Catherine Zeta Jones Claims Anorexia Rumors are Hogwash

October 29th, 2007 // 8 Comments

OK, so maybe Catherine Zeta Jones’ exact words didn’t include the term “hogwash,” but it expresses the sentiment she’s been echoing in response to reports that she was suffering from the eating disorder. When she was told of the rumors by her husband, Michael Douglas, she laughed at the suggestion.

“Michael was laughing at me. He told me what [people had] said – that stories say I’m anorexic. Do I look anorexic?” she told PEOPLE Saturday at the Savannah Film Festival. “How could I ever, ever be anorexic?”

Jones claims that her physique can be attributed to exercise and eating in moderation. I don’t necessarily think that Catherine’s response (which didn’t include a simple “no”) means that she was doing the whole politician “answer with no answer” dance, but I do find it interesting that she’s using the logic that people with eating disorders are all easily visibly identifiable. Kind of the way all child molesters have mustaches and drive creepy, windowless rape vans.

    Uh, she’s not anorexic. Stupid and irrelevant, yes, but not an idiot.
    She and Kimora Lee should do lunch.

    I find it interesting that her husband told her this. Were they in a fight at the time? Is he trying to make her feel bad? You know, something like “You should here what everyone is saying behind your back…I guess I’m your only friend”
    type of stuff?

    She has lost a lot of weight recently, although she doesn’t look anorexic in these photos.

    Maybe she’s an underachieving anorexic.
