You might think that starring in two Hollywood blockbusters, having your movies rock the box office in Japan or being loved by a beautiful actress would help ease an often-crippling sense of anxiety, but you would be wrong, says Lee Byung Hun.

On a March episode of "Healing Camp," Lee, the star of the drama "Iris," and the films "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and "Red 2" talked about his experiences with depression and anxiety. The actor said he first became depressed when he had to clear up debts that accumulated following the death of his father.

"Every moment felt like death for me back then and that experience is something you cannot understand unless you have experienced it yourself," he said.

That period of depression led to acute anxiety attacks.
