Just like other people, we had no idea that Diane Keaton once had a drawn out battle with bulimia.
A five year battle.
She developed it after being told to lose weight at just 19 years old. She was offered a part on Broadway, but the one condition was that she needed to lose 10 pounds.
'I don't think it was called bulimia then. It was just this trick you could do. It's a horrible problem. Ugly and awful.'
She also says it was psychoanalysis that saved her. Talking it out and discussing it with a professional is what helped her get over the problem.
This happens WAY too often, even today! (especially today!)
We're just glad she's okay and was able to overcome it!
