“Sex and The City” star Kristin Davis says she now chooses cuisine over couture.

“I have hips! I’m never going to be the thinnest actress, and I don’t want to be. When you’re at peace with yourself and your body, you’re automatically more confident,” the 45-year-old big screen beauty told Fitness magazine in its May issue.

The actress said she watches what she puts in her body, but doesn’t shy away from indulging her sweet tooth.

“I eat a lot of chicken, salmon, eggs and side salads. But if all I ate were salads every day, I’d shoot myself. Who cares if you can fit in your skinny jeans if you can’t enjoy life and have something good to eat? I went through periods when I said I can’t have this, I can’t have that. Now I don’t deprive myself. Food is meant to be enjoyed!” she told the mag.

Kristin revealed that she has a hard time staying way from one particular treat.

“Chocolate! I especially love M&M’s. These days, if I want some, I eat them,” she said. “When it’s hot in the summer, I have to have my ice cream. One trick I’ve learned is that if I have an ice cream bar, I’m OK having four bites and then throwing it away. I don’t need to eat the whole thing to feel satisfied.”

She told the mag she’s able to keep in shape with a variety of activities including hiking, yoga, Pilates and cardio.

“I can’t just hop on the treadmill,” she explained. “I need to mix things up and enjoy what I’m doing.”

Kristin is back on the big screen as Charlotte in “Sex and The City 2,” in theaters on May 28
