She’s starring on a hit television show. She’s planning her wedding to fianc√© Ben Foster. She’s the proud mother of two. And somehow, in between it all, actress Robin Wright, 48, manages to stay in amazing shape. So, what’s her secret? “I have Spanx on,” Wright told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles Confidential party celebrating her cover issue this week in Hollywood. “Always! I have to wear them all the time!”

Yes, Wright uses Spanx “to hold the bakery in”, as she jokes, but (of course!) she doesn’t rely solely on the support garment. “I ran on the beach this morning,” Wright said. “Running gets everything done, doesn’t it? Covers it all.” And with the new season of House of Cards getting ready to start filming and an upcoming wedding to plan, Wright is focusing on her figure more than ever. “I’m trying to do the paleo diet. No carbs. I’ve got to get thin for the show,” explained Wright.

But of course, the key to looking so radiant doesn’t lie entirely in supportive undergarments or a strict diet — being happy goes a long way. “I love my life,” Wright told PEOPLE. “What are you going to say? I love my life right now.”

What do you think of her fit-figure “secret?” Do you love her on House of Cards?
