I Want A Celebrity Body

Dear Sugar
You know so much about stars - so I wanted to ask you if you knew how often celebrities usually exercise? They all (well, most of them) look so good. I exercise pretty often, but I can't seem to get as toned as they get. Have you got any advice for me? Slim Shaney

Dear Slim Shaney
Celebs are under heightened pressure to look good all of the time because they are getting photographed all of the time. You can't even begin to compare yourself to them. They've got the help of personal trainers, nutritionists and cooks.

You've got to think about the basics. Hard work=success. How hard are you workin it at the gym? How well do you eat? And do you get enough water and rest? Staying in shape, takes serious discipline.

If you say you are working out, but you are really checking POPSUGAR AND DEARSUGAR on your blackberry and flipping through InStyle while chillin on the elliptical, and then gobbling down a cheeseburger with fries because you think you've done your job, you're never going to look like the new and improved Janet Jackson.

Some of its genetics; and those blessed with a high metabolism definitely don't have to work as hard as others, but mostly it's about regimen. Don't compare yourself to the stars, just work with what g-d gave ya. Jessica Alba is definitely busting her perfect butt more than Tom Hanks to get those results!

Jessica Alba is completely overrated, but her body IS incredible as others have mentioned. I want to have a chef make me raw foods and a trainer 6 days a week. It would make my life easier. You can't NOT show up for your workout if your trainer is waiting for you.
