Actress Aya Sugimoto, 42, revealed this week that she tried to commit suicide when she was 15. Sugimoto tells all in her autobiography, "Rebel Life," which was released last week.
The book recounts her suicide attempt, as well as her marriage and divorce and the foundation of her own company. Sugimoto said: “I didn't intend to write as much as I did. It took a lot of courage. Writing the book helped me to see my own weaknesses and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
She gave no further details on the suicide attempt, except to say, "You'll have to read the book."© Japan Today
