    Default Celebrities and personality disorders

    Given the huge amount of trainwreck celebs and since I'm a bit interested in psychology , I can't stop wondering who might be suffering from which mental health issue or personality disorder. I recently read an article that suggested that a lot of famous people have borderline personality disorder.

    So lets diagnose - Let me hear your guesses.

    Britney has SOMETHING, but I don't think its borderline-it went right over that border.

    Adam Levine has attention deficit disorder according to IMDB.Paris Hilton was diagnosed with extreme attention deficit disorder when she was in jail.I think most celebrities we see everday on the blogs have this disorder.

    I think Lindsay's bipolar. Possibly borderline as well.

    As for Britney, other than being delusional, who knows...I wouldn't be surprised by a crash in the not-too-distant future, though.

    I think most of them have something- you cant be famous and unaffected, it'd be impossible. Thats why theres alot of drug addicts and alcoholics. I guess everyone has different reactions but you have to be a little crazy.

    I think you're right there. I read some time ago that Beyonce is also a narcissist.

    I think the overwhelming majority of them are narcissists, which is why they wanted to be "stars" in the first place. The constant praise and adoration that come along with fame are very attractive to the narcissist.

    I also think there are a few (Britney, LiLo) who suffer from schizophrenia or other serious mental illnesses brought on or exacerbated by heavy drug abuse.

    ^I think most of them have narcissistic personality disorder: Angelina, Levine, Britney, Lindsay.......It's all manifested in their need to be adored. Not all celebrities are out and out narcissists. But the ones we talk about every day--they are, oh boy are they ever.

    I accept the bipolar and borderline personality disorder for Lilo. I don't think any of them are actually schizophrenic--they don't have any of the symptoms of schizophrenia. Anne Heche is probably schizophrenic and narcissistic.

    Most of them just need us to stop paying attention to them. Then maybe they will all just explode in one glorious technicolor dream. Bye bye.

    this is really interesting actually, especially to me (I'm a psych major... lol). Without knowing any of them there is no real way come up with anything real (unless the celebrity has admitted to it), so I will just take some guesses.

    Britney Spears- bipolar disorder with drug/alcohol abuse, mild post pardum depression. Needs immediate medical help.
    Angelina Jolie and Lindsay Lohan- Borderline personality disorder (and drug addiction), both need mental health care and Lindsay needs a 6-12 month drug rehab program where she is not allowed to leave.
    Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen- depression, drug abuse and anorexia. Both better than they were at their lowest points.
    Owen Wilson- major depressive disorder and substance abuse. The "suicide attempt" was likely a drug cover up though.
    Paris Hilton, Kanye West, P Diddy, Lindsay Lohan (and many other celebrities)- narcissistic personality disorder, delusions of grandeur.
    Paula Abdul- depression and severe prescription drug abuse
    Woody Allen- OCD
    Courtney Love- drug abuse (obviously), depression, anxiety
    Anne Heche- Bipolar Disorder and anxiety
    Courtney Cox, Brooke Shields- admitted to PPD
    Jean-Claude Van Damme- Bipolar
    Jessica Alba- anorexic with bulimic tendencies and mild depression

    I believe many, many female celebrities suffer from eating disorders which are worsened/triggered due to media attention on size, some of them include (past or present): Hilary Duff, the Olsens, Lindsay Lohan, Kelly Ripa, Teri Hatcher, Calista Flockhart, Nicole Richie, Christina Ricci, Angelina Jolie, Kate Bosworth and Victoria Beckham

    I've heard professionals reffer to Tom Cruise as manic depressive/bipolar. Britney might have untreated post postpartum depression - masked by substance abuse.
