‘I became really sad and miserable,’ says Bette Midler of her ‘nervous breakdown.’

Bette Midler is a multi-Grammy Award-winning actress best known for her roles in Hocus Pocus (1993), The First Wives Club (1996), and Beaches (1998). Apart from her popularity, she’s a regular lady who can succumb to depression.

Bette Midler described her nervous breakdown as an “episode” in an interview with Oprah. “After I made a picture in the early 1980s, I was falsely accused of grandstanding, and I never did such a thing,” the 76-year-old added.
