Diane Keaton reveals struggle with bulimia, eating 20,000 calories a day

Diane Keaton is a legend with a long and successful career, and while I think she’s a hot ass mess in a lot of ways, I at least can respect where she’s been and what she’s been through. One of those things is a serious struggle with bulimia when she was in her 20s, wherein she apparently binged and purged on over 20,000 calories per day – a story she’s shared before, but not in such great detail.

From an interview on The Dr. Oz Show (via Radar Online):

“All I did was feed my hunger. I was an addict,” she told Oz.

Oprah’s trusted pal read off a list of foods from then-budding actress’ dangerous daily diet, which included a bucket of chicken, several orders of fries with blue cheese and ketchup, two TV dinners, pounds of candy, a cake and three banana cream pies.

“I was an obese person who had somehow tricked myself and managed to hide it,” the Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty author said. “When you’re living with a lie for four years, it wipes out any growth whatsoever.”

Keaton later recovered with the help of a therapist.

“One day I stopped,” she said. “I never, ever did it again. I just stopped and I don’t even know why.”

Damn, that’s crazy – though unfortunately not all that uncommon for girls, especially ones in Hollywood. Glad to hear she was able to get some help, though I wish some other actresses working these days would do the same…

Diane Keaton Stands Behind Woody Allen


Diane Keaton hasn’t been shy about her love of Woody Allen lately; she accepted an award on his behalf at The Golden Globes with a long speech full of babbling praise. When Allen’s daughter, Dylan Farrow, came out with a detailed open letter stating the sexual abuse he did to her, she named Diane Keaton in the letter, asking “how could you forget me?” Now Diane Keaton has come forward with her thoughts regarding the whole controversy.

The Guardian interviewed Keaton and asked if she had a problem with publicly stating her love for Woody Allen. She replied,

No. No. No. He’s the strongest person I’ve met in my life.

They then asked if she “resented” Dylan Farrow for “dragging” her into it:

No. What are they going to do? Who else are they going to drag in? They have to drag someone in. I don’t resent it, not for a second.

And finally, the reported says, “Dylan Farrow’s accusation is that you publicly defended someone who molested her” to which Keaton responded,

I have nothing to say about that. Except: I believe my friend.

So, there you go. Diane Keaton stands behind Woody Allen. I really wish they had gone deeper into her feelings about this.

Allen has denied all allegations.

What do you guys think?
