Grace used to remain in shape with more focus on diet rather than exercises. We know that she belonged to a sports family, so fitness was in her blood.

Kelly used to stay away from desserts and instead ate yogurt with berries. She was less interested in exercising, but whenever she did, it was mainly yoga.

Grace used to follow a diet plan called “elevenses.” According to this, she used to eat oatmeal for breakfast and snacked on carrot sticks with celery and dried apricots if she got hungry before 11 am.

Did we miss anyone?


  1. The Hitchcock film “Rear Window” really ought to be listed in her filmography. Not only is it one of Hitchcock’s best, and a remarkably apt (even today) commentary on human nature, it’s also loaded with the crème de la crème of actors, co-starring with Jimmy Stewart, but she also completely holds her own in the movie.
    Plus, as I mentioned, it’s a Hitchcock film. He was not known for choosing actors who weren’t extraordinarily capable of holding their own against a pantheon of (what might be considered a frightening accompaniment of remarkable other actors). She was remarkably composed and a wonderful counterpoint to Jimmy Stewart’s less glamorous character—that is a large part of what makes the movie so much a remarkable and “something for everyone” movie. That film ought at least to be included in her filmography. You do her an injustice by not even mentioning it.
    Thank you for allowing me to submit my opinion…I’m not even a huge Grace Kelly fan, but when she’s good, she’s remarkable. (And it IS a Hitchcock film, her appearance in it in and of itself deserves acknowledgement.)
