Hanratty opened up about her life in an interview with POPSugar. She says that when it comes to acting, she took things slow. "We didn't have the money for us to come and stay in LA for very long," Hanratty explains. "I remember my mom being like, 'You only have these couple of days.' And my sister came, and thankfully she booked a commercial, which gave us enough money to last for another week. And then I booked a commercial after that week, and then we had enough money to last another week." 


She Accepts Herself


Hanratty has been on a journey of self-discovery, and she tells POPSugar that she's more accepting of herself. "I've been able to really be open about my own sexuality and just learn so much more about myself. I've always been very accepting of other people, but not of myself. And it's one of those places that you're, like, deconstructing and reconstructing all these things that you've been taught growing up, you know? I'm really happy to be in a safe place like that."


She Has Support

Hanratty says that she is lucky to have a supportive family. She revealed to POPSugar that her mother helped her out of a rough time. "I definitely went down a rocky path for a second," Hanratty says. "I was struggling a lot with my drinking. And I went down what could have been a really bad path, and thankfully, I snapped out of it pretty quickly. And I have a mom who's like, 'You need to get your sh*t together.'"


She Takes Medication

Hanratty is open about taking medication and going to therapy. "I started seeing a therapist out there, which was great, but I was like, 'I need something else,'" she says to POPSugar. "And so, it was the first time that I really talked to a doctor about getting on an antianxiety medication, so I'm now on Zoloft. And it's helped in the sense that I don't realize it's helped, but I also don't have panic attacks every day."


She Spends Time Outside

Hanratty loves to spend time outside. She revealed in this Instagram post that being outside helps with her mental wellbeing. "I just started new anti anxiety meds, and so far so good. A couple of bumps in the road, but that's to be expected when transitioning to new meds. Being out in nature has really helped me this week while my body acclimates."
