Ashlee Simpson reveals previous eating disorder problem
UPI News Service, 12/07/2005
Singer Ashlee Simpson reveals in Cosmopolitan magazine she spent six months of "not eating too much at all" until her family intervened.
"When I went to ballet school, I was around a lot of girls with eating disorders, and I actually had a minor one myself," Simpson tells the Dec. 13 issue of the women's magazine. "It was about six months of not eating too much at all. I was 11 and 5 feet 2 and about 70 pounds.
"My parents stepped in and made me eat," she says. "That really helped a lot."
Simpson says she learned a lesson from the experience and has learned to love her body, "Entertainment Tonight" reported Wednesday.
"I think I have good curves, and they're womanly," she says. "I hate it when girls lose their curves.
"I think it's sexy not to be a bone and it's sad when people get too weight-conscious and don't look in the mirror and see themselves as being as beautiful as they are."
