You might know Debra Messing from her iconic role above Will & Grace or she * into my soapbox * GONE-SO-SOON fan’s favorite show, Break.
Anyway, the 51-year-old man recently spoke to Jameela Jamil on her podcast I weighand revealed that she was struggling with her body image while filming Will & Grace in the 90s.
“When I started Will & Grace, “she started,” I was size eight and what happened was, every time I went to try on, I couldn’t get dressed. Eighty percent of them I couldn’t fit in, and I would just hate my body and hate myself. “
“I love my costume designer. She will always say,” Don’t worry “, and she’ll talk to her assistant and say,” OK, you can call over and get a size. is it bigger? “And that’s what keeps repeating,” she added.
“So I started doing yoga every day and I did one of those meal delivery services. I started younger and then I was 6, and they said, ‘You’re losing weight, look you. great! ‘”continued.
Debra went on to explain that, in addition to participating in the show, walking on the red carpet contributed to her feeling the pressure to lose more weight.

I’m going to try to fit these gowns and of course they’re not a sample size, and it’s like, “Okay, we have to cut the seams, etc”
“This is arguably the best time of my life, being nominated for Best Actress in a TV show I love for the Emmy Awards, and stepping on the red carpet,” the actor to speak. , and then I stood next to all the other actresses that were half my size, and I felt fat, and I felt ugly. “
“I look back at those pictures and I’m so beautiful! I’m sorry that that’s my interpretation of reality, and it’s the torture I went through on my own.”
Then, now and forever, you are a splendid queen !!
