Chris Evans undergoes therapy to cope with fame

London: Hollywood actor Chris Evans says that therapy helps him get over his anxieties as he struggles to cope with the pressures of fame.

The 30-year-old Captain America: The First Avenger star says he often struggles being in the public glare and so has arranged professional help in the past to give him support and advice, reported Contactmusic.

"I struggle with anxiety sometimes, especially when promoting films like this. Just the life of doing what I do, being in the public eye, it`s a stressful environment. So it`s good to go and talk about the things that cause your anxiety," said Evans.

The actor, who pumped up his muscles for his role as the patriotic superhero says that he finds it hard to talk about himself when promoting his movies as he is a very private person.

"It`s very difficult for me to talk about myself. You feel strange, self-aware, very foolish. Your third eye clicks on, just to try and maintain a healthy sense of perspective and you think, `What am I doing here? I`m just making a movie, and people want all these things from me.`

"It seems strange to have so much fuss over a film. I`m an incredibly private person," he added.
