Actress Molly Ringwald wowed viewers of the Academy Awards, showing off her svelte figure after welcoming twins just 8 months ago. The Pretty in Pink star revealed to PEOPLE the secret to her new body, a healthy diet and exercise! Ringwald, 42, made a change to her eating habits and added exercise when the twins were six-weeks old, saying, “It was more just a sensible diet, cutting down on sweets and upping the vegetables and protein, less starch, and I just worked out a lot, I’d say about three or four times a week.”
The mom-of-three made a point to add some green to her diet, adding, “I try to make sure that I eat something green. I think that’s just a really good rule of thumb. I love all different kinds of vegetables, but the green ones are generally the best for you and the best for your diet.”
Along with twins Adele and Roman, Ringwald, who is currently starring in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and husband Panio Gianopoulos are also parents to 6-year-old daughter Mathilda.
