Courtney Love has been struggling with drugs and alcohol and in 2008 she also had problems with her weight. She was thinner than ever. Courtney Love’s 2007 New Year’s resolution was to lose weight. Unfortunately, she lost too much weight and looked very unhealthy. On one of her concerts, she took a swig from a protein shake, then apologized to the crowd, saying: “had to take care of my eating disorder.” She then said she was joking and declared, “I don’t have an eating disorder.” We hope that she has changed her diet by now and is eating real food.
What happened with the other Courtney, Courtney Cox? She has always been healthy and glowing. In 2008 she shrunk two sizes. Yes, she has been skinny from time to time during “Friends” but never like that. Fortunately, she came around very quickly and today she looks healthy again.

Many celebrities are fighting with weight problems. Is it because of the pressure to become a size zero? Or is size zero not the ideal look any more? Has the trend shifted, or is size zero still what celebrities strive for?
