KellyCarlson Nip/Tuck Stars Fit Tips role preparation fitness tips Nip/Tuck returns to FX tonight with the first of its final nine episodes.  Let’s take a look at what has kept stars Kelly Carlson (Kimber) and Julian McMahon (Dr. Troy) fit for their sexy and scandalous roles.

Kelly on being self conscious…

“I’m pretty comfortable with my body and I work hard at it, but I’m certainly not perfect. It takes some getting used to. And you know what’s funny? I noticed when I go to spas, because I go to spas a lot, if there’s not a private changing room, you see the women kind of going, ‘Go ahead, take off your clothes,’ because they want to see if you really look like you do on television. They’re kind of like, ‘Okay, let’s see your flaws.’”

Is Kimber enhanced on the show?

“They’ll do some post work called color correction, but if you pause any of my nude scenes like if I’m standing up or something, it’s not fixed. I work my ass off on my body.”

How Kelly does it…

“Lots of lifting (light weights and lots of reps), Pilates (which is great for stretching and lengthening muscles), abs and walking. There’s this new vibrating exercise machine called the Power Plate that’s awesome for your core. Madonna uses it…and if she uses it, I’m using it.

How Julian stays fit…

“I’ve always been physical since I was a little kid. I was a rower and a rugby player. Now, I work out, cycle, go for five-mile runs. I hit the outdoors as much as I can. Workouts help with my mental stability, too. Playing Dr. Troy all day long can get pretty exhausting unto itself.”

Post image for Glee Star Naya Rivera Shares How To Look Hot in a Cheerios Uniform

Like her Glee co-star Lea Michele, Naya Rivera always looks fantastically fit on her hit musical comedy. Naya Rivera plays Santana, the manipulative and promiscuous Cheerio and glee club member. Although her character is a bit mean-spirited, the real-life star claims she is more like the Gleeks.

She recently told Fitness magazine, “In high school I was most like Artie and Rachel. I knew what I wanted, like Rachel, although I wasn’t as obnoxious. But like Artie, I was a nerd, always trying to fit in and get my hair to lie flat.”

Also like her Glee co-stars, Naya Rivera gets in a workout during her Glee rehearsals. The cast works 14 to 16 hour days, which includes mastering high-energy dance routines. Check out what else the Glee star told Fitness magazine about her workout and diet!

Post image for The Tourist Star Angelina Jolie Loves Red Meat and Burns Calories Chasing her Kids

The Tourist, starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, hit theaters in 2010. Personally, I can hardly imagine a better pair for the big screen. I am still in love with Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean. And Angelina is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and highly discussed ladies in Hollywood. Some admire Angelina’s slender frame (especially after giving birth to three children), while others think she would look healthier if she gained a few pounds. Although there is rarely a week where Angelina Jolie does not appear in the tabloids, there is not much information out about her workout and diet. Here is what I found!

Diet – Everything in Moderation, Including Red Meat!

Many celebrities have adopted a vegetarian diet. These fit and fabulous celebs include Lea Michele, Lisa Edelstein, Kristin Bell, and Alicia Silverstone. But NOT Angelina Jolie! The famously thin actress gave up her vegan diet years ago, and now attributes her health to eating steak.  [click to continue…]

Hayden Panettiere Stays Fit While Saving Dolphins

A couple weeks ago, The Cove won the Oscar for best Documentary Feature film. In The Cove, Hayden Panettiere, best known for her role in NBC’s Heroes, participates in a protest against the capture and brutal slaughter of whales and dolphins in Japan. Hayden is also spokeswoman for The Whaleman Foundation, whose mission is to protect marine animals from illegal fishing, pollution, and global warming. Although Hayden’s main motivation is saving sea creatures, she says free diving is a great workout.

In order to understand the animals Hayden fights to protect, she took up free diving. Free diving is deepwater swimming without scuba gear, and it is necessary skill for Hayden because scuba gear scares away the whales. Hayden says, “I like the excitement, and it comes in a lot of different ways. Sometimes it’s my work. Sometimes, it’s getting off my butt and feeling like I’ve accomplished something.”

Free diving allows Hayden to get close to the creatures she is fighting to save, and also provides a full body workout. She says, “I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life after a dive.” “Swimming works all your muscles – your core, glutes, quads, even the ones you didn’t know you had, like the little ones in your feet and hands!” Free diving also gets Hayden’s heart rate up. She says, “When you dive with dolphins, you have to swim fast to keep up!”
