The actor also explained how he struggled with depression and turned to food for comfort instead of other things like drugs, alcohol or sex. “But eating became the one thing I could look forward to. Count on to get me through. There were stretches when the highlight of my week was a favorite meal.”
Miller also commented on how he made it through his dark days and doesn’t regret the paparazzi taking his photo while he was heavier. “Now, when I see that image of me in my red t-shirt, a rare smile on my face, I am reminded of my struggle. My endurance and my perseverance in the face of all kinds of demons. Some within. Some without.”
The actor ended his post with urging others to help their friends and family if they are struggling with depression. Miller has been very open about his struggles in the past and helping others dealing with mental issues.
