Amanda+Seyfried+Long+Hairstyles+Long+Side+s8mv0Oi4SYNl Lovelace star Amanda Seyfried suffers from crippling anxiety. The actress has spent years learning how to deal with panic attacks and anxiety and she mostly manages to keep things under control, however she still has to deal with anxiety sometimes.

She explained: ”I like challenges. I’ve suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for many years and you learn to fight your fears by facing up to them. I still fight against anxiety. It takes time, even to get to the point where although you might have a possible self-image, you still worry about silly little things. I know how to deal with and over time it’s not going to be an issue for me. I just try to relax and have fun and not let myself get wrapped up in unimportant things.”

I have this amazing craft room in Los Angeles that overlooks the city, with a window onto a big backyard. It’s heaven on earth. My dog sits under my desk and I will pain literally for hours. It’s amazing. It’s the best feeling in the world,” she said.
