Emma Stone opens up about lifelong struggle with anxiety

Emma Stone discussed her life-long struggle with anxiety by bringing a drawing she made at age 9 while in therapy on Tuesday's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The self-portrait shows Emma standing next to a small green monster underneath the words, "I'm bigger than my anxiety". Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

'I was a very, very, very anxious child and I had a lot of panic attacks, ' Emma (born Emily) continued. But if he and Marilyn are suspicious and/or jealous of each other, they're also bound by their love for Billie Jean, and their desire for her success and happiness.

And she illustrated that fact with an actual illustration from way back then.

The battle of the sexes match came about after Bobby Riggs had challenged Billie Jean King to a best of five set match stating no woman could beat him.

Miz said that he'll still be champion after Sunday, Angle will still be a awful father, and Jordan will still be a bastard. Bayley made her return to Raw this week and got herself into the Raw Women's Championship match this Sunday at No Mercy .

The film also stars Austin Stowell as Billie Jean's husband, Larry King.

King herself agreed, and said, "Larry and I always talked about changing the tennis world, from the sixties".

"We wanted to tell the story of the birth of women's professional tennis". In the film, when King approaches the president of the USLTA, Jack Kramer (Bill Pullman), for a raise in pay for female players, there's a folder of papers on the table. He drew up all the necessary paperwork required for the women to start their own tour ahead of time, so that if King's meeting with Kramer went badly (it did), there would be nothing stopping them from striking out on their own. It was super challenging, but she was so warm and welcoming and open to all of it.

One member of the Original Nine was dealing with racism as well as sexism at the time. That little interaction is at the heart of Battle of the Sexes, which is being promoted as the wild story of an intersex tennis match, but is much more interested in the trickiness of unapologetic public feminism in the 1970s, and the complications of sexual identity.
