Rocking a latex dress is no easy task. Rocking a latex dress on TV, where the camera adds an extra 10 lbs., requires sacrifice. “The other day I realized as long as I’m in this business, I’m going to be hungry,” True Blood‘s Kristin Bauer tells Popeater about her strategy to looking fang-tastic. Since joining the cast of HBO’s hit series last season as the figure-flaunting Pam, Bauer, who once played Jerry’s man-handed date on Seinfield, has stepped up her diet and exercise regimen to accommodate the form-fitting and body-flaunting costumes of Eric Northman’s (Alexander Skarsgard) sexy sidekick. “During that first wardrobe fitting, I knew I would have my midriff showing. I thought, ‘I need to get serious’ and started going to ab classes more regularly.” As part of a show known as much for its chiseled physiques as its skin-piercing fangs, the vegetarian acknowledges to Movieline that her costars are “all working out like crazy and have diets,” which for the ladies includes avoiding carbs onset. “All the women walk by Craft services and keep going. I don’t even know why we walk by, we’re just torturing ourselves.” And while she’s in tiptop form, Bauer says she’s still motivated to sweat a little more: “After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before.” — Christie LaRusso
