Alexa Chung: “I’m Not Anorexic…”

Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung is consistently questioned about her weight, with many accusing the model and TV presenter of being anorexic. In the November issue of Elle Magazine, the 26-year-old confirms to the style mag that she doesn’t have an eating disorder and explained her dramatic weight loss was due to stress while filming her MTV US show Its On With Alexa Chung… 

“I don’t expect everyone to like me but I cannot express how frustrating it is to not be believed when you say “I don’t have an eating disorder”. You cannot imagine how stressed I was. It was really f***ing hard work and I had to keep saying how great MTV was, how I was having the best time, while looking like I’m dying. Anyone could see I wasn’t coping that well.It angers me because I don’t want to be a pin-up for young girls just for being thin. I don’t want to be admired for being thin, as opposed to being dressed well, and I don’t want the two to get confused. It really upsets me.That’s why I stopped using Twitter for a while because I was getting so much s*** about being anorexic.And I am not! I am genuinely not.”
