Zosia Mamet of "Girls" is now speaking out about her eating disorder. This is the first time that she has revealed this to her fans. On Tuesday, Fox News shared what she had to say about it all. This disease is something that she has been fighting since she was a child.

She spoke out saying, "I was told I was fat for the first time when I was eight. I'm not fat; I’ve never been fat. But ever since then, there has been a monster in my brain that tells me I am. At times it has forced me to starve myself, to run extra miles, to abuse my body." Zosia spoke out about this in Glamour magazine in her own column.

At the age of 17, she wanted to die and would even look in the fridge trying to decide if she should eat or not. It was a really hard time for her and her fans are shocked to hear her speaking out about this now. Zosia Mamaet is gorgeous and you would never suspect that she was battling these demons.

She went on to say, "My dad eventually got me into treatment. He came home one night from a party, took me by the shoulders, and said, 'You're not allowed to die.' It was the first time I realized this wasn't all about me. I didn't care if I died, but my family did. That's the thing about these kinds of disorders: They're consuming; they make you egocentric; they're all you can see."

Right now Zosia looks amazing and is happy with her size. She said, "Today I'm at a healthy weight, though I realize that my obsession will always be with me in some way. For years the voice inside me has gotten louder or quieter at times. It may never disappear completely, but hopefully one day it'll be so quiet, it’ll only be a whisper and I’ll wonder, Was that just the wind?"
