The singer, who herself battled an eating problem in her youth, is among the stars offering support to Olsen, who recently spent time in rehab for a reported anorexia.
She says, "I think somewhere in her experience she's gonna find out a lot about who she is and I don't think people should judge her, or judge anybody's experience, because everything happens for a reason.
"I know when I was going through the process of not eating, that's when I found out about being very, very healthy and becoming a vegan and starting to experience different things with my diet.
"I had to have an eating problem in order to get to where I am right now, physically, with my own health.
"I think that Mary-Kate will come through whatever she needs to come through."08/08/2004 10:30
