The beautiful cubana, however, admits that when she was younger she suffered from bad acne, which she eventually connected to her poor diet.

“I used to have really bad skin and that was absolutely due to the food that I was ingesting,” she said. “I lived on processed fast food. I drank a ton of soda and I ate greasy, fatty, cheesy foods consistently. I went around with really bad acne well into my early 20s. Even into my 30s, when I was still eating a lot of dairy. I’d get those little white bumps all over my skin -- I stopped eating dairy and it completely changed my skin.”

Still, the actress, who’s set to star in the remake of Annie, says that while she loves to keep healthy, she also occasionally splurges.

“I’m a total advocate for eating the things you love. For sure I splurge. Health is an equation, it just depends on how many times you pick good over bad. You need a higher ratio of good, and if you do [that], you’re ahead of it.”
