Dioguardi struggled with depression and binge eating in her early 20s. She says: "Back then I was a size 6 or 8; now I'm more like a size 2. Food is not what I use to anesthetize myself anymore... This shoot was less about beauty than about taking a risk and showing people a side of me they never have seen"
"Some women want bigger breasts," said the Entourage actress Emmanuelle Chriqui. "But [I wish] I could have had a dancer's body. I sometimes wear plunging necklines because they make me feel smaller."
As for Colbie Caillat, she hopes this photo shoot is seen in the right light. "I worried that it might make [my younger fans] think I was changing somehow. I hope they think to themselves, 'Yeah, she's showing a woman's body, and it's beautiful.'"
