Actor Eva Mendes says posing in her underwear gives her the motivation to stay slim because she knows she must resist junk food to stay in great shape. The 37-year-old star often has to strip off for sexy photo shoots and hence staying fit is always on her top agenda, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“My job requires me to do a lot of underwear and bikini shoots. That’s what encourages me to put the chocolate-chip cookies down,” she said.
Although Mendes is very calorie conscious, but she wasn’t always like this. “I never cared about exercise or what I was eating until I got into my 20s and then I started to really get into it. I just wasn’t feeling good, so I started eating well, working out and going from drinking no water ever to up to three litres a day,” she said.
