“I was leaving my apartment one day and someone I’ve known for a long time, my mom’s age, said to me, ‘Oh, wow, look at you!’, I tried to explain [I had lost weight for a role] and she goes, ‘No! I want to know what you’re doing, you look great!’ I got into the car with my mom and said, “That is why the problem exists.” Lily about her “To The Bone” Role.
before ya’ll jump on To The Bone (2017) for romanticizing eating disorders in the same way 13rw romanticizes suicide, keep in mind that the film is written and directed by Marti Noxon who based the film on her own personal struggles with eating disorders and stars lily collins who has also been very public about her battles with eating disorders. also the cast (including Keanu Reeves) have been raising awareness about eating disorders since early 2016 (when they began filming). of course you should steer clear of any potentially triggering content if you have an ed, I just wanted to point out that To The Bone has not been composed in the same circumstance as 13rw
