The ‘To All the Boys I Loved Before’ actress struggled with an eating disorder before and now, she is opening up about it. It’s no secret that many people have body image issues, especially if they are in the spotlight! That is also the case with Lana Condor!
The actress made it on the cover of Elle Canada’s April issue and she looked stunning!
In addition, she also gave an interview to the magazine, getting candid about some delicate issues for the sake of being real and bringing awareness to a serious problem.
‘I look at my friends, and I’m like, ‘You’re f***ing gorgeous.’ But they feel like they are fat and ugly. I do not know how this happened, but women feel like they need to apologize [for their imperfections],’ Lana stated.
As for whether she feels that same way or not, the actress simply replied that she is just a 21 year old girl after all, so ‘it’s hard.’
Fans know that Condor was actually a classically trained ballerina and contemporary dancer prior to her acting debut, which means that she felt the pressure to keep her body in a certain shape and looking a certain way a lot!
She told the Elle interviewer that ‘You’re kind of the first person I have talked to about this, but I know what it is like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia—and also what it is like to be a friend to someone who has it. I think it is time to give people comfort. You need to eat. You have to stop thinking a certain body shape is ideal because it is not.’
The young actress went on to explain that she truly wants to make her relationship with food something special, which is ‘why I literally post about every meal I eat.’
