Rumor has it that the toned beauty Blake Lively doesn’t need to work out or eat right to maintain her Helenian figure; and we can confirm this gossip to be true. The 26-year-old actress was recently asked to reveal her diet and workout regimen to People Magazine.
The answer? “None! I don’t need to have a [trainer] or pay attention to what I eat.” Must be nice.
Don’t take her frank comments as snark or snobbery, she’s been making these claims for a while now. Over a year ago, Lively told The Daily Mail the same thing. Back then, her secret to staying in shape was “Being 25 years old! That and a good metabolism.”
Seemingly aware of the impending decrease in her metabolic function, Lively made no buts about her laissez faire relationship with diet and fitness.
“In a few years, I’ll need to have a new secret, as in an incredibly strict diet regime.” While anybody would love to have Lively’s body type with no maintenance required, it’s important to suspend complete envy. The lifestyle of an actress is such that staying in shape is a fringe benefit. Per People, “I’m always on the go. I’m lucky to have an active lifestyle.” The constant movement, traveling, and training for film shoots and other appearances is sure to burn a ton of calories.
That being said, Lively is no stranger to the gym. To prepare for her role in 2011’s action-adventure film The Green Lantern, she worked with celeb trainer Bobby Strom to get into super shape. Lively did five high-intensity circuit workouts each week and coupled that with healthy eating. Her workout involved crunches, squats, lunges and biceps curls, all done with a five pound weight.
The 5 foot 10 inch starlet should not apologize for her body nor her stellar metabolism. The self-proclaimed foodie works hard, stays active, and is at least aware of her blessings. Lively has been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, filmed cooking demonstrations for Vogue, and even spent a night working as a pastry chef at NYC hot spot Per Se.
Blake Lively got her big break in the film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but nearly 10 years later she doesn’t need a pair of magic pants to squeeze into a tight pair of jeans, and her sisters are probably jealous.
