Barfi! actress Ileana D' Cruz is a self-confessed foodie but she credits pilates behind her toned body. The 26-year-old actress, who will be next seen in Main Tera Hero opposite Varun Dhawan and Nargis Fakhri, said she makes sure to burns out the extra fat with the help of pilates.
"I am very self-conscious about my body. I still feel embarrassed when people compliment me. I still can't relate to it. It's not a bikini scene. I don't think I am fit enough for that. I have just shown my tummy. I don't starve myself. I am a foodie. I eat every possible thing and if I would tell you my food chart you won't believe that an actress can have so much. But whatever I eat I just make sure that I exercise regularly. I do pilates to stay fit," said Ileana, who was in the Capital to promote Main Tera Hero with Varun Dhawan.
In the film, Ileana plays a college girl Sunaina but the actress said she does not relate to her role in real life. "Sunaina is a shy and mysterious girl. In real life I am completely opposite to what my character in the film is. There are few instances where I relate myself with the character but I don't feel I am much like Sunaina," she said.
After proving her acting mettle in her debut film Barfi!, Ileana is also making a mark in the industry with her dancing skills. She had matched footsteps with Shahid Kapoor and Varun in Phata Poster Nikla Hero and now in Main Tera Hero.
Ileana felt at ease dancing with Varun as she considers him a close friend. When they were shooting for 'Besharmi ke heights' song, she felt like they were dancing in a club. Main Tera Hero is a lighthearted, entertaining film that is not meant to be taken seriously. The film is slated to release on April 4th.
