Lily Collins plays anorexia sufferer in new Netflix film: get the details

Lily spoke about the role

The film will be released on Netflix on 14 July, and Lily has previously spoken about the role in relation to her own struggle with an eating disorder. She told Variety: "This movie was really important for me to be a part of because as a teenager I suffered from eating disorders. So this was something that right away when I met [writer and director] Marti [Nixon], I was like, 'Oh my God! We have to work together, we have to tell this story.' Marti was so nurturing right away to reference my experiences but also, in a way, playing the part of Marti's life so we shared a lot of experiences and talked a lot."

During the Sundance festival, Marti added: "I felt like there have only been movies on TV about it, and that problem hasn't gotten much better since I was a kid. So I wanted to bring it to a bigger screen with a little more humour and a little more perspective on now, from being older."
