London: Actress Amanda Seyfried feels ready to start a family.
The 29-year-old "Ted 2" actress is dating actor Justin Long, 37.
"I want a child. Badly. I want to be a mother, badly. That's what I feel. I've been feeling it for like, two years. I'm not ready but nobody's ready. It changes everything... So how you can ever be ready for that?" she said.
Seyfried suffers from anxiety and regularly goes to therapy to help her cope. "It's coping with life. I've been told to not talk about it, but (anxiety) is so very common. I just think, you go to your doctor about heart problems, or an eye doctor if you have an infection, you have to take care of yourself.
"Mental health is so segregated, it sucks. You don't necessarily have to have something chemically wrong with your brain to have mental health issues," the actress said.
