Hollywood star Amber Tamblyn credits acting with bringing her behavioural disorders under control.
The Ring actress admits she was a "completely overly hyperactive child," who suffered from both obsessive compulsive and attention deficit disorders.
She says, "Acting solved my OCD and ADD. I was just crazy.
"I had a pet rat. I would create tiny little plays we would put on in school that would be for our English class.
"I was sort of directionless and wild."
