J.Lo's anxiety attacks
09:30 29 January 2005
Jennifer Lopez has revealed she suffered from anxiety attacks after first finding fame.
The sexy star admits she found it difficult to deal with people recognising her.
She said: "I was like, 'Oh my God, I can't walk down the street without people knowing my name, knowing things about me. They were full-on anxiety attacks - you feel like you're going to have a heart attack."
Although she still occasionally suffers from anxiety attacks, J.Lo now says she is able to deal with them.
She added: "They occur once in a while but now I can control them. I know how to calm myself down. I'm more at peace."
The beauty also revealed how she was inspired to be a performer after seeing classic Hollywood musical 'West Side Story'.
She told Britain's InStyle magazine: "I remember watching Rita Moreno in 'West Side Story' and going, 'That's what I want to do. I want to perform, I want to sing, I want to dance and I want to act.'"
