Project Runway star Tim Gunn released a video on Wednesday describing how he tried to kill himself as a teenager after being bullied because he was gay.
Gunn, 57, the urbane mentor of the popular fashion design TV contest, said he had taken more than 100 pills when he was 17 in a botched suicide bid.
"As a 17 year old youth who was in quite a bit of despair, I attempted to kill myself. And I'm very happy today that that attempt was unsuccessful, but at the time it's all I could contemplate. I thought I need to end things right now."
