"My mom told me to always take makeup off before going to bed. She told me, 'Don't touch your face,' but I do. Also, 'Get enough sleep' -- I try to get 7 hours."

When you're trying to lose 5 pounds, what's the first thing that goes and why?

"It's alcohol, because I like martinis or red wine -- both totally superfluous and to cut them is one of the easiest ways to cut calories. I can't live without carbs but I do really watch sodium content -- it's in so much of what we eat. It can have a big impact on how bloated you feel."

What cause is near and dear to you?

"I'd say the approach taken by Stand Up to Cancer, which funds the most innovative research to help find a cure for this epidemic. I did participate in the telecast, but I'd like to do more.

I like organizations that help women in third-world countries. It's not always so helpful just to say, 'Here's money.' I prefer organizations that teach skills relevant to areas where women live -- I'm looking more into that."
