Healthy Hollywood: Get Movin’ Monday – Katharine McPhee’s Bold Rules!


"I'm most daring about things I'm really passionate about," reveals Katharine McPhee, the star of NBC's "Smash" in the April issue of Women's Health magazine.

Katharine shares with the magazine her tips on finding success in the aggressive showbiz world. "There are those people who are bold at industry parties, who go up to big producers and directors and introduce themselves, and I'm not really like that. I'm really kind of shy, and I'm not the best self-promoter."

Instead, Katharine lets her talent speak for itself, adding, "You get one opportunity to audition. I like fighting for things in the traditional way – by being as prepared as I possibly can."

The actress/singer‘s career launched after she was runner-up on "American Idol" back in 2006. The 28-year-old says competing on the reality show was the boldest thing she's ever done. But, she's somehow managed to conquer her fears and release 2 albums and is working on a third. "I've wanted to have a fun record for so long, and it is fun! I'm not a serious person at all, and people who know me [know] I'm so goofy, and I want that to come out in the music," adds McPhee.


One thing Katharine is serious about is exercise. She's in amazing shape. Just check out her enviably flat belly on the April cover of Women's Health. "My tips for sneaking in a workout are ankle weights. I've been actually caught on set wearing ankle weights. With paparazzi photos it's really not that attractive so I try to do it in private. It's great waiting around my trailer, I'll do some like, leg things, and get the muscles going, and wastes some good time," reveals Katharine.
