Fergie Drops 17 Lbs

After putting on 17 pounds for the movie Nine, Fergie learned it takes a lot longer to lose weight than it does to gain. Yes, it’s very true. Apparently, Fergie really has been “working on her fitness”….after a free for all with Salma Hayek on the set of Nine. Fergie says, “We were eating our brains out. We ordered everything fried and full of fat and salty.”

The extra poundage is nowhere to be seen on Fergie’s gorgoeus bikini cover shot, and the singer credits working out with her hot husband’s trainer for getting her super-toned body back. In her interview for its May issue of Allure, Fergie said,”If I don’t do sit-ups, my stomach sticks out. Legs are easy for me. That’s my lucky spot.”

Well, it’s a little reassuring to know that taut tummy doesn’t come without hard work. Do you have one area that you can count on to look good without much effort, like Fergie and her stems? And gifted gams they are….

The Runaways Features Twilight Star

Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett

Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett

I am super psyched to see that Kristen Stewart is playing Joan Jett in the new movie, The Runaways, a coming of age flick depicting the band of same name.

 Dakota Fanning is slated to play Cherie Curie. This promises to be a real bag of fun.

The film features the raucus group of 16 year old girls that comprised the original band.

The Runaways was Joan Jett’s first band, and featured singer Lita Ford, played by Alessandra Toressani. Hits like Cherry Bomb made this band an iconic punk band of the 70’s.

 

The movie will definitley rock. As will the music. I have been a fan for over a decade. Yay! Film is scheduled to release in 2010.

LOVE Kathy Griffin!

“It turns out that I have a way hotter body than she does, and that’s been tough for her.” So says Kathy Griffin of Paris Hilton. You go Kathy for being a total cougar. Word up.

Sandra Bullock Diet and Exercise

Looking chiseled, as usual

Looking chiseled, as usual

Sandra Bullock, always charmingl-y candid and real, reveals her reasons and methods for staying in shape, and gives us insight to what her cheat day looks like.  Always one to be honest, it sounds like, just like everyone else, there is no magic pill or secret weight loss miracle. Being extremely active with lots of cardio and weight training, and a super clean diet is the key to her amazing figure, even in her 40’s!

Highlights of the interview:

I read once you have a “cheat day” once a week when you eat whatever you want. Do you still follow that rule?

  

How do you stay in shape?

  

What do you tell a girl who feels ugly because she’s not blond or doesn’t have a thin nose

 

“Welcome to my broken nose! [Her sister accidentally broke it while lifting a garage door when they were younger.] …I was rejected in school because I didn’t look like the big-breasted, beautiful girls. I was awkward and sad. My mother always said, “Be original!” but I didn’t understand until I changed to be like everyone else. Once I fit in, I was like, What have I done? I realized that my friends before were much cooler, with a great sense of humor and a way of looking at the world that was more fun. But if I hadn’t gone through that, I wouldn’t have been driven to make my oddities cool. It’s what made me have a sense of humor and thick skin. It’s like in All About Steve—I’m making fun of everything people have judged me for and put it into one character.”

“People ask, “How do actresses do it?” Um, they pay us to do this in order to look good on film. I do Pilates, kickboxing, weight training. When I’m in Austin, I run or ride a bike. If I can work out every day, I will. But there are times when I won’t do anything for two weeks, and I’m, like, you know what? I talk enough to burn calories.”

“I start Friday night and I end Saturday night. But it is not so regimented. I’ll make lists of what I want to eat this week or next week. I was in the store Marfa and they had this dark chocolate with bacon in it so I’ve gotta try that! I eat really well because I can afford to. Like last night I had brown rice and black beans and some steamed vegetables so today I’m going to have all kinds of good stuff! I love sweets, like Viennese pastry, raw cookie dough, or a nice bowl of Lucky Charms with milk that I eat in bed watching SNL. That’s heaven right there!”

Once again, refreshing to know that even girls like Sandy break down and scarf cookie dough every once in a while. Just so long as it’s once a week, and in reasonable moderation. I am looking forward to my cheat day already. Haha
