Farrow, 64, has adhered to a liquid diet since April 27 in an effort to bring attention to those suffering in the war-torn region of Darfur. She ended her fast Friday, Us magazine reported.
“I have been instructed by my doctor to stop my fast immediately due to health concerns—including possible seizures,” she told TV’s “Entertainment Tonight” program. “I am fortunate.”
