Mariacarla Boscono, one of the most important top model (as Forbes said), has signed Vogue.it’s petition against the pro-anorexia sites.
"How many times have I heard someone say ‘You are so thin! Do you eat?!” Yes, I’m thin but my body is proportional to my height. And I do eat and quite a bit. I started this career very young and I was really lucky to have my parents stay close. Not only did they insist I not quit school, they also made sure that I didn’t miss a meal during the day.
I have never had the slightest problem with food or anything resembling anorexia, which is a word that is often used and repeated in the wrong way. It’s almost a lack of respect for what a big tragedy it is and many times it is incorrectly used as a cliché about models and this problem. Those who read this site and those who are reading my words right now, I can only say EAT because tasting food is like embracing yourself. Your petition is so important and signing it is almost a duty out of the respect that life deserves!”
