Her history of disordered eating and her experience with body dysmorphia as a result of her time as a model inspired Jamil to become an advocate for the body neutrality movement, which posits that a person' s value is completely separate from how they look.

Jameela Jamil has opened up about how a “very intense” car accident had a roundabout way of saving her life . The Good Place actress, 33, was 17 at the time and embroiled in the modeling industry she now speaks out against for promoting a life of disordered eating habits from a young age. Jamil said that as a teenager in the business, she was instructed by agents and other models to smoke and engage in unhealthy practices to maintain an unrealistic physique.

The car accident, she said, gave her some perspective.

"I got hit by one car into another car and basically destroyed my back. I was in bed for about a year and in a wheelchair for about six months after that," she said. "At that point, I had gained about 70 lbs on steroids, so I was 'too big' for modeling. I also developed a sense of purpose to protect my body after that and stop starving myself."

It wasn't an easy fix, but she got over the hump.

"I still had an eating disorder mentality," she recalled, "but I stopped actively starving myself once I got better because I realized that my body was fragile and I was taking it for granted."

For Jameela Jamil , a life -threatening event was a life - saving one, too. Last month, the Good Place actress made headlines after sparring with model Sara Sampaio on Twitter over the industry they both have been a part of. At the time of the back-and-forth, the two could not see eye to eye, with Jamil arguing that the industry perpetuates unrealistic standards of beauty and causes young models to use dangerous tactics to control their weight and fit sample sizes while Sampaio maintained that the star was attacking and offending models and generalizing about their behavior.

Jameela Jamil has criticised claims she has Munchausen’ s syndrome, following a series of viral Instagram posts that suggested she has been lying about past injuries and illnesses. Earlier this week, an Instagram Story highlight from a user went viral on social media with slides thatt featured past quotes from Jamil alongside captions that claimed the accounts contradicted one another. Among the incidents pointed out were a car accident Jamil said she experienced after being chased by a bee, which was later referred to as a “swarm of bees” in a separate interview.

She added that the whole experiences was "very intense, but it saved my life."
