Invariably, there comes a moment in a typical celebrity profile where you're confronted by a rush of words to describe the subject. Maybe they're wearing a "burnt-orange summer dress" with their "long hair pulled back into a ponytail".
Perhaps they have "cherubic lips" and "doe-shaped green or amber eyes, depending on the light". And naturally, they're not wearing a stich of make-up but have "flawless skin". This is not one of those stories. That's not to say that year-old former Disney star Debby Ryan isn't all those things as she sits across from me at her favourite local eatery in LA's San Fernando Valley.
But Debby, who stars in the Netflix comedy series Insatiable , has just told me, with so much humility and courage, about her own inability to describe herself that it feels almost disrespectful to do it for her. Body dysmorphic disorder is described by the Mayo Clinic as "a mental disorder in which you can't stop thinking about one or more perceived defects or flaws in your appearance — a flaw that, to others, is either minor or not observable".
Debby sighs. And I have never had a day, not one day," her voice catches, "where I looked in the mirror and thought, 'Cool. In the episode satire Insatiable , Ryan plays a high school student who has been cruelly labelled "Fatty Patty" by her tormentors. But when she finds herself in an altercation with a homeless man who punches her in the face, Patty's subsequent broken jaw is wired shut for three months and in drastic weight loss. Suddenly she's considered "hot" and embraces beauty ants and revenge.
The irony isn't lost on Debby that, despite her own struggles, since the trailer for the series was released last month, over , people have ed a petition calling on Netflix to cancel the show for "body-shaming". The social-media influencer — she has a staggering 8. She revealed: "Twelve years into my own struggles with body image, struggles that took me in and out of terrible places I never want to go again and things I choose every day to leave behind, I was drawn to this show's willingness to go to real places about how difficult and scary it can be to move through the world in a body, whether you're being praised or criticised for its size.
When Debby arrives at the cheery cafe she has chosen for our interview, she ignores my outstretched hand and instead pulls me in for a hug. Her openness and enthusiasm are endearing, especially as she's likely to have endured a rough couple of days since the petition surfaced. The redemption is in identifying the bullies and saying, 'This is not okay. Debby enthuses about her huge affection for Australia and says she's a frequent visitor.
The couple have been so under the radar that Debby declines to provide specifics of the length of their on-again, off-again relationship. That includes Josh returning the favour by accompanying her to offer support. Deborah Ann Ryan was born in Huntsville, Alabama, but spent most of her childhood in Europe with her older brother Chase, her mother Sandy, a schoolteacher, and her father Chris, who worked closely with the US military.
Ryan performed in theatre productions on the military base and later at her Keller school, but quickly realised she wanted more. Her first professional job, booked on her 13th birthday, was the production Barney: Let's Go to the Firehouse , in nearby Dallas-Fort Worth. In , she co-produced and starred in her own Disney series, Jessie , and when it ended in , she and her band, the Never Ending, opened for Fifth Harmony, discovered through the US version of The X Factor on a world tour. As a key member of that first wave of young actors who became famous thanks to Disney shows — including Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana , Selena Gomez in Wizards of Waverly Place and Demi Lovato in Sonny with a Chance — Debby understands why people would be curious about her reaction to Demi's apparent overdose.
We need to just give grace to the people around us and remember nobody owes us their secrets. Debby's social networks are a mix of fun personal photos including a birthday wish and flashback photo of her and Josh posted two months ago , promotion for Insatiable , and carefully curated mentions of deers such as Max Mara, Diane Von Furstenberg and shoe guru Stuart Weitzman.
After I compliment her on the espadrille sandals she's wearing, she finds me on Twitter the following day and DMs a link to the brand, Chloe Gosselin. But social media hasn't always been her friend. Debby admits she was devastated four years ago when she was viciously trolled after gaining weight. It enraged me so much. She still remembers some of the incidents. You look great! There were also fashion deers who were commenting on my Instagram photos — 'Love you babe' — but I knew that they had not allowed my stylist to borrow a dress for me.
Despite this, her Patty's desire for revenge is one aspect of her Insatiable character Debby can't embrace. Now I'm on a billboard looking down on you! The redemption for me is that this whole struggle can now live outside of me on the show, and is no longer hidden. Debby Ryan: The critics are mistaken over Insatiable's 'body-shaming'.
