She revealed in a podcast hosted by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes how therapy had changed her life and equipped her to get insight into her depression. 

In the "Smartless" podcast with Bateman, she shared her career direction changed when she realized she had been previously working to make a parent happy. She explained:

“Once you solve that puzzle [with therapy], it’s kind of like, ‘why am I still doing this? What am I doing?’ That’s when my whole career shifted to more purpose-driven."

The "Legally Blonde" star shared to Jamila that she had experienced postpartum depression after two of her children's births. Her birth with the eldest child, Ava, had been the worst. 

She revealed that she was unaware of the hormone fluctuations after birth, so depression hit her hard. She went on to say that she had a different experience after the birth of each of her kids.
