American actress Kelly Rutherford was born on November 6, 1968 in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Her mother, Harriet Edwards, is a known model and writer. She started acting in 1987, particularly appearing in daytime operas. Her first screen exposure was in Loving. Eventually, she became more prominent as she was hired to play a significant role in Generations for three years. In 1988, she earned her first exposure on big screen, playing a minor role in the crime-drama action film Shakedown. She had series of other acting performances on big screen, including in films Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge, No Greater Love, Buried Secrets, Scream 3, and The Chaos Factor. Becoming more adept in acting, she was hired to play the role Lily van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl from 2007 to 2012.
Kelly practices a healthy diet, but she’s not into strict diet. In one of her interviews, she admitted, “As I’ve gotten older, I’m into what makes me feel good and what gives me energy. I think when you’re younger, you can get away with not eating right, and it’s okay, but as you get older, you have kids and you work, and you need to keep your energy. For me, it’s more about well-being and health than it is about dieting. It’s ‘what am I going to eat so I can have energy today and I can focus?’ I’ve always eaten healthy, but I don’t obsess about diets and things. It’s more of a focus on health and well-being now.”
80% of Kelly’s diet is more on organic foods. In addition, she said she adds more salt in her diet. “I’m the opposite of most people, because I need more salt. That’s a vice I’m trying to take up. I have to remember to put salt on things. My blood pressure’s actually low, not high, and it’s not a natural thing for me to do that,” Kelly expressed.
