A note about the Lucy Lawelss bulimia comments from the USA Weekend article which went out on the AP feed.


    TOUGH TALK: Lucy Lawless , who battles evildoers in the show Xena: Warrior
Princess , has a blunt message for anorexics. "To any girls out there who are
thinking of it, or are just getting into it, just quit your bloody nonsense,"
the New Zealander says in the upcoming issue of USA Weekend . Ms. Lawless says
she is tired of hearing about the eating disorder. "I've got to say anorexia
sort of bores me," she said. "You think you're going to get respect, attention,
blah blah blah, and it's quite the opposite." Ms. Lawless say she speaks from
experience. "I used to quite like bulimia. I used to think that was fun."
Anorexics tend to starve themselves and exercise obsessively, while bulimics
typically binge on food, then vomit or use laxatives to purge themselves.
