The Golden Globes are happening this weekend. Do you have any big plans? We certainly do. With a line up of sitcoms and films we absolutely gushed over in 2012, not watching simply isn’t an option. After all, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey – two of our favorite female comedians – are hosting, which is just one more reason to tune in this Sunday to see who takes home gold.
If you’re planning on having a gathering, chances are you’ll need to feed your guests. But just because you’re in party planning mode doesn’t mean you should stress over the menu.
In honor of this year’s Golden Globes we’re dishing up eight healthier recipes inspired by some of our favorite nominees. With a mix of sweet and savory, light and filling, you and your guests will be well fed while tuning in to see who gets crowned Hollywood’s finest talent. (more…)
Stars are rarely more critiqued than they are on awards night. Their hair, their dresses, their performances, their speeches – nothing is safe. That’s true for Angelina Jolie at tonight’s Golden Globes.
During her presentation, Twitter was instantly taken back by her bone-thin arms and “sickly” appearance as one Twitter user posted.
Recently, frightening news has circulated that Jolie, actress recently turned director, was on a 600 calorie per day diet. Photos of her in November, during a trip to Vietnam, revealed stick-like arms hanging from a strikingly thin frame. Sadly, it seems not much has changed since those photos were taken.
Some reports point to her being so busy, between her many professional obligations and as the mother of six young children, that she often doesn’t have time, nor make time, to eat. Skipping meals often leads “what not to do” advice for dieting and weight loss. It can wreck your metabolism, and wreak havoc on your health. (more…)
Ricky Gervais is going to make that tuxedo look pretty good tonight. In 2010, inspired by his girlfriend, Gervais lost more than 20 pounds. He said at the time that it wasn’t about the weight, but instead, “It was more that I was a fat, lazy, out of shape slob, to be honest.”
Nothing could be further from a description of tonight’s Golden Globes host, a gig that requires as much energy as it does personality and thick skin. This will be the British actor’s third go at hosting the awards show, which can foreshadow the upcoming Oscars. He’s brutally honest, but with that brutally entertaining, which is what these often cut-and-paste awards shows can need to hold an audience’s attention. Last year, Gervais’ biggest joke might have been about the collapse of Charlie Sheen; this year, a bounty of Hollywood divorces in recent news could fuel his sharp tongue.
Gervais’ weight loss first made headlines in 2010, when we first reported on it. Fortunately, his focus on fitness hasn’t waned in the past year. At that time, he credited much of his weight loss to the sport of running, something he and his girlfriend Jane Fallon enjoy doing together in their Hampstead Heath, London neighborhood; or, when traveling, he’ll pound the pavement in NYC first thing in the morning.

There are just a few more hours before the red carpet is rolled out and Hollywood’s top stars strut down the walk of fame for this year’s Golden Globe awards. As the cameras roll and pictures are captured, the stars want to be looking their best. Check out what some of the top contenders do to stay “red carpet fit.”
Funny man Ricky Gervais will be hosting this year’s Golden Globes again. While his zingers are what gain him the most attention, he has been noticed for his weight loss this year too. Gervais has dropped about 20 pounds recently. He credits his girlfriend for the success. While attempting to lose weight herself, she began cooking healthier for them both. In addition, Gervais began running. So the tried and true combo of exercising more and eating less has made Gervais ready to look trim in his tux as he notoriously slams celebrities on Sunday night.
The nominees for best performance by an actor in a motion picture include many “A-List” actors including George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brad Pitt. These screen veterans are no strangers to the lime light and they tend to make sure they are camera fit at all times.
George Clooney stays fit by following a balanced diet. He eats high protein foods, lots of fruit and vegetables, and keeps his fat and carb intake low. Clooney’s exercise routine includes aerobics and yoga. Clooney does 90 minute Bikram, or “hot yoga” sessions, even while filming. The hot yoga can speed up metabolism and burn fat faster.
