Mary-Kate Olsen: Anorexia Almost Killed Me

Pint size mogul Mary-Kate Olsen has stayed mum about her battle with anorexia since she was diagnosed just after her 18th birthday, but she's speaking out now and says the illness nearly killed her.

She says, "There have definitely been times in my life when I just turned to people and said, 'I'm done - this is too much for me. This is too over-whelming.’"

I'm sure growing up in the public eye wasn't easy; can you imagine being famous since you were 9 months old? That's crazy! They can’t even poop or get Starbucks without making headlines.
