Lohan 'appalled' at bulimia claim
Lindsay Lohan
Lohan also starred in Freaky Friday and Herbie: Fully Loaded
US actress Lindsay Lohan has denied she told a magazine reporter she suffered from the eating disorder bulimia.

The 19-year-old Mean Girls star said she was "appalled" at the article in Vanity Fair last week, which quoted her as saying she had made herself sick.

In a statement to Teen People magazine, Lohan said her words had been "misused and misconstrued" and her weight loss last year was not down to bulimia.

But Vanity Fair said it was standing by the story and reporter Evgenia Peretz.

Vanity Fair statement

Lohan, who was released from hospital last week after being treated for an asthma attack, told the magazine she had dabbled in drugs "a little".

The magazine also quoted Lohan on her weight loss saying: "I was making myself sick". The article noted Lohan was "referring to bulimic episodes".

Lohan was also quoted saying: "I knew I had a problem and I couldn't admit it."

But in the statement released to Teen People, Lohan said: "The words that I gave to the writer for Vanity Fair were misused and misconstrued, and I'm appalled with the way it was done.

"Aside from [the writer's] lies and changing of my words, I am blessed to have this job and wonderful family that I do."

Teen People said Lohan's denial was regarding Vanity Fair's reporting of her alleged bulimia, not drug use.

In a statement, Vanity Fair said: "Evgenia Peretz is one of our most reliable reporters. Every word Lindsay Lohan told her is on tape. Vanity Fair stands by the story."
