American actress Christina Ricci has now taken up a course to become an eating disorder counsellor after winning her own battle against anorexia.

Ricci, 28, who had struggled with the disorder during her teens, has now decided to help other girls with poor self-esteem.


The Addams Family star has registered for online classes for training to become a certified counsellor.

"Christina went through hell and back growing up. For years she struggled with her self-esteem, so she knows how hard it is for young girls," the Daily Telegraph quoted a source as telling US magazine Star.

"Ricci hopes to learn how she can help them get better without having to go through all the pain she did as a child," the source added.
