“It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition,” said Applegate. “It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going.” “Now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing.” Applegate won an Emmy in 2003 for a guest spot on “Friends” along with a Tony Award nomination for the musical “Sweet Charity.” Her films she is famous for are – “The Sweetest Thing,” “Anchorman,” “Hall Pass” and “Bad Moms.”
