We do NOT recommend the Michelle Pfeiffer diet and method to keeping trim in your 20s — in fact, we would recommend people COMPLETELY stay away from the two things she claimed to be living on, as they're both not good for you body!
Here's what she said:
'I haven't always been healthy. When I was in my 20s I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. I lived on Marlboro Lights and Coca-Cola.'
Basically, she was looking to starve herself as she watched herself age on the big screen. Then she realized it was unacceptable, started working out like a boss and became a vegan!
'Having to watch yourself age on a giant movie screen is simply not natural. It can wreak havoc on your psyche. Once you get over a certain hump there actually is less pressure. You can begin to look great for your age. You don't have to look young anymore. I've moved over to that other side – I'm 55, which is a little too close to 60, but looking great for my age is okay now.'
Uhh, yeah! We say you're lookin' fab for SURE!!
While we're glad this story had a happy ending, we will never find it NOT disturbing how this industry treats its youth — especially young women. It's devastating for their self-image!
We're SO glad she got past it!
