Sunny actress Marissa Jaret Winokur turned heads this week when she hit the "Wreck-It-Ralph" Hollywood premiere on Monday night flaunting a dramatically slimmed-down figure! The "Retired at 35" star has lost 60 pounds, and she says she did it simply by exercising and eating right.

While she looks absolutely fabulous, Winokur admits that she doesn't always feel so great about her new appearance. "When I was a size 14, I was super happy. I felt confident in my body. I don't think a size really should define who you are, and how you feel about yourself," she tells People. "The doctor [was] saying I'm not healthy ... so I [needed] to change my way of life. But, interestingly enough, there are moments in my life [when] I felt more comfortable in that body sometimes than in this body."
She's even holding onto her plus-size clothes, saying "because I'm sure I'll gain [the weight] all back." (Apparently, Winokur hasn't heard of Oprah guru Martha Beck's philosophy that what you think about becomes your reality!) Winokur's particularly concerned about one piece of her wardrobe. "I have jeans that fit me great and what if I gain it back? I need those jeans," she insists to "The Insider."
Even if she does maintain her newly trim physique, Winokur says she'll never be considered as thin as her peers. "I definitely have moments where I'll go to an audition or a meeting and girls are just so much skinnier," she says. "I'm still in Hollywood. I still will be considered a chubby actress."
