Cobie Smulders decided to ‘take advantage of life’ after her cancer diagnosis. The How I Met Your Mother star got the devastating news when she was just 25. She battled the disease in private, and now the 33-year-old has been cancer free for five years. ‘It caused a huge shift for me,’ she revealed to the American edition of Women’s Health. ‘Like, you know what? I’m just going to do things. I’m going to take advantage of life and enjoy myself and not get so stressed out. And that’s been my mentality ever since.’ Her new outlook on life is probably what led Cobie to pose topless for the publication. On the cover she shows off her flat torso and toned legs, made even more impressive by the fact that she only gave birth to her second child, a son, in January this year.
