Melbourne, Sept 1 (ANI): After revealing her own battle with anorexia, American actress Christina Ricci has now taken up a course to become an eating disorder counsellor.

Ricci, 28, who had struggled with the disorder during her teens, has now decided to help other girls with poor self-esteem.

The Addams Family star has registered for online classes for training to become a certified counsellor.

Christina went through hell and back growing up. For years she struggled with her self-esteem, so she knows how hard it is for young girls, the Daily Telegraph quoted a source as telling US magazine Star.

Ricci hopes to learn how she can help them get better without having to go through all the pain she did as a child, the source added. (ANI)
