It is not the first time that Ms. Barton made headlines owing to the state of her mental health. In 2009, Mirror reports that the actress threatened to kill herself. While she was never actually suicidal, she admitted how depressed she was and how she was struggling to cope with life.
“It was a full-on breakdown. It was terrifying. I was never suicidal, I was just overworked and depressed. But one slip of the tongue in a heightened moment, and you find yourself in that situation,” Barton said.
The actress also celebrated her birthday days prior to this incident.
