Brooklyn Decker's father staged "an intervention" to stop the beauty developing an eating disorder when she was an aspiring model.
The 23 year old began her catwalk career as a teenager, and admits she was under pressure to stay super-slim.
Decker embarked on a string of "crazy diets" to shed weight, but her father stepped in and his stern words made the star stop obsessing about food.
She tells Self magazine, "I was always with other aspiring models. There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat.
"It freaked me out. I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight. My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body."
