The beautiful Thandie Newton, admitted struggling with an eating disorder that started at the age of 14. In the Spetember issue of Easy Living, Thandie Newton reveals, “I had terrible bulimia for about a year, I’ve still got the scars on my knuckles from where I put my fingers down my throat.”
Newton says her obsession started as early as 14, training for her ballet exams and eating “nothing but cottage cheese.” A series of abusive relationships followed – as did the eating disorder once she reached her early 20s.
“I’d been involved with this guy for a long time, he was much older than me and I felt a lot of shame about my sexual relationship with him,” she tells the magazine. “I would have these dinners with him and then go back to the flat and I’d throw up. Then I went out with someone who was emotionally abusive, criticizing me the whole time.” [Source]
