For "Jerry Maguire" star Jonathan Lipnicki, who, aged six, played the impossibly cute Ray Boyd, on-screen son of Renee Zellweger's single mum Dorothy, it seems it was particularly tough.

Jonathan Lipnicki Lipnicki gained fame in the late '90s to early '00s with the movies "Jerry Maguire", "Stewart Little", and "The Little Vampire".

In a bittersweet Instagram post, the 26-year-old revealed all the bullying he endured growing up, being called a "has-been" by his own classmates in high school, and dealing with panic attacks every day at the thought of going to school to endure even more. "I was told I was a has-been and would never book a job again", Lipnicki wrote in the post. "I didn't go a day without being called some form of gay slur, or a hateful slur pretty much every day of middle school", he continued.

Lipnicki said that he never normally discusses his "lifelong battle with anxiety and depression", but that he is "here to help others by sharing my experience..."

Jonathan hopes that his post will reach out to those who are also struggling with depression and anxiety.

Rumor: Leaked Document Suggests The Evil Within 2 Might Be In Development
Of course, this is a full-on rumor as nothing has been confirmed by either publisher Bethesda or developer Tango Gameworks. We should still label this as a rumor until an official announcement is made regarding the video game sequel.

"I didn't expect to feel like this, but I do", his Instagram post reads. "I love you and I hope sharing this can shed a little light in a positive way".

He explained his anxiety got so bad that he began to suffer from eczema after frequently rubbing his hands together from nervousness.

Lipnicki thanked those who support him and said he hoped children dealing with similar issues will find hope in his story. "I'm not a victim, I'm a survivor and kids will hopefully see that they can be too".

"I'm out to prove anyone wrong that's ever doubted me". I love work and I love the art of it, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to go and say, 'Look at me now.

"Your attitude determines your altitude Brother and I know that what you are doing what you are meant to do in life. He still is. He took the time and was really gracious about it, he gave me a lot of time and a lot of great advice".
