Taraji P. Henson lives on the big screen, but the DC native is just as dedicated to her acting as she is to keeping slim. But where others tweet and stress about dieting and physical fitness, Henson makes it known that, well, she’s not here for that. In fact, the actress is a self-proclaimed foodie, and proud of it.
She tells Style Bistro,
“I don’t really diet because I love food too much. My plan is to retire and become a foodie, a world traveled foodie. I’m going to travel the world and eat in all kinds of different places.”
Now that’s something we can all aspire too! (In moderation, of course.)
But the mother of one also admits that it’s important to be in shape for particular roles, and for those roles, she makes sure to hit the gym.
“I go to the Cardio Bar, it’s a franchise. They combine cardio and dance. You do everything at a ballet bar, so you do leg lifts and tendus and you have to do first position plies and you do a lot of them. It keeps you long and lean. Because I can bulk up, I don’t like lifting a lot of weights. I don’t want to ever look hard; I just want to be toned.”
It shows. Henson is solid as a rock, but still delicate as a flower. A true fitspiration!
