Eddie Murphy's daughter, Bria, a model, made some startling revelations about the modeling industry this week, when she appeared on Good Morning America. In an interview that aired on Tuesday, June 11, the 23-year-old offspring of Murphy and ex-wife Nicole Murphy went on record saying she's heard of other models doing some pretty weird things to lose weight.
"I've heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice...they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton's not doing anything. It's just dissolving. And it makes you think you're full, but you're not," she said.
"Lots of girls get addicted to drugs and anorexia, it's -- there's a whole list of things, because it's a lot of pressure to be perfect," continued Bria, who models for Dark and Lovely, a hair care product line.
Despite these extreme weight loss tricks, Bria said she's not willing to sacrifice her health just to achieve the perfect slim body magazines covet.
Her dream is to one day be a model for Victoria's Secret.
There's no doubt she can do it -- but she is still a little hesitant about the ruthless world of modeling.
"It's your job to go into a room...and some people will just say no without an explanation, and some will be like, 'Oh, your nose is too big. Your butt's too big. Oh, your legs are flabby.' Like, they'll just go on you, 'Oh, you need to tighten that up,' " she said.
After the interview aired, Bria was spotted taking some sexy bikini shots on the beaches of Hawaii.
She later took to Twitter to slam her critics.
"Why do we always have to put each other down? #dobetter #bepositive," she wrote.
