On her physique: “It’s genetic. I don’t exercise too much. I live in heels—I even cook dinner in heels. I think it helps the tone of my legs. I don’t care for sweet foods, but I eat a lot. I love rice, potatoes, salads, fresh fruit. Everybody in Trinidad has a fruit tree in their yard, so you grab limes, coconuts, whatever, on a regular basis.”
