Sad reality behind the facade of a fickle Hollywood paradise
The case against Jim Carrey by the mother of the late Cathriona White, says Sarah Caden, exposes the lie beneath the LA dream
In a piece published in the Sunday Independent in April, Sarah Molloy described what she was doing when she heard that her sister, Cathriona White, had died by suicide in LA.
Sarah was at home in Australia, singing along to the Josh Thompson song Cold Beer With Your Name On It. The lyrics made her think of her sister, she wrote: "I hear you're out there now and you're doing alright/ A new lease on life in Hollywood…/ Bet the west coast sun looks good on you."
And then, she wrote: "The phone rang and the news came. Cathriona had taken an overdose of pills and was dead."
