April 2006

Actress Portia de Rossi, 33, admits that she has struggled with eating disorders such as anorexia for as long as she can remember. In the April 2006 issue of Vogue magazine, the slender actress talks openly about days battling anorexia and eating less than 300 calories, binging, and purging.

At one low point, the five-foot-eight beauty found herself at an alarming 82 pounds. Hollywood loves to reward weight loss, but sometimes the stars take it too far. With therapy and emotional support from girlfriend Ellen DeGeneres, Portia is back to her current 125-pound weight and hopes to keep improving.
