The Emily In Paris star, 31, detailed how she’s been in therapy for years and now feels like she’s coming to terms with why she let ‘darker thoughts dictate’ her life. 

She also discussed struggling with imposter syndrome at times, but being pleased to now have found her voice, in a candid interview with new podcast Make It Reign.  

Speaking with host Josh Smith about her eating disorder, Lily explained how she’s now started to understand what happened and admitted that she used to have ‘a lot of voices in my head all the time that silenced my outward voice’.

She said: ‘I’ve done therapy for years and I feel like I am getting to the route of why I allowed those darker thoughts to dictate how I lived my life, what I did or didn’t eat and the restrictions I put on myself.

‘Understanding that, coming to terms with that and I have realised that so many of those reasons that I used when I was younger just don’t apply to me anymore.’

She continued that she now makes the ‘things that make me happiest in life’ a priority – with that being spending time with loved ones and cultivating relationships.

Lily added: ‘And a lot of those times happen over an amazing meal and things that I feel that I missed out on because I allowed my insecurities or my lack of speaking about them to dictate how I lived my life. 

‘I had a lot of voices in my head all the time that silenced my outward voice, a lot of internal ones that stilted me.’    

Now better managing to understand her past struggles, although saying this is a constant process, Lily credited her relationship with fiancé Charlie McDowell with allowing her to feel ‘the best version’ of herself.

She said: ‘I’ve just been empowered through friendships and people who I love, who encourage me to just let go – and the relationship that I’m in – where you really just feel the best version of yourself when your mind and heart are working at its biggest capacity. 

‘If you’re hungry in any way, physically or emotionally hungry, you’re never going to be functioning 100 per cent. 

‘You’re never going to be feeling like the best version of yourself and then you’re not living the life that you should be and the best life that you can.’ 

Lily also chatted about imposter syndrome, telling Josh: ‘There were moments growing up and within the recent past that I felt like I almost didn’t deserve my crown… I still have this imposter syndrome where I’m like, “wait, do I have the crown? Is it there? It feels heavy.”

‘I’ve learned that I have worked really hard and I didn’t work hard to get a crown, that wasn’t my goal. 

‘I didn’t want to have a glittery thing at the end of the day, I wanted to feel like I gained a voice and with that voice I’ve come to realise that I can deserve my crown more and more.’ 

Lily has often been outspoken about her eating disorder, speaking about it at length in her book Unfiltered and playing an anorexia patient in movie To The Bone. 

The beauty and her beau announced their engagement in September and are currently working on a film called Gilded Rage.

Charlie is set to direct, while his bride-to-be will star in the movie which follows the investigation of the murder of an investment banker. 

Other stars set to feature in the new podcast include Bridgerton and Derry Girls actress Nicola Coughlan and Sex Education star Aimee Lou Wood.

Outerbanks’ Madelyn Cline and World Champion Heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson are also on the impressive lineup.
