On not drinking alcohol ever:
I don’t drink alcohol. I feel [its effects] very quickly, so I’ve never actually had an entire glass of anything alcoholic.
On her celebrity morning routine:
I basically wake up, eat breakfast, and then work out. I prefer to get it done in the morning. That said I don’t naturally get up early. It would be much better for me if the entire world went to bed at 4 am and woke up at noon. But it doesn’t, so I’m usually staggering around first thing.
On her favorite workouts:
Hard-core workouts have really made a big difference in my life. I have a lot of internal energy, and intense exercise helps me channel that energy. I find balance by doing a workout that makes me pour sweat. I never was that girl before, but I am now. I do circuit training interspersed with brutal cardio, such as crazy things on a nonmotorized treadmill. That part is torture. But the thing I like about circuit training is that you’re never doing one thing for very long. You get to the point where you almost can’t bear it, and it changes to something else.
… says 43 year-old Kate.
44 year-old Tracee Ellis Ross, who stars in Black-ish, recently opened up to People Magazine about weight fluctuations, style and not being Hollywood thin.
The full story from People:
“I’ve always been connected to the narrative of clothing,” she says. “My mom taught me that you can spend money on nice things if you’re going to use them. For example, I have an Alexander McQueen jacket that I wear with everything, even sweatpants.”
One of the things she has also learned over the years is stop obsessing over her size despite not being Hollywood thin.
“You know, I am not a sample size,” she says. “I am not a model size. I am small for people and big for an actress. My weight fluctuates a lot and I move with it. It is what it is. That’s why I try not to have a relationship with the size that I am.”
And she deals with the change in her own unique way. “I actually own my favorite jeans in three sizes—28, 29 and 30,” she explains.
“Depending on how I feel, I always start with the big ones and if I get to go down, great,” she says. “It’s the same thing with dresses and clothing. I want to wear something that makes me feel gorgeous, not that makes me feel self-conscious about my body. Hiding insecurities or putting attention on the stuff that feels good is really the key…”
Ultimately, though, when it comes to picking out her looks, she says “there’s no real method to my madness.” All she does, she says, is “ask what is the best thing out of my closet or the best thing on the rack that makes me feel good and fits.”
On being criticized on Instagram for not looking like she did at age 20:
I don’t need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don’t look the same way I did when I was 20. I know that. Sometimes when you’re in the public eye, it can be hard, and that’s where you kind of have to work on yourself. No matter what I do, I’m not going to look 20 or 30. I just want to look great for 50. I exercise, eat healthy and take really good care of my skin. There’s pressure on women to do the undoable, which is not age. But it’s about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is.
Last year, Cindy raised a few eyebrows when she was quoted saying:
I always tease my daughter (14) – who everyone agrees, is a mini-me – and say ‘You have my old hair – I want it back!’ or, ‘You have my old legs – I want them back.’
Step Back in Time: Cindy in her 20s:
At high request, here is a Gisele Bundchen before after comparison – on the left, Gisele and her trademark thin and fit figure back in 2014 and on the right, a much curvier Gisele posing in an electric blue swimsuit with mega cleavage earlier this week.
Playing around between shots, the 36-year-old Brazilian model did a shoot with famous photographer Mario Testino in Rio this week, both in swimwear and bright outfits.

While the topic of Gigi Hadid weight loss is still hot, here’s a new twist – the model’s significant weight loss was not intentional, but caused by a thyroid disease.
On the fact that she never wanted to lose weight and her skinnier figure is the result of a thyroid disease:
“My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto’s disease. It’s a thyroid disease, and it’s now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn’t want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that’s good.”
… says Gigi.
After Gigi made the revelation about her illness, various media sources started to do a little research and pointed out that Hashimoto’s disease causes weight gain, not weight loss – in addition, others said that patients do not experience symptoms major once they get the right treatment, like Gigi has for the past 2 years.
