Jonathan Winters Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Jonathan Winters' career was unaccountably shadowed by two highly publicized nervous breakdowns, the result of an undiagnosed bipolar disorder exacerbated by alcohol and caffeine. Since the early 1960s, Winters was on lithium and did not not suffer any manic-depressive episodes. Yet, because he was one of the first celebrities to "go public" with his problems, he was stigmatized and, even some 40 years later, his "problems" were still mentioned in articles and profiles.
