In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, actress Melissa McCarthy says she wakes up every morning at 4:30 to get in a little "me" time.


Everyone needs some time to relax, rewind, and reset. The Mike and Molly actress says her time begins at the crack of dawn and involves classic television, particularly The Incredible Hulk. She tells the magazine:

"I watch Lou Ferrigno freak out, throw a clearly rubber tree. Bill Bixby's high-waisted super chambray-colored pants. They're always so pristine. Even though he's backpacking in the woods, he's so freshly laundered. I had no memory of the softer side of the Hulk. Lou Ferrigno, as the Hulk, picked up a baby bird's nest — or did he pick up actual baby birds? I can't remember which. I was like: 'You're not supposed to touch a baby bird and put them back in a tree. They'd die and then their mother would leave them.' Is that true? If you touch a bird does the mother really take off? That's what we were always told, right?"

Okay, so the comedian has a tendency to go off on mental tangents, but she adds:

"I treat myself right."

McCarthy also says she loves reading The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.

Fans on Twitter agree the actress deserves time for herself.


McCarthy's latest project, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, is getting great reviews.

People love McCarthy in this role.

Can You Forgive Me? opens October 19, 2018.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
