Christina Applegate has hinted that she might be ready to retire from acting due to her ongoing battle with multiple sclerosis (MS). The beloved actress, who is best known for her roles in Anchorman and Married with Children, opened up about her health struggles in a recent interview with People magazine.
Applegate was diagnosed with MS in 2008, and has been vocal about her battle with the chronic autoimmune disease. She told People that she has been struggling to cope with the physical and mental demands of acting, especially as her MS symptoms have become more severe.
“It’s hard to do a job that requires so much physical energy and so much focus when you have an autoimmune disorder,” Applegate said. “My body can’t keep up with the demands of the job anymore. I don’t have that in me right now.”
Applegate said that she has been trying to find ways to manage her MS symptoms, including taking medication and doing yoga and meditation. But she admitted that she has been struggling to find the energy to continue acting.
“I’m trying to find ways to manage my health and still be able to do my job, but it’s hard,” she said. “I’m trying to find a balance, but it’s hard. I’m trying to find a way to make it work, but it’s hard.”
Applegate’s comments come as a shock to many of her fans, who have been watching her career for decades. But her openness about her health struggles is inspiring, and her words are a reminder to all of us to take care of our bodies and minds.
