Portia de Rossi Writes a Memoir About Her ED Past  | celebrity quotes beauty body image

37 year-old Portia De Rossi (now Portia Lee James DeGeneres) is planning to launch a memoir called Unbearable Lightness this November – the actress opens up about her troubled past and life-long battle with anorexia and bulimia. Entertainment Weekly has the details:

Unbearable Lightness, de Rossi’s memoir of a lifetime of starving and bingeing and purging (as well as part of a lifetime hiding her sexuality), is at times so wrenching that it’s difficult to imagine how the author, now 37, has kept her misery hidden for so long. ”Since I was a twelve-year-old girl taking pictures in my front yard to submit to modeling agencies, I’d never known a day when my weight wasn’t the determining factor for my self-esteem,” she writes with weary honesty. At her most perilously anorexic, the publicly glamorous TV star weighed 82 pounds. Ten months later, in the depths of bulimic bingeing, she had doubled in size. As an autobiographer she reports this with a vivid eye for detail, particularly about foods devoured, foods refused, and the ways a woman can hide her self-destruction, particularly when posing under the searchlights of fame.

The blunt, pity-free matter-of-factness with which de Rossi shares secrets and lies about her eating disorders and her sexuality makes this forthright confessional story at once shocking and instructional, especially for younger women who may be secretly suffering on their own.

Anne Hathaway Does Vogue and Brings the Quote of the Day | celebrity quotes anne hathaway

Anne Hathaway is Vogue’s covergirl this month and she wows us with her big smile and elegance. Here’s a little quote from Anne:

On aging in Hollywood: “I’m entering a new phase of my career where the stories are becoming a lot more specific about where the character is in her life,” Hathaway says. “People don’t always want to tell stories about women in their 30s and 40s and 50s. Obviously, some of those ages are pretty far off for me, but I know it’s coming. What I’ve observed and what I’ve imagined-and definitely what I’m hoping-happens as you get older is that there’s a mellowing, an acceptance that comes with time,” she says. “I guess that I’ll find out.”

… says Anne in Vogue.

Julianne Moore’s Spread and Thoughts in Allure Magazine

Julianne Moores Spread and Thoughts in Allure Magazine | celebrity quotes

49 year-old actress Julianne Moore is featured in Allure Magazine, where she rocks leotards and minidresses (and is unnecessarily potoshopped), while talking about why plastic surgery looks ‘off’, having pale skin and freckles and getting older.

On having to stay out of the sun: “I have what I call ‘my outfit’, I wear a long-sleeved rash guard and a pair of board shorts. It’s not so sexy, but I keep myself covered. My husband hates it. But if you ever see me at a water park, that’s what I’ll be wearing.”

On getting older: “I’m always shocked by people who talk about not being middle-aged, I’m like, ‘How old do you think you’re going to live? Let’s double your age and see where you get.’ People are always like, ‘Thirty-five is not middle-aged.’ I’m like, ‘Double it.’”

On finding herself modeling at age 50: “I like to call myself the hundred-year-old model.”

On plastic surgery:
“I hate to condemn people for doing it, but I don’t believe it makes people look better. I think it just makes them look like they had something done to their face, and I don’t think we instinctively find that appealing. We think we do, but then when you look at somebody who’s had their face altered in some way, it just looks weird. We recognize emotionally that that’s not what we look like, that there’s something off. You don’t want to take away what makes a face look human.”

On dyeing her famous ginger hair: She does admit to touching up her signature red hair with a vegetable-based rinse every four weeks, if only because her gray streak has taken on an unusual hue. “Redheads don’t go gray – they go sort of peach, unfortunately,” she explains. “You don’t turn that nice silvery color.”

On her freckles: Seeing herself on billboards and magazine covers is still a surprise to Moore, not just because of her age, but because she grew up being teased about her unusual looks. A children’s book, Freckleface Strawberry (Bloomsbury USA), that she wrote based on that experience was recently turned into a musical. “I don’t love my freckles-I’d really rather not have them, but there’s nothing I can do about them,” says the actress, “I think we learn as adults that there are other things that are more important.”

A while ago, we heard ‘a girl who eats’ Lea Michele say that she loves her ‘Jewish nose’ – take a look at the highly commented post HERE! Lea continues to talk about her nose in this month’s GQ magazine:

“I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn’t get one. And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, ‘Barbra Streisand didn’t get a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And I didn’t. F- those people. That’s why I’m proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, ‘You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.’”
