The Divergent star spoke frankly about her psychological illness, which greatly affected her ability to work.
"I said no to a lot of projects, not because I wanted to, but because I physically couldn't participate in them," she explains. "And I definitely suffered a lot more than I had to because I didn't take care of myself. The self-inflicted pressure of not wanting to be helped or taken care of created more physical unrest throughout those years."
Now the actress is feeling much better, she is recovering and ready for new projects, but she is afraid that she will never be able to forget how her body was depleted.

"I'm on the tail end of it, which is very exciting, but it's an interesting thing, going through something so physically dominating while also having so many people pay attention to the choices you make, the things you say, what you do, what you look like," she says. "It spun me out for a while. You feel so incredibly isolated and alone."
"Unless someone can see that you have a broken arm or a broken leg, it's really difficult for people to relate to the pain that you’re experiencing when it’s a silent, quiet and invisible pain," she adds.
