To be a vampire vixen on True Blood, one must be in pretty good form to sport the latex dresses and skimpy attire that comes with the job. Kristin Bauer, who plays Pam on the series, recently talked to PopEater about how she stays in shape and her diet, which consists of ... very little.
"I realized as long as I'm in this business, I'm going to be hungry," Bauer recently said.
Such a healthy message for all the little vampire-wannabes out there!
"The camera really does add 10 pounds," Bauer continued. "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."
And when she does actually eat?
"I'm vegetarian, so I live on carbs," she said.
Besides dieting, she also works out in the gym, especially after trying on costumes for the show.
"After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before."
That pesky wardrobe isn't very kid-friendly either says the actress, who will be 37 in November.
"My husband and I are still getting to know each other, so adding kids right now -- especially with Pam and that wardrobe -- wouldn't work. I'd love to learn how to juggle it all. Maybe in a few years, we might move into that area."
I'm all for motivation in whatever ways you can find it -- whether it be vampy vampire attire or a pair of skinny jeans. But to hear her say she's always hungry and that her wardrobe is part of the reason she wants to put kids on hold, well, that sounds a little overboard and not so healthy to me.
