Nicole Scherzinger has one of the best bodies in Hollywood — but it doesn’t come easy! The former Pussycat Dolls singer admitted to Cosmopolitan Body magazine that when it comes to working out these days, it’s like “pulling teeth.”

 

"[Exercise] changes everything about how I approach my day and helps me go about life with confidence — that's the main reason I do it. It gives me clarity and makes me feel stronger,” the 36-year-old singer, who stuns on the cover in workout clothes, told the mag. "It's not so much for the physical and vanity side of it. I do it more for the emotional and mental strength it gives me.” 

That said, the fit brunette, who has been vocal in the past about battling an eating disorder, isn’t always excited to hit the gym.

"I'm like any woman, my weight fluctuates up and down. I have good days and bad days," she confessed. “For many years I worked out every single day, but now I'm in my thirties [and] it's like pulling teeth. I gotta make myself work out — you need to find that balance."

"Healthy for me means a healthy mind, that everything else becomes aligned — the mental, physical, spiritual…everything,” Lewis Hamilton's longtime girlfriend, who is currently starring as Grizabella in Cats in London, added. “Being happy means having balance, being creative and finding peace."
