Celebrity phobias.

Posted Sep 22 2008 11:07am

Think success lessens anxiety? Think again. Scarlett Johansen, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Aniston, Johnny Depp -- lots of Hollywood stars live with occasionally debilitating phobias. From the article:
Jennifer Love Hewitt says she has a number of phobias, the worst of which is a fear of elevators.

"The trouble is that many of the Hollywood meetings I have to attend take place at the top of tall buildings -- and I simply cannot set foot in a lift if there are too many people in it," she says. "If there's four of five people in it, then I just about manage it."

...Kim Basinger's agoraphobia has got a little better over the years, but she admits she still often gets panic attacks in open spaces or in situations where it might be hard to leave.

"I was a shy child, but experienced my first big panic attack in my mid-twenties, when my career was taking off," she says.

"The panic became bad again during the media attention I got prior to my Oscar win, so much so that I sought specialist help."
