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.

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.”

On what she does to stay in shape:
“If I’m in L.A. and have time, I love going to the gym and I work with different trainers, so it’s something I’ve just picked up. But a lot of the time I’m on location or living out of a suitcase, so I don’t have time to go the gym. So basically all I do is sit-ups, push-ups, and jumping jacks (or star-jumps as you call them!), lunges and the plank, and you repeat it five times.”

On being rejected at the beginning of her career at castings for not being skinny enough:
I was so used to people criticizing me for being too thin that it was shocking to me.
On wanting to join Victoria’s Secret:
My agent said: “They want to see you. If you get the show, will you move to New York?”‘ she recalled. ‘I said: “If I got Victoria’s Secret, I’d do anything.”
On her workouts:
I’m an athlete. I use every single muscle, especially my core and arms, when I pose. It’s so important for me to feel strong. When I have a show or a specific shoot coming up, I train for it full on, like an athlete would train for a game. It used to be that if you had a swim shoot, you’d go away for two weeks and spend the first four days getting a suntan. Now we work 12 hours a day, every day, and I can be on a plane every two days.
