Actress Laura Prepon reveals in a new book that her mother taught her how to have an eating disorder. Prepon, who began acting as a teenager on “That 70s Show” says, “My mother taught me bulimia. It started when I was 15 and lasted until my late twenties.” She explains in her part memoir/part guide book “You & I, As Mothers”, ” It was only after an open casting call at age 15 where she was told to immediately lose 25 pounds, that the goal of weight loss became a “shared project” with her mother.
The “Orange Is The New Black” star says her mother is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s adding, “I don’t want to be angry with her, especially now, because I don’t know how much time we have left. I want those moments when she is present to be good”.
