It takes a brave lady to admit she's had a struggle in the past, and Zoe Kravitz has openly faced her fears and revealed that she's recently battled anorexia. Zoe, who was under pressure to lose a lot of weight for her role as anorexic Marie in comedy flick, The Road Within, tried all sorts of weight-loss methods including drinking clay which is said to cleanse your body and fill you up. We'd rather have a non-cleansing Starbucks, thanks. Zoe seems to agree with us, describing the whole process as "awful" and saying she would never encourage anyone to try it.

Zoe confessed all about her struggle in the latest issue of Complex magazine: "It was f***ed up, man. You could see my ribcage. I was just trying to lose more weight for the film but I couldn't see 'you're there - stop'. It was scary. Now I feel like something has left my body, like some part of me is gone now, something that was making me so insecure. And it feels amazing." Zoe also talks of how she first battled an eating disorder at high school at the age of 16 and had a hard time "loving myself."

Well we love you Zoe, we think you look amazing, and we're glad you're on the mend.
