Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow fears she will end up in a "mental asylum".

The Shakespeare in Love star said she is a "perfectionist", and she's scared her attention to detail will eventually lead to a meltdown.

"Sometimes I think I'm going to have to check myself into a mental asylum, it gets so bad. It's my worst quality and I hate myself for it. It's like, what's wrong with you? Relax!"

"Sometimes I feel like the psycho in Sleeping with the Enemy. Remember that film, when she's got to line up all the apricot chutneys just so? I think I'm scared of something, like there's something I need to figure out," she said.

"I think I need to... go back to the shrink and figure out what's going on with that. I had a great therapist in New York whom I still talk to," she added.

The actor filed for divorce from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin earlier this week. The A-list couple announced their "conscious uncoupling" one year ago.

The 42-year-old Oscar-winning actor filed her petition to end their 11-year marriage citing irreconcilable differences for the split from Martin, 38.
