How Olivia Wilde Got in Shape For Tron: Legacy

Olivia Wilde Covers Women's Health: "When You Feel Like You're Going to Die . . . Keep Going."

Like BuzzSugar, we were blown away while watching Tron: Legacy this weekend, one reason being Olivia Wilde, who portrays the female lead, Quorra, in the film. For the entirety of the film, Olivia is in a skintight black bodysuit; she looks amazing in it and shows off some pretty awesome fight moves, too. Recently, Olivia gave a Twitter shout-out to trainer Patrick Murphy for getting her "ripped like a racehorse" and also sat down with Women's Health to share how she got in shape for the film. Here are the highlights:

  • On getting into shape for Tron: "I worked with a personal trainer, so I did about an hour of cardio five or six days a week, weight training three times a week, mixed martial arts/fighting three times a week, and that's a lot more than my normal [routine]!"
  • On balancing life with maintaining her figure: "Striving for physical perfection takes a lot of energy. For me it's important to come home from work, cook a meal with my husband, and spend the afternoon reading a book, instead of always running around."
  • On keeping up in spin class: "When you feel like you're going to die . . . keep going."
