When some people get nervous, they bit their nails. Some others, like Olivia Munn, rip out their eyelashes!

OK! NEWS: OLIIVA MUNN FLAUNTS HER BIKINI BOD ON SET OF MAGIC MIKE

Wait, what?  Actually, for Olivia it's not a matter of being nervous but rather suffering from an anxiety disorder.

The Magic Mike star told the New York Daily News, "I don't bite my nails, but I rip out my eyelashes."

She added, "It doesn’t hurt, but it’s really annoying. Every time I run out of the house, I have to stop and pick up a whole set of fake eyelashes.”

The impulse-control disorder has a serious name, trichoillomania, and people afflicted by it can pull out hair from their body. Apparently eyebrows and eyelashes are the most common.

The Newsroom actress pointed out the disorder impacts her social interactions. "I don’t want people to be mean to me. As an Air Force kid, I moved around a lot when I was younger and no one was nice to the new kid. So there is always this feeling that someone will make fun of me.”
