26 year-old Girls star Zosia Mamet recently opened up about her eating disorder in a long and personal piece in Glamour Magazine:

“Here’s how I think of my eating disorder: I’m an addict in recovery. We’ve brought other addictions into the light; we’ve talked about them, dissected them, made them acceptable issues to discuss and work out. We need to treat eating disorders just as seriously. (What’s different about eating disorders, of course, is that you can’t just avoid food for the rest of your life. You have to eat to live.) Nobody is addressing the fact that so many women wake up in the morning, look at themselves in the mirror, and, out of habit, attack what they see. Maybe that’s not an all-out disorder, but it’s certainly the seed of one. I read a study once that said that more than a third of casual dieters develop pathological eating habits (and of those, up to 25 percent wind up with an eating disorder). Of course, not all of those people will end up deathly ill, but obsession–and doesn’t every diet require some degree of obsessing?–is a slippery slope. Did you know that only one in 10 people who are suffering gets proper treatment? And that eating disorders have the highest death rate of any mental illness?”

Miranda Kerr recently told us that she only needs 15 minutes every morning to get ready (icluding showering and breakfast) and today, we have another celeb that reveals how much time it takes her to look flawless – Sofia Vergara:

On her 75-minute morning routine:

“An hour and 15 minutes. I take my time—I like showering, scrubbing, bubbling. Everyone is always rushing me! They’ll lie about when an event starts to try to get me there on time. But I always know, so I don’t give a damn. I don’t always curl my hair or wear false lashes, but I do full makeup every day and I always have.”

… says Sofia.

On why she sells magazines:

“I am the target audience. I’m 21 and I love fashion and I feel like a normal girl — at least to a certain extent. I think that people can relate to me. Most of the time the model is retouched and too skinny and other women get depressed by it. But really, that model who is being retouched and is too skinny is depressed as well. Because she doesn’t look like that photo either! It’s not realistic for that model or that woman reading the magazine to think she should look like that. I love my body and I feel very confident with where I am and who I am as a person.”

On whether she always accepted her body:

“No, at first it was terrible! But then I got inspired by other women being inspired by me. Seeing that other women went through that as well made me stronger. I wanted to inspire them by going through it and making it out the other end. Everybody goes through hard times, regardless whether they didn’t get the job that they wanted or if they are being criticized for their body, so I think they can relate to that and people are rooting for me. Me being criticized is more on a global level, but it still hurts just as much for any girl if she’s at school being criticized or at work being criticized.”

… says Kate.
