Emily opens up on her suicide attempt

Los Angeles: Actor Emily Atack, 29, has revealed that she tried to take her life when she was just 15.

In an interview to the Sunday People, the Almost Married star opened up about her suicide attempt after splitting from an ex-boyfriend who called her a "psycho", reports

She said: "I would do drastic things in order to make him get back with me. I drank a bottle of vodka and cut my wrists – a cry for help, a cry for attention. I was spiralling. I was too young to cope with my breaking heart and cloudy drunk head."

Emily added that she was saved by medics but had to "hide her bandages" from her family, especially her mother Kate Robbins, 57, who was "horrified".

She also shared that after her teenage heartbreak she started bunking off school due to bullying, hanging out with older students and having house parties in her parents' home when they were away.

The actor's revelation came after Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson admitted a suicide attempt when she was plagued by internet trolls.

Speaking out in her new book, Emily, 29, said: "I'll never forgive myself for harming my body in that way.

"I didn't want to die. I just felt so out of control."
