Maisie Williams, AKA the legend that plays the single most badass woman on television, has opened up about her mental health in an interview with Fearne Cotton.

After emerging in the acting scene at an early age through her Game of Thrones role as Arya Stark, Williams has had to face a barrage of negative comments on social media since her fame originated.

Speaking to Cotton on her Happy Place podcast, the actress said that it became “impossible to turn a blind eye” to the ruthlessly mean comments. 

“It gets to a point where you're almost craving something negative so you can sit in a hole of sadness,” she added. “It's really bizarre the way that it starts to consume you."

Her co-star, Sophie Turner, recently made an appearance on the Dr Phil show to discuss her own struggles with depression, citing social media as the cause. Hateful comments about her weight, acting abilities and skin were posted online, when she was just a teenager.

Maisie explained that she finds herself experiencing life-altering feelings of self-hatred, which must be incredibly difficult to overcome. “It's something I'm really trying to break free from at the moment," she said.

"I went through a huge period of my life where I'd tell myself every day that I hated myself. It got to a point where I'd be in a conversation with my friends and my mind would running and running, and I'd be thinking about all the stupid things I've said in my life and it would just race and race.

"We'd be talking and I'd be like 'I hate myself'.”

Williams began attempting to discover why exactly these emotions were haunting her, and turned to her past for answers;

"So many of these problems are really linked to things in your past,” she explained, “as soon as you start digging and start asking yourself bigger questions than: Why do I hate myself? It's more: Why do you make yourself feel this way?"

The star confirmed that, at the moment, mental health is something she is “really working on”.

“One thing I learnt is that everyone is a little bit sad and it was really eye-opening to me to understand that I think," she continued. "The more we talk and the more we help one another, I think that’s really important.”

Well, we applaud Arya for opening up to the public. While it's not her responsibility, she's a huge role model for young women and we ADORE her.

As well as her stunning boyfriend, Reuben Selby, even though he said Jon Snow should have killed the Night King. IT WAS ARYA'S DESTINY, OKAY?

Growing up surrounded by camera crews can’t be easy and that's something the Kardashian clan know all too well.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, Kendell Jenner admitted to waking up in the middle of the night from panic attacks following an incident where a man banged on her car window outside her house.

“I wake up in the middle of the night freaking out. Full panic attacks. They wake me up from my sleep, and I need to stand up and I pace and I’m freaking out and crying.”

Kendall was granted a restraining order, but says her anxiety has escalated since sister, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October.

The 21-year-old model has a security guard with her at all times, and while she does feel safer because of that, she admitted that the situation doesn’t feel normal to her.

“I don’t feel normal and I like to feel as normal as I possibly can.”

Kendall told Bazaar that despite her position as one of the most famous models in the world right now, she works hard to maintain her privacy and plans to keep any future romances out of the spotlight.

“I think it’s something sacred. It’s something between two people, and nobody else’s opinion needs to be involved in it.

“People want to start drama. If I had a boyfriend, people are going to say all this stuff that’s probably going to cause us to break up.”

Kendall graces of the cover of Harper’s Bazaar 150th anniversary edition, channelling some old Hollywood glamour.

Panic attacks are alot more common than people like to think. In fact, many of us could have a panic attack without actually knowing what’s really going.

Here are the signs to spot:

Heart palpitations
Heart palpitations are a common symptom of panic attacks. Your heart may increase suddenly and start racing for no reason. Take deep breaths to clam yourself.

Feeling detached
If you are starting to feel like you are becoming a little detached from your surroundings tell someone. This can be feelings of isolation or simply feeling like the world is not real. When you start to feel like this, speak out and tell someone.

Shaking
Shaking is another sign that you are having a panic attack. This can range from feeling slightly dizzy or unsteady  to severe trembling. Grab a seat before you fall down.

Sweating
Suddenly breaking out into a cold sweat is another sign that you are having a panic attack. Sit down, breath and try to relax.
