Jessica Alba admits to anorexia

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Jessica Alba confessed she suffered from anorexia several years ago during her training for the TV show "Dark Angel."

She said, "When I went from a girl's body to a woman's body with natural fat in places, I freaked out. It makes you feel weird, like you're not ready for that body."

Alba said she started with eating issues when she was only 12 years old. "A lot of girls have eating disorders, and I did too - I got obsessed with it." She said she knew it was time to deal when she got scary skinny and she couldn't stop shivering.

Heh... I was being sarcastic. :)

I remember watching "Honey" (Hey, it was $3 on PPV. Shut up.) and just being appalled by the weird wasp-waisted shape of her body. Thankfully, she looks more normal now.

I think she is one of the most beautiful women on the earth! I know what it's like to go through anorexia and I'm proud of her for standing up and saying, yes I did, but I got/am getting better. It gives anyone who looks up to her, like me, a hope to think, if she can do it; so can I.

like every other living, breathing woman on earth- Jessica's body changes- especially when a girl morphs into a woman and that is normal. As we grow old, changes will occur and as Ive mentioned earlier, that is still normal.
Keeping or maintaining that kind of body for the rest of your life will only make you miserable. MIss Alba has to give up a lot of things to look that good and she knows that.
Personally, id rather look plain looking.

yep, i think most of the "dubbed" hottest women are suffering from eating disorders- maintaining that kind of body is simply not practical. It is only natural that women have fats and that their bodies change as time passes. Trying to control that is merely futile.
Im not saying that its not possible, what im saying is that, it will be at your own expense
