4 Celebs That Used Extreme Exercises to Get Fit for a Role

Hollywood movies often present us with very unrealistic beauty standards. Women who are rake thin and caked in glamorous makeup, even though they supposedly just woke up. Men whose muscles are literally bursting out of their tight-fitting white t-shirt.

Lately, people have become a lot more socially aware. And with that new awareness, we have also started to realize just how unhealthy these standards set by the movies really are. Actresses literally starve themselves to make sure they get the role. Actors dehydrate themselves for days on end to make sure their muscles are showing and try to reduce their body fat content as much as possible.

So today we are going to be looking at 4 Clebeirtes that underwent some extreme exercise and diet regimes to get themselves fit for a role. And not always for the better.

 

Chris Hemsworth

We are going to start with a more upbeat story. Chris Hemsworth, the God of Thunder, is known for his stellar body. He is jacked. But it didn’t happen overnight. Far from it. Chris needed to find out how to get a toned stomach and there was only one man for the job.

Chris works with his personal trainer, and longtime friends, Luke Zocchi. Luke is one of the foremost personal trainers in Hollywood, having trained some of the biggest stars for the most amazing roles in cinema history. And Thor is just another name in his repertoire.

Chris takes on some seriously intense exercises. This includes carrying heavy medicine balls as he jumps through literal truck tires. He plays basketball with medicine balls. And adheres to a strict cardio routine that would leave anyone else dead in their tracks.

According to Luke, Chris usually has to put on 20 pounds of pure muscle for the role of Thor. And muscle isn’t permanent. So Christ has to redo his training every time he reprises the role. This is no small feat and shows just how dedicated Chris is to the role.

 

Christan Bale

Christian Bale went in the opposite direction. In the film ‘The Machinist’ Bale played a character who was malnourished and tragically underweight. And to make it authentic, Bale had to lose all the weight until he was almost skeletal. This is one of the more dangerous transformations a Hollywood star has undergone.

According to reports, Bale’s diet consisted of a cup of coffee and an apple a day. Every other meal or snack was replaced with water. It didn’t take long for him to literally shred off the weight. He has since said it was a horrible experience physically, but mentally it was quite enlightening.

What he did after was just as impressive. He managed to put on 100 pounds in six months so he could play the role he is best known for. Batman.

 

Chadwick Boseman

This year we lost a true star in the form of Chadwick Boseman. He sadly succumbed to cancer and left us to move onto the Wakandan afterlife. And he will forever remain in our hearts.

And his dedication to the role of black panther can be seen in his preparation for the role. Unlike other MCU alumni, Boseman needed to achieve a more lean and athletic build, while still showing off some serious muscle. So his exercise regime focused on some extreme cardio workouts mixed with a diet of lean proteins and a lot of fish.

He also received a lot of bruises as he threw himself into three different martial arts courses to make sure he really now the fighting styles his character would be using, along with also giving him a serious workout.

 

Natalie Portman

Blackswan follows a ballerina as she slowly spirals into the darkness of her own mind. And for this role, Natalie Portman had to undergo a serious transformation.

Ballerinas already have one of the strictest diet and exercise routines of any athlete on the planet. They need to stay nimble, flexible, and light-weight at all times. This meant Natalie had to drop twenty pounds. This was while also going through ballet lessons and flexibility classes to make sure she was truly ready for the role.

 

The Hottest Celebrity Restaurants To Eat at in Hollywood!

Hollywood is the land of the stars. Big-name celebrities roaming the streets. Constant movie premiers and fashion shows. Underground clubs filled with the biggest names around. It’s no wonder people are so drawn to this city and all its wonders.

But Hollywood isn’t just famous for its people. It also contains some of the best shops, and more importantly some of the best restaurants on the planet. And why are they the best? Because they are owned by some of the hottest celebrities anywhere. But the one downside to this is that Hollywood has a saturation of celebrity restaurants. And not all of them are fantastic if truth be told.

It’s easy for a celebrity to simply phone it in when it comes to their restaurant quality and assume they will succeed because of who they are. So, to help you avoid the trash, we did the research and found the hottest celebrity restaurants you need to eat when you are next in Hollywood!

 

Au Fudge

Jessica Biel might not be the first name you would associate with food and restaurants. But Au Fudge is one of the highest-rated family-style restaurants in Hollywood. Located in west-Hollywood, away from the louder and more adult-focused areas, Au Fudge has one of the most friendly and inviting atmospheres of any family restaurant ever. It has a fully stocked play-area, that is supervised as well. Both outside and indoor seating.

The menu at Au Fudge is simple, but it is in this simplicity that you find some of the most fantastic flavors and twists on old classics. There is something for everyone and the chefs are happy to accommodate even the fussiest eaters. And you might see a lot of celebrity families eating out here too.

 

Tagine

Ryan Gosling made us fall in love while watching La La Land. And then he made us do it all over again when we ate at Tagine. Ryan is well-traveled, and one of his favorite places to visit in Morocco. He has stated he loves it because of the rich food culture. And he has tried to capture that in Tagine. With old-style decorations and authentic, flavourful food, Tagine truly is one of Hollywood’s best secrets.

We got a chance to walk around the kitchen as well. For any cooking buffs, you will be happy to know that the kitchen is equipped with the best counter depth refrigerator available in 2020 and the finest range of accessories. Anything you can imagine, the kitchen has.

 

Nobu

Robert De Niro is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet. Known for his roles as a rough, tough detective or a mob boss. But you might not know he is the co-owner of one of the most successful restaurant chains on the planet. Nobu is a common name in many American states.

The gimmick of Nobu is the different rooms. Each one set up to match and a certain atmosphere. Calm and relaxed. Mysterious and elegant. Casual dining Whatever mood you are in, Nobu can often accommodate.

And the food is to die for. The menu is made up of tapas-style dishes that encourage a sharing style of eating. It creates a great atmosphere amongst the table and is also some of the nicest food I have personally ever eaten. And for star hunters, Nobu restaurants are known for being celebrity hangouts. So if you want to spot a famous face or two, you need to take a trip down to your local Nobu.

This Kid Is Changing the Art of Close Up Magic Forever!

Many people laugh when they hear people practice close up magic as a hobby. But when they are presented with an outstanding trick they are left in awe and demand to know how it was done! But as we all know, a good magician never reveals their secrets.

And it seems one kid is taking this to the extreme. Damian Aldersmith, a twelve-year-old from Arizona has taken to close up magic like a duck to water. His skills have grown and grown to the point he is giving even the pros a run for their money.

The Trick

Damian has been confounding people with an incredible trick where he manages to make an ordinary magic wand seemingly melt into a viscous goo. Then he reforms the goo into an edible piece of fruit. The trick is incredible enough as it is. But it doesn’t end there.

When you bite into the fruit, you find your own credit card. People are baffled. It is so good it could be actual magic. Penn and Teller are unable to figure it out, which is saying something.

Many people questioned the legitimacy of the wand. But after checking the product reviews at nononsenseninja, they confirmed it is nothing more than a normal wand. No technological trickery is afoot here. Everything that happens is down to Damian’s own natural talent.

Many Vegas casinos have approached him, looking to book him on to a show circuit. But his parents have said he is not allowed to go touring until he has graduated. So we will all have to wait to see Damian perform live. I for one cannot wait for that day and relish the opportunity to see his magic up close and personal.
