The 37-year-old actress covers Shape magazine's June issue and shows off her slim physique in a variety of sexy swimsuits for the accompanying photo shoot, revealing how she maintains her famous figure. It turns out Hudson already found the fitness program that works for her when she was only in her teens.

"I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I'm still doing it," she shares. "It's the workout my body really responds to. It's all about alignment, elongating your spine, and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest."

As it turns out, she's actually been pushing her body to be the best that it can be since she was a toddler, thanks to her mother, actress Goldie Hawn.

"I was three years old when my mom enrolled me in dance class, and I practiced intensely until I was about 14," Hudson says. "I was not a big fan of ballet, but she made me do it. Now I'm so grateful that she didn't allow me to quit. It was the best thing she could have done for me. In dance, you're constantly competing with yourself, and you're only as good as your practice. It taught me discipline."

Hawn also passed down a healthy appreciation for food.

"My mom has always been healthy, but she's not a health nut," Hudson explains. "I'm the same way. I absolutely believe in enjoying my food, especially when I travel. I don't eat a lot of meat when I'm home, but I can't be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I just love it so much."

"Enjoying good food is a huge part of being healthy and happy," she adds. "When I was growing up, everybody came to our place for dinner on Sundays. It was a joyful house. Food was very important; there was always something good cooking. Mom went to India a lot in the seventies, so she made curries and dal. She cooks Southern food too -- her dad was from Arkansas. She makes a mean biscuits and gravy and chicken and dumplings."
