Elijah Wood suffered a major Hollywood slump as he approached his 30th birthday, so he enrolled in therapy to deal with his issues.
The Lord of the Rings star reveals he didn’t work for two years and he sought professional help as he struggled to deal with his emotional problems.
However, Wood, 32, enjoyed the sessions as he learned to “laugh at himself”.
He tells Britain’s Live magazine, “I’ve had things that I had to overcome, like everybody does. I went through a period a couple of years ago where I didn’t work for two years. When I was 29 and turning 30, I went to therapy for the first time. It was amazing. It made me learn to laugh a lot at myself, but I also learned a lot of groundbreaking things. It was like mental excavation. I found it fascinating.”
