Anorexia also extends to Male Celebrities

Starlets get a lot of criticism because of 'suddenly shrinking woman' act but I have noticed another trend...

Now him currently at 22.

That is pretty pencil thin.

He wasn't exactly chubby before but there is a difference.

One thing is loosing weight, the other is exaggeration that you don't even look alike to who you were.

With men, it is hard to tell with muscle, age, and etc. but British actor/singer Adam Rickett who is now 29 today (May 29) reported that he suffered from Anorexia according to this article from Anorexia Web.

Here are articles from Anred and Ezine Articles. I personally think that American media and society put too much on image and body type that it causes a psychological effect on us that is not the main reason but one of the reasons why most of our population is overweight. We want everything quick but then we get depressed with the constant bombardment of these images. It is damaging and that's why we see these effects, one both sides. I am not here to point fingers and judge but I am just concerned about these young men's self-esteem. That we are fooled into thinking that eating food is bad.

Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein was really overweight and underwent Gastric bypass surgery before he dated Nicole Richie.

Here is the 'before' picture that was sort of hard to find. He died in 2009 after a drug overdose.

Then of course, celebrities over thirty use botox and plastic surgery to look skinner and younger: Makemeheal.com (David Beckham, Kevin Costner)
