Perhaps, Linda’s bipolar disorder is partly to blame for what has happened next – her constant mood swings and uncontrolled aggression drove not only her but her entire family mad. Up until the middle of the 1990s she would self-medicate with alcohol and rely on prescription drugs to take her emotional pain away. She was finally diagnosed in 1995 but publically spoke about her condition in 2005 for the first time.
The relationship wasn’t working. “I think what happened there is that he really fell in love with Sarah Connor. And I did, too… We were just really not meant to be together.”
The actress has been single as a matter of principle since the early 2000s. According to Linda, she prefers to be alone, as she never feels lonely in that relationship. She also practices celibacy (sexual abstinence) and doesn’t feel in any way deprived because of this.
That relationship was a mystery to all of us – even Jim and myself – because we are terribly mismatched.
Apart from filming, Linda loves to visit Europe, watch football and ride horses. Reportedly, she can’t live without ice cream and spends her weekends in Alaska fishing.
Well at this point in my life of 27, 28 years later, I don’t have much to prove, do you know what I mean? I don’t think coming back to play Sarah Connor is going to pigeon hole me, it was a rich opportunity that I couldn’t ignore.
