Hugh Laurie Battling Depression

“House” star Hugh Laurie has revealed that he is battling depression.

The British actor flew home to London last week to reunite with his wife and three kids. He returned to the set yesterday, but told the Sydney Daily Telegraph this weekend that he was “drained” by the show’s success and missed his family.

Hugh, 48, also revealed that he thinks about the show constantly. “I’m too neurotic and too anal and too convinced that we're going to fail to relax,” he says. “I'm looking for things to go wrong. I'm not rejoicing or lying back and enjoying it."

Hugh, now one of the highest paid actors on television, also revealed that he continues to see a therapist periodically.
