5 Celebrities that Embraced their Incontinence

Millions of people across the world suffer from urinary incontinence, but more often than not many of these people feel like they are having to go through this experience alone. It was (and to a large extent still is) a taboo subject but things are changing and some celebrities have spoken out about their experiences suffering with incontinence in an effort to let others know that they are not alone.

Kris Jenner
The television personality has often opened up about her bladder problems on KUWTK. She has no shame in admitting her use of continence management products at various star studded events.

Stephen King
Famous for novels such as Carrie and The Shining, he had a scare when he thought he was suffering with bladder cancer. However, this just turned out to be a urinary tract infection and though his treatment was effective he keeps incontinence products close to hand.

Samuel L. Jackson
The actor developed a loss of bladder control in his late 40s and admitted that initially he was embarrassed. However, he was soon quoted saying “I realized that this was a problem that millions of Americans dealt with every day.”

Katy Perry
During her high school years, the pop star suffered from frequent urinary complications. “Most people don’t know this, but I actually wore diapers pretty regularly during high school. Looking back I can’t say that I enjoyed wearing diapers in high school, but I think that the whole experience made me a stronger and more understanding person.”

Kate Winslet
The star recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show where she explained that she developed stress urinary incontinence after having three children. Winslet says that she experiences bladder leakages when she sneezes or if she jumps on a trampoline.

The truth is that up to one in every three women suffers from the condition at some point in their lives, according to a study published in Reviews in Urology.
