Stiles' Suicide Self-therapy
Actress JULIA STILES contemplates suicide whenever she is stressed, as a way to calm her down.
The actress, who plays a suicidal young woman in new period movie The Bell Jar, confesses she uses the bizarre self-therapy method - despite having no intention of taking her life.
Stiles says, "I would never want to commit suicide, but I have thought about it. I find it a very comforting feeling, when you're stressed out, to be able to say, 'I could walk in front of that bus right now.'
"Why did I say that? I love my life. When you feel you're in a rut or something's not going right, it reminds you of the power you have, and why it's very precious to be alive."
