When Ellen Page faced panic attacks

Los Angeles, Feb 15 (IANS) Actress Ellen Page says she faced panic attacks and depression because she couldn’t relate to “gender conformity”.

The “Freehold” actress, who came out as gay two years ago, shared that she struggled with depression earlier in her career and struggled to take the time to properly assess how she really felt, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“When you’re on that track you’re a racehorse, going and going with these blinders on. You don’t stop to address how you feel,” Elle magazine quoted Page as saying.

“I’d get panic attacks and sense an incredible discomfort because I didn’t relate to the conformity that comes with my gender such as wearing feminine dresses on shoots. I was doing something I love and also wondering, ‘What’s wrong with me?’,” she added.
