Hayden Panettiere looked amazing in a plunging peach gown as she made a return to the red carpet at the Critics Choice Awards, which were held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica California.
It was one of her first public events since she admitted herself to a treatment facility three months ago for postpartum depression – which is a type of depression some women experience after having a baby.
The actress, whose daughter turned one last month, revealed how she felt “so proud” to be inspiring others.
Hayden told Entertainment Tonight, “I've gotten an incredible amount of support and I was actually really surprised cause I feel like I grew up in this industry that, in my mind, was very judgmental, I didn't even look at social media.” She added that she used to feel that people were waiting for her to fail.
“Then, when I looked, people were like, ‘Oh my gosh, good for you,’ and I am so proud to be a spokesperson and a woman that people can look to and to know that they're not alone and they're not weak if they go and they seek help.”
We think it's amazing and brave that Hayden opened up about her depression. What do you think about the situation? Let us know in the comments below!
