Ginnifer Goodwin is on the most recent cover of Health magazine—wherein she discloses she's been on Weight Watchers for 23 years, since she was 9 years old. "I actually have a number, and I know that some people say that's not the healthiest gauge. But I have had a number for, honestly, 12 years that's my happy number where I feel good about myself and my energy's high. I call it my 'shooting weight,' because it's also the number that doesn't freak me out when I see myself on screen." Excuse us while we go eat some cookies. [Popeater]
