Pink covers Shape Magazine, talks about her 55 pounds weight loss!

Pink covers the November issue of Shape Magazine, and on the cover she shows off her insane weight loss. I guess I didn’t realize she had much weight to lose, but I guess after giving birth to her daughter back in June 2011, the singer had 55 pounds to shed. She said she took her time losing it, but she finally did, and by the looks of this cover – it certainly paid off!

Pink‘s tough-as-nails attitude has softened a little bit up since giving birth to daughter Willow Sage in June 2011 — but her body has only gotten more rock solid. The 33-year-old, who is married to motocross racer Carey Hart, gained 55 pounds during her pregnancy, indulging on her favorite sweet treats.

“I hate a lot of cheesecake during those nine months,” she told Shape magazine. “Also, anything sour; Sour Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, key lime pie.”

But eight weeks after giving birth — she didn’t want to “rush” back into losing weight — she started training with celebrity trainers Jillian Michaels and Jeanette Jenkins.

“They both kicked my butt more than any other person I’ve worked out with,” she said. “The’re both amazing, and their bodies were all the inspiration I needed to get back into shape.”

Pink’s routine changed up every day, but always included a heavy dose of cardio and a lot of strength training. She did interval treadmill routines, power yoga, and kickboxing. She only sees Jeanette five days a week now, but says she’s gotten “great results.”

The proud mom also feeds herself and her family a mostly vegan diet, with green favorites such as arugula and asparagus, and healthy carbs including cous cous and brown rice. There’s no denying the singer is in amazing shape, but she insists being a mom is what makes her happiest.

“It’s just pure joy for Carey and me. Willow has made us more fun — we’re this cool little threesome,” she gushed.

Pink also confessed to her previous “wild child” ways – she started smoking at just nine-years-old and overdosed in a nightclub at the age of 15.

“I was 9 [when I started smoking]. By the time I turned 12 I was smoking a pack a day. I quit when I got pregnant. Unlike before [Willow was born], cigarettes smell repulsive to me.”

As for the drugs, she took as a teen: “I was into ecstasy, Special K, crystal meth, acid – you name it.”

I like how she says she only sees the trainer “five days a week now”. ONLY!? That’s insane.

Her body looks amazing!

Keira Knightley and Rooney Mara cover the 40th Anniversary issue of W Magazine!

27-year-old Keira Knightley is the face of the 2000s in the special 40th Anniversary issue of W Magazine. For her cover, Keira wore a Chanel jacket, and platinum blonde hair.

Talking about trends from the last decade she dislikes, she said: ‘I think skinny jeans and micro-miniskirts are very unfriendly.

‘I’ve been known to wear both, but on some days it seems like they were invented to make you feel bad about yourself.’

Despite being cast as a modern girl by the magazine, she spent months parading around in a corset for forthcoming Tolstoy adaptation Anna Karenina.

But despite starring in a string of blockbusters, Keira also revealed she prefers more offbeat fare when she munches on popcorn.

She said: ‘I have two (favourite films). The Beat that My Heart Skipped is a French film that I’ve watched again and again.

‘It’s so rough and yet still kind of beautiful. I love the juxtaposition of serenity and violence.

‘And My Life Without Me is understated and heartbreaking. The fact that the main character doesn’t tell anyone she’s very ill, it just gets me every time.’

Rooney Mara also appeared in the magazine.

Halle Berry’s stunning InStyle cover!

Halle Berry lands the cover of November’s InStyle magazine, and she looks absolutely gorgeous! She looks stunning in a tight red cutout dress, looking hotter than ever (she just gets better with age!).

In the interview, Halle talks about her custody battle with her ex Gabriel Aubrey. She desperately wants to move her daugther Nahla to France, where her fiance Olivier Martinez lives. She claims she wants to remove Nahla from the constant presence of the paparazzi.

Here’s more via Celebitchy:

On why she wants to move to France
“It’s the appeal of privacy and a greater sense of safety for Nahla. I don’t want her to grow up around the tabloids. Because we are followed all the time, she is starting to feel like she is somehow special, and of course she is, but I want her to understand that she’s special because of who she is, not because she was born into this celebrity blender.”

On her custody battle
“There is turbulence, bit this too shall pass.”

On her wedding plans:
“I do know it will be very small. I haven’t been to many weddings, but I went to one this weekend with 250 guests. I thought, Wow – so this is a wedding, huh? I’ve never had that, nor have I wanted that. I wasn’t even trying to catch the bouquet!”

On her fiance Olivier Martinez:
“When I first met Olivier, there wasn’t the initial ‘I’m in love!’ It was something that grew more gradually—and it feels more real because of that. [Marriage] is another one of those never-say-never things. I’m a hopeless romantic, and I won’t stop till I get it right!”

“He’s silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me. Danny Downer … been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!”

On aging in Hollywood:
“Throughout my career I have been talked out of things I wanted to do, and when I look back I think, I should have followed my instincts. I relied on others to guide me because I thought they knew better. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to trust myself. Don’t stress about your age or fight it. Appreciate the young women who look like you once did, but don’t strive to be like them. You’re moving into a new phase of your life—embrace it. That’s what I hope to do.”

On not being defined by her hairstyle:
“I think I am at my best when my hair is short. It’s easier to take care of and more of who I am. Women are conditioned to think we need long hair. I see that happening with my daughter. She is so in love with her hair right now. She says, ‘Look, Mommy—it’s so long!” As women, we think it defines us, and we learn that at a young age.”

I think it’s a great interview, and she seems very open and honest. Whether or not she’s being entirely honest about the moving to France situation, meh…. who knows. I think she wants away from her ex more than she wants to be away for Nahla’s sake. But who knows.


Ashley Greene opens up about how ‘Twilight’ changed her in the new Marie Claire.

Ashley Greene covers the November issue of Marie Claire, and inside the magazine she has lots to say about ‘Twilight’ and how it’s changed who she is. The actress reveals how she’s dealing with her newfound fame, and more importantly how she copes with it.

“It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day,” the 25-year-old “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ star tells the magazine. “But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie ["Twilight"] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.”

But although some of her pals couldn’t deal with her blossoming career, Greene says she understands that it’s hard to keep in touch with people when you’re always traveling or on location.

“I’m always here and there — everyone in my industry is — and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting,” she explains. “I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish.”

As for her love life, Greene says that’s a struggle too, considering she doesn’t have enough time to devote to romance.

“You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie,” she says. “It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”

As for how she’s adjusting to her life in the spotlight, Greene admits stardom has its perks, including first-class plane tickets.

“‘Twilight’ has ruined me,” Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the hit franchise, reveals. “When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost.”

Still, the money she saves from those international flights will go toward maintaining her new life.

“I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save,” she says. “And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”

I’ve met Ashley a couple times, and she is shockingly beautiful. She’s tiny and her skin looks like porcelain. She is beyond nice….seems like a really good person. She looks gorgeous in Marie Claire as well!
