Tallulah Willis is opening up about the changes her body has undergone during her recovery from an eating disorder. The youngest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore recently shared before-and-after photos of her body on Instagram, along with a trigger warning to alert her fans that one of the pictures was a “pre-recovery image.” In the post’s caption, she expressed her love for herself and acknowledged her own courage. She encouraged her followers to stay strong and included hashtags related to eating disorder recovery and self-love.
In the photo carousel, Tallulah shared an older picture of herself, showcasing her smaller frame in a crop top and underwear. She also posted a screenshot of a text conversation where she sent a recent photo of herself to a group chat. Her older sister, Rumer Willis, responded with a message of support, calling her beautiful.
Fans flooded the comments section with words of admiration and encouragement for Tallulah’s journey towards overcoming her eating disorder. They praised her for her resilience and expressed their belief in her ability to overcome challenges. Some users emphasized the importance of her honesty and vulnerability in discussing such a sensitive topic, acknowledging the support it provides to others struggling with eating disorders. They also highlighted the possibility of a fulfilling life in recovery.
Actress Sarah Paulson, known for her role in “American Horror Story,” expressed her love for Tallulah in a comment on the post. Over the years, Tallulah has been transparent about her battles with anorexia and body dysmorphia. In 2014, she disclosed that she reached a weight of 95 pounds after being influenced by tabloid media. In May, she wrote an essay for Vogue, revealing that her parents had sent her to Driftwood Recovery in Texas in June 2022 after she faced challenges with anorexia.
Tallulah shared her experience of being diagnosed with body dysmorphia at a young age, influenced by negative portrayals in tabloids. She admitted that she believed the opinions of strangers over the love and support of her family. Nine years later, following her split from fiancé Dillon Buss, her parents intervened and sent her to Driftwood Recovery once again. During her time at the facility, she received a new diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, which affects emotional regulation and relationship stability.
After spending four months in the recovery center, Tallulah left Texas feeling significantly better. She shifted her focus towards her father’s health as he battles frontotemporal dementia. She realized that her desire for harmony within her family outweighed her concerns about her body. She wanted to alleviate worry and bring joy to her loved ones.

During her stay at the facility, she was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
“I was introduced to a variety of therapies, my medication was retooled, and I was given a new diagnosis: Borderline Personality Disorder, an illness that impairs the ability to regulate emotions and find stability in relationships,” the fashion designer explained.
