On her workout routine:
“I do yoga, a little bit of Pilates and obviously running on an incline is great. So I try to go back and fourth between all those things.”

On when she took up running:
“My mom was a runner. I enjoy running, but she was a runner. She loved it and was able to go miles and miles and miles, you know, was crazy about it. The first I did a big run was the Rock “n” Roll Half Marathon Los Angeles [in 2010]. It was a blast – I absolutely loved it. What you put your body through is incredible, how sore you are the next day is quite crazy. But the benefits of it, cardiovascular-wise, body-wise, toning-wise, all of that, there”s nothing really that gets you in shape like [a race].”

On the constant criticism of her curves:
“I do find that as a curvy girl, as I guess I”ve sort of been deemed, I don”t think you want to run your curves off, because then you”re just not yourself. But it definitely helps your butt, that”s for sure. It helps with the badonk-a-donk!”

On the pressures of her body:
“I”m an actress, I live in L.A., I work in Hollywood. But I”ve learned that if you”re too skinny, they”ll say something about it. If you”re not skinny enough, they”ll say something about it. I just try to feel good in my own skin as much as I can.”
