Nina Dobrev looks as lovely as ever on the cover of Self magazine’s November 2012 issue.
The “Vampire Diaries” actress has almost made a full-time job of posing for magazine covers. It’s easy to understand why. As Dobrev says, “I want to keep growing, so I make vision boards that say things like, ‘Learn. Excel. Succeed.’ Using my imagination, spelling out what I want to achieve and creating a reminder of those things helps me move forward.”
She went on to talk about her weight. “Starving to be skinny isn’t my thing. When I don’t eat, it affects my mood! On-set, I fuel up with small meals and I’m always grabbing high-protein snacks, like almonds. Chai lattes with espresso also keep me going.”
The healthy way Dobrev feels confident, she explains, “Six-pack abs? Not me. I have a flat tummy, but I’m not rock hard. If I’m going to be in a bikini, I’ll train more and skip desserts for a couple of weeks. But usually, I work out to feel good.”
