The Newsroom star Olivia Munn, 33, recently revealed that she suffers from a disorder that has her pulling out her own eyelashes due to severe anxiety.

"It's called trichotillomania," she tells People. "It's the same thing as people who bite their nails."

Her disorder started when she was 26 years old.

"If I were to walk into someone's birthday party, I'd have a bad anxiety attack," she explains.

But she's found a way to work around the issue aesthetically.

"I just created my own little lash-band with individuals," she says. She also has a "powder mix" that she applies to her eyelids to help the false lashes adhere.
