Miley Cyrus is fighting rumors that she's anorexic. A recent photo of a thinner-than-usual Cyrus leaving the gym sparked talks that the actress/singer had an eating disorder. Cyrus took to Twitter to settle the debate. "For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It's not about weight it's about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!" she tweeted Monday. "Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing! U won't go back!"
Ashley Judd is going after critics who have pointed out her recent "puffy" appearance. In an op-ed piece, Judd said the criticism over her looks has been "nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle." The actress added: "The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about."
Judd's publicist said the actress' "puffy" appearance was due to a host of medications taken to battle a sinus infection. Some have speculated the actress had a puffy appearance because of cosmetic surgery
While Judd may not have altered her appearance purposely, Anne Hathaway has. The actress was recently photographed with a very short haircut and looking less than her usual beautiful self. The changed appearance is for her role in Les Miserables. In the musical, Hathaway plays Fantine, a woman whose beauty deteriorates as she attempts to care for her child (selling both her two front teeth and her hair), turns to prostitution and becomes ill with tuberculosis. For the role, Hathaway is on a special diet but her publicist said Hathaway is not losing that much weight and is consuming more than 500 calories a day.
