Simon Cowell suffers from depression. In a candid chat with Oprah, which aired Thursday, the grouchy American Idol judge revealed he has problems maintaining friendships and relationships because he's depressed. He said, "When I'm like that I kind of feel like going into some slight hibernation. I'm very dark when I'm in those moments...I get very, very down. Don't come near me. I'm like a bear in a cage." He contributes his depressed feelings to having so many people who depend on him, "by the end of it you feel that everything's been sucked out of you because of that dependency." Even though he feels this way he says he will never take anti-depressants.
