See? The Freshman 15 can happen to anyone - even celebrities!
Natalie Portman recently revealed that she struggled with her weight, as well as some depression, during her first year at Harvard University!
"I gained my freshman 15 or 20 and had super-depressed moments. That Cambridge winter is tough. It was important to know how to go through that and how to get myself out of it. You start learning how to ask your friends or professionals for help, or go to mentors."
So very true!
College is such a crazy time of transition for most students, so it's important that she spoke out on her experience, and went about dealing with it in the correct fashion!
There are a lot of resources at your disposal when you're away at school! We're glad that she took advantage of them and stuck it out!
