that was really it for me. It’s okay — you will make it through. It’s not easy but you will make it through. I literally crashed, hit a wall and couldn’t get out of bed. I thought it was depression, but if you take antidepressants it speeds you up more. I’m kind of stop-and-go, I either crash or speed. I haven’t shared this, but I think it’s kind of important. I have some friends who don’t want to go on medication, and they are suffering.
