Actress Emma Stone, now in the movie “The Amazing Spider Man” as the character Gwen Stacy, is well loved by her fans and peers alike, but this was not always the case. As a child, she endured bullying and struggled with insecurities which reared their ugly heads as panic attacks. As an young girl, Emma often felt lost in ways to deal with her anxiety, usually avoiding social settings or being the center of attention.“The Amazing Spider Man” actress Emma Stone is well known in the entertainment business. She seems to be liked by her peers as well. But what many do not know is that Stone has suffered from anxiety for some time now.

As a child, she went through a great deal of bullying and struggled with insecurities which reared their ugly heads as panic attacks.

As an young girl, Emma felt unable to cope with her anxiety, often times avoid social setting altogether.

However, recent reports share her situation changed when she gave in and took the stage to act; she immediately fell in love with the craft and noticed her symptoms dissipate!

It is not unusual for someone suffering from panic attacks to find a new avenue through which to alleviate their symptoms.

In the case of Emma Stone, currently dating her costar Andrew Garfield, acting took on a new meaning for her – it became a way for her to feel ‘normal’, a way to relieve any sense of nervousness or insecurity that might be playing her at any given moment.

Emma reflects on her view of acting as a safe space for her:  “I met other people like me, who liked the same things I liked. It became this place where I could be myself and express myself.”

She continues: “It gave me a sense of purpose. I wanted to make people laugh. Comedy was my sport. It taught me how to roll with the punches.”

In Hollywood, actors and actresses are usually painted as being infallible, untouched by any mental health concerns.

In fact, quite the opposite is often true – they are facing one mental health ailment or another. Stars such actress Emma Stone give problems such as panic attacks a face. Panic attacks impact someone’s functioning, but they do not need to take over someone’s life.
