Hollywood actress Amanda Peet started her Hollywood career in the mid ’90s. Her first notable role was as Jacqueline Barrett on the TV series Jack & Jill. Afterwards, she starred as Jill St. Claire in the crime comedy movie The Whole Nine Yards. This brought her mainstream attention. She reprised her role in the sequel The Whole Ten Yards. She also became known for her roles in the films Saving Silverman, Changing Lanes, Something’s Gotta Give, A Lot Like Love, Syriana, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, and 2012. Back on television, she also became known for her role as Jordan McDeere on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. In the 2010s, she played Laura Hellinger on The Good Wife and starred as Tina Morris on Togetherness. She currently stars as Jules on Brockmire.
The actress is already in her mid 40s, but she surely looks younger than her real age. This is because Amanda follows a healthy lifestyle. How else to stay healthy but by eating nutritious food most of the time? For one, she always starts her day with a healthy breakfast. She said: “Eggs sometimes—an omelet or a scramble or a toad-in-the-hole. Or healthy pancakes. I try to mix it up, but it’s hard.” And how does she makes sure she eats healthy pancakes? They have to contain “almond flour and oats. They sound terrible, but they’re really delicious,” she said.
She also admitted that she follows a gluten-free diet, saying: “I’m really embarrassed to say this, but I’m gluten-free. Like I said, I have a Jewish stomach, and it took me 17 years to realize if I stopped eating gluten, I might have a better stomach. I’m so deeply grateful, even though I find it incredibly embarrassing to say, ‘Is that gluten-free?’” When asked if she had ever tried fad diets, she said: “There was that whole low-fat thing when I was younger. If you taste it now, anything low-fat doesn’t taste right. It tastes like chemicals.”
