Nina Dobrev Covers 'Self' November 2012

Nina Dobrev Covers 'Self' November 2012

Nina Dobrev shows off her sexy curves on the cover of Self magazine’s November 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old The Vampire Diaries star had to share with the mag:

On her tummy toning preference: “Six-pack abs? Not me. I have a flat tummy, but I’m not rock hard. If I’m going to be in a bikini, I’ll train more and skip desserts for a couple of weeks. But usually, I work out to feel good.”

On her diet: “Starving to be skinny isn’t my thing. When I don’t eat, it affects my mood! On-set, I fuel up with small meals and I’m always grabbing high-protein snacks, like almonds. Chai lattes with espresso also keep me going.”

On her personal growth motivational tool: “I want to keep growing, so I make vision boards that say things like, ‘Learn. Excel. Succeed.’ Using my imagination, spelling out what I want to achieve and creating a reminder of those things helps me move forward.”

    Ok at 23 yeah you can work out. BUT trust me most 23 year olds have GREAT bodies. You may not think so. But when you are older and look back at pictures or hold up a pair of jeans you once wore. Your like wow did I ever have a GREAT body, didn’t even have to watch what you eat. I’m not trying to take anything away from Nina because she looks great. But seriously people when your 23 your body has peeked and you have no wrinkles. Wait another couple of years when you do have to watch what you eat, yikes. As for smoking, sorry people Nina does smoke. There are a few pictures of her smoking with Ian. Don’t mean to preach but smoking does give you wrinkles so that alone should make young beautiful girls stop smoking. Of course it’s bad for your health. But in this day and age of beauty the only way to get through to young girls is to say your looks go down the sh-itter from smoking, again I know. The old if I would’ve known then what I know now is sooooooo true!

    She smokes, I assume that’s her naughty Southeastern European/Balcanic genes. We here do smoke a lot, I know it’s bad but… sometimes it’s just too good.

    @A: yeah thats the most ridiculous thing ive read so far.. she has no right trying to endorse a healthy lifestyle when shes sucking on a cancer stick.

    A Says:

    Chill out, I wrote my comment in a funny note. Who cares if she smokes or not? That’s her private thing and life, she has absolutely right to smoke if she wants it. She is not responsible for your health or anybody else’s, just for her own. So, if in your opinion she does not endorse a healthy lifestyle just ignore her and the magazine. Nina is not the person we see on tv or in the magazines, she lives on her own just like everybody else. No need to be judgy or dramatic about her smoking. Her life, her choice.

    Lilie Says:

    For the record, her & Ian smoke.. but not on a regular basis !
    You know, not like people who would smoke 20 cigarettes during the day.. Her mom wrote something on twitter about it some while ago.. she likes to smoke a cig during a party or when she feels like it but that’s all.
    And I mean, that’s totally the truth cuz besides some pics here & there in all the 4 years she’s been papped, we really do NOT see her a lot with a cig.. ;)

    Anya Says:

    Yes, I agree. And many other people do the same and they are not like ‘real’ smokers. I don’t see what’s tragic about that, let them smoke if they want.

    Verite Says:

    I’m totally not into smoking. Its not for me and I wouldn’t want anyone I love smoking as I think its not healthy. But its not illegal and to me as long as someone respects the fact that I don’t want them smoking in my house and I’m not going to be stepping outside with them when they grab a cigarette then, none of my business.
