Even beautiful celebrities have problematic body-image issues!
In a recent interview, Christina Ricci discussed how she suffered from anorexia after becoming famous at a very young age, and how she still has body-image issues as an adult.
"For years, I hated myself. I covered the mirrors in my house. I literally couldn't have a mirror in my room. I still can't sit in a restaurant or someplace where I can catch my reflection. I get so paranoid."
Christina said that her nude scene in the movie Black Snake Moan helped her shed some of her self-image issues.
"For that, I needed to lose any self-consciousness because I feel sometimes you can see that in a nude scene."
Everyone has body-image issues to some extent, but it’s important that we not let them control our lives. We’re glad Christina is getting over hers!
