Being on diet really sucks, I am not that type of girl who would go on the strict dieting to stay slim. It makes me feel miserable. I love the way I look. I can never be like those actresses who look like birds every time. I would rather prefer to look a little more chubby on camera than looking great. Also, I want to look like a actual person in real life rather than a scarecrow.
