The January 22 edition of In Touch Weekly has a cover story about the growing shrinking-ness of actresses Keira Knightley, Mary Kate Olsen, and Jessica Alba. Inside the magazine, you see pictures of Keira and Jessica in bikinis, and Mary Kate dressed in black leggings and a baggy sweater. All of these girls just do not look healthy at all. Although, if you ask them, they will all tell you that they think they are fine.
Jessica battled anorexia in her teens. Mary Kate has been to a treatment center for an eating disorder, and Keira has said that Anorexia runs in her family but that she herself is not afflicted. When Keira showed up to the European premiere of "The Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" looking extremely thin in a halter dress, the anorexia talk started.
The pressure to be thin in Hollywood is intense. Since the fashion industry is starting to set boundaries on health standards for models, perhaps it's time that Hollywood start doing the same.
