Keri Russell Covers Health Magazine

Actress Keri Russell is featured on the cover of the March 2010 issue of Health magazine. In the accompanying interview, the actress dishes on diets, working out, and life with husband Shane Dreary and son River, 2 1/2.

Some highlights:

On keeping her energy up with a busy toddler:
"When I have time, working out really helps. Anything—walking, going for a run, Pilates—whatever there’s time for. I feel endlessly better when I do that."

On her fitness regime:
"My favorite thing, especially living in Brooklyn, is that I got a bike recently, and I ride it everywhere—to get groceries, the farmers’ market, to the park. Shane and I even biked into [Manhattan] a few times to meet friends for dinner. Also, we do dance parties at the house with River."

On the couple's plans to have another baby:
"Yes! We’re not there yet, but it’s totally a possibility. Although, I just ran into a friend of mine, and I said, “How’s the second baby?” And she said, “You have two, you might as well have 300.”

On her naturally thin physique:
"I’m totally lucky, and it’s just body type. My dad’s whole side of the family is very thin. Thank God I have that gene, because I eat doughnuts like there’s no tomorrow. But I do like to be physical, and I think if I just sat on my ass all day, I’d start seeing the effects. And certainly after a baby, it’s not exactly like it used to be. But that’s not my issue. There are plenty of other issues, but food is not one of them."

On marrying a non-celebrity:
"I feel that it’s a huge part of the success of the relationship. I love that he doesn’t really know anything about this business—and he’s always excited about it. And I love what he does. I think it’s incredibly sexy. I mean, he’s a hot carpenter … what can I say?"

On the best advice she has received as a parent:
"My dear friend Julie has three kids. When I had River and did not get a babysitter for a long time, she said, “Don’t be a martyr. It is not serving anyone.” And she’s absolutely right. You can’t do everything. And you don’t know it until you know it."
