    Too thin a no-win

   "Xena" star Lucy Lawless has nothing good to say about the plethora of
anorexic-looking actresses now inhabiting Hollywood. "Anorexia sort of bores
me," Lawless says. She adds, "To any girls out there who are thinking of it, or
are just getting into it, just quit your bloody nonsense! Enough already! It's a
total waste of time." The statuesque 5-foot, 10-inch New Zealander says she
speaks "from a little bit of experience. I used to quite like bulimia. I used to
think that was fun." But now she knows that nothing could be further from the
truth about eating disorders. "You think you're going to get respect, attention,
blah, blah, blah, and it's quite the opposite. People are turned off."
