Rumours go flying around about this actress or that having an eating disorder pretty much every day – and unfortunately a lot of them are true. However, one actress who swears gossip about her relationship with food is untrue is Kate Hudson, who says she has never and will never suffer from an eating disorder of any kind.
From Red magazine:
She once sued a publication for saying she was dangerously thin.
‘That I had an eating disorder,’ she corrects me, ‘and, if there is one thing I will never have, it is an eating disorder. I won’t have girls – even if it is just one or two who care – thinking that. Because it’s a serious sickness, not something to plaster on the cover of a magazine. And I am the opposite.’
The irony is that she was also attacked for putting on a lot of weight when pregnant with Ryder. ‘Right! And I want to be giving girls the message that, sometimes you do gain 70 pounds having a baby, and you can lose it if you want. The whole point is I want girls to love themselves. I want them to feel good about who they are.’
Well… good for you? It’s a sad state of affairs when we’re applauding women for NOT having eating disorders, to be honest. THAT should be the norm, not starving yourself or throwing up everything you eat. Either way, I hope she is healthy and happy with the way she looks – I think she’s lovely (albeit slightly annoying)!
