Eva Mendes reveals that she struggles with food
The actress opened up on Instagram
We know that glossy photos of celebs on Instagram aren’t exactly real. They’re edited, filtered and don’t tell the whole story. We know this… and yet, it can be easy to get swept up in the facade and end up feeling bad about our decidedly normal-looking lives, whether it’s what we had for lunch or our latest vacay.
That’s why it’s great when celebrities deliberately call out the fakeness on Insta. Enter Eva Mendes. This past weekend the superstar actress made a point of highlighting a retouched photo, sharing the following post:
38.9k Likes, 559 Comments - Eva Mendes (@evamendes) on Instagram: “Hey guys.⠀ ⠀ A few days ago I posted the picture on the left and made a comment that it was…”
She wrote: “A few days ago I posted the picture on the left and made a comment that it was retouched. Most the stuff I post is from my phone and not retouched FYI. But yes I do like a filter. Anyway wanted to post side by side with the unretouched image on the right so you can see the before and after. Always wanna be transparent with you all.”
Then Mendes went one step farther and opened up even more. In a response to a comment, she explained that she has ‘struggles with food’.
She wrote: “I want women to know it takes a lot for me to look this way and that I struggle with food among many other things.”
We wish more celebs were as open as Mendes about their relationship with food!
