   Warrior princess offers the skinny on anorexia

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