"There was this pressure, I think of where you think you're supposed to be at a certain age. I think, for some reason, 40 for me really made me analyse my life and I just felt really overwhelmed. There was this intense pressure from everyone. Like, 'you have to look the best you've ever looked walking down the stairs to your party!' I don't like being the center of attention, so I don't even know," she said on In The Room

Fortunately, she woke up on her birthday "feeling so good."
