A: Thank you. But I am wearing some!
A: I dont really. With ballet, unless youre doing it all the time, its too challenging on your body. I do Cardio Barre, which uses some dance techniques.
A: Yoga, Pilates, and running. I mix it up so I dont get bored. I exercise at least five days a week. I love exercising. Its what my body and mind are used to.
A: I did the Atkins thing about seven years ago, and it didnt make me feel good at all. And if you look at it, that much fat and meat is just wrong.
A: What a nightmare.
A: Thank you, thats very nice. I was on holiday with friends, on an empty beach, and I had just gotten off the plane. I was bloated and PMS-ing, and I hadnt exercised in months because my foot was injured. Some of the press was shockingly mean. There were comments like, "Shes no longer a Wild Thing." It was horrible! The annoying thing to me is that Im in great shape, and Im strong, and I take care of myself. I might have been five pounds heavier in that photo than what people expect. But Im a human being, Im on holiday, leave me alone! [Laughs.]
A: When I did Party of Five, there was a stage I went through where I gained weight. I had stopped dancing eight hours a day, and suddenly I was working 15 hours a day and sitting in a trailer. And there were mean comments in the press about my weight. Being on camera, theres definitely a standard that is expected. But Ive never been one to
A: Unfortunately, we women put the pressure on ourselves. Lets look toward the environment and charity, [and] have less of a focus on our appearance. When those pictures of me in Hawaii were all over the news, I was like, Whats going on in Afghanistan, and why are we not talking about those things? Are we really going to waste time talking about my black bikini? Its ridiculous. I remember watching CNN once, and on the bottom ticker it said something like, "Beyonce no longer wants to be called Bootylicious."
A: Yeah. That [treatment of her] was absolutely ridiculous. She is a stunning, beautiful, voluptuous, confident, talented young woman.
A: Jennifer and I didnt stay in contact. But I talk to Lacey [Chabert] and Scott [Wolf]. Matthew [Fox] and I had been out of touch, but I ran into him at the Golden Globes, and we got back in touch.
A: I watched a few episodes, and I kept thinking, Why is Charlie on an island?
A: Was he on that? Oh no! Hes such a sweetheart. I love Jeremy. Hes such a good guy. He obviously had a few issues. Im sorry to hear that.
A: To be a ballet dancer takes such discipline. I took it very seriously. You cant do drugs. Its just not an option.
A: We fell in love with each other! [Laughs.] Shes one of the coolest women Ive ever met.
A: Trying to do good in the world. Ive been working with this orphanage in South Africa called Botshabelo [botshabelo.org], which is so inspiring.
A: I have, and I will at some point. Ive always wanted to do that.
A: Im less worried [now] about what other people think. What a relief! I saw a therapist once, and one thing she said to me was, "Neve, put yourself in a state where you lose all your money, and nobody cares what youre doing. Are you OK?" And I said, "Im absolutely OK. Because I still have me."
