"I think I suffer from some mild depression," he told Parade magazine. "So to have millions of people go, 'I watched your movie and related' was the ultimate affirmation that I'm not a freak."
That is always comforting to know. But the same can't necesarily be said of his ex, Mandy Moore.
For some odd reason, the cute actress has been seen out on the town with Adam "DJ A.M." Goldstein.
"We were together for a while, and that is the only true thing that has ever been written about my romantic life," Braff joked.
Nominated for a Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy series for Scrubs, Braff says he has yet to decide whether or not the beloved series will continue, but does feel "optimistic that there will be a seventh season."
In the meantime, he is readying another film, Fast Track, with Amanda Peet, a romantic comedy due out in March about a family man who is saddled with a bad job.
"At my age, those are the things you are always talking about," Braff said, explaining that the comedy has real-life implications. "If I'm going to have kids, how will that change things? I like to think that all of the introspection leads to something really funny."
