'To The Bone' Star Alex Sharp Opens Up About The Film's Controversial Subject

Netflix’s To The Bone has been under fire from some critics and viewers over it’s touchy subject of eating disorders since before it even premiered on the streaming service.

Star Lily Collins has spoken out about it before, telling press why she wanted everyone to see the movie, and her co-star, Alex Sharp, is in agreement.

“I think when you start a conversation about something that is under-discussed and you use art to convey it, I think that is incredibly powerful,” he shared in an interview with Broadway World. “But [it's] always going to create waves.”

Alex, who plays Lucas, a person in Ellen’s support group who is also battling an eating disorder.

“All of the reaction is coming off a two-minute and thirty second trailer, so I’m excited for those people who have questions about it to see the full-length movie when it comes out,” he says. “It’s got so many textures and so many layers to it that I think are important to really understand the way that Marti [Noxon] has told the story.”

Alex adds, “I think controversy is an interesting thing in that it usually goes hand in hand with starting conversations that surround taboo or under-discussed topics that need to be discussed and need to be less in the shadows, in my opinion.”

To The Bone is streaming now on Netflix.
