Lawless Bulimic No More

05/17/1999 at 12:00 AM EDT

"Xena: Warrior Princess" star Lucy Lawless has a blunt message for anorexics: "Just quit your bloody nonsense." The stunning New Zealander tells the upcoming issue of USA Weekend that she is actually tired of hearing about eating disorders. (Anorexics tend to starve themselves and exercise obsessively, while bulimics typically binge on food, then vomit or use laxatives to purge themselves.) "Anorexia sort of bores me," she said. "You think you're going to get respect, attention, blah blah blah, and it's quite the opposite." Lawless says she speaks from experience. "I used to quite like bulimia. I used to think that was fun."
