Former Nickelodeon star Jennette McCurdy says late mom 'was the person that introduced me to anorexia'

“My mom was the person that introduced me to anorexia, actually,” McCurdy, 29, shared Tuesday.

McCurdy’s mom passed away in 2013 after a 17-year battle against cancer, according to HuffPost.

“I had a lump in my breast, which was my boob developing, and I was scared that it was cancer because of my mom’s cancer. I thought, ‘Well, she got cancer, now I’ve got cancer, I’ve got breast cancer at 11. Like, I’m doomed.'”

“And I told her and she said, ‘You don’t have breast cancer, you’re just developing boobs,'” the former Nickelodeon actress continued. “I said, ‘Well, how can I not develop boobs? I don’t want those. And she said, ‘Well, there’s a thing called calorie restriction.’ Those were her exact words. She did not say the word ‘anorexia.'”
