‘I was just tired of my life” – Drew Carey

January 31st, 2024

Drew Carey, an American comedian and actor, has shared personal details about some of his worst days.

In his Friday interview on Max’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?”, the 65-year-old host of “Price Is Right” talked about his attempts to end his life when he was 18 and in his early 20s.

“I think the suicide attempts were calls for help,” he remarked according to Entertainment Weekly.

“I was furious that everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.” I recall that.

“I recall thinking, ‘What the hell are they so happy about?’ as I was walking down the stairs and saw that everyone was drinking.”


“I was just angry that they were so happy,” he continued. I was simply fed up with my lot in life and wondered, “Who’s going to miss me?”

“I was furious that everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.” That’s something I recollect,” he said.

The comic acknowledged that he still gets the occasional “Who’s-gonna-miss-me?” thinking.

I find myself thinking to myself a lot. As in, “I’m just going to have my body cremated if I die.” He went on, “No funeral and nothing related to, like, all my mementos and stuff.”

Carry now says that his mental health is doing much better today than it was during the roughest periods of his life.

Carey has opened up about his mental health in the past, revealing to Access Hollywood (via Today) in 2007 that he was “depressed for a long time.”

He said he learned to work through his rough mental health days by looking forward to all the opportunities life was giving him.

“I learned how to believe in myself. Learned how to set goals, you know, self help books man,” he said.

“I just read every single one I can get a hold of and I still do. I read that stuff all the time still.”

He added, “I am always coming out bigger, better, stronger and happier

He told Wallace that his success has molded him into a more confident person.

“[Fame has] changed a lot of things for me. Like, don’t take things personally,” he stated

“I took everything personally. If somebody wrote a bad review, I’d be like, ‘What the hell? Coming after my money?’”

“All that’s gone.”
