You keep seeing her name, and it might ring a bell, but you can’t put your finger on it.
Eiza González has been making headlines lately after being spotted out and about with newly single Calvin Harris, and you may have felt like her name sounded familiar.
That’s because this isn’t the first time we’ve seen or heard of Eiza. In fact, she’s been in the media for a few years now, so let’s take some time to reminisce and get to know the Mexican singer-actress a little better.
Before Harris, the young actress was linked to Cristiano Ronaldo and Liam Hemsworth. Yes, she’s the girl who was snapped making out with Liam shortly after his breakup from Miley Cyrus a few years ago.
Despite being a stunner and a spokesperson for Neutrogena, Eiza has had her moments of self-doubt when it comes to body image. A few years back, Eiza revealed that she went under the knife to get a nose job, and last year, the former telenovela star admitted to once suffering from an eating disorder.
Posting a throwback photo on Instagram, she captioned the pic, “Mega #TB 10 years ago! My look! This was my first photo shoot ever! #FunFact every process between the ages of 15 and 20 was very hard for me because I used to eat compulsively. It took me a long time to decipher that it was all happening because I was depressed after my dad died. And it was very hard for me but I changed my eating habits and began eating healthier and I began taking care of myself in all areas.”
She continued, “It took me 5 years to get out of depression and accept my loss, and even though I had to go onstage and share happiness, I was just realizing what I was feeling at 15. I’m sharing with you that I couldn’t cry, it was hard for me to cry during the scenes in ‘Lola’ because I was in denial for a long time and I was emotionally blocked. With a lot of work I managed to make that jump and made it through. I wanted to share this because there are a lot of people that think they can bully me with this phase in my life. And I am very proud of that phase in my life because that’s when I found my peace and emotional centre”.
“The reason why I wanted to talk about this is because adolescence is not easy, not even by itself. Dealing with loss at that age is not simple (any kind of loss) but know that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and we are our biggest motor. Everything that you want to do can be done with perseverance and dedication.”
