Actress Ginnifer Goodwin, 32, has been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years. Yes, thatÂ’s right. Since she was nine years old! Weight Watchers is her life-long secret for holding down a body weight that tends to get out of hand. The Shakespearean actress turned film and TV star shared her covert actions with Comcast.netÂ’s E-news on-line. Ginnifer Goodwin has no particular health and body problems, but Â“I tend to indulge,Â” she told Comcast. IsnÂ’t that just the way, this time of year? Perhaps it helps that sheÂ’s a vegan. She also shared the story with the world, from the cover of the current Health magazine, on sale now.
Just sound eating practices arenÂ’t enough, of course. Ginnifer adds ballet and speed walking into the mix. It all seems to function well for her. Certainly, none of these star-studded diet recommendations appearing everywhere right now are new, but that doesnÂ’t matter. ItÂ’s all in the application, folks. Or would that be, garbage in, garbage on?
Ginnifer Goodwin, who is from Tennessee and changed the spelling of her own name to reflect down-home dialect, studied Shakespearean acting at Boston College and other places, and referred to herself as something of a Shakespeare nerd. But it was a guest role on Â“Law and OrderÂ” that brought television into her career life, and she has run with it. SheÂ’s appeared in Â“Mona Lisa SmileÂ” and Â“Walk the LineÂ” and she appears in HBOÂ’s Â“Big LoveÂ”. Goodwin was Gigi in last yearÂ’s Â“HeÂ’s Just Not That Into YouÂ” and even plays Aunt Bea in the kid-flick Â“Ramona and BeezusÂ”.
Meanwhile, sheÂ’ll hang out at those WW meetings. Whatever works!
