If you loved Lucy Liu in Ally McBeal, Dirty Sexy Money, Kill Bill, and Charlie's Angels, you're in luck! The gorgeous actress is back on the small screen this fall, starring in the new CBS drama Elementary (think Sherlock Holmes but with a modern twist).
Liu is known for playing kick-butt roles, so it's not surprising she happens to do just that in real life too. The 43-year-old feisty female stays in fighting shape with activities like hiking, biking, jogging, and swimming. She's also worked with celeb trainer extraordinaire Teddy Bass to keep her tush toned and abs flat.

Aussie model turned Hollywood hottie Rachael Taylor may star in a very devilish new ABC series called 666 Park Avenue, but she's an angel when it comes to her fitness. Taylor says she values keeping active, eating good food, and practicing proper portion control to stay healthy from the inside out.
Sticking to a simple diet of oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, fish, protein, veggies, and nuts, the 28-year-old blonde bombshell loves going on morning runs and swears that exercise "helps her relax."

Although we're used to the image of Pamela Anderson running on the beach in that infamous red swimsuit, we love that she'll be cha-cha-cha-ing her way back into the ballroom for season 15 of DWTS.
How does she stay in such bodacious shape? As one of ABC's All-Stars, the 45-year-old sex symbol follows a strict vegetarian diet. When it comes to working out, no gym is necessary for this beach babe! The former Baywatch beauty says her kids keep her in shape; they play football, basketball, and baseball together.

The Vampire Diaries actress is not only in killer shape, but her career is red hot too! Back and better than ever for the fourth season of her hit supernatural show, the 23-year-old brunette keeps her figure fab with volleyball, soccer, swimming, rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding, wake boarding, and pretty much anything else related to the world of sports.
A former competitive gymnast, Dobrev told Seventeen that when she works out, she feels "happy, confident, and accomplished." And if she weren't an actress, she'd consider opening a yoga studio (due to her obsession with hot yoga, of course!).

While Rachel Berry has officially graduated from McKinley High School, she still continues to be a big part of the show this fall (phew!). What exactly Glee has in store for us this season remains a mystery, but one thing's for sure: Lea Michele is still one smokin' hot Gleek!

The 31-year-old adorable actress has captured the hearts of America on her hit show, Hart of Dixie, and we've got those curves to thank!
Despite her svelte silhouette, it's refreshing to hear Rachel Bilson doesn't obsess over having an intense fitness routine. Her favorite form of exercise is dancing "or some sort of sport," because she's just not the kind of gal to head to the gym. When the CW star doesn't feel like leaving the house, she turns to her yoga DVDs to strengthen her mind, body, and soul at the same time.

In real life, the 34-year-old stunner gets her blood flowing in the morning with yoga and follows an organic diet with minimal processed foods.

With those famous curves and enviable figure, Sofia Vergara always manages to look sensational—on and off the red carpet. But even though the three-time Emmy nominee is a self-professed gym hater, she forces herself to work up a serious sweat with her personal trainer, Gunnar Peterson, as much as she can. All in all, the 40-year-old vivacious vixen knows how to keep everything in moderation, telling Fox411, "Not too much food, not too much exercise, not too much anything."
