Zoe Kravitz: I Ate Clay For Movie Role
Actress reveals she took method acting to alarming levels...
Zoe Kravitz has made the shocking admission that she ate clay in order to lose weight for her latest film role.
The 25-year-old actress - the daughter of rock star Lenny Kravitz - told Us Weekly that she embarked on the dangerous diet as she prepared to play an eating disorder sufferer in The Road Within.
Kravitz also confessed to having had issues with her weight in the past.
"I did a cleanse," she told the mag. "I tried to do it the healthiest way as possible, even though it's not healthy to do.
"I ended up drinking clay, because it cleans out your body and fills you up. I was eating like a Mason jar of pureed vegetables a day and running."
But she did say it was "awful" and discouraged others from doing the same thing.
She continued: "I've struggled with it myself in the past.
"I think all young women do. There are a bunch of images that are thrown in our faces all the time about what we're supposed to look like at 14, 15, 16.
"It's confusing. I think every woman can identify with that struggle."
