Harrison Ford Has A Mic-Drop Response To Suggestion That He Has Social Anxiety
Harrison Ford is starring in a brand new present about remedy, however that doesn’t essentially imply he’s a fan of it — or no matter armchair analysis somebody may need to supply.
“There are all kinds of therapy. I’m sure many of them are useful to many people,” the “Shrinking” star advised The Hollywood Reporter in an interview printed Wednesday. “I’m not anti-therapy for anybody — except for myself. I know who the fuck I am at this point.”
Ford supplied equally sturdy remarks when THR introduced up web customers’ “armchair diagnosis” of the actor based mostly on “things you’ve said about being shy in social situations.”
“Some assume you’ve wrestled with social anxiety disorder. Are they onto something?” the interviewer requested.
“Shit. That sounds like something a psychiatrist would say, not a casual observer,” he answered. “No. I don’t have a social anxiety disorder. I have an abhorrence of boring situations.”
He continued: “I was shy when I first went onstage — I wasn’t shy, I was fucking terrified. My knees would shake so badly, you could see it from the back of the theater.
“But that’s not social anxiety. That’s being unfamiliar with the territory. I was able to talk myself through that and then enjoy the experience of being onstage and telling a story with collaborators.”
