We love her as Charlotte in Sex and the City. Who knew that in real life Kristin Davis has been hiding killer abs underneath those sweet designer dresses? Here, she shares the workout that keeps her slim and super motivated.

Kristin's Bikini-Body Routine

Kristin Davis is proud of her curves. "I have hips!" she says. "I'm never going to be the thinnest actress, and I don't want to be. When you're at peace with yourself and your body, you're automatically more confident." To stay in shape, she alternates between hiking, yoga, Pilates, and cardio, depending on her mood. "I can't just hop on the treadmill," admits Kristin, 45, who reprises her role as Charlotte in Sex and the City 2, which opens in theaters on May 28. "I need to mix things up and enjoy what I'm doing."

Here, she reveals how she stays in shape.

What was it like to pose in a bikini for our cover?

I'm not going to lie. It was very intimidating. There are people who feel comfortable in bathing suits, and I don't know how they do it. I worked with Kristen Bell and Malin Akerman on the movie Couples Retreat, and they didn't care about standing around in their bikinis for days. The guys in the movie were more self-conscious than they were!

Did you step up your workout to get ready?

Sarah Jessica Parker introduced me to trainer Tracy Anderson's gym in New York City, which is great for me because they change the workouts every 10 days. My favorite is using the stretchy elastic bands. They strengthen and tighten all parts of your arms without bulking you up. They also work on your core and posture. You end up feeling really strong.

What do you do when you can't make it to the gym?

At home I do the elliptical for 30 to 45 minutes, lots of planks for stability, and yoga and Pilates for my core. When I'm traveling, I do jumping jacks with resistance bands and a leg workout where all you need is a chair.

Really? tasteless because she throws away half of an ice cream bar? What do you want her to do? pack it up and ship it off? They asked her about indulging - we all do it- get off her.

I thought this article was so ridiculous. I'm so tired of hearing these people brag about how they starve and deprive themselves, and it gets passed off as healthy. Wake up people - it's not healthy or normal. It's called a problem.
