Celebrities are revealing their skinny secrets as millions of plump people make 2009 resolutions to shed a few unwanted pounds.
"I still don't believe this craziness for being skinny, but I eat sensibly and I don't stuff down chocolate biscuits," she says.
Winslet, who's in nude scenes in both of her current movies, "Revolutionary Road" and "The Reader," also avoids the gym, but still breaks a sweat. "I don't go to the gym because I don’t have time," she says. "But I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home."

Alanis Morissette, on the other had, credits a diet of fruit, vegetables, beans and nuts inspired by the book "Eat To Live" for losing 20 pounds.
"I feel like a 12-year-old!" the "Jagged Little Pill" singer tells OK! Magazine. "I used to get out of bed in the morning and things were aching, and I just thought, this is what happens when you get into your 30s. But now I jump out of bed and have so much energy; I feel very alive."
Like Winslet, Morissette says she complements her diet with regular workouts.
"When I’m not on tour, I do between a half hour to an hour of light weights, running, biking, swimming, probably five times a week," she explains. "I also love to kickbox and dance."
Morissette does retain a soft spot in her heart for her former, fatter self. "There was a sexiness to my curvier self that I loved," she says.Read the full interview at OKMagazine.com.
