Emma Stone on Her Anxiety & Coping Strategies

Emma Stone on Her Anxiety & Coping Strategies”

When Colbert pulled out a drawing that Stone did to illustrate her anxiety, the actress laughed, saying, "I was in therapy at the time".

'Can I also point something out beyond this very cool photo?' Emma informed the host when shown the offending snap.

Several other A-list celebs-like Kim Kardashian, Gina Rodriguez, and Kristen Bell-have been honest about their personal experiences with anxiety in order to help raise awareness.

Emma Stone made an appearance on Tuesday evening's (September 19) episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and opened up about how improv and acting has helped her overcome her longtime struggles with anxiety. "This is me I guess".

'It's a little green monster that looks a little bit, as someone backstage said, a uterus with some ovaries'.

And she illustrated that fact with an actual illustration from way back then. "But I didn't mean for it to be hormonally related in any way". "I started at 7".

Emma Stone may have a new movie to promote, but that isn't stopping her from discussing the importance of mental health.

"I was nine and I was in therapy". And while she still has anxiety to this day, she told Colbert that she no longer suffers from panic attacks.

"I truly, as a kid, did not think I would be able to ever move away from home or to be away from people that I had separation anxiety with", she shared, explaining how therapists and various treatments helped her learn to cope, and feel comfortable enough to become independent.

Emma played the real-life tennis champ Billie Jean King competing against Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) in the feminist comedy Battle of the Sexes, which hits USA theaters Friday and United Kingdom theaters November 24.
