Mayim Bialik Opens Up About Her Years Long Anorexia Struggles

Mayim Bialik is opening up about her eating disorder struggles in the latest episode of her podcast.

The Call Me Kat star revealed that she’s been in recovery for the past two years.

“I happen to be a compulsive overeater, and I’m an anorexic and I’m a restricter and I’ve never said that,” Mayim revealed. “I eat too much when no one’s looking. I’m eating so I don’t have to feel anything.”

She shared that “this is the first time I’ve ever talked about it, because people are like, ‘Well, why are you so overweight?’ Well, because I’m a compulsive overeater in addition to being an anorexic and restricter.”

“I’m trying to release the pressure of being 15 pounds lighter, which is what I, quote, ‘should be’ by Hollywood standards,” Mayim continued while speaking with author and activist Glennon Doyle. “I’m trying to release the pressure of caring that I’m wearing the clothes that make me look like those other women, even though I’m not those other women. Those are, like, my short-term 2021 goals. Like, when can I wear all black and not have a stylist be like, ‘We need you in more color.’ It’s like, how about if I wear black because I feel the best and I like it, and they make a lot of cool clothes in the color black?”

Many other celebrities have spoken out about their struggles with eating disorders, including Demi Lovato, Katharine McPhee, and Outer BanksMadelyn Cline.

Mayim is set to be one of the guest hosts on Jeopardy!

and Mayim Bialik had a virtual reunion on Ellen on Thursday (January 14).

The former Big Bang Theory co-stars appeared on the talk show to promote their new sitcom Call Me Kat, which Mayim stars in and is produced by Jim‘s production company.

During their interview, Mayim shared the story on how Jim approached her to star in the show.

“Jim came to me and he said ‘I want to know what you think about this project that my company has.’ It’s this Miranda show, it was really popular on the BBC,” Mayim shared.

‘So I went home, I did a little research, and I came back the next day and I said ‘Well, Jim, that seems like a really awesome project. Good luck, you’ve got my vote of confidence!’” Mayim continued. “And he said, ‘No, I’m asking because I want you to be in it!’ I was shocked because I think I’m very annoying, but however annoying I am, he obviously still wanted to work with me.”

Jim then jumped in and said, “I think that the annoying quality you bring is what America responds to, Mayim. I think that’s what this character wanted.”

Ellen jokingly added, “That’s very relatable. Everyone – we know some annoying, so that’s perfect.”

During a recent interview, Jim revealed that he auditioned for this comedy series before landing a role in Big Bang Theory.
