Lily Collins' Wanting A Family One Day Helped Her Overcome Her Eating Disorder

Lily Collins has been very open about her struggles with her eating disorder.

Not only did the actress star in Netflix’s To The Bone, where she put herself in a vulnerable situation of relapsing, she also wrote about her struggle with the disease in her book, “Unfiltered”.

Speaking with US Weekly, Lily opened up about the moment when she finally realized it was time to get help.

“Everyone has a different form of recovery. I never had an ‘aha’ moment,” Lily shares. “My reason to finally start talking about it was the moment I realized I wanted a family.”

“I wanted kids. I didn’t want this to be something I bring into that.”

Furthermore, Lily also dished about why she was telling her story, and how it could start conversations amongst her fans — something she’s hoping does.

“Within this business, people do interviews where they talk about never exercising and eating whatever they want. That paints an image,” she says.

“If you’re at an impressionable age, you’re going to actually believe that…that really drove me me to want to write my story and hopefully alleviate some of the misconceptions out there,” Lily adds. “This is an important conversation to have. It’s not a small topic.”

To The Bone is streaming on Netflix now.
