Ashley Jensen's Weight Loss Story Revealed
Ashley Jensen is remarkable for her roles Maggie Jacobs, Christina McKinney, and Agatha Raisin, in the TV shows- Extras, Ugly Betty, and Agatha Raisin, respectively. Finally, in the mid-forties, she became a main cast, Agatha Raisin, who is strangely a PR executive solving rural murder cases. A decade ago, she was on the screen as a mate of Betty Suarez between 2006 and 2010. Let’s dive down to facts on Ashley Jensen’s weight loss secrets during her stay in LA.
As a character, Christina McKinney, who brought drama and comedy on the table of ‘Ugly Betty,’ Ashley Jensen has come across 35 pounds weight loss journey. Reducing the flabby arms and getting back at the curves in her late thirties, she made a household name with Maggie Jacobs, Christina McKinney, in the mid-2000s.
But none of them suggested her to shed some pounds before. Plus, they didn’t bother her, telling she should have undergone lip filler and Botox to binge the attractive appeal on the screen. Perhaps, she was one of the side roles or an outsider whom they didn’t pressure to change her mien. Still, she trimmed down more of her 35 pounds and landed a major role in American Television.
“Maybe it was because I was too old, or I was in comedy. ‘Ah, just leave her, she’s beyond it.’ I think it’s because I was a little older, an outsider, and I was always up for the best friend [part], so I never felt pressured. I still don’t feel pressure to change what I look like….”
Losing a significant amount of weight makes one approachable and self-assured. In terms of Ashley Jensen, she bagged the role in American shows. Plus, the casting directors were in awe of her accent; it wasn’t the weight loss effect alone that landed her on the TV segments. In the early days, she regarded her line of work as a success while working in the theaters because she was reinforcing herself on the chosen profession. It merely works on most of the actors, though.
As in the before and after picture of Ashley Jensen, one can easily notice she has gotten rids of flabby arms and approved a new trim waist. She has her curves in a slinky cocktail dress and heels. After all, she lost extra baggage of 35 pounds while staying in LA.
There’s always a workout regime or diet secrets for a weight loss strategy. What’s the secret behind the slim and trim figure of the actress? Though she hasn’t chosen words on workout schemes, she has unveiled how the dirt helped her drop 35 pounds.
Before she took a flight to Los Angeles, she turned vegetarian. All thanks to her mother, who inspired Ashley to go over plant-based diets. So, she consumed nutrient-dense and low-calorie diet, which automatically refers to no chance of gaining extra pounds. Also, it meant shedding down the surplus of weight that you had before.
All of a sudden, she was slim and trimmed while staying in the city of dreams- Los Angeles. After four years of creating a household name, Christina McKinney, in ‘Ugly Betty,’ she left the show and returned to the hometown where she broke pescatarian rules. She turned towards the non-vegetarian diets again. Though Ashley includes the meat-based diet, she still possesses a lean figure, likewise the ‘Ugly Betty’ days.
