Being a talented actress, Jennifer has controlled how her body would appear for certain film roles like in Requiem for a Dream and the 2014 movie Noah. Though as part of her regular eating habits, the actress is mostly into veggies and fruits. To make it more balanced, she accompanies her vegetable and fruit diet with other nutritious foods that are rich in proteins and healthy fats. Interestingly, before giving birth to her first child in 1997, Jennifer actually practiced a vegan diet. This changed after getting pregnant as she often craved for turkey burger, so she gave in to what her body wanted and she has since gone back to her normal diet. She’s also fond of red wine.
