SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR: “I HAVE BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER”


Sarah Michelle Gellar is back! She returns to television in her CW show The Ringer and I love it. She plays two people and does it well. It seems like she had the perfect life gorgeous daughter and married to Freddie Prince Jr., what could be wrong. In the October issue for Health magazine Sarah Michelle Gellar reveals:

“I’m a female! I totally have body dysmorphic disorder I think most women do. A makeup artist friend once said, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen you look in a mirror.’ I’m surrounded by them all the time — you sit in hair and makeup — so I guess I just have this mechanism where I tune it out. So every once in a while, I’ll look and I’ll be like, ‘Wait, that’s what I look like?’

Body dysmorphia is a psychological disorder where a person is concerned and obsessed about their physical appearance or a physical defect on their body. Gellar also suffers from scoliosis:

“I like anything outdoors. But I’m just as happy on a treadmill. I love Pilates. I grew up with, and I still have, major scoliosis. Growing up in Manhattan, you had your schoolbag, but we were so trend-conscious, nobody wanted to put a backpack on both shoulders, so almost all the girls I grew up with have it to some degree, because we all were so lopsided. So Pilates not only is a great exercise, but does relieve a lot of discomfort.”

I love that woman is admitting that she is not perfect, but jeeze who knew she had to many issues.
