Wilson sat down with Mark Steines and Debbie Matenopoulos on Hallmark Channel's Home & Family, where she got candid about her own painful battle with postpartum depression following the birth of her first daughter, Lola, in April 2005.
"Part of the issue with postpartum is that women are afraid of their feelings and they're afraid that they're crazy," she shared. "They're scared when [they're having] what should be the most joyous and wonderful times of their lives, but they're feeling sad or they're feeling scared or they're feeling, in my case, psychotic."

Publicly, studio executives tend to be a rosy bunch, predicting that each year’s crop of movies will be better than that which preceded it. But behind closed doors, few in the business were expecting much from 2016.
When the final numbers are tallied, the global box office will probably fall short of last year’s record-breaking $38.9 billion.

After years of explosive growth, in which returns were expanding at a 40% clip annually, revenue in China was essentially flat in 2016 — a disappointment for the world’s second-largest film market, which had been expected to surpass the U.S. in terms of revenue in a matter of months.
