Well, that didn't last long!
Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev was a vegetarian for a whopping 4 months before she needed, well, a Whopper.
In a recent interview appearing in the Seventeen Fitness issue, hitting stands on May 3, she explained:
"At the end of last year, I tried being a vegetarian for four months, and after awhile, I started feeling weak, like I needed more protein, more energy. Then I read a review of an episode of The Vampire Diaries online, and in it the writer mentioned that I was looking too thin. I was like, 'Okay, maybe they're right.' It made me think: I need a burger — a beef burger, not a soy burger."
Vegetarianism isn't for eveyone! Still, the actress says she has plenty of admiration for anybody who can eat that healthy, saying:
"I have so much respect for vegetarians and I'm so glad I tried it, but it just didn't work out for me."
Nina, who is naturally petite and was a competitive gymnast before becoming an actress, says she's also trying to avoid looking stick thin.
"I've realized skinny isn't necessarily attractive", she commented. "Guys like girls with curves."
That may be true, but we say focus on yourself. Don't let other's opinions decide how you should look.
For all the guys out there wondering if they have what it takes to wine and dine the lovely Nina Dobrev, she gives the skinny on what she's looking for in a guy, stating:
"I like the Chris Pines and the Ryan Goslings — those types who are fit but not too fit. I'm attracted to the low-maintenance, touseled-but-happens-to-still-look-amazing guy. I like effortless. A guy who wears track pants, a T-shirt and a hat and can still be causal. Not the 'How much can you lift?' kind of guy. That doesn't matter to me at all!"
So muscle heads OUT, low maintenance movie stars IN!
