Tyler Stops Dieting To Focus On Motherhood
The Lord Of The Rings star spent more than a decade battling with her weight to stay slim for movie roles and modelling shoots - but now she is a mother, all that has changed.
She tells Glamour magazine, "I've been a model and actress since I was 14, so I've been on a diet my whole life.
"But once I gave birth, I didn't want to think about myself or feel insecure about my career, I wanted to think about my child. So I stopped worrying about diets."
The 29-year-old claims the industry standards to be thin have put even more pressure on young actresses and models adding, "I definitely think the girls look too skinny now.
"I'm friends with (models) Helena Christensen and Linda Evangelista, and I remember Linda telling me that when she was a model (in the '90s), a sample size was a six or eight.
"Now a sample size is a zero or two. That's pretty alarming. There's a lot of pressure on (the models). It's not healthy. I can't even imagine what that's like."
