Lauren Graham: “I’ve been on a diet for 35 years”

From Us Magazine:

Since the age of 11, Parenthood’s Lauren Graham has been watching what she eats. “I’ve been on a diet for 35 years,” the 46-year-old TV star reveals in the May issue of More.

As the years have gone, however, Graham has learned to love her appearance.  “I’ve spent a lot of time wondering, ‘What’s going to happen?'” she says of getting older. “I try not to allow myself to do that much anymore. I think I’ve gotten more comfortable with the unknown.”

“Acting is the most bizarre profession. You can stay in it for years and not really be in it and be waiting for someone to give you an opportunity,” Graham explains. “It’s like when I watch American Idol and see people who have been told to believe in themselves at all costs: It’s not always a good idea.”

… says 46 year-old Lauren.

One of the most hated British columnists, Samantha Brick, recently said that any self-respecting woman should be on a diet all her life.

    Wow…a diet at 11 yrs.. Don’t think that’s a healthy habit for a child but she does look good.

  • Tally

    I guess this depends on what ur definition of diet is….anywho that dress in the first picture is pretty cool

  • Lulu

    I don’t think that would be considered a diet, for 35 years, that sounds like just changing your lifestyle. I love her, she has never looked too skinny, always healthy. Go Gilmore Girls!

    • Emmy

      that’s what I thought. ”Being on a diet for 35 years” sounds pretty much like she changed 35 years ago her lifestyle

  • Avelyn

    I interpret diet in the cast to mean “constantly restricting the foods she wants to eat”. obviously she’s not doing anything too severe since she’s not like giuliana-skinny.

  • Pixie

    Luv her!!! Gilmore Girls was my favorite show, I still watch the reruns. 🙂

  • HB

    Feels like everyone’s making this statement lately. But she’s cute. I found the dialogue between her and Bledel annoying on Gilmore Girls, but she’s got lovely eyes and hair and all that.

    • Andi

      THANK YOU. i watched a few episodes of gilmore girls to see what all the hype was and i could NOT get past the dialogue. it was way too flowly and cheesy for me. the way everyone always had the perfect retort, snarky comment, or witty catchphrase drove me crazy. i dont know why more people haven’t said this.

      • HB

        Exactly! I’m glad someone agrees– I felt my time would be better spent watching a ping-pong match 🙂

        • La la la la

          their conversations were like a ping pong match! the back and forth and speed of them was dizzying, and pretty unnatural. she has a nice face, i’ll always think of her as laurelei

  • amber

    I wish magazines would be more forthcoming about how things are said. Did she “reveal” this, or did she joking dismiss a question about what she eats by saying she has always been on a diet?

    • Bella

      I completely agree. If you’ve every watched an interview with her she is very sarcastic and is always making jokes, so she was probably kidding when she said this.

      I find her really attractive, she doesn’t have the perfect hollywood face but there is a certain je ne sais quoi about her. Also, tall brunettes are always smokin in my eyes haha

  • Kimmy

    They prob overexaggerated everything she said.

    Shes right though- being successful acting wise is more about opportunity than talent. When I lived in LA I was amazed at some people who became famous and others who didnt. Its the same as getting a job due to who you know rather than your qualifications in NormalWorld.

  • retrobanana

    i believe it she always looked on the bigger side. she always seemed like the type that had to fight to maintain her figure..i always considered her “curvy” compared to the other tv actresses….so i bet she has been on a constant diet…

  • Ozge

    I always liked her. Obviously because of her part on GG. Everyone compared the mother and daughter and I personnaly thought she was prettier than Alexis. Maybe not anymore since she is starting to age. By the way, I always wondered if her nose is done or not. It looks weirdly perfect but does not totally suit her face.

  • mary

    lord was she annoying on Gilmore Girls…just could never get into her. As for her quote, it reminds me of jennifer goodwin who claims to have been on weight watchers since she was 10.

  • Gsl

    She sounds insane

  • serena

    She’s right about acting – look at the nepotism in Hollywood, it’s about who you know and a lot of luck – many talented people never make it.

    By ‘dieting” she probably just means she watches what she eats and tries to stay slim and healthy.

  • binks

    Loved her Gilmore Girls! I think people use the “diet word” as a dirty word when it doesn’t have to be. A diet doesn’t always have to be extreme.

  • lexy

    I think she looks great.

  • ayu

    I know Gilmore girls were 10 years ago.. but I’d never guess she’s 46! She looks good.

  • cameron baum

    Umm… eating right/well shouldn’t be called a “diet.” It’s just eating food instead of food-like products.

    • Mew

      This exactly! It’s so annoying when they do that. Yeah, I’ve been on a diet all my life, eating just food, omg, pity me.

      It’s called healthy and sensible eating. The whole diet word has a negative thing to it and gives totally the wrong message and it affects to ppl absolutely the wrong way.

      I just wonder what her point is? That somebody comes to pity her and congratulate that she’s been soooo brave to be watching what she eats and that she has lost so much like giving up half of her life? Instead she just gave teengirls an idea that it’s better they starve for the rest of their life if they want to be human.

      The whole word “diet” should be banned.

  • Heather

    46? Wow! I love her. Gilmore girls was amazing and I love Parenthood. Sooooo good!

  • siennagold

    She looks great at 46!

  • Natalia

    Like her hair/eye combo, even if her hair is dyed & a little dried out. Her face is cute, that’s all. Body…while above average height & below average weight in US, is still not exceptional – it’s not bad, but not great. It is well proportioned and balanced. Although she is not as lean or defined as I like, I don’t think she can be, I think this is her body type – endomorph/mesomorph mix……and yes, she is embracing it. Yes, I think she presents a healthy image. Always loved her bubbly personality sooooo much too.

  • vanessa

    This women will always be so gorgeous, I first saw her on gilmore girls, and thought this woman was so naturally pretty, must be nice to walk out the door with no makeup and still be one of the prettiest women.

  • Puppe

    By this ”lifetime diet” i guess they mean eating as healthy and/or as little as possible. If is in your genes to put on weight very fast or you have slow metabolism, yeah, that`s about how you can maintain slim forever + some exercise..

    Anyway, in normal way, i would not consider watching what you eat to be a diet, more like common-sense.

  • Puppe

    *sorry for the repetition

  • jenna

    I agree Puppe – waching what you eat is not really being on a diet. I have to watch what I eat ever since I hit puberty 23 years ago, but I don’t walk around saying I’ve been dieting for 23 years.
    I prefer to watch what I eat and maintain a healthy, fit body. I choose to do it, and I’m not an actress who gets 6 or more figures a year to do it!

  • La la la la

    i think it was a joke? but yes that sounds much more like a lifestyle than diet!
