Anorexia. Celebs Opinions. Christina Ricci, Katie Lowes, Kate Moss, Courteney Cox…

Anorexia and bulimia are two great problems, especially among teens and young women. Are our aesthetic prototypes provoking eating disorders? Are some professions (actresses, models…) particularly unprotected? Here, some opinions.

Listen to Carre Otis, Caroline Knapp, Christina Ricci, Katie Lowes, Kate Moss, Courteney Cox, Marya Hornbacher, and Celia Imrie.

Anorexia was there for me before I got into modeling, but because of the arena and the demands, the disease really got out of control for me. It’s like being an alcoholic and going and being a bartender. By Carre Otis.

Anorexia is a response to cultural images of the female body – waiflike, angular – that both capitulates to the ideal and also mocks it, strips away all the ancillary signs of sexuality. By Caroline Knapp.

I think my anorexia was to do with being a teenager, not being in films. By Christina Ricci.

In high school, I had a couple girlfriends who had very extreme eating disorders. Anorexia and bulimia. And in college as well. It’s just heartbreaking. As someone going through it, it’s heartbreaking. And as a friend who’s helping a friend going through it, it’s heartbreaking. It’s a real, real disease. By Katie Lowes.

Now I’m being blamed not only for anorexia but for lung cancer. – On being a social smoker. By Kate Moss.

I don’t want to feel I’m responsible for anorexia across the country. By Courteney Cox.

Anorexia and bulimia seem to be getting much more common in boys, men, and women of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds; they are also becoming more common in racial groups previously thought to be impervious to the problem. By Marya Hornbacher.

Anorexia taught me to love life and to realise that starving yourself to death is a bloody waste of time. It’s awful, and it hurts so many people around you. It’s a terribly selfish thing to do. By Celia Imrie.
