Olsen: 'I'm Socially Awkward'
Actress Ashley Olsen is convinced she has below average social skills.
The 22-year-old revealed her deepest fears in a questionnaire printed in her new coffee table book, penned with twin sister Mary-Kate.
And Olsen admits her crippling shyness often holds her back and makes her scared about interacting with others - listing the affliction as her "principal defect".
She explains: "I'm really not great with crowds or big groups or public speaking. I just get very anxious. It's just something about being in front of that many people. I guess I black out - I never really remember how an interview went."
But Olsen is pleased to be finally conquering her fears after seeking help.
She adds, "You work with it. It gets easier. I haven't done press in so long."
