Ellen: Bryce Dallas Howard Directs Call Me Crazy: A Five Film
Jennifer Aniston is producing a new movie on Lifetime, Call Me Crazy: A Five Film, so Ellen brought on the star of the film, Brittany Snow, and one of the directors of the movie, Bryce Dallas Howard.
Howard told Ellen the film focuses on mental illness, something she knows a little about. After she gave birth to her first child, Theo, Howard went into a deep postpartum depression. As soon as she had the baby, Howard said she fell into a depression but she had no idea. She didn’t feel the joy she thought she would after she had the baby but she dismissed the feelings. For the next year and a half she lived with postpartum depression without questioning how she felt.
“I didn’t feel normal at all,” Howard said. “I felt ashamed and it kept getting worse.”
Howard finally got help, inadvertently, when she started doing homeopathic treatments for a different illness she was suffering from. The treatment was supposed to change her hormones around a bit and when it started to work, Howard said it was like the world changed her for. Even her friends were making comments about how she was back to normal. Oddly enough, she did not slip into a depression after her second child was born.
