Ugh, it's absolutely tragic when anyone struggles with body image issues… especially when it happens in the public eye!
In a BRAVE interview with StyleLikeU, Tallulah Willis confesses to battling body dysmorphia, a mental disorder she was diagnosed with at the young age of 13.
For those who don't know, body dysmorphia is when a person believes his or her appearance is worthy of hiding or fixing. Body dysmorphia is considered an illness when the affected person thinks about his or her flaws for at least one hour per day.
Talluah blames her disorder on the tabloids that focused on her personal insecurities.
Bruce and Demi's youngest daughter confesses:
"I started starving myself and losing a bunch of weight and I got down to like 43 kilos. When I lost my curves and when my boobs shrivelled up into nothing and I had no shape. It put me in even more of a cage."
Ugh, we hate to hear how terribly Tallulah struggled!
The ONLY positive thing about this tragic situation is Tallulah's commitment to spreading awareness about the disorder. To promote self-acceptance, Tallulah stripped down to her skivvies to prove just how comfortable she is in her own skin!

We're SO glad Tallulah was able to conquer her inner demons!
