Already in her 60s, the actress shines thanks to her youthful glow. She credits her healthy lifestyle to her feeling great from the inside out. In an interview, she said how she doesn’t believe in fad diets and how they’re unhealthy.
“Dieting isn’t healthy. I know that’s easy for me to say that because I just don’t put on weight, but even if I were bigger, I wouldn’t diet madly,” the actress said. She does, however, follows a diet plan called The Zone, which means that her diet consists of 40% carbs, 30% protein, and 30% fat.
