In the issue, Cole discusses the “horrifying social anxiety” he developed from being “raised in a sound stage,” giving him trouble communicating with his peers sometimes.

“I don’t have to deal with anxiety as much as I used to,” he told the mag. “It’s the scariest thing, but you have to look it right in the eye and understand it’s not going anywhere. Once I found a confidence in myself and how I interacted with the world around me, all of a sudden, people weren’t criticizing me the way they used to when I was consistently thinking about it.”
