Lauren Graham recently revealed she struggles with dieting and said she has been on one for 35 years.
The Parenthood actress said she said she has to watch what she eats, and has been doing so since she was just 11 years old.
She also talked about more personal stuff in the May issue of More.
Graham said acting is a "bizarre profession," that left her always worrying what would happen next. But now, she is trying to now allow herself to be anxious about the future.
"I think I've gotten more comfortable with the unknown," she said.
"Acting is the most bizarre profession. You can stay in it for years and not really be in it and be waiting for someone to give you an opportunity. It's like when I watch American Idol and see people who have been told to believe in themselves at all costs: it's not always a good idea," she said.
She credits Diane Keaton with inspiring her to start writing.
"If she had told me to consider a career in banking, I would have done that," she said. "I wanted to write about the tiny, tiny progress and the complete unknown of wanting to follow any impossible dream."
