Last quote by Lily Collins

For me, I just wanted to feel like I was paying homage to the 16 year old girl that I was, that would've wanted to see this movie, but at the time I was just an actor playing a character. There was never a weight goal, there was never a number. It's something that I decided to do as an actor for a role. You lose weight, you gain weight, you change your hair color. There's so many different things that you can physically change for a character.feedback

And if it was, it really isn't anymore. It crosses all kinds of lines.”.

The first time she was a bit in shock. The second time I looked over at the end and she was sobbing; it really hit her hard. I never wanted her to feel responsible; she's like my best friend. When she saw the movie, I think she recognized so much of me in Ellen.feedback

Of course, if I'm traveling or tired I give my body a rest. I used to feel guilty if I skipped a workout in the past, but now it just means life is offering up things that I want to do instead. Those ellipticals will always be there but experiences won't.feedback

I try to be active in some way everyday: It's my time to disappear and be in my own world. I can also push myself past what I thought I was capable of.feedback

When I splurge, it's usually on things I've baked, because it's satisfying physically and emotionally. I'm not gluten-free or vegan, but I love baking things because of the sense of accomplishment I get from creating something that's yummy and healthy.feedback

I've always strived to start conversations about taboo subjects with young women … having suffered from an eating disorder does not define me, I'm not ashamed of my past.feedback

I used to see healthy as this image of what I thought perfect looked like – the perfect muscle definition, etc. But healthy now is how strong I feel. It's a beautiful change, because if you're strong and confident, it doesn't matter what muscles are showing. Today I love my shape. My body is the shape it is because it holds my heart.feedback

I always assumed the second that I admitted these things, people would judge me more. In fact, it was just a freeing experience of letting go, and then not having these restrictions and feeling like I was in a box in my own head. I was also shedding myself of the title, girl with a disorder. I was able to get rid of that and work through it as the character and also as myself. We really ate clean: no sauces, oils. It was just very clean eating but in no way crash dieting. That would not have done good for my body, and I wanted to treat this as specifically and as healthily as possible.feedback

Best way to start off my week! I can't believe this letter I received from someone I deeply respect and admire. It's absolutely epic. I'm in complete shock but just had to share!feedback

Because my dad was often gone, I never wanted to do anything that would make him stay away even longer. I became extra careful about what I said and how I said it, afraid he'd think I was angry or didn't love him. And the truth is, I was angry. I missed him and wanted him there.feedback

When he drank to excess, he worried about everything. He doubted things I'd say and became incredibly insecure. I found myself constantly reassuring him of my affections, and there came a point when nothing I said could make him feel better.feedback

At the end of the day, the more they refused to admit their problem, the more I was the one who suffered. I felt dumb and disrespected. I felt foolish. Eating was no longer a fun social event, but instead a chore and a punishment, I was exhausted and antsy and bitchy all the time. I sure as hell wasn't much fun. But my plan was working! I was in control! I was skinny!feedback

The hardest of these relationships was with an ex-boyfriend who used substances as a way to self-medicate, alternating between drugs and alcohol.feedback

We all make choices and, although I don't excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can't rewrite the past. I'm learning how to accept your actions and vocalize how they made me feel… I now understand that my frustrations surrounding our communication are not about changing you, but accepting you as you are.feedback

We all make choices and, although I don't excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can't rewrite the past. I'm learning how to accept your actions and vocalise how they made me feel. I accept and honour the sadness and anger I felt toward the things you did or didn't do, did or didn't give me. Many of my deepest insecurities stem from these issues with my dad.feedback

It's impossible to compare something to what was known as the first franchise to really hit big. And that's 'Twilight.' It was its own entity to itself. It's OK to hope to have a fan base like that. But I think when it comes to comparing and contrasting, it's so different. I mean, this is a world where there's angels and demons. It's a totally different alternate universe.feedback
