The Paper Towns star’s mother Pandora has suffered from a heroin addiction in the past and the 22-year-old actress is reportedly terrified that her mother will find herself in a “spiral of misfortune”

A source told HollywoodLife.com: “Every day is a struggle for Cara’s mom, Pandora, with regard to her heroin addiction. She’s clean at the moment and has had her good days and bad days, but as anyone with addiction problems will tell you, you have to take it one day at a time.

“You can never cure yourself of addiction, only control it. That’s why Cara fears she’s struggling because you don’t know what the next day could bring. One event could change everything and lead to a spiral of misfortune.”

Cara previously opened up about her mother’s drug addiction and how it had affected her childhood

She said previously: “I grew up in the upper class, for sure. My family was kind of about that whole parties-and-horse racing thing. I can understand it’s fun for some. I never enjoyed it.

“It shapes the childhood of every kid whose parent has an addiction.You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents. My mother’s an amazingly strong person with a huge heart, and I adore her.
