5 Celebrities Who Say They Were Too Thin in the Past

These 5 celebrities have all acknowledged that they lost too much weight in the past. For some, it signaled a rough patch in their lives such as a divorce, while others became a little too worried about what others would think of them if they weren’t thin enough. They may all be healthy weights now, but they have said that they were definitely less healthy in the past, while some say they had bad eating habits which lead to their thin look.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria says that after her divorce, she was too thin even though everyone thought she looked great: “I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked. It was probably the most unhealthy place I’ve ever been. So it was funny what people would see as ‘healthy’. In my worst time, people were saying I’ve never looked better. But now I have a great diet and exercise routine. I like weight training and abs. I hate the elliptical. I despise cardio. I just can’t do it. So I try to do my cardio within the workout.”

Portia de Rossi

Portia de Rossi says as a young girl, she began dieting, and was too thin for much of her young life: “I don’t know if I did it (diet) for long enough to be actually called an anorexic but I definitely dieted to the point where I didn’t look good any more. All my life, I figured that, if I was going to work and look good, I had to starve myself. I’d been dieting since I was 11, when I started modelling. My mother kind of took it upon herself to make me eat steamed vegetables and salad all the time because she thought that, as a model, that was what I should eat. I grew up wanting to eat McDonald’s and trying desperately not to.”

Nicole Richie

Back when she was too thin, Nicole candidly said that she knew she was underweight and was seeking help for the problem: “I know I’m too thin right now, so I wouldn’t want any young girl looking at me and saying, ‘That’s what I want to look like. I started seeing a nutritionist and a doctor… I do recognise that I have a problem, and I want to be responsible and fix it, and I’m on that path right now.”

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan says there was a time when she wasn’t looking after herself properly, which lead to her becoming too skinny: “I was going through a rough time and I probably wasn’t taking care of myself – I wasn’t. I want to encourage young girls to not get to that point. Now they’re going to say I am overweight, which is ridiculous. I don’t know what to say to that … you grow up and you mature.”

Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff admits that she felt pressure to look thin, and wasn’t eating properly in order to lose weight and fit in: “I definitely felt the pressure to lose weight.  I wasn’t starving myself, but I wasn’t eating a balanced diet, and I did get too thin.”
