London, May 9 : 'American Idol' judge Simon Cowell has recounted his teenage years, revealing that he felt suicidal when he was younger.
In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Cowell confessed that he was on the brink of killing himself as a teen because he was fed-up with the rules or discipline.
"I was always bored. I didn't like the rules and I didn't like discipline," the Mirror quoted him, as saying.
"So when someone said to me, 'These are the best days of your life', I actually thought about jumping off a bridge.
"So I would feel guilty about giving people fake hope when they have no hope.
"I was like, 'If it gets any worse than this I'm done', because I hated school and I hated my life," he added.
