Portia has an emotional sit down with Oprah where she discusses her very serious and shocking battle with anorexia!

Portia de Rossi may currently be happily married to Ellen DeGeneres and at the height of her career, but she recently revealed to Oprah Winfrey she spent years suffering from a severe case of anorexia! The actress told the talk show host she ate just 300 calories a day, at one point weighing as little as 82 pounds! “I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds, ” she says.

Portia is of course now better and attributes her anorexia to her fears over being gay E! reports. While she says she was never proud of her disorder, she does admit she was excited with the amount of control she was able to have over her body.

Oprah needs to do that diet. Portia is a crybaby that should shut her idiotic mouth.

Those of you that think that Anorexia is just a “crybaby” excuse, it is NOT!! I’ve suffered from anorexia and have heartfelt sympathy for Portia de Rossi. Everything that she mentions on Oprah is true, very true. Those that have not suffered from this disorder have no right to lash at people who have really suffered.
