“Not that looking old is bad! Aging gracefully is beautiful," the Sweet Charity actress quickly added, clarifying her sarcastic quip.

In another vulnerable moment, the blonde beauty detailed her past eating disorder. "If I got down to 110 [pounds], she'd be like... 'How'd you do it?' And the reason was, I had an eating disorder. I would eat five almonds in a day. And if I had six, I would cry and I wouldn't want to leave the house. And that stuck with me for years and years and years," she explained.

I have writing all over my mirrors in my bathroom so that I don’t look in them," she explained in a recent episode of her podcast with Sigler, who is also battling the disease. "Because I will like fall on the ground and cry. That’s how I feel now."

“I’m not working. I have a closet full of clothes that I can’t wear, and I have no money coming in. I don’t want to spend money on new clothes. I would just like to wear the ones that I already own," the former Married With Children actress said.
