Eddie Murphy’s Daughter Reveals Shocking Trend Among Models
The Atkins Diet, the Zone Diet, the Blueprint Cleanse — these are just some of the countless measures celebrities will take to maintain their impossibly perfect figures.
Sadly, that's nowhere near the craziest thing some beauties in the public eye will do to stay thin.
Model Bria Murphy, daughter of actor Eddie Murphy, revealed on Good Morning America that some models will go as far as eating non-food items to keep their weight down.
"I've heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice… they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton's not doing anything. It's just dissolving. And it makes you think you're full, but you're not," she said.
According to Us Weekly, Bria, who's the spokesperson for Dark and Lovely hair products, says disordered eating is an unsurprising byproduct of the industry, thanks to the crushing demands placed on models.
"Lots of girls get addicted to drugs and anorexia, it's — there's a whole list of things, because it's a lot of pressure to be perfect," she said.
"It's your job to go into a room...and some people will just say no without an explanation, and some will be like, 'Oh, your nose is too big. Your butt's too big. Oh, your legs are flabby.' Like, they'll just go on you, 'Oh, you need to tighten that up.'"
