Jennifer Aniston: I have a ‘real fear’ of going underwater


Jennifer Aniston’s fear of going underwater stems from a childhood trauma.

“I was a kid and I was riding this tricycle around a swimming pool and I drove my tricycle into the swimming pool and I didn’t let go and my brother tried to [help me],” the actress told E! News.

“I basically have a real fear of going underwater,” said Aniston, adding that “no one” believes the phobia is real.

The 45-year-old had to face her fear head-on while filming her new movie “Cake,” in which she plays a woman suffering from chronic pain and an addiction to prescription painkillers who partakes in water therapy.
