minka kelly self magazineDon't let Minka Kelly's movie star good looks fool you: The girl's got flaws (or so she says), just like everyone else.

The Self cover girl says that while healthy living is an important part of her life for both personal and professional reasons, she believes that the occasional splurge is just as important.

"If you don't let yourself have things you want, especially when it comes to something as simple as food, you'll fail and end up being less healthful," she says. "I try to be sensible and have egg whites and oatmeal for breakfast, a salad with protein for lunch, and fish and veggies at night. But once in a while, I have that cheeseburger and fries!"

"I don't want to diet for the rest of my life ... I'd rather go for a small slice of real chocolate cake than a bunch of sugar-free cookies. It's all in moderation."
