In a 2015 interview with Harper's Bazaar, Kristen reveals that one of her passions is cooking. "I tend to be a little more instinctive," she told Jimmy Kimmel about her cooking method and how she shies away from cookbooks. A few of her favorite dishes? Homemade pasta dishes like pasta with bolognese, cacio e pepe, and fettuccine with langoustines.


She Enjoys Eating "Terribly"

Kristen can "eat terribly for long periods of time," she revealed to Harper's Bazaar. "I can have meals at gas stations." During her periods of indulging, she admits she gains weight. "I'm a little bigger than sample size when I'm eating cheeseburgers and am happy and comfortable." If I'm stressed or working, the weight falls off.

"If I'm stressed or working, the weight falls off," she told Harper's Bazaar. "My weight and my sleep are tied to my nervous system. Sometimes I'll sleep for 12 hours a night and sometimes sleep just doesn't exist for me for a couple of months. I'm a small person, but if I'm wrecked I get too thin. But then if I'm really happy… I enjoy food immensely and I like a glass of red wine."


She Works Out with a Trainer

When she needs to get into "phenomenal" shape, she needs a month and a personal trainer. However, in just two weeks she can get pretty fit with the help of press-ups. "If I'm not in good shape, I can do 10. If I'm trying to get fit, I'll drop and do 20 every half hour throughout the day. I can do 250 push-ups in one day, which is pretty impressive. But I'm such a one-upper. I'm always the kid that's arm-wrestling with her friends and trying to juggle four balls instead of three and saying, 'Ooh, can you light this lighter with your pinkie? I can,'" she told Harper's Bazaar.


She Has Been Open About Her Anxiety Struggles

"I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacks…I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn't anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I'd be like, 'Maybe I'm going to get sick'… It's kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that's not to say I don't get worried," she told Elle UK about her anxiety.
