Model Irina Shayk: 'I Don't Understand How People Don't Eat – I Eat Everything!'

Irina Shayk

There is no denying that Irina Shayk has an amazing body (have you seen those bikini pics?!), but the supermodel insists it doesn’t come from depriving herself.

“I’m a model, but I love to eat,” Shayk – who is dating Bradley Cooper – told PEOPLE at Porcelanosa New York City Showroom Grand Opening. “Sometimes when I’m on set I keep eating and people are like, ‘You really eat that?’ I’m like, ‘Yes, I do.’ ”

And some of her favorite foods include dishes from her childhood.

“When I was growing up in Russia my grandmothers would cook the best pancakes in the world: the best meatballs, the best dumplings,” she says. “So I really, really love food. And I don’t understand how people don’t eat. I do eat everything.”

Then what’s the supermodel’s secret to looking so good?

“Well, I have good genes [so] I thank my family,” Shayk says. “But I work out a lot. I do boxing, I do a little jiu jitsu which I am obsessed with. It is so much fun [and] I have the best trainer. You have to find the best workout for your body. You have to balance between eating and working out.”
