Anne Hathaway: “I’d rather be strong than skinny”

Does Anne Hathaway deal with body image issues? According to US Weekly, Hathaway reveals “When people refer to me as a ‘regular’ girl…it’s code word for ‘fat’ in Hollywood.”

Even though she claims the public isn’t easy on her when it comes to weight, she says “My body has chosen its shape. I’d rather be strong than skinny.”

I’m not even sure where these comments are coming from. I’ve never once heard that she’s “fat” or even slightly heavy. Maybe I’m missing something. She has a great body!

Caffeine-infused tights that reduce cellulite while you wear them?

Look what I came across today! While surfing around, I saw an ad for Skin Kiss tights.  Apparently, they are tights that are impregnated with microcapsules of caffeine to break down cellulite. Women wear the tights daily for a three week period, and during that time, wearers have reported a 2cm reduction on each thigh, and their skin appeared smoother!

Speaking about the product, a spokesperson for the UK brand said: ‘The demand that we have seen for these tights is truly unprecedented.

‘The technology and clinical tests have shown positive results.’

But due to the ‘technical sophistication’ of the product, the spokesperson added that the tights – priced at  £25.48.for a pack of three – are ‘by no means cheap’.

These revolutionary tights use caffeine as an active ingredient, which is introduced into the fibre using micro capsules and the body temperature causes them to act on the skin. Wearing SKIN KISS on a daily basis for up to 28 days, it has been shown that the caffeine can reduce the thigh measurement by up to 2 cm and tightens the tissue of the legs in particular. Further results seen are smoother and suppler skin, improvement of the skin elasticity, visibly improved appearance of the skin and comfort.

Dermatological tested. The effect lasts up to 5 washes.

Elizabeth Banks reveals the secrets to her amazing body in the new ‘Women’s Health’ magazine!

Elizabeth Banks always looks amazingly beautiful, and the actress says she works hard to keep it that way. The 37-year-old actress reveals her grueling fitness regime in the March issue of Women’s Health Magazine.

In the interview, Elizabeth reveals the secret to her figure, explaining the great lengths she goes to to stay in shape.

“I do this system called TRX. It was developed by a Navy SEAL and is basically a simple cord that you can wrap around something anywhere, anytime, and you use your body weight as resistance,” she explains.

“We installed one in our home gym, but you can also attach it to a tree. It’s very easy to travel with.”

She does, however, let herself indulge in her favorites from time to time. “Pimm’s and ginger ale. Makes me very happy,” she says.

She also reveals her food vices, which include cupcakes, cheese, pesto, bread and cookie dough.

The actress admits that her looks often used to get in the way of getting certain roles.

‘I’m grateful for my career, but there’s a level of dissatisfaction that keeps me going,’ she says. ‘I’m always looking for challenges. I’m open to anything. I get out of the way of all plans.’

Before she became famous, Banks said that she used to do a little bit of modelling, but hardly enjoyed the job.

‘I did a little modeling, almost exclusively for the Petite Sophisticate catalog – not very glamorous. But it paid a lot of bills, and we got go to Miami in the winter,’ she explains.

Banks is about to star in the upcoming surefire hit The Hunger Games as escort tribute Effie Trinket.

She can currently be seen in the thriller Man On A Ledge and is part of the star studded cast of What To Expect When You’re Expecting, which will be released later this year in May.

I love Elizabeth. She is hilarious, and I can’t wait to see her in ‘Hunger Games’.
