Podcast 39 – Jeff Meacham

acting - eating disorders - podcast


My 39th guest on The Actor’s Diet Podcast is someone I’ve known for a long time – Christy’s husband, Jeff!  He currently has two recurring roles on TV – one on The Thundermans and one on Black-ish


…we also tackle the serious subject of eating disorders.  So grateful to Jeff for sharing his story.  Reach out/follow him on twitter, or check him out on The Open Sky Fitness Podcast, which he co-hosts.

A Decade Later

acting - eating disorders - life

I think back to who these women were in this photo, 10 years ago.  This was the world premiere of Saving Face, at the Toronto Film Festival.

  • I was full of joy – it was my first movie, the audience response was tremendous, and on Opening Night Sony Pictures Classics announced they would be distributing the film and bringing us to Sundance.
  • I was full of excitement – I completely lost my voice during day 2 of the press junkets – Abe wandered around the streets of Canadian Chinatown trying to find the “magic herbs” my Mom told him he needed to buy me.
  • I was full of fear – my binge eating was at its worst.  I didn’t care that I felt sick during Q&A’s and had a long flight home.  I was too afraid to feel any of the above.

Well, a decade later, and I’m not the same person.  But in a lot of ways I am.  The ups and downs haven’t disappeared, but the ability to experience it has.

P.S. Joan Chen started a food blog!


Chee and T

acting - beauty - salads - sandwich

This is my 4th time working with Tanuj – an honor to kick off his latest feature, Chee and T!


He reassembled a lot of the old crew – it’s always fun to work with Pavy


…who had some extra tricks in his makeup bag for me…


…and Romy, who crafted another cool look that I would never think of.

Lunch was from French Market Cafe in Venice – sandwiches…


…salads, and quiche.


I have a teeny tiny part and am now done, but the rest of the movie still has to be made!  Follow along on Twitter/Instagram with #CheeandT to watch the action as it unfolds.
