London: "Girls" creator Lena Dunham says she suffers "more anxiety" than her on-screen character Hannah Horvath.
The 30-year-old creator, writer and star of the HBO TV series, said she shares a few personality traits with her on-screen role, but suffers from a different kind of anxiety than Hannah, reported Female First.
"At the end of the day, I would say I have more anxiety than Hannah, only because Hannah has very specific anxiety about what's going to happen to her.
"'Does this boy like me?' 'Did this job interview go OK?' I'm slightly more aware of what's happening on the planet, and I care more about how other people feel, so those are added elements to be anxious about. Sometimes when I have really bad anxiety, I do go, 'Well, I'm just Hannah today. She has so many fewer problems than I do!' And I'll just put on 'Stronger' and be her. No one's mad at her on Twitter!" Dunham said.
The actress has been diagnosed with a variety of different problems during her life, including separation anxiety, hypochondria and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
