Lana Condor Opened Up About Dealing With An Eating Disorder And Deciding To Celebrate Her Relationship With Food
"I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia — and also what it’s like to be a friend to someone who has that."
Yesterday, ELLE Canada unveiled their latest cover featuring none other than Lana Condor, star of To All The Boys I've Loved Before and Deadly Class.
In the accompanying interview, Lana spoke about everything from the importance of representation to her passionate endorsement of the fight against climate change.
But she also criticised the world's unfair treatment of women, and specifically the fact that women "feel like they need to apologise" for our physical appearances.
Lana went on to say that, as a classically trained dancer, she has firsthand experience of the expectations placed on young girls to look a certain way.
"I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia — and also what it’s like to be a friend to someone who has that," she told ELLE. "I think it’s time to give people comfort."
