Actress Daryl Hannah has admitted her childhood doctors wanted her institutionalized.

In a new video exclusively obtained by, the Blade Runner icon - who turns 50 in December - revealed how her parent's divorce sparked difficulties at school, while she was growing up in Chicago.

She says she experienced a "disconnected sense of reality" and began acting out.

"My parents went through a divorce which caused me to be a little bit more withdrawn," Hannah tells Celebrity Ghost Stories.

When she was seven, Hannah -- who later starred in Splash, Wall Street and Kill Bill -- says her concerned parents took her out of school and forced her to visit a doctor, who put her through a suite of tests.

"I wasn't communicative and wasn't behaving like the rest of the kids," she says in the video.

"And they thought I needed to be on some kind of serious treatment plan and I should probably be institutionalized."

Celebrity Ghost Stories airs Saturday, October 30, at 9 p.m. on the Bio Channel.
