“The Twilight Saga’s” Ashley Greene says she’s still able to indulge in some of her favorite foods even though she’s battling evil vampires on the big screen and rocking a bikini on the cover of Women’s Health July/August cover.
“My body holds muscle really easily, and I tend to bulk up [if I’m always lifting] weights,” the 23-year-old actress told the mag, saying she focused on cardio, squats, and planks during her daily hour-long workouts while filming.
She even revealed that she too suffers from a few problem areas, just like everyone else.
“I did side planks for my obliques, which are one of my trouble areas,” she explained. “And traditional planks tone your back so you don’t have that little bit of fat hanging over your bra. Ugh!”
During an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Monday, Ashley told Jay she tried not to worry about appearing on the cover – on which she sports a two-piece bathing suit.
“I can’t think about it that way,” she told Jay. “I’d end up killing myself. If I set boundaries for myself, I always break them. It has to be in moderation or I’ll just end up shoving pizza down my throat… which ironically, I ended up doing anyways.”
Ashley will reprise her role as Alice Cullen in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which opens in theaters on June 30.
