In recent years, Candace Cameron Bure and Hallmark have become synonymous with one another. The actress has become Hallmark Channel royalty, even ushering in other stars to the network in the process. Cameron Bure has been at the top of the heap for years, filming numerous projects a year, but this success also comes with an incredible amount of pressure. And the actress recently opened up about getting sick to her stomach, as a result of the pressure, while filming a recent Christmas movie

It may be hard to believe that even Candace Cameron Bure, the undisputed queen of Hallmark movies can feel so much pressure after so much success. But pressure is a serious thing that can affect anyone. Cameron Bure recently spoke with The Call to Mastery with Jordan Raynor podcast about how her faith has influenced her career, and the conversation soon turned to the pressure she felt while filming If I Only Had Christmas. The actress admitted:

I worry all the time about my movies. I actually got sick to my stomach on this last Christmas movie that aired in November because I've created an anxiety for myself because my movies have been the top-performing movie seven years in a row, and you know, one day you're going to slide off that pedestal. It’s inevitable. It has to happen.

After talking about her anxiety while filming, Candace Cameron Bure admitted that the pressure has grown over the years, due to her rising star at Hallmark. However, the actress seems to have found a way to calm her nerves:

And so, every year, it kind of makes me sicker and sicker every time I have a movie to come out because I'm like, 'Is this going to be the year? Is this it?' And I had to have a come to Jesus moment with myself in 2020 because I thought, 'Why are you doing this?' Meaning, why are you making the movies?’ I had to bring it back to my why, my why that I set 12 years ago, coming back to the industry. ‘Why do you make the movies, Candace?’ I make them because I love acting. I make them because of the connections I make… I had to remind myself of my why and then let it go and just say, 'You know what, it doesn't matter what those ratings are.'

While starring in Hallmark movies may seem easy to some, Candace Cameron Bure’s admission reveals how anxiety and pressure to perform can affect a person mentally and physically on any production. Thankfully, the actress has now been able to focus on her true purpose and love for acting.

Keeping her faith while navigating Hollywood has helped (and in some cases, hurt) Candace Cameron Bure’s decades-long career. But overall, Cameron Bure has been able to keep her head on straight all while becoming Hallmark’s reigning queen.
