During a recent interview with New York Daily News, Magic Mike star Olivia Munn revealed that she suffers from trichoillomania, a rare anxiety disorder that causes her to rip out her eyelashes when she becomes nervous.
I don’t bite my nails, but I rip out my eyelashes… It doesn’t hurt, but it’s really annoying. Every time I run out of the house, I have to stop and pick up a whole set of fake eyelashes.
The disorder, causes individuals who are affected by it to pull out their body hair when they experience anxiety. Apparently, the eyebrows and eyelashes are the most common sites to “pull”.
The Newroom actress shared that her disorder stems from her desire to be liked,
I don’t want people to be mean to me. As an Air Force kid, I moved around a lot when I was younger and no one was nice to the new kid. So there is always this feeling that someone will make fun of me.
Who on earth would be mean to this raven-haired beauty!? It just shows that you never know how your words are going to affect someone and we should all stop and take a moment before we say something that might follow someone for the rest of their life.
