32-year-old Zookeeper actress Rosario Dawson has been doing publicity for the film, and currently graces the cover of fitness magazine Shape in a stunning white bikini.
However, Dawson doesn't credit an intense cardio workout and steamed fish for her stunning physique. She reveals a refreshingly healthy attitude about health and fitness, and says she believes self-deprivation is worse than gorging on treats:
'Whether it craves fresh vegetables or foie gras nothing makes me feel better than having something I really enjoy... The stress you put yourself through for having a treat is probably a thousand times worse for you than the sugar you just had.'It's not all foie gras and lasagne though, says Dawson. The actress doesn't even purport to love working out- she just admits it makes her feel better:
"Leslie Bibb, my co-star in Zookeeper, got me into it. After just a couple of weeks, I noticed a physical change, especially in my posture... Now I stand differently, I sit differently. I don't love working out, but I can honestly say I miss Pilates and how it makes my body feel. And there's nothing like it when those endorphins kick in."Up next, Dawson will appear in Fire With Fire with Josh Duhamel.
