The ‘Stranger Things’ star tries to keep a lot of her life private and admits being famous has really hindered her battle with her mental health as people can constantly see how she struggles.
“I keep most things private in my life. Personally, I struggle with anxiety and in some ways, this has hindered it,” she says speaking to the August Digital issue of Glamour UK.
“When I’m having a bad day or I’m feeling very anxious, some things like when people say, ‘Oh, you looked bad at this award show because you looked like this or you looked like that,’ those things make me a little bit more anxious and that hinders me a little bit more," she says.
The actress stars as Sherlock Holmes’ sister in Netflix’s ‘Elona Holmes’. She admits the character has taught her a lot.
“I think Enola Holmes also taught me that being with yourself, being your own biggest critic, being your own biggest support team is so important, too. I rely on myself to give myself self-love, because that’s just literally the one way I can.”
