“One of the reasons I became so outspoken when I decided to come out of treatment and talk about my issues was because when I grew up and I was dealing with the pressures to be thin - it was that time in the tabloids when very very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine and that’s what I was looking up to, so that’s what I had to idolize. I don’t want that for young girls to idolize, it’s very unhealthy — and there was nobody out there for me to look at and say ‘you know what maybe this is unhealthy, maybe starving myself isn’t the answer’ so I want to be that for a 13 year old girl at home deciding whether or not to eat dinner or an 18 year old girl deciding whether or not to keep her breakfast down, y’know there needs to be a role model out there and for the first time in my life I actually feel like one…”
