Kristen Johnston: Cory Monteith's Death Is 'Not Shocking'

Posted: Updated:

Kristen Johnston, the "3rd Rock From The Sun" actress, joined HuffPost Live today and weighed in on Cory Monteith's death.

"Whatever happened, I'm sure it was somehow involved with his addiction," she said. "It's just terribly, terribly sad. However, it's completely not shocking to me."

She continued by saying that she believes drug abuse is no more prevalent in celebrities than the rest of the world, but that the media portrays it as an epidemic of the Hollywood elite. Johnston's memoir, "Guts," which was released last year, outlined her life-long substance addiction.

The 45-year-old actress battled many personal issues that she reveals in her story, and six-and-a-half years after getting clean, she can now personally weigh in on the pressures that lead to drug and alcohol abuse.
