We all want to feel and feel our best. But the most important part is the pre-wedding festivities – there are so many wonderful things to celebrate and enjoy, and family and friends to celebrate with… I just can’t go through these things and feel this.” Love if I’m always worried about how I feel I put my mouth… I miss the point of the ceremonies completely.”
“No one is like, ‘Oh, her ankles could have been a little thinner in those shoes,'” King jokes.

While action movie star like the princess And Express train She’s professed her love of working out in the past, and says she now switches between wanting to work out and needing to give her body a break.
“I don’t push myself to do an hour of grueling exercise every day anymore because that’s how you fall in love with something,” she says, adding that she recently took a “three months off” from working out. “If I move my body at least 15 to 30 minutes a day, and I don’t feel like doing a big, heavy workout, that’s enough for me.

“Originally, I was so frustrated about it, but then I stopped looking, and I felt so much better,” she says. “My daily life – this is my real life. This is my bubble. This is full of my people. I really have no problems with myself.”
