Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay Opens Up About Her Battle with an Eating Disorder
“I felt alone for so long, and I just hid,” she explained. “Then I started talking and held my head up and instead of saying sorry decided to tell myself that I matter. For a while, I really shied away from things.”
Findlay ultimately sought treatment for her eating disorder.
In the interview, she shares her view of society’s obsession with image. “We can feed certain ideas of what beauty is and what success is. There has to come a time where those aren’t the rules anymore. Then we can have a mature conversation about what that is about, and about depression,” Findlay shared.
