It's not a great secret that comedians often suffer from bouts of depression or other forms of mental illness and since there are plenty of Jewish comedians out there, the correlation between the two isn't such an enigma.

So this week, prior to Zach Braff attending the Golden Globes (and perhaps to excuse his poor sport behavior when he was slighted for a "Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical" award), Jewtastic reported that Braff battles with depression.This information was based on an interview he did with Us magazine recently in which he said, " I don’t care about image and all that nonsense. I’m in sweat pants every day. I don’t play the game at all.” Braff left out the part where he mentions he doesn't leave his house. Sweat pants? LA? Who are you trying to kid, here?

Anywho Jewtastic also reported that Ben Stiller might be bipolar, but Stiller has shrugged off the rumors.

I'd have to side with Stiller's defense. No one wants to be lumped in the woe-is-me-I'm a self-pitying-sonovabitch-who-gets-millions-tossed-at-me-to-be-funny, yet I still can't bring myself to take off my sweats category. That can only be bad publicity.
