Even Hollywood's top actors and actresses have concerns about taking risks on screen.
Emmy award winner Elisabeth Moss is no different. She recently talked to ABC News about her new film, "The Invisible Man," saying she had high hopes for how the movie would turn out.
"I watched an earlier cut of the film in a screening room in New York by myself," Moss said on "Popcorn With Peter Travers." "And it was definitely one of those moments where I was like, 'whew, it worked.' Because when you're making a film like this, you're never quite sure what it's going to turn out to be. It's a crazy story. And you don't know."
Travers said Moss gave a stand-out performance in the movie flick. She plays a woman trying to prove she's being hunted by her ex-husband, who allegedly faked his death.
"We find out she's getting out of an incredibly abusive relationship," Moss said of her character. "Her boyfriend ends up committing suicide. But she continues to believe that she's being terrorized by him. And everyone thinks she's crazy. No one believes her."
Travers said the film takes an interesting look at real life, highlighting how accusations from abused women are sometimes not taken seriously.
"It's two-fold," she said. "It's not only an analogy for gaslighting and for a woman not being believed, but it's also a metaphor for how hard it is to let go of that toxic relationship and the trauma that still exists in a man or woman as they carry that around."
She went on, "We definitely deal with that in a metaphorical way in the movie. I think it's a way of making a film like this, a genre film, really speak to something deeper and be much more interesting."
"The Invisible Man" is in theaters everywhere.
