Hey Lilyians! The past month, most specifically on May 16, Lily attended Project Heal 9th Anniversary Gala where she and To The Bone director Marti Noxon were honored for their work on the powerful film that is set to debut July 14 on Netflix. During the gala, she was interviewed by Project Heal and in the video bellow, you will hear Lily speak about the movie and her book Unfiltered. A special screening of the film will be screened tomorrow in New York City and if you live near by don’t hesitate to buy your ticket to watch it! You will find bellow the interview, along with a very sweet instagram post written by Marti Noxon for Project Heal’s instagram!
Join Project HEAL, Lily Collins and Alex Sharp for a special screening of To the Bone Monday evening in NYC. Link in bio for tickets! Please be advised this video contains depictions of eating disorder behaviors and images that may be triggering to those who are struggling with EDs. “Having struggled with Anorexia and Bulimia well into my 20s, I know firsthand the struggle, isolation and shame a person feels when they are in the grips of this illness. In an effort to tell this story as responsibly as we could, we spoke with other survivors and worked with Project HEAL throughout production in the hopes of being truthful in a way that wasn’t exploitive. That said, it’s important to remember that each person’s battle with eating disorders is unique and To The Bone is just one of the millions of eating disorder stories that could be told in the US at this very moment. My goal with the film was not to glamorize eating disorders, but to serve as a conversation starter about an issue that is too often clouded by secrecy and misconceptions. I hope that casting a little light into the darkness of this disease we can achieve greater understanding and guide people to help if they need it.” — Marti Noxon
