Here’s some news that isn’t really news to anyone: Actors are more screwed up in the head than the rest of us. A recent study found that actors show significantly higher instances of antisocial, narcissistic, histrionic, borderline, schizotypal, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder traits than the rest of us.
That doesn’t necessarily mean actors are dangerous . . . excluding Shia LaBeouf and Lindsay Lohan, of course. In fact, in the right amounts, these traits can actually contribute to an actor’s success.
