Celebrity Secrets That Defy The Effects Of Time

Sofia Vergara 1

hey say that beauty fades as you grow older, but that’s a load of bologna. While sometimes it is in our genetics, we have a certain amount of control over our bodies as we age. True, it’s definitely harder to get that sculpted look, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Some celebrities are shattering that stereotype by working hard and getting the body most of us can only dream about.<

These women are showing that with hard work, you can age just like a fine wine and only get better with time! Granted, most of them do have personal trainers, but it seems like their secrets aren’t so secret after all. They were nice enough to explain what they eat and their exercise routine so maybe we can get that amazing beach body we always wanted.

Sofia Vergara (47) has multiple trainers that keep her body fit and healthy. She works out five times a week for an hour or more. Another one of Vergara’s trainers solely work on her glutes – lots of squats and lateral raises. Her workout routine isn’t for the faint of heart, but it does provide results.

Vergara may look like she doesn’t eat anything unhealthy, but she’s known to have an especially strong sweet tooth. While she says she eats a lot of fruit and vegetables, she also eats desserts during the weekend. The one thing she does stay away from is salt because she states it makes her eyes look puffy the following day.

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale is perhaps best known for her romantic roles in films like Pearl Harbor and Serendipity, as well as action roles such as the Underworld film series. Occasionally, doing some modeling, she has managed to maintain an excellent figure throughout her life, despite being 47 years old.

According to New Beauty, to stay in shape, she works out often and eats plenty of protein including chicken, eggs and salmon. And of course, she eats her greens too. All of it seems to be paying off.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria (45) clearly knows where the fountain of youth is, especially since she recently had a baby. What happened to all the baby weight? She worked it off! First, she gave her body time to adjust to postpartum and post-pregnancy. When she was ready to start exercising again, she focused on cardio. She would go out for a run in the morning but followed it up with a healthy breakfast.

Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz’s (46) workout routine was a lot stricter before having a baby, and now, it’s all about Bikram yoga for 90 minutes for a few times a week. She still does traditional workouts with personal trainer Gunnar Peterson. Even those exercises are geared toward dance routines and strength training.Â

Penelope Cruz isn’t one to make things complicated. Her diet consists of eating foods that make her feel good and nixing things that don’t. She relies on self-control to keep herself strong and healthy. Normally, she eats plenty of lean proteins, whole grains, fresh veggies, and nuts. It’s no surprise that this beauty adores avocados, too.

Halle Berry

Those abs don’t come easy! Halle Berry (53) loves to MMA train and uses kettlebells. On top of that, she embraced the keto diet. Berry has been a diabetic most of her life, so she’s always taken food very seriously.

Berry has said, “if you’re like me, you can possibly reverse type 2 diabetes, you’ll experience better physical endurance, better sick, and also less acne if that’s an issue.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt (41) steals the red carpet every time she walks out. To maintain her body, she exercises a lot. In fact, she considers exercise to be her hobby because she loves it so much. It doesn’t matter what kind – HIIT, strength training, cardio – she loves it all. Since it’s her hobby, she works out all the time, every day of the week.

Hewitt tries not to keep bad foods in her fridge because it’s easier than self-control. Since she only eats 1500 calories a day, there’s a lot of stuff she can’t eat. Her diet consists of high-protein, low-carb meals, like avocado and tuna salad. As for snacks, she grabs fruit since it’s low-calorie and highly nutritious. She also completely eliminated alcohol and dairy from her diet.

Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek’s  figure seems unattainable, especially since she’s regarded as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. The first tip she offers? Keep a good posture. Keeping your body upright forces your muscles to work all day long. She also does short but regular HIIT or cardio workouts seven days a week for 30 minutes or less.

Hayek is a big proponent of juicing. From a young age, she’s loved making her own juice with organic fruits and vegetables. Since she’s a foodie and avid cook, she doesn’t restrict herself. Diets aren’t really her thing, but moderation helps keep her waist thin.


Shakira 9

Shakira’s  hips don’t lie – working out is extreme for her. To keep a figure like her, she works out six days a week on top of tons of dance rehearsals. Her fitness routine follows the same structure, but she switches it up to keep things fresh. While some days she focuses on HIIT, other days she does circuit classes.

Being a mom of two, it’s hard to see how she has so much time! Eating is much more consistent with a parent – she eats small meals throughout the day. Balance is essential to maintaining her figure, so she only eats fresh and healthy meals, excluding anything with sugar or dairy. Shakira is still known to have a cheat day here and there, though

Elizabeth Hurley

Elizabeth Hurley  was the dream woman of the ‘90s, and not much has changed. She’s still looking good, and that’s thanks to her exercise and diet plan. Hurley doesn’t have a strict exercise routine but stays active throughout the day. On weekends, she’ll go for long hikes with her dogs and stretch every day. Occasionally, she’ll go to a yoga or Pilates class as well as doing stomach, arm, and butt exercises at home.

Hurley prioritizes water throughout the day. She wakes up and has two glasses and follows it up by drinking water throughout the day. Processed foods are also a huge no-no. She’d rather have something simple, natural, fresh, and easy. In her own words, “When I’m at home in the country, I always try and eat food that’s grown locally. That goes for meats and vegetables.

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford’s (54) go-to exercise is equal parts cardio and strength training, with 20 minutes of cardio (trampoline, treadmill, or elliptical) and then weights. She also enjoys going to a pole dancing class with her friends. Crawford tries to squeeze in a workout at least three times a week.

Then there’s her diet. She has one strict rule: no processed food. Diet-wise, she doesn’t eat “crap” and she “doesn’t eat a lot of packaged foods.” She’ll go for a protein shake for breakfast, salad for lunch, and something healthy for dinner.
