I don't understand anorexia; I'm too greedy to ever not eat... I just can't do it.
I was anorexic in the '60s and '70s, although it wasn't called anorexia then. I thought people would be nicer to me if I looked very small and delicate, so food wasn't high on my agenda. But it is now.
I've experienced the tabloids when I had anorexia.
I unwittingly became sort of this anorexia spokeswoman.
I had a very public battle with anorexia.
When I was 19 years old, I came down with anorexia. I had it for about a year before it became public. And it had a lot to do with my self-esteem.
I used to refer to myself as a 'theoretical anorexic,' just as crazy when it came to body image, but saved by a lack of self-discipline. My daughters do everything better than I do - they're smarter, more beautiful, happier. What if they end up better at anorexia, too?
Where do you go to get anorexia?
I think my anorexia was to do with being a teenager, not being in films.
I always felt that anorexia was the form of breakdown most readily available to adolescent girls.
For the longest time, Indian women have been okay with being curvy. But I think the modern Indian woman needs to get toned. I don't endorse being thin. Anorexia and bulimia are a reality in India because everybody wants to be thin.
It not unusual for women with anorexia to suffer heart attacks.
Many women who have anorexia put their hearts in a compromised situation.
I don't want to feel I'm responsible for anorexia across the country.
A lot of the girls were awful, very catty. It was a competitive environment that I didn't like. You have no idea of the anorexia I saw around me.
Anorexia is an awful thing, but you get yourself into it, and only you can get yourself out of it.
Anorexia is pernicious and not something which goes away overnight.
A misperception about anorexia is that you don't eat. Not true. Maybe you eat just 500 calories a day. It would be easy for me to say, 'Why didn't my parents notice?' But I didn't want them to. I made sure to eat half a sandwich around my parents.
Anorexia is a real disease. The choice you do have is asking for help.
I didn't choose to get anorexia. I may have made some childhood-like choices to try to control something. 'I know what I'll do: I'll just not eat.' That was the initial point, but then it spiraled and became a disease - not a choice by any means.
