In an interview, the actress also shared how she once struggled with food and her weight. She said:
“Food has never been easy for me. She revealed that she had an unstable eating pattern when she was required to lose 20 pounds to appear in the 1985 movie War and Love. After this, it was hard for her to control her eating. She explained: “I came back from that and it triggered something. I ate everything in sight. My weight went up and then too far down.” After having a tough time managing her weight, she said she stopped going on the scale. “I’m so grateful that I don’t get on a scale because it’s never going to be the right number,” she said.
