DARYL HANNAH MAY BE SHY, BUT SHE’S NOT AUTISTIC
This week Daryl Hannah made the “shocking revelation” that she suffers from autism and had “debilitating shyness” as a child. Sorry, but we’re not buying it. Daryl is far too accomplished an actress. Daryl believes she has a form of autism called Asperger’s Syndrome but there’s more to this disorder than extreme shyness. People with Asperger’s are of normal intelligence but cannot react appropriately in social situations. They have great difficulty developing friendships or sharing pleasant activities with others. They simply don’t understand other people and cannot share feelings or humor. Daryl is a successful actress who has understood and played many types of characters. She has dated some of the hottest guys in Hollywood – not to mention John F Kennedy Jr. She seems to have no trouble socializing. (We’ve seen her at parties.) We have our doubts about her self diagnosis.
