We can’t believe someone as beautiful and talented as Kim Basinger would ever have to deal with anxiety!
But it’s true! The Oscar winner recently admitted that there was a time in her life when she couldn’t even get through the day without taking medication to calm her down!
Kim shared how hard it used to be for her, explaining:
"In this business you can be at the top of the world and at the bottom of the barrel, and you're grape juice. I've been at both ends. It can make you become what you really are.”
Thankfully, Kim is in a much better place now and says she’s struggling from anxiety far less and doing it WITHOUT any drugs! She admitted:
"Now I wake up and enjoy life. I didn't want to live on drugs. I wanted to face everything I was afraid of.”
Good for you, gurl!
And how's this for meeting her fears head on: Kim got up the nerve to go skydiving!
"Falling 12,500 feet out of an airplane was exhilarating!”
HA! Who needs meds when you can just jump out of a plane!
We’re glad you’re doing so well now!
