How She Overcame Her Anxieties in Life

At the mere age of eight, she began to experience panic attacks and she would feel immobilized and afraid for no apparent reason while also feeling constantly anxious to the point where she didn't want to hang out with friends or anyone in general. She was diagnosed to be borderline agoraphobic and soon after began therapy. The therapy sessions lasted for several years and when she was eleven she enrolled in a theater class where she got her interest for comedy which eased her panic attacks and her anxiety. Today although her anxiety will most likely never go away, she now understand and is comfortable at controlling her anxiety by doing certain activities that include baking and creative work especially when she is on set. Emma Stone is a great example of a role model who has taken control of her anxiety, like so many celebrities are doing today and she is willing to speak about her experiences and she wants to help others too.

"I didn't want to go to my friends' houses or hang out with anybody, and nobody really understood."

"I was just kind of immobilized by it."

"I remember the day I wrapped 'Easy A.' Getting into the car as the sun was coming up because it had been a night shoot... It felt like a house had been lifted off of me. I felt a great deal of pressure making that movie, because in my personal life at the time, too, things were just... It was like a hurricane."
