Julia Fox details struggle with ADHD and reveals she smokes marijuana to quiet her OCD


Uncut Gems alum Julia Fox detailed her struggles functioning with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in a TikTok she filmed in her bathroom.

‘It’s been very difficult,’ the Italian-born, Manhattan-raised 32-year-old admitted last Friday.

‘I have bouts of, like, great productivity where I’m on top of the world and, like, just feeling, like, I’m invincible. And then, I have moments of like, deep, deep, deep, stagnant type of feeling, like I just can’t f***ing move.’

‘It’s been very difficult’: Uncut Gems alum Julia Fox detailed her struggles functioning with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder on top of obsessive-compulsive disorder in a TikTok she filmed in her bathroom

It’s the first time Julia revealed her diagnosis with the condition where an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity interferes with functioning or development.

‘I’ve never, like, really talked about it but, like, ADHD is really tough,’ Fox stated.

The Tommy Hilfiger catwalker ‘just realized’ she also suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, in which persistent/unwanted thoughts/urges/images become intrusive and cause distress or anxiety.

‘I used to count the number of letters inside of words in my head, and I’d always want them to reach to 10, and if I’m not smoking weed, I’m literally counting,’ Julia continued.

Fox continued: 'So, the weed quiets down the OCD, but it does not help with the productivity issue with the ADHD. Ugh, it's just too much!'

It was all an an answer to a fan's question about 'navigating a career while being neurodivergent'

Fox continued: ‘So, the weed quiets down the OCD, but it does not help with the productivity issue with the ADHD. Ugh, it’s just too much!’

On Sunday, Julia – who boasts 1.9M Instagram/TikTok followers – Instastoried a sweet snap of her 20-month-old son Valentino riding a tricycle.

Fox mothered little Valentino during her three-year marriage to Brooklyn private pilot Peter Artemiev, which ended last year.

The ZEITmagazin cover girl is predicted to be one of the hottest Halloween costumes this month, so expect to see people rocking daring underwear-as-outerwear looks including the ‘bralaclava.’

In March, Julia told Variety that her former flame Kanye ‘Ye’ West will not appear in her upcoming memoir-style ‘masterpiece’ book, which was ‘halfway done’ and should hit shelves ‘in about a year.’

Fox has several acting projects including Tony Kaye’s dark comedy The Trainer, the Carrie White biopic Upper Cut, and she’s the frontrunner to play Debi Mazar in Madonna’s self-directed Universal Pictures biopic.
