Sara Ramirez Reveals Struggle With Body Issues, Depression
On “Grey’s Anatomy,” Sara Ramirez’s character, Callie Torres, is going through a lot – she’s having Mark Sloan’s (Dr. McSteamy’s, Eric Dane) baby, and is working on rekindling her romance with Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw), and now, the sexy actress is opening up about how her real life is nearly as dramatic.
In the March 2011 issue of Latina magazine, the voluptuous brunette revealed she’s struggled with body issues.
“There’s a whole list of things you could worry about. Are you skinny enough? Talented enough? In all kinds of ways, I used to be really, really hard on myself,” she told the mag.
Sara also revealed that she struggles with depression, telling the mag that at one, dark time, the actress had a difficult time getting out of bed and going to the set of her hit ABC show.
“Somehow I managed to do it, but it wasn’t pretty,” she said of her one-time attitude on set.
The open and honest actress posed in her underwear for the mag, showing off her curvy shape. She said that she’s proud to be different in Hollywood.
“I’ve never been very cookie cutter. If I choose something different from the status quo, it’s my responsibility and my choice to live my life that way,” she said.
