Tara Reid suffered from a brief bout of anorexia nervosa following her upsetting and traumatic breakup with MTV DJ Carson Daly (they had been engaged). This coincided with the filming of American Pie 2 (2001), which is why Ms. Reid appeared gaunt in several scenes (primarily those that were reshoots), as well as at the premiere of the film. Her illness ended in late 2001, when she began filming National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (2002).
Along with Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Bijou Phillips, Kimberly Stewart, Lindsay Lohan & Kimberly Kardashian, she is one of Hollywood’s most famous party girls.
