Olga Kurylenko: I never diet

Olga Kurylenko "never" works out and "eats everything".

The Ukrainian beauty rose to fame as Bond girl Camille Montes in 007 flick Quantum of Solace, starring alongside slick spy Daniel Craig.

Her toned figure would require a lot of hard work from most people, but the 33-year-old claims she is simply genetically blessed in the looks department.

"I never exercise and I eat everything," she insisted to British newspaper The Sun.

Olga's latest role is in romantic drama To the Wonder, which is directed by Terrence Malick.

The star admits her ability to tuck into endless amounts of food without gaining weight irritated her colleague when they dined together.

"It drove Terrence crazy. We always had lunch together and he'd shout, 'How's it possible that this girl eats so much?'" she laughed.

Her love of food could be to do with the fact Olga had very little when she was growing up.

The gorgeous actress was raised by her single mother, and they often struggled financially.

"My mom Marina and I were poor and hungry. We could sometimes not afford to eat - seriously," she recently admitted.

"We lived together in a small town, called Berdyansk, in Ukraine. I was an only child. I don't think we would have survived if there had been more kids."

Olga's luck changed when she was scouted by a modelling agency at the age of 14.

She moved to France when she was 16 to pursue her career and eventually ended up with high-profile movie roles, including her current stint alongside Colin Farrell in Seven Psychopaths.
