Zoë Kravitz may lead a charmed life as the daughter of a rock star, but the 26-year-old admits that a childhood surrounded by fame and beauty led her to develop multiple eating disorders.
"I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18. I started with the eating disorder in high school," she tells the new issue of 'Complex' magazine.

"I don't think it was about the fame, but I think it was definitely about being around that world, seeing that world. I felt pressured," the only child of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet confesses. "My dad dated a lot of supermodels...My mother's a beautiful woman — I felt intimidated by that sometimes."
Struggling with both bulimia and anorexia for nearly a decade, it wasn't until she played a twenty-something with an eating disorder in a 2013 film that she realized she needed help.

Dropping down to just 90 pounds, "My parents got really scared for me," she shares. "It was f--ked up, man. You could see my rib cage."
Zoë's immune system shut down and she wasn't getting her period regularly as a result of the drastic weight loss. But on New Year's Eve that same year, things changed for the actress.

"I feel like something has left my body, like some part of me is gone now, something that was making me so insecure. And it feels amazing," she tells 'Complex.'
