Tyler Oakley Covers Seventeen Mag's Social Media Issue With Fellow YouTube Star Zoe Sugg
Here’s what the YouTube stars had to share with the mag:
Tyler on his eating disorder: “Talking about it is really hard because it’s something I suppress and work through every day. And I haven’t really talked about body image in videos. I assume when people read this, they’ll be like, ‘Oh, you’re not fat.’ That’s not what it’s about at all. Even when I was the skinniest I’d ever been, I was still not happy.”
Zoe on her struggle with anxiety: “A lot of young people look at me and think, She has the perfect life: She’s got the boyfriend, the house, the dog, the book, the successful YouTube channel. Not everything is perfect… Sometimes I have days where I don’t want to leave my bed, or I’ll have multiple panic attacks.”
On their friendship:
Zoe: “I instantly felt like we’d been mates forever, and you never feel like there’s any distance.”
Tyler: “She accepts people for who they are. She’s never questioned anything about me. I can just be me.”
