Q: How did Bette Midler manage to lose so much weight? I saw her in the movie “The Rose” and she looks almost gaunt. Is she still that thin? — U.L., Chicago.

A: Bette, 33, did drop a lot of weight for her movie role — 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 — no jogging or tennis — Bette is a furious dieter and takes a lot of cod liver oil and iron pills to maintain her high-energy level.
