Male Stars Who've Had Eating Disorders

Not every Hollywood star who's struggled with an eating disorder has been female. Here are male celebrities who've battled the problem. A sampling:

Dennis Quaid

After losing 40 pounds to play the dying Doc Holliday in Wyatt Earp, he started struggling with what he called "manorexia" and ended up getting treatment. "I’d look in the mirror and still see a 180 pound guy, even though I was 138 pounds," he said. "For many years, I was obsessed about what I was eating, how many calories it had, and how much exercise I’d have to do."

Billy Bob Thornton

After filming U-Turn, he lost 59 pounds, and once said, "I think I had a little mental problem. I got anorexic; of course, I denied it to my girlfriend and everyone else who said I had an eating disorder."

Elton John

He struggled with bulimia, and so did his friend Princess Di. They often talked about it, and he says her support helped him get healthy. So did rehab in 1990.

Russell Brand

As an overweight teen, he became bulimic at 14, he once said. "I had problems with food and self-harming ... my feeling about my childhood was that it was lonely and difficult." He struggled with the eating disorder again when he entered rehab, but is now recovered.

Richard Simmons

Before he became a fitness icon, he struggled with compulsive eating—and then tried diet pills, laxatives, starving himself, and purging after binges before ultimately recovering.

Reid Ewing

The Modern Family star suffered from body dysmorphia, leading to multiple plastic surgery attempts. Before going under the knife, Reid admits in a Huffington Post essay, “My history with eating disorders and the cases of obsessive compulsive disorder in my family never came up.”

Kit Harington

The Game of Thrones hunk stopped just short of developing dysmorphia — which often leads to eating disorders — while training for 2014’s Pompeii. "I was going to the gym three times a day for six days a week,” he tells Vulture. “So the trainer stepped in and said, 'Look, you don't need to go through all of this. This is body dysmorphia now.'"


The famed rapper battled an eating disorder after kicking his prescription pill habit. Due to Em’s obsession with cardio and calorie counting, he eventually dropped to 149 pounds. “I got an addict’s brain, and when it came to running, I think I got a little carried away,” he explains to Men’s Journal . “I became a f—king hamster. Seventeen miles a day on a treadmill. I ran to the point where I started to get injured.”

Zayn Malik

The former One Direction crooner was in the depths of a “serious” eating disorder before leaving the band in 2015, although he was never officially diagnosed. "It was the one area where I could say, ‘No, I'm not eating that," he told The Sunday Times. "Once I got over the control, the eating just came back into place, super naturally... I came back to the U.K. and spent some time with my mum and got some TLC, and she cooked me food and I got back in touch, mentally, with a lot of the things I'd lost."

Aaron Carter

Aaron Carter, younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and a 2000s pop star in his own right, told his Twitter followers about his eating disorder. “By the way, y’all wanna know why I’m so skinny?” he tweeted on April 26. “It's because at 19 I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, I didn’t choose that. Be kind to me. “It’s a terrible stress condition that affects me having an appetite, and I’m sorry this is the way I am. Basically I have an eating disorder. I’m sorry, sometimes I really wish I did look better, or I eat more like y’all say. This life doesn’t come w much stability.”
