Zoe Kravitz‘s new film The Road Within features her as an anorexic and bulimic character, and the already tiny star recently admitted that she lost weight for the film by using an unconventional method: eating clay.
She opened up to Us Weekly about doing a cleanse to lose 20 pounds in preparation for the role:
“I tried to do it the healthiest way as possible, even though it’s not healthy to do. I ended up drinking clay because it cleans out your body and fills you up. I was eating like a Mason jar of pureed vegetables a day and running.”
“I’ve struggled with it myself in the past. I think all young women do. There are a bunch of images that are thrown in our faces all the time about what we’re supposed to look like at 14, 15, 16. It’s confusing. I think every woman can identify with that struggle.”
Although the cleanse was a successful one for Zoe, the 25-year-old actress said she would never encourage anyone to try it because the process for her was an awful one.
That’s dedication. But please, listen to Zoe and don’t try this at home.
