Ginnifer Goodwin on Weight Watchers for 23 Years


We know Hollywood actresses work hard tomaintain their figure. But, not all of them have been struggling as much and as long as "Big Love" actress Ginnifer Goodwin.

Ginnifer reveals in the January/February 2011 issue of Health magazine that she’s been on Weight Watchers since she was 9.

“I have been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years,” she explained. “It’s the only thing on the planet that doesn’t dehydrate you or just make you miserable. I’ve never had a dramatic weight problem, it’s just that I tend to indulge, and then I need to get back on track so I can button my pants.”

Ginnifer also talks about how difficult it was to be an overweight child.

“I really did go through a period when I was very little when I remember realizing that vegetables did not come out of the ground deep-fried,” she said. “I changed my eating habits in fourth grade because I was a heavy little girl, and I was unhappy. And I remember my mom making dinner for me the first night that I was on this new program, and I burst out crying because the vegetables were green, and I thought she was trying to starve me to death.”

Now, Ginnifer admits to being a "very healthy person" and maintains her figure as best as she can. She’s inspired by fit actresses like Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Biel.

“I can be indulgent for six month[s] and put on some weight, but I still never actually get to the point of being unhappy and self-destructive,” she said. “And working with my amazing stylist, I’m really good at hiding things, so I’m always pretty confident. Except when I’m in a bathing suit. It doesn’t matter what my body looks like, I hate putting on bathing suits in front of other people.”

We think Ginnifer is brave for admitting she’s not perfect and has struggled with her weight. Who hasn’t gone through the battle of the bulge at some point in their lives?
