EXCERPT

COMMENTARY
A note about the Lucy Lawelss bulimia comments from the USA Weekend article which went out on the AP feed.

PRIMARY SOURCE

   The battle of eating disorders:

   Lucy Lawless, who battles evildoers in the show "Xena: Warrior Princess," has
a blunt message for anorexics.

   "To any girls out there who are thinking of it, or are just getting into it,
just quit your bloody nonsense," the New Zealander tells the upcoming issue of
USA Weekend.

   Lawless says she is actually tired of hearing about the eating disorder.  

   "I've got to say 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."

   She say she speaks from experience.

   "I used to quite like bulimia. I used to think that was fun."
