Actors Who Went To Therapy Over Their Movies



Actors Who Went To Therapy Over Their Movies 2

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is an immensely popular franchise, but that doesn’t mean every movie is a winner. When «Eternals» came out, it was met with poor reviews from critics, leaving the film with a 47% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Kumail Nanjiani, who portrayed the Eternal known as Kingo, revealed in an interview with the podcast «Inside of You» that the reviews led him to start therapy.

While the actor thought the movie could open up a lot of doors for him because of the director and actors attached, the less than stellar reviews were «very. very tough» on him. «The reviews were bad, and I was too aware of it,» Nanjiani shared. «I was reading every review and checking too much.» Nanjiani started to go to therapy as a result, because he felt that it was taking a toll on both him and his wife to be so wrapped up in his work that way.

Nanjiani was incredibly excited to do the movie and for everyone to see it, but let himself get tied up with what everyone was saying about it. «I go [to therapy] basically every week,» the actor added, admitting that he still discusses how «Eternals» impacted him with his therapist, but has since figured out that he had to stop worrying about the public or critical response. Going to therapy helped him remember that he «can’t control what people are gonna think of it.»
