Famous star Zoe Kravitz decided to open up about the eating disorder she had to deal with about two years ago. The star made the new revelations during an interview with Complex. During her talk with the magazine, Zoe alleged that she managed to overcome the disorder and she is doing perfectly fine now.
Zoe claimed during her interview that she developed eating disorder when she was only a teen. Back then, she was in high school, but she deal with both anorexia and bulimia. Zoe also claimed that the disease made it very difficult for her to have confidence or like her body. “I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18. I started with the eating disorder in high school… Just [a hard time] loving myself,” Zoe explained.
Moreover, Zoe went on to say that she actually believed that dealing with the disease was part of life as a woman. However, Zoe also went on to add that being surrounded by fame did not help her, as she actually felt much pressure. Zoe Kravitz realized that something was very wrong when her weight dropped to about 90 pounds. The star claimed that back then she actually got the role of an anorexic girl. Her parents were the first to let her know that she had to do something about her body image.
“My parents got really scared for me to go back down that road,” the star confessed. Still, she refused to realize that she was actually living the movie. Zoe claimed that she was even trying to lose more weight for the film. After finishing filming, her health started to decline. The star claimed that her immune system dropped and her thyroid was thrown off. In 2013, the star made the decision to make a change in her eating habits.
Luckily, Zoe Kravitz managed to overcome her issues and she is now doing fine. She claimed that her insecurity led her into developing the eating disorder. Zoe also claimed that the fact that she was always surrounded by beautiful women, including her mom or the models that her dad dated, contributed to the pressure she felt on being beautiful.
