Eclipse’s Ashley Greene: “I Don’t Do the Diet Thing Anymore”

Eclipse's Ashley Greene admits that despite the pressure for actresses to be skinny, she doesn't want a pin-thin frame.

"A lot of people like to be supertiny, but I don't want a child's body," she tells the July/August issue of Women's Health. "I want a woman's body that's extremely fit. It's so much sexier."

The 23-year-old actress did "side planks for my obliques, which are one of my trouble areas" while gearing up for the action scenes (with co-star Kellan Lutz, left) in Eclipse.

"And traditional planks tone your back so you don't have that little bit of fat hanging over your bra," Greene adds.

But the 5-foot-5 star says that even though she's an avid gym-goer, she isn't one to count calories.

"I don't do the diet thing anymore," Greene admits. "I'm a big believer in feeding your body what it needs. Deny yourself something and you're going to end up shoving your face full of it."
