Grant Gustin Opens Up About Having Anxiety Since He Was 5 Years Old

Grant Gustin is opening up about his struggles with anxiety and depression, which started when he was a very young boy.

The 30-year-old Flash star spoke to Michael Rosenbaum on his Inside of You podcast and shared that his struggles started at “probably 4 or 5.”

“I knew I had always dealt with anxiety, but getting pinpointed ideas about where things started and why you were feeling that way,” Grant shared. “Anxiety is ever-present in my life, for sure.”

He continued, saying that he’s been getting better: “I’ve come a long way with taking a little pressure off myself…I’ve always been really hard on myself and I still am, but I put way too much pressure on myself early on and got in my way a lot and I think it shows, in my opinion at least, in the work, like how wound up I was and how focused I was on getting it right. It gets in your way for sure.”
