   Xena takes on anorexia

   Lucy Lawless, who battles evildoers in the TV 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 is quoted in the upcoming
issue of USA Weekend.

   Lawless said she is 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."

   Lawless says she speaks from experience.

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

   Anorexics tend to starve themselves and exercise obsessively, while bulimics
binge on food, then vomit or use laxatives to purge what they ate.
