    Want to look like Star Trek star Alice Eve?

    Of course, you do! But you may not be willing to pay the price for the blond beauty's bangin' bod.

    The Raven star recently shared how she shed the pounds for her role in the J.J. Abrams-directed film, revealing how she embarked on a diet consisting almost entirely of spinach for five months. (No, seriously.)

    "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 actress told the U.K. Telegraph in defense of her extreme diet.

    The successful star also remembers struggling when she first game to Hollywood, admitting she had a difficult time dealing with defeat. 

    "I cried all the time. The way you're treated, the indignities you suffer, the way that your value as a person means nothing to some people," she says of her big move to Los Angeles.

    But the strong-minded star never gave up: 

    "I'm pretty determined, you know. When I got turned down for things, which happened quite a lot, I wouldn't be floored by it...I sort of believe that you make your own destiny. Obviously, luck plays a part, but you've got to have self-belief, too." 

    Looks like she's also self-believed her way to a slimmer self.
