Chris Rock spent his time in quarantine grappling with his past and tackling difficult truths in therapy.

During the latest episode of CBS Sunday Morning, the 55-year-old comedian sat outside his New Jersey estate with Gayle King for an interview that delved into his personal life.

Rock, who recently received praise for his role in “Fargo,” told King that he attended therapy before coronavirus, but sessions ticked up when the pandemic began in March.

“I really jumped into it after Covid, and I’m still doing it,” he said. “I do about seven hours a week.”

He admitted that he still struggled with the emotional damage he suffered as a child in Brooklyn, where he was bullied as a Black child in an all-white school.

“You have to tell the truth,” Rock said of his time in therapy. “Sometimes I wasn’t kind. Sometimes I wasn’t listening and sometimes I was selfish. Ultimately, who do you want to be?”

When prompted by King to share some of his personal discoveries, Rock opened up about his “hardest truth.”
