Baywatch beauty Alexandra Daddario: 'Confidence is sexy'

Alexandra Daddario is enjoying ice cream again after cutting out the frozen treat while shooting the upcoming big screen adaptation of Baywatch.

Baywatch star Alexandra Daddario has come to realise that being confident in her appearance makes her sexier.

The actress stars alongside a host of big names in the upcoming silver screen adaptation of the hit U.S. TV series, including models Kelly Rohrbach and Charlotte McKinney.

The role required Alexandra to spend the majority of her screen time in a bathing suit and while she could have felt daunted by that prospect, the brunette beauty instead chose to feel comfortable with her stunning appearance.

"I turned 31 recently, and through my twenties I learned that as a woman, being confident with how you look and how you feel is the most important thing," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I think no matter what, there's always something that you're going to criticise about yourself. Confidence is attractive, and confidence is sexy."

Alexandra embarked on a strict diet and exercise regime while shooting the film, which also stars Zac Efron and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. And while depriving herself of her favourite treats was more than difficult, Alexandra knew she had to just power through.

"Being in a bathing suit every day, you just had to be like, 'OK. I'm going to put the work in and I'm doing this,'" she explained. "And yes, it sucks, I couldn't eat a hamburger in the middle of set, but you just sort of throw away how you feel about what you look like and just focus on the work, and that's what I tried to do."

But since she finished filming the movie, Alexandra has allowed herself to enjoy the calorific treats she cut out during the shoot.

"I do have an ice cream habit that I sort of cut out for Baywatch and now I'm back on that!" she smiled.
