Amanda Seyfried meets therapist to cope with fame

Los Angeles: Hollywood actress Amanda Seyfried says she regularly meets a therapist to cope with the panic attacks she suffers because of constantly being in the public eye.

The 25-year-old who has worked in films like `Letters to Juliet` and `Red Riding Hood` says she thinks too much and over analyses things, reported Us magazine.

"Therapy has been such a great tool, and my therapist told me that I passed with flying colours, but we`ll see how things go. I still do get terribly nervous, and that`s partly due to the fact I think too much and over analyze things.

"I`ll start worrying about my parents or my dog, and I`ll picture him opening the window of my apartment and falling out, even though I can`t get that thing open myself," Seyfried said.

The actress also thinks her previous relationships with Dominic Cooper and Ryan Phillippe as contributing factors to her anxiety.

"Dominic and I were together for such a long time, so the coverage was always positive. But when you`ve just started seeing someone and that person is really famous, it`s more of a story. When I was with Ryan, people followed me so much more, and that`s probably one of the reasons that I`m not looking to date someone who`s famous now," she added.

Seyfried, who is currently dating real estate executive Andrew Joblon, added that it`s been easier to stay friends with Cooper than her other exes.

"Dom is my favourite person in the whole world and one of my closest friends. I wouldn`t ever want us to stop being open with each other. If you truly love someone, I think you should be able to tell them everything," she said.
