‘True Blood’ actors are ‘torturing’ themselves with diets
HollywoodNews.com: It stands to reason that vampires would be hungry on their own TV show, HBO’s “True Blood,” but the actors and actresses?
According to Kristin Bauer, who plays Eric’s sexy flunky on the show, the entire “True Blood” cast diets.
“All the women walk by craft services and keep going,” says Bauer. “I don’t even know why we walk by, we’re just torturing ourselves. Alex [Skarsgard] and Joe [Manganiello], they’re trying to add size, but we’re all working out like crazy and have diets. Skarsgard seems to be the only one that works out a lot and eats a lot and does fine.
“The other day I realized as long as I’m in this business, I’m going to be hungry,” Bauer, 36, tells Movieline,
“The camera really does add 10 pounds. I’m trying to stay under the weight I want to look like on TV. It’s a good incentive to stay slim and is probably adding years to my life… I’m vegetarian, so I live on carbs, but it’s always an effort. After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before.”
Bauer reveals that she hits the gym hard, typically after wardrobe fittings, especially that time she was required to wear a latex dress.
“I knew I would have my midriff showing,” she says. “I thought, ‘I need to get serious’ and started going to ab classes more regularly.”
