Mayim Bialik’s Insecurity
Mayim Bialik has her website, Groknation.com, where she and others write about politics, family, and everything in between. In an interesting video segment entitled “5 Things You’d Be Surprised To Know About Me,” Mayim admitted to extreme insecurity in all aspects of life.
Insecure About Many Things
Mayim admitted immediately by saying, “I am very insecure…and I don’t just say that so that people will say, ‘Oh you shouldn’t be insecure, you’re awesome!’ I say it because I’m really insecure.” She then went on to admit that she worries about her physical appearance, her accent, her posture, and many other things.
Comparison is the thief of joy, but it makes sense that Mayim would experience insecurity. She was pushed into Hollywood at a young age, on the hit show Blossom, and grew up in the spotlight.
Mayim says that she has gotten used to her insecurity, and has learned to deal with it. Accepting that there is not much you can do is half the battle.
More Shocking Facts
Although Mayim found fame early, her childhood was not glamorous. She lived in a family with only one bathroom and had to share with an older brother and two elderly parents.
As a result, the star admits she is quick in the bathroom. “I’m very efficient in the bathroom, I don’t spend a lot of time in there. And, I often do a lot of my grooming and “getting pretty” outside of the bathroom.” We think Sheldon would definitely love that.
She Drives Stick
Mayim loves cars and drives a stick shift. She explains that “[that] is something that people who love cars tend to do.” She said when she was a teenager she wanted a Ford Falcon.
She also loves factories. She seeks out factory tours whenever traveling. It’s an odd hobby but matches Mayim’s quirky self. Her favorite factory tour is at the Louisville Museum of Baseballs. There you can see how bats are made.
There’s one more crazy thing Mayim admitted about herself…
Fear Of Spiders
Despite the fact that Mayim is a scientist both on screen and in real life, she is terrified of spiders. She’s also scared of lizards, snakes, cockroaches, and anything “creepy-crawly.”
Although TBBT star has dissected a human brain, she still finds spiders to be way grosser. Mayim relies on others to take care of bugs around her home.
It’s interesting to hear fun facts we may not have expected. She certainly has a lot to draw upon when acting as Amy.
