Meanwhile, Roseanne is not the only member of the cast who had a shocking secret. John Goodman has noted in interviews that he is an alcoholic and a depressive. He told The Guardian, it’s “a chemical thing, a brain thing”, a sense of “general dissatisfaction with everything. I don’t want to do anything, nothing seems right. I have to be doing something else, but I don’t want to do anything else.” He catches himself, seeks to lighten the mood: “It’s just nuts.”
