Brittany Snow's dangerous diet



Snow_2 Disturbing news from, which is where budding starlet and Tampa native Brittany Snow (Hairspray) chose to reveal that she once had a full-on eating disorder. "I lived on pineapple," said the  21-year-old actress, who was only 12 at the time. She lost 10 pounds, received compliments on her looks, and then couldn’t stop. "It kind of progressed into this thing where I needed to always be dieting and losing weight and more weight," she said. At age 15, she was stepping on the scale 10 to 15 times a day, and her hair was falling out. "I was getting this fuzz on my face and I was always cold — always to the point of uncontrollably shaking." At 85 pounds, she began cutting herself. At age 19, she went to rehab and got help for her depression. “But the eating stuff was still really hard to deal with," she said. "It’s still a struggle."
