Lily Allen Opens Up About Miscarriage And Eating Disorder

Posted by Katie F. on March 8th, 2011

Lily Allen is featured in a British documentary focusing on her life from March to October 2010. In it, the singer opens up about some hard times she has faced. She suffered a miscarriage in October 2010, six months into her pregnancy with fiancé Sam Cooper. This came after her first miscarriage in 2008 with musician Ed Simons.  She revealed how hard it was for her.

“It was a really long battle. I think that kind of thing changes a person.”

She also admitted to battling an eating disorder and how unhappy she was during the time period.

“But, I tell you what, a lot of people came up to me telling me how great I looked and I’d be on the cover of every magazine… But I wasn’t happy, I really wasn’t… I would love to be the skinniest minniest person in the world but I can’t do that without being unhappy– I like food.”

She’s now comfortable with her body and recognizes how important it is to focus more on taking care of herself.

“I do Pilates three times a week. I am still body conscious, but I’m not so concerned with it; I don’t care as much.”
