We were shocked and saddened to hear that “True Blood” star Kristin Bauer admitted that she pretty much starves herself to stay in shape for the show. “The other day I realized as long as I’m in this business, I’m going to be hungry” she told PopEater
. “The camera really does add 10 pounds. I’m trying to stay under the weight I want to look like on TV. It’s a good incentive to stay slim and is probably adding years to my life.” What?! Perpetual hunger is no way to live, but it’s sadly common in Hollywood where celebrity ladies live and die by the scale. Bauer’s honesty is almost refreshing, amid a slew of celebs who claim that they stay stick thin through regular exercise and eating healthily. But many famous women aren’t immune to the pressures to be supernaturally thin — and we’ve compiled a list of other celebrity women who admitted that the fame game has had a negative impact on their health and body image.
