HollywoodNews.com: ‘Project Runway’ host and fashion guru Tim Gunn has revealed that he tried to kill himself when he was a teenager.
Gunn, 57, made the revelation in a new video for ‘The Trevor Project,’ which aims to prevent suicide among gay youth.
He said: “As a 17-year-old youth who was in quite a bit of despair, I attempted to kill myself and I’m very happy today that that attempt was unsuccessful.”
“But, at the time, it’s all that I could contemplate.” He added: “I woke up the morning after taking over 100 pills and I was in a whole other level of despair.
“I thought: ‘I shouldn’t be here. This isn’t what was meant to be’. I frankly just wanted to start life all over again.”
