On the things that trigger her eating disorder:

When I was in a relationship with Wilmer I went three years without purging and when we broke up that’s one of the first things I did. What started the relapse was missing Wilmer. And when I feel lonely my heart feels hungry and I end up binging.

On food being her biggest daily struggle:

The less I have to think about food, the easier it is to go about having a normal life and I don’t want to let anybody down so when I do have moments when I slip up, I feel very ashamed. Food is still the biggest challenge in my life and it controls — I don’t want to give it the power to say it controls my every thought, but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about.

On being a good role model:

So, for me, it’s like kind of admitting that I’m not … Obviously I’m not perfect, but admitting that on camera. I want to be the best role model that I can be for my fans, so by admitting that I’m not perfect, it’s kind of weird for me.

… says Demi, as she shared her recovery image on Instagram.

Jennifer Lawrence: “I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks”

Jennifer-Lawrence-2017-Venice-Film-Festival-Pictures - Jennifer Lawrence: "I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks"

The full story from People:

“When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks,” she said, revealing another actress before her had already been fired for not losing the weight fast enough. But it did not end there, she said.

“During this time a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates,” she added. “After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet.”

Lawrence said she tried to stand up for herself and told another producer she thought the weight loss demands were not appropriate.

“He said he didn’t know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was ‘perfectly f~~~able.’” The actress said she felt “trapped” by the experience. “I let myself be treated a certain way because I felt I had to for my career,” she shared. “I’m still learning that I don’t have to smile when a man makes me uncomfortable,” she added. “Every human being should have the power to be treated with respect because they’re human.”
