In the September issue of Glamour, “Girls” star Zosia Mamet reveals she had and still deals with a serious eating disorder that has affected her whole life.

“I was told I was fat for the first time when I was eight.  I’m not fat; I’m never been fat.  But ever since then, there has been a monster in my brain that tells me I am – that convinces me my clothes don’t fit or that I’ve eating too much.”

The 26-year-old went on to say, “At times it has forced me to starves myself, to run extra miles, to abuse my body.”

It wasn’t until her dad made her get help that she realized her disease was affecting everyone, not just her.

“He came home one night from a party, took me by the shoulders, and said, ‘You’re not allowed to die’.  It was the first time I realized this wasn’t all about me.  I didn’t care if I died, but my family did.  That’s the thing about these kind of disorders: They’re consuming; they make you egocentric; they’re all you can see.”

Even though she has been to treatment, it is still a daily battle for her;

“Today I am at a healthy weight, though I realize that my obsession will always be with me in some way.”

The Hills star Lauren Conrad was and is still known for her fabulous figure and her beautiful looks she showed off dozens of times on Laguna Beach and The Hills. But just because she has money, fame, and an amazing body, does not mean she feels comfortable in her skin. In fact, Ms. Conrad revealed to Glamour Magazine that she has not worn a bikini in two whole years!

Lauren admitted,

“On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified.”

Why you might ask is someone like Lauren Conrad terrified to be seen in a bikini? well the answer to that is pretty simple, for a celebrity living in LA: the paparazzi.

Lauren revealed what exactly made her self-conscious,

“A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.”

And when asked about body image issues in general, Lauren replied,

“I haven’t met a woman without insecurities. You just have to learn to play up the positives.”
