It wouldn’t take an expert to know that plenty of Hollywood actors pay strict attention to their physiques, regardless of how many "trust me, I eat Doritos all the time” quotes get printed.
But “True Blood’s” Kristin Bauer, who plays Pam on the series, isn’t one to sugarcoat reality.
“The other day I realized as long as I'm in this business, I'm going to be hungry,” she told PopEater. “The camera really does add 10 pounds. I'm trying to stay under the weight I want to look like on TV.”
Bauer, 36, added, “It's a good incentive to stay slim, and is probably adding years to my life."
She's not the only one. "True Blood's" Alexander Skarsgard is also known for hitting the gym if there's a lull in the day, and Joe Manganiello is no stranger to working out hard, either.
“I’m vegetarian, so I live on carbs, but it’s always an effort,” Bauer said. “After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before.”
A certain amount of fat is essential to bodily functions. Fat regulates body temperature, cushions and insulates organs and tissues and is the main form of the body's energy storage. ;':"

Holy smokes, I can't believe how many people commented on this within a mere day or 2! Who really cares?! I love Kristin Bauer – I think she's gorgeous!! I doubt she was born in '73, but she looks amazing, regardless! According to other reports, she'll be turning 45 next month and I wouldn't have guessed THAT either.
Firstly, being over size two does not make you fat. Your BMI, or as mentioned previously, your body fat percentage, determine if you are fat. Most Hollywood stars would be considered underweight in both BMI and fat percentage terms, especially the women. However, as has been pointed out, this is part of the profession. For the rest of us, being in the normal BMI or fat percentage range is best, those ranges exist for a reason. As for what is most attractive, who knows? Some guys prefer thin, some prefer athletic, some prefer curvy and so on... What in the end matters is doing what is best for you, eating right and exercising regularly, though, depending on your profession (I'm in the military) this means something slightly different to the individual.
To "London" – yeah, first of all "Africa" is not a country. Secondly, in some Nigerian tribes, women were fattened before marriage but this practice died out about >40 years ago. Way to spread misinformation.
i poo poo and pee pee it gone down the water chair. plip plop. sssssssssssss
If anyone thinks she's 'underweight', you need to get your eyes checked. She's quite obviously a good size. You should never feel "full" throughout the day...and she works out the correct amount of time. So you know what that means? She is at a HEALTHY weight. Yes! It's true. She's probably a size 4. Underweight would be a size 0 or 00 on a middle aged woman. Sorry if you can't accept it, but putting in some effort into staying healthy is a GOOD thing.
Fat people are far lazier than lean people with athletic builds. Discuss
Skinny girls look old in the face – sorry, but it's true. Size 8 and EVERYONE I'VE EVER MET thinks I'm 10-15 years younger than my real age.
interesting. I'm a size 4 and people always think I'm younger too. Sounds like your conclusions based on one example are not based on a causal relationship after all!
I think it is sad when I see all of these girls trying to explain why they are fat. It is not healthy or even close to healthy. I agree that you can be too skinny but to try to justify the fact that you are overweight by saying its healthier that being skinny is not only insulting but downright ignorant. If you want to be overweight that is fine, its a free country but please don't lie to yourself and pretend that its healthy, Sorry to be rude, I would never post something like this but it would upset me if one person read these postings and actually believed it was healthy to be fat.
I agree that no one should argue that fat=healthy, but I would be more concerned with people reading these comments and believing that it's bad to be over a size 2 or weigh more than 110. So many of my friends are affected by eating disorders, and some of the comments on here only make girls like that feel worse. Eating disorders aren't usually just about looking good; they are about a more deep-rooted problem, such as depression, OCD, or anxiety. I really wish that movies/TV would use "healthier" actresses- not in the mindset of fat=average, but just actresses that advocate moderation.
I'd hit that.
I don't hate her at all, I think she's gorgeous. I'm in my 40s and I'm happy she's on the show. Just wish actresses were more honest about their age.
C'mon people, can't we turn this thread into one about weather or not God is real or make it racial in nature? Don't all these news story comment threads head that way at some point?
I don't know why people think starving themselves is a good way to lose weight or stay thin. About a year ago, I had let myself go to a point where I was about 50 pds overweight. I lost it all, and one of the main things I did was make sure I was eating more times during the day. Instead of eating 2 huge meals, I now eat 5 small meals. I am rarely ever hungry, and in better shape then I probably ever was in due to the exercise I mix in.
Being thin, healthy, and fit is one thing. Being sickly-looking and underweight is another. There is nothing hot about a little piece of nothing keeping herself in a state of perpetual hunger so she can remain a skinny little piece of nothing.
And like someone said before, it doesn't have to be starvation/underweight versus obese/ugly. You can be thin, healthy, and smokin' hot without food deprivation. People need to learn that in most cases model and actress thin =/= what a thin and healthy human being should look like.
Wow. She looks great for any age. If I had to guess I would say late 30's but no way 44. Lots of actresses and models fib about their age. It helps them get work and is really none of your beeswax anyway, is it? Of course she works out and watches her weight! How many of you want to watch a fat vampire waddling around in black leather? Lots of angry, jealous and bitter people here.
The story says she's 36.
Yes, but if you read the comments someone else disputed her age.
She's my favorite vampire on the show. I was afraid they were going to kill her off. Glad they didn't. I love her snarkiness.
Actually, being underweight is more dangerous than being mildly overweight. When you constantly starve your organs, they begin to deteriorate and can fail. Personally, I think she would look better with a bit more weight on her. And as someone who has suffered an eating disorder in the past, I can tell you that being hungry all the time is NOT a good feeling. It leads to anxiety and depression and can fuel other problems, such as drug use. What's so wrong about just being healthy??? Why can't people just practice moderation anymore?
We have gone to the moon but we can't create a camera that doesn't add 10 pounds so these people can eat?
I think she is so hot! She has a gorgeous body! She is such a slim goodie. I honestly thought she was older. I guess the Vampire Makeup does that. Bite me baby!
I just love her character Pam on True Blood. Pam's got lots of spunk. While it's all well and good to see these good looking bodies, I'd much prefer seeing a woman on there with more curves. I see the women on there who're the starlets and they've got to at least be a 6 or below. I'd much rather see a 12 or a 14. Even a 16 would be cool. The only one who isn't what I consider skinny looking on the show is Rutina Wesley aka Tara. She's got the athletic body, which is the lean muscular physique. I'm not knocking the skinny ones, but it wouldn't hurt to add some fuller figured women on the show. Would be nice.
Y'all need to leave "FAT PEOPLE" alone!!!
"It's a good incentive to stay slim, and is probably adding years to my life.'" "'After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before'"
Sorry honey, but maintaining a below than should be body weight and massively over exercising will actually TAKE years OFF your life. It's not good for you, by any stretch of the word.
Meh – where I agree that overexercising and undereating isn't good for you, she doesn't look underweight to me. Some people simply have to work harder than others to stay at a healthy weight; I'm one of those people. Even though I'm a bellydancer and I dance – really dance HARD – three times a week, I still have to work out six days a week to maintain my figure, plus I have to watch what I eat (I'm also a vegetarian and a "whole foods" advocate). I'm 5'6" and a well-muscled, curvy 150 lbs (boobs and hips, baby!). Am I "hungry all the time?" A little – but I think you should always be just a tiny bit hungry. Any time you can't push away from the table and go take a brisk one-mile walk, you've eaten too much.
If it's your job to be in show business than it makes sense to work hard on your body and looks. But if you are sitting at a computer all day than there is no reason to starve your self.
@KP Shaddup you fatty.
Of course she has to stay thin, she's playing a vampire. They don't eat and drink blood. How can you have a fat vampire? Show it eating at Kentucky Fried Blood? Sheesh. Overweight people talk like they're always being so oppressed by the world.
the way God made you? God did not make anyone fat – the horrible processed food we eat makes us fat
Eh, I'd rather die happy sooner eating what I want than live longer while starving myself thin.
Everyone is making such a huge fuss about Kristin saying she’s hungry. Sam Trammel said on Chelsey Lately that to prepare for a nude scene he goes hungry and Stephen Moyer has said multiple times that he basically starves himself several days before a nude scene. Why no hoopla when the men admitted to it?
Ladies, if you're over a size 2, you're fat. Sorry, that's the way the world works. Get those kankles on a stair master or become a crazy cat lady who collects Hummels. Your choice.
Actually, a better indicator of whether or not you're fat is you're body fat percentage!!!!!!! Within reason the label on the jeans doesn't matter as long as you're within medical guidelines and happy and confident!
And what size are you, hmmmm? I'm willing to to bet you're far from slim. The same standards should apply to you as well, "Fact".
Wow...looks like someone doesn't know anything at all about the world. The only people that call others that are larger than a size 2 fat are the superficial, insecure, fame-whoring, pig-headed people of the acting/modelling industry. Obviously not all, but majority – yes. And fun fact for you: did you know that in many countries in Africa, the women are actually fattened up before marriage because a bigger woman is considered way more beautiful? Also, honey, real men like real women. Real men like a healthy size 6 -14. Just look at Christina Hendricks. She's a size 14 and a bombshell. Oh, and Marilyn Monroe. Yeah...she was a size 10.
Size 2!!!! Are you kidding? Even when I weighed 95lbs in high school I wasn't a size 2, I carry way too much muscle. I work with a personal trainer who doesn't care at all about the number on the scale or the size of the clothes. He checks BMI, works to tone the muscles, and works on the diet. The real problem is that people don't know what foods are good to eat, or even how how to exercise. I've learned a lot in the past year working with the trainer, and started habits I plan to keep the rest of my life.
every story like this brings out the it's OK to be fat or I'm not fat I'm "healthy" or it's unrealistic and what will the young girls think...... BS, BS, BS!!! fat is ugly and unhealthy, nothing tastes as good as skinny feels, and you have no idea how much more energy you have by eating less, being a little hungry makes you appreciate food more
Although it may sound strange to some, what Lance says is absolutely true. Stop fighting it and accept it. If everyone ate whole foods, instead of processed foods, the obesity epidemic would stall then falter, because people would become full and satisfied with less calories. Stop making excuses for the fatties! You can never justify obesity – it is never healthy.
Unfortunately, this is what you have to do to make it in Hollywood. I'm currently dieting and I'm always hungry, too. It's no big deal.
This is such a ridiculous argument. Ladies-no one expects you to have the same body as some actress! I am an average woman, size 6, active and in shape with a persistent little tummy that only goes away if I diet like a psyco. I never have any trouble in the men department. The idea of ultra-thin vs unhealthy-fat is a false choice. There are tons and tons of super foxy women in between and Chris...cellulite has everything to do with genetics. Like I said, I'm a size 6 with a tummy and have zero traces of cellulite while my best friend is a 00 and can't get rid of the stuff.
I agree! I am also a size 6-thin but not at all what you'd call skinny. I've never lacked a date with a good looking man on a Saturday night. And I don't obsess about my weight, which they always respect. I cannot stand women who let men make them feel bad about themselves. You are letting them do it to you ladies.
sooo if John Cameron can invent all this high falutin' technology, why can't they invent a camera that doesn't add ten pounds? I have a number of friends that are actors and actresses and I can't tell you the number of times I have wanted to say "eat a damn sandwich or something".
Unfortunately, this is part of the business. what you also have to realize is how tiny actors can be. Even Kurt Russell and Patrick Swasey (RIP) were small fellows. Demi Moore is itty bitty. I saw her hand prints at Planet Hollywood and I was OMG she just a teeny tiny little thing...
Dang, you must need a microscope to see Carey Mulligan! Such "tiny starvin' chidren".
I've heard that too!!!!! I know people who have met these actresses and they were shocked by how tiny they actually are. They're mini-people!!!!
Who is John Cameron?
That's James Cameron not John Cameron.
While I understand why she does this, this actress is trying to remain underweight. It is seriously not good to be 'hungry all the time'. That is sad.
Dont worry, she will have all the time in the world to catch up on eating in 3 years when the series dies out, she gets killed off, or they find someone younger.
It seems there are two sterotypes of women, those who struggle and suffer to stay thin and those who let themselves go like no tomorrow and become huge!
And then there are those of us who eat strictly and work out 6 days a week just to stay at the high end of "healthy BMI". That's what happens when you're muscular, though. There's not much room for anything else.
I am 5' tall and weigh 102 lbs and I look damn good. Stop hating, stop eating junk, work out and then you can have a say.
I am 5'5" tall and weigh 157 pounds – overweight but not obese and live an active lifestyle. I look good and will outlive you. Sorry.
only time will tell. I am not hoping you die or anything.
Since when does being fat make you live longer than a thin person? Seems like your heart would go out sooner, or maybe this is just some thing that fat people made up to make themselves feel better.
Why tell us? Your weight doesn't have bearing on the topic at hand, except to chastise others to stay thin.
now y'all behave and stop bein' snitty. I weigh 100 hundred pounds more than either of you I am 30 pounds over my normal weight but I am active and I have a big frame any way. I want to lose weight but I am not going to get my boxers in a twist over it. It is a fact that a person that is underweight is more likely to have a heart attack than someone who is slightly overweight. When you take in stress load, a little extra weight is good for you. These folks are putting in 18 hour days shooting and it is exhausting work that takes a huge supply of energy. that being said, you don't need to store that much, you just need to burn it. Ordinary overweight people curse the existence of carbs because they are the ones that most likely turn to fat; but, for actors, dancers and athletes carbs are quick burning and don't hang around.
One caution you do have to have is you don't want your body fat too low because then you can damage your joints. I'd love to be thinner say 15% body fat; that would put me at 207 pounds but would question going lower than and making sure I wasn't just "skin and bones". You also need to make sure that you have enough amino acids to rebuild muscles and weight bearing exercises to keep your bones working properly. Y'all can't just keep doing Yoga and swimming.
oh and one other thing: over exercise in women can be considered a form of anorexia and can cause you to miss your periods. be aware of that. I have seen one of my friends reduced to almost of skeleton because she was doing so much running and not enough eating. It didn't look very pretty at all. down right upsetting. she chilled out a bit.
For Brit–do you have a lot of muscle tissue? That weighs more than fat tissue. I have friends who weight train and were told by the insurance company they were obese because of the weight alone. Doesn't matter that they could bench press around 400lbs.
I suspect Ms. Bauer is also worried about those underwear scenes where there is not always a well-placed table or credenza to hide a "pooch".
Why do people always say that muscle weighs more than fat? Is a dollar bill worth more than four quarters? No. A pound is a pound – no matter what it's made out of – muscle, fat, lettuce, peanut butter.... it's all the same weight. What is different is that a pound of muscle is more dense and takes up less space on the body than a pound of fat. Muscle also burns more calories per day than fat – raising your metabolism.
“I’m vegetarian, so I live on carbs"
Are you kidding me? "I'm a vegetarian so I eat bread and potatoes." Way to give veges a bad name. I'm a vegetarian too and I eat hardly any carbs. Stupidest statement (or editing) I've ever read. I think someone needs to talk to a nutritionist.
Actually, vegetarians do tend to eat more carbs than meat eaters. Don't forget, fruits and veggies are full of carbs/sugars, they just tend to be more complex carbs (meaning they use more energy to digest) and fiber (which btw, is a carb).
You may not, but you aren't a very active male trying to maintain an athletic physique for TV are you? You might be able to get away with fewer carbs, but he probably cant. The energy he burns has to come from somewhere and veggies are a very inefficient source.
Seriously...? Nicole, you're a idiot. Stop posting moronic things and infecting the world with your lack of knowledge.
Nicole, if you are not eating meat, that's fine, but you body still needs energy from carbs to keep them going throughout the day. I'm guessing if you don't eat many carbs, you are probably either anemic and don't have much energy to spare.
There are good carbs and bad carbs. Carbs are not your enemy. 100% Whole wheat, whole grains give you good energy plus they are good for digestion.
She wasn't trying to say all vegetarians eat lots of carbs.. she was saying that she does. Get off your high horse.
Congratulations. You're perpetuating the obsession with being thin in Hollywood. I hope young girls don't read this and think it's okay to always be hungry.
“After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before.” That's just sad. When are people going to be happy with the way god made them?
she's also very successful in her chosen career, why dont you get over the fact that some careers require people to be very attractive. Btw, what's your weight? I'm guessing your a chucky monkey.
Ahh yes I was wondering how long it would take for someone to comment on my weight which has no bearing on the subject. Real classy.
Also, you've just gotten to the crux of the problem. Why does thin and obsessed with weight equal "very attractive"
Maybe it's because thinner women are far more attractive than fat women and tend to have less health problems associated with being a fatty? If given a choice between a fit woman and one with cellulite who couldn't run half a mile guess which one I would choose 10/10 times?
Do a little research people – the latest studies indicate that underweight people and those who are extremely obese die earlier than people of normal weight—but those who are overweight actually live longer than people of normal weight. In fact, if people were honest, they would quit stating that chunky monkeys are just so gosh darn unhealthy and instead say "I know you're healthier than the average underweight starlet, but it doesn't matter, we don't care about health, only appearances."
She's not people. She's an actress playing the role of a vampire in a night club. Her wardrobe has a lot of leather and tight, form fitting clothes. Staying in shape is part of the job. She's not the only actress in Hollywood to do so. And I bet you know as well as I that if she decided to let herself go a little, there would be twice an many people commenting on how fat she is and how disgusting, etc.
Nonsense. There is no significant research that says being overweight will increase your lifespan over what is considered normal weight. Most research shows anything above normal decreases your life for obvious physiological reasons. Just be happy with your weight without clinging to quack research.
It's just that way because she has to look good in the clothes they put on her. Pam's character is very edgy and stylish (though she wears sweater sets in the books). Clothes just look better if you're thin.
None of the actresses in True Blood are scary thin, though. The actress that plays Tara is a healthy weight, and clearly does some strength training. Anna Paquin is quite slim, but she's naturally pretty slender.
I remember reading a study where they kept some rats on a very minimal diet, compared to rats on normal food. The half starved rats lived longer. As for the teenage girls that may get influenced, I think they're going to be more influenced reading these comments slagging fat/thin/old looking people, than by Kristin's quote about how she prepares for a screen job.
totally agree. "normal weight" isn't what you see on tv or movies. it's not being overweight either. but, you'd never see a women of normal weight on tv and if she was normal weight she would be playing a heavy girl.
the problem is god made too many women fat. thank god for celebs like this – maybe girls will listen and try to look decent instead of fatting out and chalking it up to nature
Did I leave the iron on?
The way God intended us to??
I don't think God would have come up with all the preprocessed crap that most Americans eat. That with the lack of exercise and nutritionally deficient diets has created a nation of obese americans.
I say good on her. Not only is she vegetarian which is so much better for your health but she also gets the exercise her body needs to stay healthy and fit.
When you live her life be my guest and make comments, until then follow the old rule of if you can't say something nice about someone, say nothing at all. As long as your body is getting the nutrition it needs to stay healthy, good for you Kristin!
Keep in mind kp that being on film makes you look bigger than you actually are so for an on-camera actor to look "normal" they actually have to be under their normal weight, reportedly by about 10 pounds. That can be a struggle to maintain for even the most physically fit people. Yes, it's a very vain industry and unfortunately, in an effort to keep looking "normal" or "attractive" for the camera, celebs often go crazy with their body image issues. That being said, what translates on camera shows a normal weight body image to those watching. What you have to look out for is when they look too thin even on camera.
No way that werewolf guy that body just from the gym. He's definitely on 'roids. Trust.
I don't want to see 'what God made' on TV. I want to see hot actors playing fictticous roles. So, good for her and all the actors on that show. And She looks amazing in leather.
First of all, everyone claiming that there is "science" to suggest that being overweight is going to make you live longer are full of it. Please stop putting bad information out there and trying to justify unhealthy living. Second, you don't have to starve yourself to be healthy. Make good food choices, eat proper portions and exercise. That's it. It's not difficult. Anything else is just an excuse.
Oh, and please shut up about "God". Religion has no place in this discussion.
It is okay to be hungry from time to time, it’s also okay if you skip a meal once and awhile. I think she’s sending a good message to young girls in a country where we have an obesity crises, that she controls what she eats and doesn’t let that food control her. I think a lot of the fatties in this country or just like alcoholics.
The diet seems to also be helping her age. I went to school with her and she has gone from being a year older than me to now being 7 years younger. Those must be incredible vegetables!
She is wearing a ton of makeup BTW!
36! Hmmm. She looks as old as Nicole Kidman (42 ish) – both great for their 40s. You can always tell by the neck (even under the makeup).
She was class of `84 and we didn't have any 10-year-olds graduating. On the bright side (for me), with her being 36, that means I get to be 35 again.
I was wondering what was up with her age.. Im 33 years old .. but If no one mentioned age.. i would have guessed her 10- 13 years older then me. she cant pass for 36. Beautiful for 43(?) .. but 36. no
I think she`s beautiful...enough said.
I have always thought Kristin Bauer looked considerably older than her alleged age. I know the IMDB True Blood board would love a link to a possible yearbook photo because a lot of them are in denial.
I once claimed I knew someone on the Internet, too.
36???!! What is she smoking. Not a day under 40.
I knew she was in her 40s! There was no way she was 36, I remember her on Seinfeld in the 90s with the "man hands" episode and she looked older.
Yeah right lady, you're 36. Look at the neck. That's an old lady neck.
She looks really good for her age, and i love her in the HBO series. Cant wait til sunday!\
As for all you haters thinking shes in her 40s, go to wikipedia.com, she was born November of 1973
She's hungry all the time because she's a vampire.
Yeah, 36 my foot. Watch her on the show she looks mid 40's...probably because she is.
