Kate Bosworth may seem like an easy-going, free spirit, but the actress has revealed that she gets panic attacks, and has bouts with anxiety.
"I’m not someone who is a stranger to panic attacks or anxiety," Bosworth, 28, tells the March issue of "Nylon," on sale next Tuesday.
Bosworth says her real-life experience with anxiety helped her with her role as a self-mutilating college student in "Another Happy Day" by writer/director Sam Levinson. "I've been more artistically fulfilled this past year than I have ever been," she says. "Sam wasn’t fearful of the dark places, and I think I have a healthy amount of dark places to go to."
"I’ve had my fair share of on-the-verge moments in my life, so it was really kind of tapping into my own life experience, and that gets a little weird," says Bosworth, who was shot by Marvin Scott Jarrett for the "Nylon" cover. "It’s what we live for as actors, to soar to that moment when you sort of leave everything behind. But it’s also the scariest because you’re getting lost in yourself and touching a nerve that, on a day-to-day basis, you armor.”
