It's been nearly 20 years since Elizabeth Berkley bared all in the 1995 cult classic Showgirls. But the star tells In Touch that she feels sexier than ever at age 41 -- and credits much of it to her intense training for Dancing With the Stars with pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
“I’m in the best shape of my life!” she tells In Touch.

As she competes for the coveted DWTS mirror-ball trophy, she makes strides to be healthier. “I take good care of myself. I eat healthy — I know what you put in is how you’re going to feel.” While health is of upmost concern, she reveals to In Touch that weight loss wasn't her primary concern. “I didn’t do DWTS to lose weight,” says Elizabeth. “But it’s a nice benefit!”
