Actress Christina Ricci admits to suffering from anorexia, depression and self-mutilation as a teen. As the Addams Family star told the press in 2007: “I was a teenager going through adolescence and at one point I had a little anorexia phase and then I kind of ballooned. I feel my body now is the adult Christina and it’s what I should have come to a long time ago if I hadn’t been screwing around with my body so much.”

Ultimately, Christina decided that this obsession with her appearance was talking too much of a toll on her life. “I was too busy thinking about my skin or my weight or the clothes I was wearing instead of just enjoying it and saying, ‘I can’t believe I get to be here. This is awesome and I’m going to experience it.’ “
