She wrote: “The sheer dread … that fills me when I am face-to-face with most humans … made me suffer atrociously during my life as an actress.
“In the beginning, I enjoyed having people talking about me, but very quickly, it suffocated and destroyed me. Throughout my 20 years starring in movies, each time filming began, I would break out with herpes.
“This worship of celebrity … suffocated me.”
She also suffered “distress” as she grew up with strict parents who only let her marry Vadim if he converted to catholicism, reported the Daily Mail.
