What’s worse: biting your nails or pulling out your eyelashes?

Hollywood hottie, Oliva Munn, surprisingly suffers from one of these conditions.

The Newsroom actress is guilty of ripping out her eyelashes, telling the New York Daily News: “I don’t bite my nails, but I rip out my eyelashes.”

Is this a serious medical disorder?

In the recent interview, Munn admitted that she suffers from social anxiety disorder and trichotillomania — a chronic control disorder that causes those affected to impulsively break off/pull out their hair — In Olivia Munn’s case, her poor eye lashes.

Munn said, “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.”

Fake eyeslashes may not be that big of a deal considering how much of a fad they are in Hollywood right now, but the real problem stems in social situations.

“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,” Munn explained.

She isn’t the only sexy celeb to feel awkward in group settings.

Retro icon and beauty Marilyn Monroe was in a constant battle with social anxiety — often taking medications to sedate herself.

Batman star Kim Basinger is another stunner to suffer from this illness, which has come out in the form of panic attacks — apparent during the 1998 Academy Awards, when she stuttered throughout her well-rehearsed acceptance speech.
