De Rossi once weighed 82 pounds on 300 calorie-a-day diet

The actress, who is married to Ellen DeGeneres, has opened up about her battle with anorexia in her new book Unbearable Lightness – and she fought back tears as she talked frankly about her lowest period during a recent taped interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the tearful chat, which will air in America on Monday (01Nov10), the Australia-born star reveals she once weighed just 82 pounds (37.1 kilograms).

She says, “It wasn’t that I was proud of it, but it was certainly a recognition for my self-control. I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds. And that’s what I was holding onto to. I didn’t think about anything else.”
