A: Bette, 33, did drop a lot of weight for her movie role â€” about 25 pounds. But she’s gained back about five pounds and it suits her just fine. Five foot Bette now looks trim, almost svelte, and she intends to stay that way. Although she’s not an exercise freak â€” no jogging or tennis â€” Bette is a furious dieter and takes a lot of cod liver oil and iron pills to maintain her high-energy level.
