Jackie Evancho Opens Up About Struggling With an Eating Disorder & Body Dysmorphia

Jackie Evancho is opening up about her struggle with an eating disorder.

The 18-year-old America’s Got Talent superstar discussed her battle in an interview with Access.

During the interview, she spoke about having body dysmorphia and having an eating disorder while growing up in the public eye. She explained that she would “go days without eating” because she couldn’t look in the mirror without thinking she was “disgusting.”

“What got my parents to notice was me skipping dinners, as well as everything else,” she said.
