Diane Keaton on Bulimia: 'I Was an Addict'


Diane Keaton opens up to Ellen DeGeneres about her past bulimia and explains that Woody Allen was the one to prompt her to get therapy for her "addiction."

Keaton said the problem developed when she was in her twenties and living on her own for the first time. "It was a hard time because I didn't know what to do. I didn't know how to live because I'd had so much structure before," the actress revealed on Tuesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I think sometimes you turn to things and you get lost. I really was an addict. I was an actual addict," Keaton said. She added: "It's hard for me to believe now." Watch the video to hear Keaton's advice to others who are trying to overcome an eating disorder.
