Tough Cookie’s Fit Tips

True Blood actress New Zealander Anna Paquin reveals her exercise regime secrets — and about the pressures to stay thin in Hollywood — in the June issue of American magazine Health. “I’ve always been a tough cookie. I just didn’t do it in short shorts and a blonde ponytail. I mean, if you’re going to be spending literally every single day of your working life wearing clothes that barely cover your body, you’re gonna be extra-diligent. There’s also a really big difference between looking healthy and being healthy. People in this town have a weird tendency to say, if someone’s lost weight, ‘Oh my God, you look amazing.’ And you’re like, ‘I just had my tonsils out and didn’t eat for three weeks.’” The fourth season of hit HBO show True Blood debuts in the US this month. Paquin plays telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse.
