Aside from eating right, the actress takes care of her body and health in general by working out. She doesn’t always find the motivation to do so but she knows for a fact that she needs to. In an interview, she revealed how she realized she needed to continue her workout regimen. “I used to go to the gym a lot. Now I hate it, but I do have to exercise,” she said.
She went on to say: “The past few years my metabolism has gone like, “Oh, I’m getting old!” And I can very easily put on weight. I mean, I binge horrendously occasionally, but I just have to make sure I go for a run the next day.” For her, it’s all about balance and listening to what her body tells her.
