17 of 44: Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes on 'Glee,' told People magazine in February 2012 that she had changed her eating and workout habits in July 2011 and dropped two dress sizes. Her 'Glee' character has struggled with her body image and battled what appeared to be a short-lived eating disorder in early episodes.

'I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier,' she told the magazine, adding that she cut out fast food and burgers. 'I've always been comfortable with my size. I just decided it was time to get healthy.'
