Ashley Hamilton, well-known for his years abusing drugs and alcohol, has made a startling confession.
"I believe it was my problem before I got into drugs and alcohol. I used the drugs and alcohol to control the food addiction," he said. "It's really shameful as a man to have that."
"But he said 'I can't do it for you, Dude.' I said, 'That's ok. I just need somebody to give me the opportunity to trust in me sober-wise and give me a shot of this magnitude.' I'll forever owe him for that."
In addition to having a small acting role in the blockbuster flick, Ashely's band, The Wondergirls, performs a song on the soundtrack with Robbie Williams.
The 6' 3" Hamilton, said his weight bounced around between 180 and 250 lbs, only began getting treatment for his eating disorder a year ago.
"I don't have it perfect now. I've been free from bulimia for years but I still struggle with food, restricting or overeating. That's been the hardest for me in sobriety," he admitted, revealing that when he attended Beverly Hills High School, his nickname was "Fatley."
