The beautiful Anna Paquin (who won an Academy Award at the tender age of 11) graces the cover of June’s Health magazine.
On the difference between looking healthy and being healthy:
“People in this town have a weird tendency to say, if someone’s lost weight, ‘Oh my God, you look amazing.’ And you’re like, ‘I just had my tonsils out and didn’t eat for three weeks,’…But it’s not healthy.”
On how playing Sookie motivates her to work out:
“If you’re going to be spending literally every single day of your working life wearing clothes that barely cover your body, you’re gonna be extra-diligent…There’s just a little extra motivation of, ‘Hmmm, teeny white shorts and a bikini top? I think I will go to Pilates this morning.’”
On how she handled Hollywood at such a young age:
“I have a really, really, really normal family. And by normal I mean we’re all nuts on some level. I think you’ve gotta be a little nuts to pursue any kind of creative job. I was also a really good kid…I didn’t rebel in the traditional sense.”
