The Hairspray actress shocked her fans and showbiz by shaving her hair. Appearing on Good Morning America several days ago, Lake tearfully opened up about her hair loss as a result of depression, pregnancy, weight loss, and the use of chemicals.

The 51-year-old confessed she had suffered from hair loss for 30 years. There were times when Ricki Lake felt depressed, scared, and frustrated. She felt like something was wrong with her, but she started 2020 with a new mindset — she wrapped up her mind to become a real person, even with a hellish hair loss situation.

The TV presenter also added that she had suffered from this hell in silence and that nearly nobody in life knew "the level of deep pain and trauma" she had experienced.

There have been a few times where I have even felt suicidal over it. Almost no one in my life knew the level of deep pain and trauma I was experiencing ... I am liberated. I am free. I am releasing and letting go. I am brave. I am beautiful I am love.
