The Eastwick star has shed more than 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms) through diet and exercise and decided to flaunt her new trim figure in a two-piece swimsuit in an advert for U.S. diet company Jenny Craig.
Rue was wracked with nerves before debuting her new look, but insists she is delighted to have finally completed her weight loss mission.
She tells Access Hollywood, “I’m done. I’m done (losing weight). I’ve never worn a bikini before – ever… Not when I was a little kid, ever! It’s shocking the amount of sunscreen one needs to put on.”
But the curvy beauty admits she has to continue watching what she eats to ensure she fits into her bridal gown for her wedding to fiance Kevin Price next month (May11).
She adds, “I’m definitely being careful because I had my dress fitting and I don’t want to not fit into my dress, but after that, it’s the honeymoon and game on as far as I’m concerned.”
