Actor-director-writer-artist James Franco has admitted he has an addictive personality, which translated into self-destructive behaviors when he was a teen living in Palo Alto.

Franco, 39, says he “got over certain addictions” but channeled them into acting, which he started at age 17. But in the interview with Out magazine, the Palo Alto High graduate explains he went overboard with the acting, which led to isolation and depression.

“I really threw myself into it, and that became everything, to the point where I didn’t even socialize,” said Franco, who next stars in HBO’s “The Deuce” and “The Disaster Artist.” “And then after, like, 10 years of that, at age 27, I realized, ‘Man, I’m so depressed. On the surface my life seems pretty good—I have a career and everything— but I feel isolated and lonely.’”

In a response to a tweet about his Instagram use and the billionaire’s seemingly charmed existence, Musk explained that he experiences “great highs, terrible lows and unrelenting stress. Don’t think people want to hear about the last two.”

When someone asked Musk whether he’s bipolar, Musk said, “yeah,” but followed it up with a qualifier: “Maybe not medically tho. Dunno. Bad feelings correlate to bad events, so maybe real problem is getting carried away in what I sign up for.”
