Jordana Brewster Opened Up About Her Struggles With an Eating Disorder

Jordana says that she started to binge in the first year of her marriage with Andrew.

“He was kind and safe and supported me,” she wrote. “I knew something was wrong with me. I had no creative output or outlet.”

However, Jordana “felt isolated, and the passivity drove me crazy. While my husband worked a full day on set, I would do the occasional audition. I was bored. I would raid the mini bar at the Four Seasons for snacks and then promptly go downstairs to make sure it was restocked and paid for before my husband realized anything was missing. I had a buzzing sense of chaos within me that clashed with my actual inertia. I was stuck.”

She added that it didn’t stop there and a “couple of years later, my disorder swung to the other extreme, and I started to restrict rather than binge.”

“The cliché that controlling your food gives you the illusion of control of your life is true. But it also does something else: A fixation with your body gives you tunnel vision,” Jordana says. “I was so focused on the number on the scale and the number of calories I consumed in a day that I ignored all other problems.”

Jordana “didn’t look closely at my career, my marriage,” and after “years of therapy” she got the help she needed with her control and eating issues.

“Now, I’m lucky to be at a level of peace with my body. If body issues do come up, I deal with them head-on.”
