Mariah Carey: Glitter Almost Killed Me
Mariah Carey is trying to make a name for herself in the world of acting, but it hasn't been easy, especially after the disaster that was Glitter.

Mariah admits that her 2001 movie Glitter almost killed her because it led to her emotional breakdown. She simply couldn't deal with the movie being such a failure.

“Being here is definitely a milestone. But I had one milestone that almost had me under this stone,” Mariah told Fox News at the AFI screening of Precious on Sunday night.

“I didn’t realize you really have to be selective with the people that you work with and you have to have that support system and you have to work with people that you feel are geniuses.”

“This was such a liberating experience and yet humiliating,” she added. “But I needed that. We all need that, we need to understand how to be humble and it’s a difficult business to do that in. But I’m definitely inspired to work out of my comfort zone after this.”

Mariah's been getting great reviews for her role in 'Precious' so clearly her Glitter days are behind her.
