Amanda Seyfried opens up about OCD and anxiety issues!

Published by Courtney Hall

Amanda is beautiful, talented and funny. But the actress recently opened up to Elle UK about mental health issues that plagued her for years. “I feel terrible for the younger me, because I thought I was crazy. Where was the fear coming from? It doesn’t make any sense,” she says. “It becomes physical — I would get dizzy and cry and the lights were too bright. I had my anxiety and my OCD – a lot of kids have it. You’re afraid of it; you’re afraid of your brain.”
