Zoë Kravitz Opens Up About Past Eating Disorders

April 2, 2015 in Celebrity Quotes by Versus17 Comments »


On her troubles with eating disorders:

“I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18. I started with the eating disorder in high school… Just [a hard time] loving myself. I think it was part of being a woman, and being surrounded by [fame]. I don’t think it was about the fame, but I think it was definitely about being around that world, seeing that world. I felt pressured. My mother’s a beautiful woman, and I think, in some way, I felt intimidated by that sometimes.”

On being 90 pounds 2 years ago:

“My parents got really scared for me to go back down that road. It was f**ked up, man. You could see my rib cage. I was just trying to lose more weight for the film but I couldn’t see- You’re there. Stop. It was scary.”

… says 26 year-old Zoe.

Giuliana Rancic: “I started noticing that I was eating a lot, but not gaining weight at all”

April 2, 2015 in Giuliana Rancic by Versus37 Comments »


All the details from People:

“Some people were saying, ‘The cancer is probably back,’ ” Rancic, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and underwent a double mastectomy that year, tells PEOPLE. “And they were accusing me of every eating disorder. I thought to myself, ‘God, if someone really thought I had an eating disorder, what a horrible way to approach it.’ ”

Thankfully, Rancic, 40, is healthy, though she says the cancer-suppressing medication she has been taking since 2012 has had an effect on her body.

“I started noticing that I was eating a lot, but not gaining weight at all,” Rancic says. “I was concerned.”

Her oncologist, Dr. Dev Paul of Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers in Denver, Colorado, informed her that the drug, which can alter metabolism, could cause weight loss.

“It’s really hurtful,” says Rancic of the attention, adding that she had hoped criticism about her appearance would quiet down on its own. “I’m sorry that some people think I’m disgustingly skinny, as they put it, but there’s nothing I can do. I’m lucky that I even have the type of cancer that reacts to the medicine.”

When it comes to her appetite, “I eat more than any of my friends,” she says. “I eat a very robust, healthy, balanced diet and dessert almost every night. I’m not hiding from anything…

“I look in the mirror and it’s hard for me,” she admits. “I am really thin. I want to look fit and beautiful and sexy, and I can’t.”

“I never want my weight to distract people from what I do,” she says. “But it is becoming a distraction, [whenever] I wear something sleeveless, show my arms, my back.”

In fact, Rancic says a major publication was interested in featuring her but backed out, telling her she was “too skinny.”

“That was really hurtful,” she says. “I thought, ‘Wow, I’m on cancer medication. I’m doing the best that I can.’ ”

Despite the public backlash, that mindset has served Rancic well.

“I refuse to be broken [by what people say],” she says. “I have so many beautiful things in my life.’

Helen Mirren Hates Being Called ‘Sexy’

April 1, 2015 in Helen Mirren by Versus10 Comments »


On the fact that she hates being called ‘sexy':

‘I don’t (like it) because I think it’s totally overused and limiting. It limits human qualities into this very narrow rather mundane and banal little place. Humans beings are so much more complex and interesting and deep than that. I would wish there was a better word than that to express something deeper and richer’.

… says 69 year-old Helen.
