Lilyians as you must know, To The Bone debuts today on Netflix! This is a very special project for Lily Collins and the director Marti Noxon as it brings up a subject that nowadays is still seen as a taboo, anorexia. The Hollywood Reporter has published an article about the movie, in which Lily and Marti speak about what inspired the story, the controversy and much more. You can ready the article bellow!

What Is It About?

To The Bone stars Lily Collins as Ellen, a young woman who makes a last attempt to conquer her severe anorexia by entering a group recovery home. Keanu Reeves plays the home’s lead doctor, Carrie Preston plays her stepmother, and Alex Sharp, Alanna Ubach and Retta are among those who help her through the program.

The dramedy, which Netflix acquired after it premiered at Sundance to positive reviews, debuts in limited theaters and on the platform on July 14. THR’s film critic called it “occasionally harrowing but also surprisingly warm and funny.”

Who Inspired the Story?

The film is based on the experiences of Marti Noxon, who created the Bravo series Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce and helped launch the Lifetime drama UnReal. Noxon, who makes her feature directorial debut with the movie, spent much of her teens and early 20s in and out of hospitals. “In writing this, I didn’t want to try to show the particularities of this one ism, but to talk about the underlying issues,” Noxon (second from right, above) tells THR. “Eating disorders for me, like substance abuse [for others], was me wanting to escape a certain pain or level of feeling that I didn’t want to have, and until I faced those feelings, I wasn’t going to get better. I think that’s universal — it’s no different from using drugs or alcohol or any other thing to not feel.”

Collins herself also suffered from anorexia in real life. She received the script while writing about her own experience for her recently-released memoir, and was drawn to its authenticity as well as its surprising sense of humor. “It was so serendipitous,” Collins recalls. “I feel very fortunate to have had the experience when your life’s mission and the mission of a movie so brilliantly get to be intertwined.”

As you know, Lily stopped by the BBC Radio studios back in May, where she made an appearance on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show. It appears that it wasn’t the only appearance she made in the studios that day as it has been recently released a video of her speaking about To The Bone on Woman’s Hour, which you can watch bellow!

USA Today wasn’t the only publication Lily spoke to while doing press for To The Bone. Harper’s Bazaar was another publication that Lily spoke with, in which she is questioned about how she did research for the movie, the key factors that helped her recover from the eating disorder and what advice would she give anyone who’s suffering from it.

Playing an anorexia victim would be a challenging role for any actress, let alone if they’ve suffered from an eating disorder in the past. Lily Collins took the risk when she took on To The Bone, which stages the journey of a young woman battling with anorexia as she enters a group rehabilitation home.

Directed by Marti Noxon – best known for her producing and directing work on TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer – the film is part autobiographical, rendering it more accurate than former, more simplistic screen representations of the disorder – there are secret sit-ups in the dead of the night, xylophone chests and animal-like cries of the truly tormented. Although expectedly disturbing in parts, it’s also flecked with a dark humour that was important to both Collins and Noxon.

Collins herself lost a huge amount of weight for the part and, harrowingly, was even complimented on her appearance – a dangerous situation to be in for someone who has fought an eating disorder in the past. However, it’s exactly reactions like these that prompted her to sign up to the film – which at that point didn’t even have a distributor.

Ahead of the film’s Netflix release on Friday 14 July, we talked to Collins about the project and how it helped her come to terms with her own relationship with food.

Given your history, did you have any reservations about taking the role on?

“I got this script randomly – I had ironically just written a chapter in my book about my history having an eating disorder just a week prior. So it felt that the universe was saying that this is probably something you should be talking about on a much larger scale. I never reached the point where I needed medical attention and went to hospital, so I never took the time to talk about the facts. You tend to surround yourself with myth when you’re going through an eating disorder. I saw it as an opportunity to better understand my disorder better. I was nervous, but also really excited to finally tell my story through a character, but also unburden myself. It was very freeing.”
