Yes, even the most famous of celebrities get anxiety too!
Since becoming a major leading lady thanks to her roles in Big Love, Mamma Mia!, and Dear John, Amanda Seyfried has been undergoing cognitive therapy sessions to help cope with panic attacks brought on by the pressures of fame.
During an interview with the British edition of Glamour magazine, she admitted to feeling anxious and nervous before interviews or premieres.
Seeking professional help may have been one of the best career decisions she ever made because it sounds like it's working! She shared with the magazine:
"That's been such a great tool, and my therapist told me that I passed with flying colors, but we'll see how things go. I still do get terribly nervous, and that's partly due to the fact I think too much and overanalyze things. I'll start worrying about my parents or my dog, and I'll picture him opening the window of my apartment and falling out, even though I can't get that thing open myself."
Crazier things have happened! We're happy that Amanda is getting a grip on her fears and learning to relax.
Enjoy the perks of being famous, gurl! You deserve all the attention you get!
