She added: “I feel myself going down a rabbit hole, you’re almost craving something negative so you can sit in a hole of sadness.

“It got to me a lot because there’s just a constant feed in your back pocket of what people think of you.

“When people are on social media they feel like whatever they write, no-one’s gonna see it, no one’s gonna read it but they do and it will affect them for a really long time.

“I went through a huge period of my life where I’d tell myself every day that I hated myself.

The actress, 22, admitted that she would say she hated herself everyday

So many of these problems are really linked to things in your past, as soon as you start digging and start asking yourself bigger questions than: Why do I hate myself? It’s more: Why do you make yourself feel this way?”

Williams said she is “still definitely really struggling to let sadness wash over me without it consuming me”.

“There was a period of time that I was really sad and then I sort of came out of that,” she said.

“It’s now really terrifying that you’re ever gonna slip back into it and I think that’s something that I’m really working on.”
