In a recent interview with TheFrisky.com, â€œHairsprayâ€ actress Brittany Snow told blogger Jessica Wakeman that it was bullying that led to her battles with anorexia, cutting and depression, which she regularly white-labels as â€œmental health issues.â€
The interview was set up to highlight Snow's involvement in the national anti-bullying campaign, â€œLove Is Louder.â€ She's urging people to tweet inspirational messages such as â€œ#loveislouder than hateâ€ and â€œI've felt isolated and hopeless, but #loveislouder than the pain.â€ Celebs including Pink and Vinny from â€œJersey Shoreâ€ have spoken out with â€œLove Is Louderâ€ videos, as well.
Snow told Wakeman, â€œWhen I was in middle school and high school, there was definitely a girl who was a bully who went as far as sending a note every day of different ways of how to kill myself, making dances about me and performing them in the lunchroom, putting them on fliers and throwing them around school, hitting me and throwing things at me. Every day. It was not just really good times. And that led me to have many other struggles later on, especially mental health issues that I've shared about at different times. It really did shape a lot of my growing up and how I thought about myself later on.â€
