Claire Danes Loves Therapy

Claire DanesClaire Danes has been in therapy for 20 years. The stunning actress, who is dating 'Big Fish' star Billy Crudup, claims she enjoys getting psychological help - but admits it makes her more of an emotional person.

She confessed: "It's just a great resource. I don't keep a journal, so I go to therapy. I enjoy it and I get a lot out of it. Although, if I weren't in therapy, I'd probably be a lot more together. My therapist is always encouraging me to be a little sloppier and more honest and expressive."

Claire has revealed one of the main issues she discusses with her therapist is her fear of being alone. She told Gotham magazine: "It's hard for me to admit that I have needs - that's the big theme. I'm also really terrible at being alone. I confuse being alone with being lonely. I kind of panic when there isn't another person present. So I'm trying to panic less and learn that I'm not going to disappear if there's no 'witness.'"
