On working out 6 days a week for her new role in “X-Men: Apocalypse”:

“It was all outside, around London, which was more fun than being cooped up in a gym. I need to do fun stuff that takes my mind off the fact that I’m working out. Exercise has made me feel more positive about my body, less self-conscious. I don’t know if I look any different, but I feel stronger, and I can do more, which is such a good feeling. It’s so liberating. Also, I’ve really embraced healthy eating. It makes you feel a lot better and more energetic. I’m inspired to get up and out.”

… says 20 the year-old Game of Thrones actress.

Kate Hudson: “I can’t be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I love it”

On why she loves her shape:

“I love my shape because I work really hard at it. I honor my body by working out and seeing what it can do.”

On finding the workout her body craves:

“Some people need structure and a regimen, but I’m not a planner. When I exercise, I need to connect to myself and see how I’m feeling at the moment, because my mood is constantly changing.”

On her body breakthrough:

“I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I’m still doing it. It’s the workout my body really responds to. It’s all about alignment, elongating your spine, and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest.”

On finding balance in her diet and eating bratwurst:

“Enjoying good food is a huge part of being healthy and happy. When I was growing up, everybody came to our place for dinner on Sundays. It was a joyful house. Food was very important; there was always something good cooking. Mom went to India a lot in the seventies, so she made curries and dal. She cooks Southern food too—her dad was from Arkansas. She makes a mean biscuits and gravy and chicken and dumplings. My mom has always been healthy, but she’s not a health nut. I’m the same way. I absolutely believe in enjoying my food, especially when I travel. I don’t eat a lot of meat when I’m home, but I can’t be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I just love it so much.”
