Eddie Murphy’s Daughter Reveals Modeling Horror Stories Of What Models Are Doing To Stay Thin

20130619-124147.jpg

Our buddies over at FitPerez recently reported the low down on what really goes on in the modeling industry and It’s not as pretty as it may seem:

Model Bria Murphy, Eddie Murphy‘s daughter, recently divulged some horror stories of what she’s personally seen and experienced in the fashion world.

The 23-year-old made her confessions during a segment on Good Morning America, saying:

“Lots of girls get addicted to drugs and anorexia, it’s — there’s a whole list of things, because it’s a lot of pressure to be perfect. I’ve heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice … they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton’s not doing anything. It’s just dissolving. And it makes you think you’re full, but you’re not.”

Bria admitted that the pressure gets to her sometimes as well. She said:

“Oh yeah, absolutely … I’m a small girl naturally, but I can gain weight. And I’m going through little hormonal changes and my body’s changing and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m gaining weight this week, I’m losing weight next week.’ It’s your job to go into a room … and some people will just say no without an explanation, and some will be like, ‘Oh, your nose is too big. Your butt’s too big. Oh, your legs are flabby.’ Like, they’ll just go on you, ‘Oh, you need to tighten that up.'”

We can’t imagine how hard it must be to hear stuff like this day in and day out! But Bria must have steel will because she’s not letting any of that stop her!

She admitted:

In an interview with Men’s Health mag, he revealed his motivation on his amazing physique for his role as a werewolf on the show, saying:

“I’m playing a werewolf. I want to look sinewy. I want to look like an animal when the shirt comes off, but I want it to be misleading when I have the shirt on.”

Getting that great body was not easy for Manganiello. He admitted to Men’s Health that he had an intense work out regimen that changed over time.

Nice bod, Joey!

This is not the first time Gisele has posted a picture of her doing yoga on Instagram. Back in May, she posted a picture of her and a friend doing yoga with the caption,

“A beautiful way to start the morning practicing with my friend Cristina Kalyani Paes.”

After giving birth in 2009 to her son Benjamin, Gisele told Vogue,

“I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week”

to get back into her model shape, so I am sure she did the same thing when she gave birth to Vivian in 2012. She also was very smart while pregnant admitting,

picstitch-8

Snooki sure has been progressing with her weight loss since having her baby, but not everyone is impressed with her accomplishments.

Just recently, she posted a pic on Instagram showing how she is taking her health serious, so far losing 42 pounds. But critics

Snooki responded: “Too skinny my ass. #FIT.”

The “Jersey Shore” star has been following a strict diet and workout routine to get her the great body she has now. Way to go, Snooks!

Snooki is not the only celeb that slammed critics for being “too skinny,” Kendall Jenner too has also received the same criticism.

Jenner just recently posed for Harper’s Bazaar magazine for the April 2013 edition, but during an interview with Harper’s Arabia, she opened up about the taunts about her weight, saying:

“I’m constantly criticized for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it’s not a nice feeling.”

We agree, Kendall.

Regardless of the harsh criticism, we still think that Snooks and Kendall look amazing! Keep up the great work girls!
