Lohan slams bulimia reports

Teen star Lindsay Lohan has slammed reports she suffered from an eating disorder, insisting she just went through a "phase".

Despite a Vanity Fair interview in which she reportedly admitted to bulimia, she now claims her problems never became serious.

Lohan claims she is eating healthier now and has even taken up cooking, most recently making a black-and-white angel food cake for hotel staff at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

She explains: "I will say that I went through a phase. I lost weight when I was in the hospital, and then I wanted to keep it off.

"Sometimes being that thin doesn't look healthy. I kind of didn't realize that."

"It was an attention thing, too. You start to wonder if your friends are your friends because you look a certain way."
