Chloe Cherry made her acting debut as Faye in the HBO television series Euphoria. Cherry is finally speaking out about her past struggles. Chloe recently revealed that she struggled with an eating disorder while working in the porn industry.
Chloe Cherry, a former porn star turned actress, developed an eating disorder at the age of 18 after an X-rated industry agent told her she was “fat.” As a teenager at the time, the “Euphoria” star claimed that the comment triggered her eating disorder.
“He said, ‘Everyone says that you’re fat and the fastest way to lose weight is by not eating,’” she said on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast on Wednesday. “He said that to me and I was like, ‘What the f*ck.’”
“He said that to me when I was 18, and it was so f*cking freaky because no one in my whole life had ever said that I was fat and then it just became an obsession.”
Cherry, who plays Faye on the hit HBO show, started a strict diet and restricted herself to 200 calories per day. She stated that she would conceal her disorder by pretending to be healthy by drinking only one green juice per day.
According to Page Six, she claimed that in order to get rid of the disorder, she had to give up all diets, including being vegan. Cherry also advised anyone suffering from an eating disorder to seek help from a mental health professional.
“I was just miserable and not treating my body well, and now that I don’t count a single calorie and literally just eat anything I want and do anything I want, my body actually looks better than it ever has my entire f*cking life.”
“I do not restrict my diet whatsoever. And that’s why I think a lot of people don’t think that I went through an eating disorder because I’m skinner now than I was even though I was starving myself then.”
Cherry said earlier in the interview with host Alex Cooper that she’d wanted to do porn for a long time but kept talking herself out of it until she saw how other porn stars lived their day-to-day lives on social media.
“There’s this term called ‘born for p*rn’ and it’s when you’re just able to do it. Like how some people are just able to open their mouth and sing a song really well, you know? Like some people just have these skills, these talents, they just have this ability. I was super comfortable.”
She went on to say that she didn’t have any nerves her first time doing porn because she knew it was meant to be. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
