The 48-year-old actress stays in shape by eating healthily. “Food to me represents feeling good. I can’t stand bad food – things like sandwiches, junk food, ice cream, over-creamy stuff, and greasy, fried food,” she said. For her, living well is all about eating nutritious foods. She said: “For whatever is wrong in my life I will have a good meal and feel better. Some people need drugs and alcohol; I just need a good meal.”
Eating healthily for her is not the same as dieting, which is all about not eating in order to lose weight. But she admitted she dieted before when she started acting and didn’t like it. ” I hate dieting because I love food. Dieting is the most boring thing in the world,” she said.
