The utterly beautiful Mia Tyler, once nearly committed suicide because of self-esteem issues. In her memoir that just came out she says she had problems with her body image, drugs and self mutilation.

Steve Tyler's eldest daughter says that she was sitting on the edge of the balcony in a Hollywood Hills estate, considering throwing herself off the ledge, "I was going to kill myself...One thing I knew for sure: If I jumped, no one would find me at the bottom of the canyon. I sat down and let my legs dangle over the edge. I puffed on a joint ... I wondered if it was going to hurt. If it did, it wouldn't matter for more than an instant, right?"
