Panic attack Emma Stone feared dying in fire
LA LA LAND star Emma Stone has revealed she suffers from anxiety and panic attacks.
The 29-year-old (pictured) has said she was ‘very grateful’ at not being aware of her condition until later life as it could have harmed her chances of success.
Speaking to mental health group Child Mind Institute on YouTube she said she had her first panic attack aged seven, four years before she started acting.
‘I was at a friend’s house, and I was convinced the house was burning down. There was nothing in me that didn’t think we were going to die,’ she said.
‘I am very grateful I didn’t know I had a disorder. I wanted to be an actor and there weren’t a lot of actors who spoke about having panic attacks.’
