Taking a note in her memoir titled 'Sorry Not Sorry', she mentioned, "By the time I was a sophomore, I started feeling that what had begun as a game had maybe gone too far. I just avoided food at all costs, " she said.

"If my mom had packed a lunch for me, I'd either trash it or find some excuse to give it away," she added further.

The 29-year-old actress revealed that she didn't even realise it was going to be such a big issue on her, until the time she came to take a note about it.

"I was so young and it just seemed to be the norm. Everyone was going through similar stuff. I had no way of knowing if I was going through it worse. I was juggling my feelings and it makes me sad that there are girls still going through that 15 years after I went through it," said Rivera.
