Highlight Story

Dolly Parton is familiar with what goes behind the scenes to get a fit looking body but the country singer is far from being obsessed.

The Grammy-Award winner said at the Broadway opening of 9 to 5: The Musical in NYC that there was not much to debate about on health issues.

"I'm up and I'm down, but I don't have any tips for anybody. It's a bitch any way you look at it. You either starve or you get fat,” Us magazine quoted her as saying.

The 63-year-old also revealed her own routine included just "a tiny little bit of squats and sit-ups" but she does not ignore the scale completely.

She added: "I'm very short, so I just have to watch my weight because I have a big appetite.”

And the actress-philanthropist further revealed alternatives to dieting, saying: "You need a good push-up bra -- and wear clothes that make you look good.”
