Lana Condor Gets Candid About the Pressure of Looking a Certain Way

Lana Condor Gets Candid About the Pressure of Looking a Certain Way

Lana Condor is on the cover of Elle Canada‘s April 2019 issue, out on March 11.

Here’s what the 21-year-old To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before star had to say…

On looking a certain way: “You’re kind of the first person I’ve talked to about this, but I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia—and also what it’s like to be a friend to someone who has that. I think it’s time to give people comfort. You have to eat. You have to stop thinking that a certain body shape is ideal, because it’s not.”

On saving the planet: “We have 12 years to save the planet. But if we don’t do anything within the next 12 years, we’re f–ked, and all the animals that we take for granted every single day…our children will not know what they look like and will think about them the way we think about dinosaurs.”

On life growing up: “In high school, I didn’t really go to parties; I would just hang out with my parents, have good food and watch movies with them.”
