Taylor Swift shares she struggled with an eating disorder

She addresses her issues with eating in her new Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

"Miss Americana" is billed as a revealing documentary about Swift's life behind the music and camera and includes her talking candidly for the first time about struggling with an eating disorder.

This year, the opening film for Sundance's U.S. Documentary category was the highly anticipated Taylor Swift documentary "Miss Americana", premiering at the Eccles Theatre.

During the Netflix film, the "Lover" singer is heard saying: "It's not good for me to see pictures of myself every day".

Swift told the magazine she had come to realise that "if you eat food, you have energy, get stronger, you can do all these shows and not feel [enervated]", and cited the body image activist and actor Jameela Jamil as an influence on her recovery.

"Miss Americana" director Lana Wilson praised Swift for tackling the topic materials, telling Choice, "I imagine it's really courageous to see any person who's a job model for thus many ladies and women be really honest about that".

On the Eccles stage, Swift said she grew more political after after she countersued, and won, against a Denver radio DJ whom she said groped her during a meet-and-greet before a concert.

"I don't think you know you're doing that when you're doing it gradually".

Swift went on to say that she mentally registered the headline as a "punishment".

Swift says that she was often praised for her slim frame, with stylists at photoshoots telling the singer that it was "so amazing" that she could fit into sample sizes. "Usually we have to make alterations to the dresses'". During a montage of hurtful comments against the backdrop of endless paparazzi photos, Swift explained how she internalized the ones suggesting she looked pregnant, which led to her struggle with an eating disorder.

Swift's years-long journey to body acceptance and self-acceptance is just one aspect of the revealing documentary, "Miss Americana", which hits Netflix on January 31. On the beauty standards and living up to the expectations: "It's all just fucking impossible!"

"It was just, let's film, let's see what you see", Swift said. Wilson is there to capture the scene when Swift tells her family and team. It graphes a turning point in her job when she started speaking honestly regarding national politics for the very first time.

Swift picked Wilson for the job on the strength of Wilson's 2013 documentary "After Tiller", in which she profiled the four doctors in America who, at that time, still performed third-trimester abortions. "I practice a lot".

She added, "And so, it made all of that all correct, it didn't make me actually really feel like, 'Oh, she seems like she's obtained a extraordinarily good half for her now, ' and I really want to thanks for that".

Swift admitted that she was reluctant to open up about her past sufferings and that she is still "fairly uncomfortable" talking about them now.

"But in the context of every other thing that I was doing or not doing in my life, I think it makes sense", she added.

While many have praised that Taylor has looked healthier and happier now, Taylor spoke about how she felt during her "1989" era, where she displayed a much thinner look; mentioning that she severely under-ate which affected her stamina on tour.
