The English Patient star Kristin Scott Thomas found an unlikely saviour in the form of astrology - which she claims helped rid her of her demons.The actress used to have severe emotional problems and suffered from crippling self-esteem - but a trip to an astrologist turned her life around.Scott Thomas paid $268 (£134) for the one-hour session and is convinced it was the best thing she has ever done.She says, "I felt socially inept. I used to be afraid to ring people to ask if they would have lunch with me because I was afraid they'd make up an excuse and I wouldn't be able to handle the rejection."I've had an astrology reading. It was the best thing ever. She made me feel wonderful about myself. You're paying someone to give you complete attention and you come out feeling positive thinking, 'Great! Everything is going to work out and I'll have lots of money. My children are going to be really happy and one of my sons is going to be President.'"
