Scarlett Johansson Iron Man 2 Workout

Iron Man 2 opened last Friday and brought in over $130 million in box office sales, putting it at #5 for top grossing opening weekends of all time.  The blockbuster action flick’s all-star cast certainly spent a lot of time in the gym preparing for their roles.  We’ve already reviewed Robert Downey Jr.’s workout and the diet and fitness plan Gwyneth Paltrow used to tone up for the big screen.  Today, we take a look at the training Scarlett Johansson did to squeeze into her catsuit for her role as Black Widow.

On commitment…
“There is no magic wand to wave over oneself to look good in a latex catsuit. Eating healthy and getting fit is about commitment, determination, consistency and the dedication to self-preservation,” Johansson wrote in a letter to the Huffington Post.

Staying active while busy…
“Pull ups, crunches, lunges, squats, jumping jacks, planks, walking, jogging and push ups are all exercises that can be performed without fancy trainers or gym memberships. I’ve realized through this process that no matter how busy my life may be, I feel better when I take a little time to focus on staying active,” said Scarlett

From the trainer…
SELF Magazine caught up with Johansson’s trainer Bobby Strom, who also trains her husband Ryan Reynolds, to get some details on the workout routine the actress used.  “No workout was ever exactly the same because I didn’t want her to get bored. I wanted to keep her in a place where she wanted to do more,” he says. “I was having her do a lot of balance, coordination, and core work, but what she really loved was the strength training–things like pullups and kettlebells–and the idea of feeling and looking strong,” said Strom.

What could be better than one Bravo reality TV star helping another Bravo reality TV star lose weight in a reality TV boot camp? Well, that is exactly what you will see when you watch Bravo’s new show Thintervention with Jackie Warner.

Beverly Hills trainer Jackie Warner, of Workout fame, attempts to transform the bodies and lives of seven clients, including Real Housewife of Orange County Jeana Keough. If you are a Real Housewives fan you probably have doubts about Jeana’s success, but Jackie’s program is very intense. The clients make over their kitchens, run up hills wearing 20 pound vests, and even attend therapy. The show is full of drama, comedy, and plenty of emotion.

Vegetarian and Vegan Celebrities, like Alicia Silverstone, Use Meal Delivery Services

Let’s face it, it can be difficult to eat healthy all the time. Not every one has the time to buy a variety of ingredients and  prepare their own meals without repeating the same recipes over and over. This is even more difficult if you’re a vegetarian or a vegan. Celebrity vegetarians (and celebrity vegans) face this same difficulty.

However, there is hope – at least if you live in Southern California (for those living elsewhere see below) – thanks to home delivery services like Vegin’ Out. Even celebrities are flocking to delivery services, like Vegin’ Out.

Andy Dick

“These guys are awesome! The service fits perfectly into my schedule which is erratic and ever changing, just like my personality. Believe it or not, this food centers me and it’s always healthy and delicious. And the cookies are killer!”

Alicia Silverstone

“I love Vegin’ Out, it’s so yummy! Even if you’re not vegan, give it a try, cause who wouldn’t want delicious healthy food all prepared and brought right to your doorstep! It’s so convenient, I don’t even have to think about it, and I’m always looking forward to tasting the original dishes they’re constantly creating. Oh and you must taste the cookies! Try them once and you’ll be hooked!”
