Claire Danes has been in therapy for 20 years.
The stunning actress, who is dating fellow actor Billy Crudup, claims she enjoys getting psychological help - but admits it makes her more emotional.
She confessed: "It's just a great resource. I don't keep a journal, so I go to therapy. I enjoy it and I get a lot out of it.
"Although, if I weren't in therapy, I'd probably be a lot more together. My therapist is always encouraging me to be a little sloppier and more honest and expressive."
Claire also revealed one of the main issues she discusses is her fear of being alone.
She told America's Gotham magazine: "It's hard for me to admit I have needs - that's the big theme. I'm also really terrible at being alone.
"I confuse being alone with being lonely. I panic when there isn't another person present. So I'm trying to panic less and learn I'm not going to disappear if there's no 'witness'."
