Emma Stone Had 'Really Bad' Panic Attacks as a Child

Emma Stone Had 'Really Bad' Panic Attacks as a Child

Emma Stone wears a denim jacket over her black outfit while stepping out for lunch at Bui Sushi on Thursday (June 18) in Malibu, Calif.

The 26-year-old Aloha actress was joined by a male friend and was seen pointing out the photographers to him.

Emma is on the cover of the Wall Street Journal magazine‘s new issue and she opens up about the panic attacks she had as a child.

“It was really bad,” Emma said. “The first time I had a panic attack I was sitting in my friend’s house, and I thought the house was burning down. I called my mom and she brought me home, and for the next three years it just would not stop. I would go to the nurse at lunch most days and just wring my hands. I would ask my mom to tell me exactly how the day was going to be, then ask again 30 seconds later. I just needed to know that no one was going to die and nothing was going to change.”

FYI: Emma is wearing Finlay & Co. sunglasses and carrying a Skagen clutch.

    Why do agents tell their celeb clients to come up with these bullshit stories? To make them relatable to regular ppl? The world shouldn’t be so gullable!

    Anna Wintour mistakenly referred to her instead of Amanda Seyfried regarding their openness talking about severe panic anxiety. We know it was Amanda because it followed Amanda’s Vogue spot. Emma has never really gone into detail about panic attacks until now.

    It’s good that Emma is referring to it as panic attacks and not the severe anxiety Amanda actually gets therapy and medication for.
