NEW YORK - A new documentary about anxiety argues that everyone to some extent suffers from stress, nerves and social fear. And, to make their point, the filmmakers have enlisted as Exhibit A the most decorated Olympian in history.

Michael Phelps appears in Angst to share his story of being bullied and depressed, leading to severe anxiety. The swimmer, winner of 28 Olympic medals, would often look in the mirror and not like what he saw.

"Once I opened up about that and things that I had kept inside of me for so many years, I then found that life was a lot easier. I got to the point where I understood that it's OK to not be OK," he says in the film.
