Healthy Mary-Kate Gives Away Her Skinny Clothes

Actress Mary-Kate Olsen is celebrating beating her eating disorder by giving away clothes that no longer fit her.

After gaining almost 15 pounds, the socialite is convinced the eating disorder she battled for almost a year in 2004 is a thing of the past.

And, according to In Touch magazine, she's so happy with her new-found curves, she has decided to keep the weight on and get rid of her skinny wardrobe.

A source tells the magazine the 19-year-old recently donated thousands of dollars worth of designer clothes to the West Hollywood thrift store Out of the Closet.

The charity shop, which benefits AIDS research, is a popular choice for stars to hand over their clothes - Winona Ryder and Dame Elizabeth Taylor have been known to donate items to the store.

[edit] My intention of posting this was not to criticise or poke fun at her. I was actually glad to see it, and also glad that she's recovering. She is one of the main figures with eating disorders in the "teen" media, and it's nice to see her making moves to recover.
