The Good Wife's Christine Baranski Talks About Good Living

Stage, screen, and TV actress Christine Baranski talks about her career, family, and healthy lifestyle.


Yes, when I was little girl I studied ballet for many years, and then I started doing a bit of jazz and tap, and later I did modern dance. I've just recently gone back to doing ballroom dancing, which I love.

Speaking of exercise, how do you manage to get it in when you're working so many long hours?

Well, when you're working long-hour days, you don't exercise, but I often have light episodes or days off. When I do, I either take a Pilates class or I do yoga. I also absolutely love to power walk in the countryside where I live.

Do you have a guilty food pleasure?

I love chocolate ice cream cones. They make me feel like a little girl. We have a great ice cream place in Connecticut, and when I was pregnant with my second child, I would literally go every single night, and my husband had to drive me.

I see why you've stayed married to him!

And he still loved me.
