“I had all these panic attacks. They're awful. I freeze like a rabbit. Can't speak, can't think, sweating like a bull. When I got home from doing that job, I said to myself, 'No more acting. End of films.' I really needed a big temptation to come back. I saw some doctors about getting over my panic attacks. They kind of convinced me I could", says the 49 year old actor, Hugh Grant on USA Today regarding the panic attack he got into while filming 2007 hit comedy ‘Music and Lyrics’.
Hugh Grant admitted that he almost did quit acting since then but was able to pull through.
"I'm pulled in two different directions. Part of me wants to hide, preferably under the bed, and not have anyone come near me. But I'm not happy if I'm not occasionally achieving something. My ego demands it."
At some point in our life, we all get panic attacks, event the calmest and relax person like Hugh Grant gets them too. Panic attack is not a disease and how you cope up with it is always a challenge, and Hugh Grant did one of those.Thank God he did not quit from acting, because if he did, we will surely be sad, won't you?
