Actress Emily Ratajkowski first captured the world's attention with her role in Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' video in 2013. Since then her star has risen with roles in Gone Girl and Amy Schumer's new film I Feel Pretty.

Recent Instagrams of her honeymoon confirm that she has one of the best bodies in the business.

But the 26-year-old actress says she doesn't believe in depriving herself. In fact she told InStyle that she eats pastry and coffee for breakfast every day.

"Every day I... get this pastry called kouign-amann with my black coffee, I always pretend that I don't know what I'm getting. I'm like, 'Um, hmm, I guess I'll get... a kouign-amann?' They're like, "Uh-huh."

Kouign-amann, a round crusty cake, originally made with bread dough, contains layers of butter and sugar folded into a puff pastry. So basically, very yum.

Ratajkowski has also revealed in the past she's "not a big gym person".

"I really like being outside and doing yoga, so I do a lot of hiking in LA and I have a yoga studio really close to my house that I go to like once a week," she told InStyle in 2016.

That's right. She goes for walks and does yoga and eats pastries.

But she also sticks to a fairly healthy diet telling The New York Times "it's about feeling good about what you eat".

"Lunch is usually a salad or a sandwich. If I'm on set, I'll have catering, but I'm well-behaved with that stuff. It's easy to go crazy - they know how to feed you," she says.

"I really like to eat meat. I crave iron," she told Elle last year. "I like to keep it really balanced to give my body energy but also be healthy. I cook a lot, so that really helps; you know how much salt and sugar and all that kind of stuff you are putting in your body," she explains.

But most of all, she says "it's really important to just give yourself a break".

"And also just really think about where things are coming from and what kind of ingredients are going into your body."
