Kirstie Alley is a Committed Scientologist

Kirstie Alley graces the cover of Ladies’ Home Journal‘s May 2010 issue, on newsstands Tuesday, April 13!

Here’s what the 59-year-old actress had to share:

On lying to herself about her weight: “When we get fat, we fool ourselves with every kind of lie imaginable. By 2008 my weight started creeping up and I said, ‘Oh, I still look good at 150. I still look good at 155. I still look okay at 165. Some of my clothes still fit at 175. ‘And nobody was saying ‘You’re fat.’ I was like a bank robber who was getting away with it.”

On the fun in getting fat: “On one hand it was the greatest thing in the world getting fat. Every meal out was an event. Or we’d go to Italy and we’d have pasta, truffles and dessert and then plan the next incredible meal. It was a happy-go-lucky time. I never had so much fun.”

On her love life: “Nonexistent. As I get older it’s harder to know what I would want in a relationship. I love spending time with my kids and my friends and my animals. I love traveling and working. The last thing I need to think about is some dude.”

On being a committed Scientologist: “Scientology helps you lose your insanities. One of the keys is to say, ‘You’re in charge of your life, buster. You’re responsible for any condition you’re in.’ If I look at it that way it helps. I’ve been irresponsible many, many, many times and that has resulted in me being fat.”
