AceShowbiz - In Emma Stone's case, popularity can't be blamed for the origin of her problem. Having been dreaming of an acting career since she was a kid, the Gwen Stacy of "The Amazing Spider-Man" film series has been dealing with panic attacks since she was 7 years old, which caused a decline in her social skills, and always struggled with it growing up.
Fortunately, her parents noticed her issue and brought her to seek professional's help, but her therapist and her parents didn't tell her about her diagnosis at the time. "I am very grateful I didn't know that I had a disorder. I wanted to be an actor and there weren't a lot of actors who spoke about having panic attacks," she said about how being in therapy could be seen as "embarrassing or shameful." Crediting her participation in local theater plays for helping her cure the attacks, the 29-year-old still continues with her therapy sessions even to this day.
