You are anxious about something 可以用 anxious about 表示因某事担心:

She is anxious about the interview. 她为面试担心。

Dont say 不要说:She is anxious for the interview.

You are anxious for another person (=worried that something bad might have happened to them). 可以用 be anxious for 表示为某人担心:They are anxious for their son.他们为儿子担心。

He was a bit anxious about the safety of the machinery. 他有点担心机器的安全性。

我认为,《朗文当代高级英语辞典》第6版关于 anxious about anxious for 的用法说明是错误的。实际上,表示“为......担心”的意思时,anxious about anxious for 的宾语都可以用表示人或者事物的词语。
