Tallulah Willis Strips Down On Camera and Describes Her Eating Disorder
Tallulah Willis is one brave soul. The daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore recently sat down with StyleLikeU as part of the What’s Underneath Project and took off her clothes and described her battle with body dysmorphia at the age of 13.
The starlet explained, “I’m diagnosed with body dysmorphia [because of] reading those stupid f—ing tabloids when I was like 13, feeling like I was just ugly, always,” she explained.
“I believed the strangers more than the people who loved me, because why would the people who love me be honest?”
Willis said that life in the limelight wasn’t easy as a teen and started dressing provocatively to show off her body and take the focus away from her face. She explained that she would often show off her “boobs and butt” to get attention. It wasn’t until one day when she put on a pair of long pants and a button up top that she felt beautiful. She explained, “That was a mindf— for me, the fact that all the attention had to be on my face, and that was so scary for me, because I already wanted to distract people. And by the time I realized that wasn’t who I was anymore, it was like I was trapped in this body and I hated that I was sexy.”
To prove something to everyone who judged her, Willis then went in the opposite direction and dropped down to 95 lbs. “I viewed super-skinny me as smart, intelligent. I was able to have the physical transformation so everyone could see me differently.”
Willis isn’t the only star who has battled some sort of eating disorder. Take a look at other ladies who have battled with this dangerous illness:
