Petra Nemcova Starved Herself

Supermodel Petra Nemcova, who used to date the 'You're Beautiful' singer James Blunt, says she used to starve herself in order to fit in with other models. This brings new meaning to the phrase, 'dying to fit in.'

She tells Britain's Closer magazine, "I may have curves now, but when I started it was in the middle of the heroin chic phase. The likes of Kate Moss and Jodie Kidd almost forced everyone to be really skinny. I tried many diets, from eating very little or just protein to having only fruit all day. It was terrible for my metabolism and took me years to recover."
