May 31,2016 (Toronto, ON) – In support of World Eating Disorders Action Day on June 2, Keanu Reeves and other cast members of an upcoming feature film about anorexia will appear in a public service announcement (PSA) that dispels myths about eating disorders.

The 90-second spot features Reeves and other actors from the soon-to-be-released drama, To The Bone, reciting the nine truths of eating disorders, including the fact that eating disorders are serious, biologically influenced illnesses — not personal choices.
