?>

In honor of the first-ever World Eating Disorders Action Day on June 2, actor Keanu Reeves and his To the Bone cast members joinedtogether to raise awareness for the illnesses.

In an informative PSA, the cast membersrevealnine truths about eating disorders, which affect about 70 million people worldwide.

Actress Lily Collins opens the clip saying: “Truth No. 1: Many people with eating disorders look healthy, yet may be extremely ill.” Reeves follows with the second truth: “Families are not to blame and can be the patient’s and provider’s best allies in treatment.” Several more cast members finish the list.

Much like To the Bone, which tells the story of director Marti Noxons struggle with anorexia and road to recovery, the campaignaims tobring attention to the prominent health issue and challenge the many myths.

“The goals of the campaign are to advance the understanding of eating disorders as treatable, genetically linked illnesses; embrace diversity; raise awareness among policy makers to allocate resources and establish coherent national systems; and to advocate for change at an international level,” reads apress release provided byNational Eating Disorders Association(NEDA).
