Olivia Munn is known for being a smart and sexy beauty. Now the Magic Mike star has revealed she suffers from a bizarre anxiety disorder that causes her to pull out her eyelashes!

“I don’t bite my nails, but I rip out my eyelashes,” the actress who also stars in the new HBO hit, Newsroom, told The New York Daily News.

“It doesn’t hurt, but it’s really annoying. Every time I run out of the house, I have to stop and pick up a whole set of fake eyelashes.”

The condition, Trichoillomania, is classified as an impulse control disorder, and can cause those afflicted to pull out hair from any part of their body; eyebrows and eyelashes are the most common.

Her anxiety, Munn admitted, also impacts how she relates to people socially.

“I don’t want people to be mean to me,” she said. “As an Air Force kid, I moved around a lot when I was younger and no one was nice to the new kid. So there is always this feeling that someone will make fun of me.”
