The 37-year-old actress said that she started out as a model and when she went to Italy to build her look she gained 15lb from all the pasta and cappuccinos that were part of her life over there, the Sun reported.
She saw her body change and she loved how it changed my appearance and how it made her look more womanly and sexy.
She asserted that she gives credit to her mother, who told her to feel good about her appearance and not feel embarrassed about her body, as she was never worried about looking too big or feeling fat.
