‘I can’t have something if it hasn’t been made for me’: Lily Allen admits she FORGETS to eat and she can go ‘long distances without food’

Lily Allen has claimed she often forgets to eat – and struggles to eat meals that haven’t been ‘ordered and made for me’.

The 37-year-old said she loves food but that her stomach can go ‘long distances without eating’ as she gets distracted by looking after her two daughters Ethel, 11, and Marnie, ten.

She also revealed she is not a huge fan of fast food as she has an ‘anti-capitalist way of thinking of eating’.

Her comments come months after she hit back at online trolls who skinny shamed her after a TV appearance in 2021.

‘I’m actually really bad… I don’t really get hungry,’ she told the Off Menu podcast. ‘It’s when I see food I’m like ”oh yeah I should eat”.

‘I think basically my stomach goes quite long distances without eating then it has a little bit and it goes ‘yes’.

‘I love food. I love eating, but I’m just not very good at remembering to do things. I get up in the morning and I’m looking after kids and I just forget.’

She said she will avoid eating after lunch if she is performing as she doesn’t like feeling ‘heavy’ on stage and that with her new work in theatre – she starred in 2:22: A Ghost Story – it has become a ‘ritual’ to not eat beforehand and instead go out for dinner after with friends and family.

The singer-turned-actress said she cannot eat at fast food chains such as McDonald’s or Burger King or on planes because the food is pre-made.

‘I have a bit of a weird stipulation when it comes to fast food,’ she said. ‘I can’t really eat food if it hasn’t been ordered and made for me… I can’t really deal with the idea that you order something and it’s just been taken from a pile of food that has already been made.

‘It has to be some kind of intention behind it for me. I can’t eat plane food because it’s also just come from a warehouse.’

She said she can ‘veer away from this if it’s in a vacuum like a packet of crisps,’ adding: ‘This doesn’t make me sound like a very good person does it. I suppose actually it’s a sort of quite anti-capitalist way of thinking of eating. I’m not really up for food mass production and consumption of food.’

The Smile singer, who is married to Stranger Things actor David Harbour, makes a Sunday roast every week, rotating between chicken and beef with either cauliflower cheese or cheesy leeks, adding: ‘There always has to be a cheese component.’

She also enjoys a chicken tikka wrap from Harrods after a workout at a ‘fancy’ gym she uses in Knightsbridge.

In 2021, Lily was forced to defend herself against trolls who commented on her weight loss and accused her of looking ‘too thin’ after she shared a video clip from an appearance on The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan.

‘You’ve never seen me two years completely sober, not smoking and exercising every day,’ she told one critic.

In response to another she wrote: ‘Seriously, where do you get off? You know NOTHING about me or my lifestyle. How dare you.’

She previously opened up about struggling with her body image while promoting her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You and later revealed how she once became addicted to prescription drug Adderall in a bid to lose weight.

She is currently preparing for her second stage role in Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman which will premiere in the West End in June.
