From Kelly Clarkson to Ryan Reynolds, these prim perfect Hollywood stars have managed to handle their mental health issues well and avoid negative headlines.

AceShowbiz - Having started her acting career when she was three years old, Kirsten Dunst perhaps had gone through a lot of hard times before she succumbed to all the pressure. She voluntarily checked into the Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Utah in February 2008, amid rumors of drug and alcohol abuse. Since it wasn't long after Heath Ledger's death, some also linked Dunst's rehab stint to the "Brokeback Mountain" actor's tragic passing.

However, in the December 2010/January 2011 issue of BlackBook, the Mary Jane of Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy described her depression as a cause of "totally ridiculous expectations people put on actors." She went on talking about her struggle, "I know what it's like to lose yourself, to no longer know the difference between right or wrong."
