'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.

Lily Collins' 'To The Bone' Trailer Has Started A Big Conversation About Triggers With Eating Disorders

Lily Collins' 'To The Bone' Trailer Has Started A Big Conversation About Triggers With Eating Disorders

Netflix debuted the trailer for To the Bone this week and started a big conversation that we need to have — how the mainstream media portrays mental health and eating disorders.

Lily Collins, who stars in the film, took on the role after overcoming an ED herself.

“I knew that when it came time for this movie to come out, it would be impossible for me to talk about why I wanted to do the movie and why it’s important without expressing my experiences with it,” she told Nylon mag.

To The Bone doesn’t even premiere until July 14th, but the trailer is already giving some triggers.

“Netflix’s ‘to the bone’ is just a massive trigger to anyone with mental health problems or any form of eating disorder, it is not helpful,” one Twitter user wrote about it.

Another was even thinking about the effect it would have on people who are still suffering: “beyond triggered from the trailer for To The Bone, dread to think what effect it’ll have on sufferers who haven’t recovered from their ED.”

13 Reasons Why's Katherine Langford Calls Dylan Minnette The 'Best First On-Screen Partner' Ever

Katherine Langford and Dylan Minnette are back on the 13 Reasons Why set, preparing themselves for a brand new season of the hit Netflix series.

But just before Katherine headed there, she spoke about Dylan and her hopes for season two.

“[He’s] the best first on-screen partner I could ever imagine working with,” Katherine said of Dylan, who plays Clay Jensen. “I also learned a lot from him, which I’m thankful for because he is so great in what he does.”

As for season two, which is set to premiere next year on the streaming service, Katherine is excited for it to play out.

“I think it will give us the opportunity to continue the dialogue on things that are important,” she shared. “It will be a different story, but I think it will carry on the importance of what we did in the first season.”

13 Reasons Why's Justin Prentice Says Most Rapists Don't Know What Consent Is

13 Reasons Why's Justin Prentice Says Most Rapists Don't Know What Consent Is

Justin Prentice is looking ahead to season two of 13 Reasons Why.

The actor plays Bryce, who is possibly the most hated character right now after he raped Hannah in the first season of the Netflix series.

“Like most people, I think it’s very normal when you hear about a case of rape or sexual assault to immediately be angry at the person doing the rape, which of course I still am,” Justin shared with People. “It’s an important thing.”

He adds, “But I think it gave me deeper insight into what’s wrong and why these things are happening — having to force myself to get into the mind of these people and how they’re capable of doing what they do.”

Portraying a rapist on screen is tough, which is why he had a “psychiatrist and a sexual assault expert on speed dial.”

“It’s a lack of education,” he explains about why rapists do what they do. “These people, one, they may have a sense of arrogance in that they can get away with whatever they want to due to the sports or money or power or what have you.”

Justin adds, “But then on top of that, they’re not properly educated on what consent is and what sex should look like and what a healthy relationship should look like.”

13 Reasons Why is streaming on Netflix now.
