We all know what it’s like to feel the pressure to be perfect, but when you’re thrust into the spotlight at a very young age, that pressure can become way too much to handle. Oftentimes, we see celebrities resort to dangerous habits, such as doing drugs, drinking too much or even depriving themselves of the nutrients their bodies need so they can look a certain way.
In the past, several celebrities have opened up about their experiences with such disorders, and although several of these celebrities feel shame while revealing their struggle, they do so in hopes of helping their fans overcome similar issues. Jennette McCurdy, for example, just wrote a piece for HuffPost about her own experience with an eating disorder, which began when she was just 11 years old and spanned for roughly 10 years.
The iCarly actress is just one of several celebs who shared that they did, in fact, battle an eating disorder. Why? Because now that she’s been in recovery for two years, she wants to help those who might be going through the same thing.
