Sarah Hyland credits her slim frame to weightlifting.
The 'Modern Family' star is known for her petite physique, but insists she is more interested in being strong than skinny.
She said: "I don't want to have a skinny look, I want to have muscle.
"I do a lot of weight lifting. Not big weights or anything like that, but I like to do some strength training so I can be strong."
Sarah attended the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night (06.01.16) looking stunning in her minidress featuring a beaded corset top and black flare skirt.
But she admitted she has only just returned to the gym because she had somewhat overindulged over the festive season.
She added to DailyMail.com: "I started back working out 'cause I was, like, 'the holiday's have been rough on me!' "
One such overindulgent moment came when Sarah attended her friend Vanessa Hudgens' New Year's Eve pizza party.
She continued: "What did I get up to on New Year's Eve? Well I went to my friend Vanessa's house and we had a lot of pizza and stomped on the pizza box because it was so big. So we did the whole countdown, we all had fun and we danced. Then I went to an after party."
