About Stage Fright, Performance Anxiety and Glossophobia

Ever get nervous before a performance? That's normal even for many famous people! There's even terms for it: stage fright, or performance anxiety. It's that feeling of worry or fear you might get when you have to perform in front of people, even if it's just a camera. This can happen when you have to give a speech or presentation; it's just your body's way of getting ready for something important.

Glossophobia is the medical term for the strong and persistent fear of public speaking or performing. It's a common condition that affects many people, causing them to feel nervous or anxious when they have to speak or perform in front of an audience. Many feel ashamed of their fear and scared to be seen. Think of it as stage fright or performance anxiety, but with a fancy medical name! It simply means a strong dislike of speaking or performing in public. Even talking to a small group can be tough if you have glossophobia.

Stage fright, performance anxiety and glossophobia can apply to many situations, here are some examples:

'Many well-known public performers have had stage fright and were able to overcome their problem, including Al Jolson, Brian Wilson, Virginia O'Brien, Michael Gambon, Lorde, Jason Alexander, Mose Allison, Maya Angelou, David Brenner, Peter Coyote, Olympia Dukakis, Richard Lewis, Barbara Streisand, Adele, David Warner, Niall Horan, Frankie Howerd, Mariah Carey and Amanda Seyfried.

In some cases, famous stars have struggled to cope with their anxiety. Hugh Grant said on starring in the movie Music and Lyrics that he "did the whole film full of lorazepam"' (Wikipedia).
