Camila Mendes Reminds Fans That No One is Perfect in Inspiring New Instagram

Late last year, Camila Mendes opened up about her struggles with an eating disorder, and just lately, she’s revisiting it with a powerful quote about loving your body from Marya Hornbacher

In the post, the Riverdale star opened up about her friendship with fellow eating disorder survivor, and editor, Christina Grasso, who went on to found The Chain, a not-for-profit peer support and mentorship program for women in the fashion and entertainment industries who are struggling with, or recovering from, an eating disorder.

“Even though I’ve been crazy busy and on the other side of the continent, and even though I’m quite possibly the worst texter I know, Christina frequently checks in to see how I’ve been doing, and through that alone I’ve learned to appreciate the value of peer support when recovering from an eating disorder,” Camila writes of her friend on Instagram.

She added, reminding fans that you need to take care of yourself in all ways and forms.

“Having that constant reminder to love my body (especially on instagram where my feed is full of perfect pictures and ‘perfect bodies,’ and especially being in front of a camera every day playing Veronica, who adores her tight mini skirts) is just enough to clear my head of all the negative voices that creep in every once in a while,” Camila says.

“Our minds can get so contaminated with endless images of perfection, and even if you don’t suffer from an eating disorder, it can’t hurt to incorporate a little body positivity into your routine. Take care of yourself in every way that you can.”
