I've been on a diet for 40 years, says Kim Cattrall

London, April 05 (ANI): Kim Cattrall has revealed that it has taken her 40 years of weight watching and exercise to look as good as she does at 56.

The actress, who played maneater Samantha Jones in Sex And The City, told Woman 'n' Home magazine that she has been on a diet since 1974, the Mirror reported.

Cattrall said that she likes to eat and her body type is not naturally this thin, especially at this age.

The 'Mannequin' star said that she hopes that working out every other day and minimising stress will allow her to keep playing sexy characters as a sexagenarian.

Cattrall added that when she hit her 40s she thought that she can't play a sexy siren any more, but now almost 20 years later, it's still going on. (ANI)
