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’.

Reese Witherspoon: “I don’t think I need plastic surgery at this point.” PLUS: ‘This Means War’ REVIEW!

The stunning Reese Witherspoon covers the March issue of Glamour UK. She’s promoting her new film, ‘This Means War’. The photo shoot alongside the article is stunning. Reese looks better than ever!

She has two children, a husband and a very successful career – and she’s only in her 30′s! While the 35-year-old actress says that she doesn’t want any plastic surgery right now, she doesn’t know what the future will hold!

On plastic surgery:

“I’m not for it. I’m not against it. I have plenty of friends who do stuff and if it makes you feel good, great. But I don’t think it’s the fix for some sort of unease that you’re having about who you are as a human being. I don’t think I need plastic surgery at this point. Can we just go day-by-day on that one?”

On showing off her body in her new film:

She explains: “I don’t worry about it. I have the body I earned. I had two kids and I’m still strong and healthy.
And you start to have a different respect for your body the older you get. Instead of tearing yourself apart all the time, you start to go “Oh wow”.”

On being frugal(ish):

Despite earning millions of dollars per movie, Witherspoon admits she can be quite frugal when it comes to shopping.
Although she recently splashed out on a black Valentino bag, she revealed she can’t bring herself to buy an expensive bag from The Row - Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion label.

“I have this fixation about this black leather The Row purse, but it’s so prohibitively expensive, I will not allow myself to buy it. I literally go to the store to visit it. Too much money – it feels decadent. I can’t wrap my brain around it. If I bought it, I’d only feel upset about it and take it back. However, she justified her purchase of the Valentino bag, because ‘it’s super-plain and beautiful and just feels like something you’ll have forever’.”

I just love her! There’s nothing I don’t like about her!

Erin and I went and saw an early screening of ‘This Means War’ last night – and I have to tell you – we absolutely LOVED it. I was really not expecting that. I don’t think the trailer is very good, and the whole premise just seemed so … lame. But it wasn’t! It was such a fun movie! I laughed – hard – and wasn’t expecting to! The chemistry between the three at the center of the movie is believable! There’s definitely a lot of cheese in this movie, and I rolled my eyes more than once, but I didn’t mind. It was a super fun movie, and I enjoyed every minute of it! PS: Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are HOT in it! Reese looks better than ever in this movie – her clothes were to die for! Chelsea Handler was hilarious. All the pieces just really fit together perfectly to make a really fun movie. It’s not going to win any awards – but I would definitely say it’s worth paying to see. Fun movie!
