After years of claiming her skinny figure was due to being "small-boned," the actress has finally revealed grueling work schedules and the stress of finishing the show, which was axed in 2002, made her stop wanting to eat.
Flockhart says, "At the time of all that, I was seriously stressed. I was working 15-hour days on the set and then I was dealing with the end of the show, which was basically my life.
"I started under-eating, over-exercising, pushing myself too hard and brutalizing my immune system. I guess I just didn't find time to eat.
"I am much more healthy these days."
Flockhart Rubbishes Ford Engagement Rumors
The 41-year-old Ally McBeal star claims she is indifferent to marriage and is happy to continue living with the 63-year-old two-time divorcee and caring for her adopted son Liam, 5.
She says, "We really haven't discussed it. He's had two long marriages before.
"But we're just very happy and content with the way things are. To be honest I can go either way."
