Lily Allen has declared that she is worried for models who starve themselves to stay slim.

The singer, who married husband Sam Cooper last month, said that she has seen first-hand how stars take drugs to kill their appetite.

Allen told Elle: "I hang out with models, the biggest popstars and, you know, really and honestly, I hate saying this, but none of them are achieving those body shapes by being healthy. They're not just going to the gym two hours a day.

"They're not eating or they're taking speed not to eat. In America, everyone abuses that Adderall stuff and people aren't normal."

Allen, who has admitted to having an eating disorder in the past, said that she put her body under immense strain to remain skinny: "I wasn't eating then, you know. [I was] going out at night. I guess when you're not eating you have to distract yourself with other things.

"Come three o'clock it was like, 'Oh I suppose it's acceptable to have a glass of wine.' And then by four o'clock I would have had four glasses. It's not the way to be."
