I love this body. And it took a long time to get to a place where I could say that and mean it. I've been an actor since I was 14 and part of my job is to be fit and healthy. But you know, 14 is a pretty impressionable age and I went through some periods where I really felt the pressure to be thin and didn't like my body very much. Then at some point (I think that this just comes with age) I decided that I would treat my body with love and compassion and really enjoy taking care of it. That's where I'm at now and it's the happiest I've been, so I think maybe I'm onto something.
