Lena Headey has dealt with a roller coaster of emotions in the last few years, but the Game of Thrones star has found a way to bounce back.

The brunette beauty filed for divorce from her husband (and father of 5-year-old son Wylie) Peter Loughran back in 2012, and now during an interview with More magazine (on newsstands now), the 41-year-old HBO star explains how she got through the difficult time and how she's coping now.

"It's tough," she said of ending her marriage. "There's a lot of hurt and sadness and disappointment. Grief. Massive grief. It's a mourning process, and yet nobody's died."

And Headey didn't shy away from revealing that she had her experiences with depression, but luckily, those dark days haven't resurfaced in a while.

"I haven't had a spell in a long time. I think some people's brains are just wired that way if you're a thinker," she says.

"People who never get anxious always amaze me. The world could be breaking up and they're saying, ‘Everything's fine!' Getting older and having kids, you learn how to become less serious about it all."

But although Headey, who is pregnant with baby No. 2, is open about her past struggles with love and loss, don't expect her to be as forthcoming with her current love life and pregnancy (like, for example, who the father is?!).

"I like to keep my personal life private," she tells the mag.

At the time of her split, the actress revealed some shocking news—she was down to less than $5 in her bank account.

"At the present time, I have less than $5 in my bank account and have been using credit cards to pay for living expenses for myself and our son Wylie," stated Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister on the HBO hit, in the 79-page filing obtained by E! News at the time.

Perhaps that's why the celeb maintains a realistic approach to her success in the industry. "Nothing is concrete. Right now I'm having a very great moment, but it's a moment, and I always think, OK, worst-case scenario: Could I survive in my car? Would this be OK? My friends call it disaster thinking. I like to think of it as realism."
