The 27-year-old has spent years battling panic attacks and anxiety, reports contactmusic.com.
"I like challenges. I've suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for many years and you learn to fight your fears by facing up to them," Seyfried said.
"I still fight against anxiety. It takes time, even to get to the point where although you might have a possible self-image, you still worry about silly little things.
"I know how to deal with and over time it's not going to be an issue for me. I just try to relax and have fun and not let myself get wrapped up in unimportant things," she added.
The "Lovelace" actress further said that she tries to tap into her creative side to help rid herself of nerves and painting is her absolute favourite way to unwind.
