Pressure Of Show Made Davis Binge

SEX AND THE CITY star KRISTIN DAVIS has slammed the show that shot her to fame, insisting the pressure to be thin turned her into a binge eater. The 40-year-old actress, who played CHARLOTTE YORK in the popular US series, claims constant criticism left her craving food highs. But a yo-yo diet and punishing exercise regime soon took its toll on the star. She tells gossip site The Scoop, "Everyone would talk about their diets and working out and what it made me do was go to craft services - where all the food for the cast and crew was - and I would eat. "(Then) I decided that I was going to be very tough and run seven miles, three times a week. "I was killing myself. My ankles hurt, my knees hurt and I was working 18-hour days." When Davis agreed to star in Sex And The City, a reporter asked which part she would play, saying she was too large to play the lead. Davis adds, "I tried not to cry and said I had to leave. "I immediately walked to the drug store and bought a bunch of cookies because that was my reaction... to rebel and say, 'To hell with you, I'm going to eat what I want.'"
