Katharine McPhee Covers 'Self' March 2012

Katharine McPhee shows off her toned tummy in a white bikini in this photo from Self‘s March issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old cover girl and Smash star had to share with the mag:

On her first experience with the NYC subways: “Smash has a set in Brooklyn, and on my first day of work, I said, ‘I’m going to be a real New Yorker, get there on my own and not spend $30 on a cab.’ But I went the wrong way on the subway, and when I asked for directions, the person in the booth was mean to me. So I ended up crying and in a cab anyway. Now the show sends a van for me.”

On how she unwinds after work: “If I’m not too exhausted, my husband [Nick Cokas] and I go out for a nice neighborhood dinner. Or we do leftovers, maybe lentils and turkey burgers, then Pinkberry for peanut butter yogurt.”

On her Smash workouts: “I do a five-hour dance rehearsal. I feel it in my thighs and calves, but it’s so stop-and-go. I miss my real workout … I love my body when I’m in the best shape I can be in. It feels good to be strong.”

FYI: Katharine is wearing a Pleasure Doing Business dress, Mauri Pioppo earrings, a Ferragamo cuff, a Phillips Frankel necklace, and Kate Spade shoes on the cover. She also rocked a KiraKira ring at the shoot.

    so judging her for her ‘subway story’. it is not that hard, it’s called preparing your route before hand and common sense.

    sheesh! do we reaaaally need another singing tv show?!

    Like EVERY movie/tv production picks up their actors by van, they give them the option.

    I love people judging her over dumb things.
