I ate only spinach for 5 months to prepare for Star Trek role, says Alice Eve

Washington: Alice Eve, who stars in the upcoming `Star Trek Into Darkness`, has revealed that she started a diet consisting of pretty much only spinach a week after she learned that she nabbed the role.

The English actress recently admitted in an interview with The Telegraph that she maintained the diet for 5 months to slip into her spacesuit, RadarOnline.com reported.

"You`ve got to look as if you can hold your own on the Enterprise, and that means you`ve got to be in proper fighting shape," the 31-year-old asserted.
