In an effort to try and undo people’s fascination with thinness — especially Hollywood and the New York fashion industry — Kate Winslet, an actress, recently spoke out about what calls a “disturbing trend:”
Winslet, speaking in Good Housekeeping magazine said: “It seems to me that (Hollywood) is breeding a whole new generation of anorexics. I look at people and I want to say ‘Look, it’s alright you can eat something’.”
Anorexia and other eating disorders have long been a growing societal problem that few people are willing to talk about, much less discuss openly in a magazine. Kudos to Winslet for shedding some more light on this dark condition that affects millions of people.
The UK’s Daily Mail has the scoop.
