The ator recently spoke out about finally seeing a psychiatrist who diagnosed him with anxiety.
He said to try to beat it he took medication, pushed himself in the gym and shared his thoughts on Twitter.
But now he reveals he finally has control of the gruelling condition after retraining his brain.
He said: “Everyone has a mental trigger that can help with recovery.
“For me, it was thinking, ‘Do I want to be surrounded by my family on my deathbed wishing I had worried more?’
