After the sheep you've counted have gone to bed without you, you might wonder whether fame and fortune could buy you better sleep. Many celebrities have had no such luck: celebs deal with sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, insomnia, and sleepwalking, too.
One doctor attributed celebs' sleep problems to high-stress lifestyles. "There is very good evidence that daytime stress can impair the quality of sleep at night," notes sleep expert David Schulman, MD, MPH, director of the Emory Sleep Laboratory in Atlanta. "Insomnia is [probably] the disorder that stressors are most associated with," he notes.
Jennifer Aniston: Sleepwalking
"Friends" co-star and film actress Jennifer Aniston is rumored to have repeated incidents of sleepwalking, technically known as somnambulism or "nighttime wandering." About one in three adults has at least one episode of nighttime wandering during a lifetime, a Neurology study found. People who are frequent night wanderers (at least twice a month) also often have related health conditions, such as sleep apnea, depression, or alcohol abuse. Sleepwalking can also be a side effect of certain medications, including sleeping pills.
