Many actors & well known stars go through this. Take Ryan Reynolds for instance... Even though doctors hadn't diagnosed Ryan with an actual anxiety disorder until after filming Deadpool, he had struggled with anxiety symptoms for many years.
He told The New York Times "I have anxiety. I've always had anxiety - Both in the lighthearted 'I'm anxious about this' kind of thing, and I've been to the darker end of the spectrum which is not fun"...and I'm sure a lot of you will agree!
Ryan also explained to Variety the anxiety he went through whilst filming Deadpool. "I never ever slept. Or I was sleeping at a perfect right angle - just sitting straight, constantly working at the same time. By the time we were in post (production), we'd been to Comic-Con, and people went crazy for it. The expectations were eating me alive". It is shocking, and also not, how many actors do suffer with anxiety. And it is great too how many open up about it.
See - THIS is why I LOVE what I do.
