Debra Messing Opens Up About Going From A Size 8 To A 2 And Being “Way Too Skinny” While She Was On Will & Grace

We all love Debra Messing for her time spent as Grace Adler on Will & Grace. It’s hard to imagine that behind the scenes of the show and while she was at the top of her career, Debra was seriously struggling with her weight in an unhealthy way.

Recently, Debra appeared on Jameela Jamil’s podcast called I Weigh, where she opened up about being “way too skinny” while she was on the popular TV show.

Debra started out as a size 8 when she first went on Will & Grace, but then she quickly went down to a size 2.

She said to Jameela, “When I started Will & Grace, I was a size 8. And what happened was, every time I would go in for a fitting, I couldn’t fit into clothes.”

“You know, 80 percent of it I couldn’t fit into, and I would leave just hating my body and hating myself.”
