Back in 2012, the celebrity became candid about her healthy lifestyle. Aside from a clean diet plan, she stays in shape by sticking to an active lifestyle. “I’d like to really focus on fitness in 2012 by mixing it up between high-energy dance classes and getting outside in nature,” said the actress.
“Nothing beats a good hike on a sunny trail. I also want to maintain a balance in my life. I’ll focus on exercising and eating right but will also remind myself that it’s okay to sleep in and have a slice of pizza every now and then,” she added.
