Evangelline Lilly at the 2008 Emmy AwardsIn addition to embracing her age, Evangeline Lilly eats “whatever the hell” she wants 24 hours before a big event. We ought to all follow this lady’s advice!

The Lost actress restricts her diet for a week running up to a red carpet appearance, but doesn’t see the point in panicking in the last few hours hours.

“I cut sugar and alcohol a week before an event. That trims the excess three to five pounds I like to carry to be healthy. The day before, I eat whatever the hell I want. I’m not going to put on weight in 24 hours.”

Evangeline, 30, admits that she isn’t a fan of the figure-hugging costumes she has to wear on the show, but her concerns are not listened to by the costume department.

“I hate the tight tops I wear on Lost. I’ve had little victories from time to time, when my character Kate has been allowed to wear something baggier. I’d say I’ve had a 10 to 15 per cent success rate. My new acid-wash jeans did not impress the Lost cast. Everyone was like, ‘You’re wearing acid wash?’ I tried to explain they’re in fashion, but they just didn’t get it.”
