The 32-year-old actress stays in shape by taking care of her body and health in general. She does so by being cautious of what she eats. In the present, the actress maintains a vegetarian diet. As for her eating habits, she said: “My family was really poor so I grew up having to appreciate every single thing put in front of me. It was one of those things like, you finish everything that’s on your plate.” In her later life, as she became more capable of providing for herself, she started to choose what she wants to eat, hence her vegetarian lifestyle.
She said it wasn’t easy, especially totally eliminating pork from her diet. But seeing pigs in a truck surely to be delivered to a slaughterhouse while stuck in traffic, she made the decision to never eat pork. She also revealed how it was hard for her to eat more veggies. She said: “The extent of vegetables that I had was carrots smothered in butter—I had my first asparagus when I was 21. Beets can go f*ck themselves. They taste like dirt and soap.” But thanks to a certain meal-kit company, she was able to up her consumption of veggies.
