Christina Ricci - Christina Ricci's Devastation At Eating Disorder Revelation

Christina Ricci admits having her eating disorder outed at the age of 14 was a ''devastating'' experience.

The 'Bel Ami' actress - who shot to fame as a child after appearing in the 'Addams Family' franchise - explained while it was a ''horrifying'' thing to have happen, it made her vow to be ''completely honest'' for the rest of her life so no one could ever uncover any more of her secrets.

She told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: ''Somebody actually found out about it and outed me while I was recovering. It was a horrifying thing to do to a 14-year-old trying to cope with a devastating illness.

''Out of rage, I vowed that no one would ever be able to out me for a secret again. So I was going to be completely honest in the rest of my life. I don't want to be hurt in that way again.''

The 32-year-old star admitted becoming famous at such a young age meant it took her ''a while'' to be comfortable with who she is.

Christina added: ''It took a while for me to be comfortable with who I was. To realise everyone might not get my sense of humour; everyone might not like me.

''You know what, I'm not going to change who I am. I've tried. It doesn't work. I've never been very Hollywood.''
