On what it means to be famous as a woman:
“Kimberly [Kardashian West] says, ‘If you do go out, you’ve got to rock it, baby!’ You cannot let [the paparazzi] get that picture. They’ll take a picture of you with no makeup on, lousy outfit – and they’ll use it forever. You’ll never get rid of it. Kim’s very good at that stuff. It does take a little bit more work if you do go out. You’ve got to at least look good, at least the best you can. But there’s more to life and womanhood than just that. And those are things I’m learning; I’m trying to read up on it. I’m trying to understand it because it’s all new to me.”

On being told she was too fat:
“I was just told I was too fat for a part. I’m a size 2! I cried for 30 minutes, but then you have to let it roll off your shoulders or it could cause a serious eating disorder. A lot of people in this industry hear they need to lose weight more times than they should. It does make you stronger, though. Because if you let that affect you, you can’t be in this industry—you’d go crazy.”
On how she hates being Photoshopped:
“I saw photos from a shoot of myself just the other day and thought, What the hell? That doesn’t even look like me! I was so disappointed. I hate to think that girls are like, ‘She’s so skinny! Her skin is so perfect!’ I have pimples just like they do.”

On not wanting to be a bony girl:
I was very skinny as a kid, but when I was swimming and playing field hockey and just having fun, I never worried about how I looked. In my teens, though, I started to be more aware of my body, and I didn’t like being skinny. People made fun of me for it. So when I got to college, I ate a lot of junk and gained weight. I loved it because I didn’t stand out as a bony girl anymore!

On the importance of exercise:
“When I don’t exercise in the morning, it’s a completely different day than when I do. Working out gives me endorphins and makes me happy.”
On her troubled eating habits in the past:
“Eating became a way of not getting attention for looking skinny, but it was also self-sabotage. In the last few years, I’ve gotten back on track with exercising for fun and eating right, and now I’m in a happy place with myself.”
… says 33 year-old Walking Dead actress Lauren.

On the fact that she is successful because she hates working out:
If I had to think about finding something in the gym that doesn’t make me wish I was dead in the moment, I really love body-weight training and being very creative with my physicality. Whether it’s free running, or any type of calisthenics exercise, that peaks my curiosity…. The interesting thing about me is that I…people always ask ‘Why YOU? Why are you so successful?’ and they would always find so much fault with any aspect of my fitness pedigree or my physique and yet ask why have I been so successful in the field of fitness? And I think there are a host of reasons—from authenticity, passion, etc. But another reason I think that I’m so relatable is because I hate to workout. So when you ask me, ‘What do love about the gym? What do you hate about it?’ what I love is that I feel empowered. What I love is I feel comfortable in my own skin, let alone my own skinny jeans, and that’s a big deal for me. Fitness is transcendent. When you feel strong physically, you feel strong in every other facet of your life…
