Beloved actress Diane Keaton scribed a new memoir, Then Again, revealing that she suffered a five-year battle with bulimia in her 20s. Keaton was a struggling actress when she was ordered to lose 10 pounds for a part in the 1968 Broadway production of Hair.

Keaton, now 65, said bulimia wasn't given much attention at the time.

"It was just this trick you could do," she said. "It's a horrible problem. Ugly and awful."
