Zachary Levi opens up about his Hollywood plans and more!

Zachary Levi is the main star of the Shazam! movie series and even the one, who is also responsible for a few of the many false dawns of the previous DC film franchise. He has received praise for his portrayal of the superhero he plays in the movie, which is still arguably DC’s best effort in more than ten years, but in reality, he is not quite that character in real life.

However, the Remember Sunday actor revealed that this sort of mythical conflict role typically falls short in comparison to his very real, ongoing struggle with depression and anxiety. 

In The Joe Rogan Experience, the actor discussed his struggle with mental illness and said that he thinks that going to therapy and getting the support he required ultimately saved his life.

“My whole life I’ve been struggling with clinical depression at various times, struggling with anxiety probably my entire life. I figured out what I was going through and how I got there and why I ended up being who I was. [I got] all the help I needed to get.”

He continued by saying that although the world is full of issues, the root of every issue is someone’s broken heart or broken mind. He is convinced that we can ultimately reverse the negative trends in this world.

“If we just go heal people, heal their minds, heal their hearts, and start trying to figure out how to truly love themselves and us then figuring out how to love other people.”

According to reports, the Office Uprising actor initially was requested to play a supporting role in Shazam! However, he did, in fact, turn down the offer.

When Zachary Levi praised Jordan Peterson on Joe Rogan’s podcast!

Zachary Levi appeared to be competing with a few of his fellow DC actors for the tag of “please never come back to your role.”And due to this, his past relationships with right-wing conspiracy theorists and his anti-vaccine stance have come to light.

The 42-year-old actor started his own potential fall when he tweeted that he disagreed with the unfounded claim that the Pfizer vaccine was a “real danger to the world” and that it should be avoided. It only gets worse, with his old appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience where we saw him praising Jordan Peterson. The Statement actor praised Jordan Peterson, a contentious pseudointellectual, as one of the world’s most profound thinkers.
