Troian Bellisario may have talked about her eating disorder in the past, but now she is opening up about how her experience was perceived by the people around her. The Pretty Little Liars actress wrote, directed and is starring in her upcoming film Feed, which deals with her real-life experiences surrounding her eating disorder. What makes her experience different is that her eating disorder wasn't about being skinny at all. In fact, it was the concept of control that she was fixated on.
"I found there were so many people who thought that it was about losing weight or being skinny, and I couldn't quite get them to understand that it was about control on a very, very literal level," Troin said in a recent interview.
It is really hard to share a story as serious as this, and we truly respect Troian for opening up about her struggles to help others.
