It's no secret that Helen Mirren has a hot bod, but how she stays trim certainly is.
The Queen actress, who turns 69 on Saturday, revealed that when she needs to tighten up her waistline she actually follows a Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan... from the 1950s!
"I'm not very fit at all actually. Just this morning I started my exercises, which I haven’t been doing for months, maybe years. I do a thing that leads me into exercise. It is the Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan; it is 12 minutes and they have charts you follow… Each day, you have to do the exercises within the 12 minutes and until you can, you can’t move up," Mirren recently told reporters, according to her publicist.
"It is the exercise I have done off and on my whole life. It just very gently gets you fit. Two weeks of doing that and you think: 'Yeah, I could go to the gym now.'"
Yes, the trendy dame was well ahead of the bootcamp craze that has been popping up in gyms worldwide over the past year.
Whether or not she'll own up to her svelte figure or not, if this 1950s Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan is what is doing the trick, sign us up!
Prince George is a little man on the move.
Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal tot has officially mastered the art of walking ahead of his first birthday on Tuesday and the proud Brits made sure to share his rapid progress. Clarence House released an official photo from the United Kingdom Press Association on Twitter on Sunday where the Buckingham baby showed off his new skill.
In the photo, Prince George, clad in a pair of blue pinstripe overalls, a navy blue polo shirt, and matching navy booties, had his arms widespread for balance as he tottered around the Sensational Butterflies exhibition at London's Natural History Museum on July 2.
Clarence House captioned the snap, "Look who's walking! Here's our little Prince ahead of his 1st birthday on 22nd July #HappyBirthdayPrinceGeorge."
The photograph, taken by photographer John Stillwell, is reportedly one of three pictures that will be released prior to Monday to celebrate George's big milestone.
At this rate, Prince William and Kate Middleton are sure to have their hands full as Prince George takes on his next year!
Gyllenhaal, 36, wore the lackluster look first for an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in June 2013 as she promoted her film, White House Down . Diaz, 41, donned the painted disaster more than a year later at the New York City premiere of her flick, Sex Tape.
Cleary we feel like the frock belongs in an art museum and not on an A-list actress. That being said, the two women styled the look rather differently. Let's see how they compare.
What they wore: A Vionnet Pre-Fall 2013 mid-sleeved silk wrap dress with dip-dyed shades of pink, powder blue, forest green, and black.
How they styled it: Cameron kicked things off up top with a set of polished curls worn in a center part. She continued her soft and sweet look with a dusting of pink blush and pink lip gloss and kept the rest of her makeup simple with highlighter along her eyes. She added a bit of bling with diamond hoop earrings and a simple necklace.
Maggie also went for a summery look but chose a dramatic combination of bright pink lip gloss, pink blush, and smoky eyes. She kept her coif natural and didn't bother with any jewelry.
The full look:
The actress, who's currently appearing on Two and a Half Men , got engaged to her boyfriend of nearly two years, Stephen Ringer, on July 8.
The 25-year-old star revealed the happy news via social media after hinting to her fans to #lookcloser at a recent Instagram snap with her sister and 78violet band mate, AJ Michalka, where she was wearing a new bauble on a very important finger. After her fans failed to catch the hint, Michalka made the big debut herself and shared a gorgeous shot of her new bling with the caption, "So this happened ….. 7/8."
She followed it up with a post on Twitter.
Her ring has a vintage feel to it and features a dazzling solitaire diamond. The new sparkler looked particularly pretty against her half-tip red manicure.
The pair surely will have plenty more milestones to toast to in the future.
The longtime lovebirds, who tied the knot three years ago today on Richard Branson's Necker Island estate, are celebrating their anniversary with some exciting news: They are expecting another baby!
The 98 Degrees crooner, 40, took to Twitter to share the monumental announcement and posted a photo of their son Camden, 1, playing on a beach next to a sand drawing of a heart with the words "It's a girl" written inside.
He accompanied the sweet snap with a message about his beautiful wife and family, " Can't think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful @VanessaLachey than this! #family."
Prior to welcoming their son in September 2012, Lachey opened up to Yahoo about his wife and how she knew would be a wonderful mother.
"She is great with kids …she is very nurturing. I think she'll be a phenomenal mom."
The duo did not reveal a due date for their baby girl, but it sounds like there will be plenty of love in the family when she arrives.
Less than two weeks after tying the knot with her longtime love, Eric Johnson, in a lavish ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch, Jessica Simpson is settling into married life one sexy snap at a time.
The new bride, 33, shared a sizzling black and white snap — presumably from her honeymoon — where she is posing seductively in a printed one-piece swimsuit with one hand holding a cocktail and the other on her oversized sunglasses. She titled the picture, "Mrs. Johnson."
The singer-turned-fashion designer hasn't officially changed her surname on her social media accounts, but it looks like she'll be switching up her moniker on a personal level. During her marriage to former 98 Degrees crooner Nick Lachey, Simpson did change her legal name to Jessica [Simpson] Lachey, but kept her maiden name for publicity purposes.
Nothing gets between the Moss sisters and their Calvins.
Kate Moss's half-sister, Lottie, 16, is the spitting image of her supermodel big sis in a new ad campaign as the brand ambassador for Calvin Klein Jeans.
In the black and white shots for the brand's capsule campaign with My Theresa — titled the Re-Issue Project — the blue-eyed, blond-haired cutie is posing in a series of iconic CK looks, much like the ones her sister modeled 21 years prior.
In the photographs shot by Michael Avedon, Richard Avedon's grandson, Lottie is rocking a classic logo T-shirt, a sports bra and jeans, and a hoodie and a jean jacket. The British teen, who was signed by Storm Models, the same agency that discovered Kate at New York City's JFK airport at the tender age of 14, showed she's got the same talent as she mugged for the cameras with a series of pouty stares.
If these images look at all familiar, it's because Kate got her big break as the designer's brand ambassador nearly 21 years ago in a similar set of shots. The now-40-year-old model shares the same piercing eyes and pouty lips as her little sib.
The X Factor UK judge, 31, revealed on Sunday that she tied the knot with her boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini on July 7. The notoriously private star shared the happy news via social media along with a picture of her stunning engagement ring and wedding band.
She wrote, "I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news... Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14… We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together."
Details on their nuptials remain short, but rumors are swirling that the lovebirds married in an intimate beachside ceremony on the island of Mustique.
The duo's race to the altar was certainly speedy. The "Girls Aloud" singer and Fernandez-Versini began dating in April and made their first public appearance together at Cannes Film Festival in May. Cole was previously married to professional soccer star Ashley Cole. They divorced in 2010 following reports that he had cheated.
Tying the knot capped off a great couple of weeks for the popstar. She celebrated her birthday on June 30 and recently released the video for her new single, "Crazy Stupid Love."
The Glee actress, 27, tweeted a touching message on Sunday about her late boyfriend one year after his tragic death.
She posted a photo of Monteith, where she is nuzzled into his chest and turned away while he is looking at the camera. The pair, who dated for a little over a year after meeting on set in 2009, appeared to be on a beach enjoying the sunset in the photo.
We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/deA4PQUZNz
Michele's Twitter message was re-tweeted by Chris Colfer and thousands of others.
Monteith's family and Glee co-stars also took to Twitter to remember the talented actorh. Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room after an overdose from heroin and alcohol on July 13, 2013. He was 31 at the time of his death.
Matthew Morrison, Dot-Marie Jones, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Jenna Ushkowitz tweeted heartfelt notes about the thespian, who played Finn Hudson, on the hit show.
The sexy duo hit the beach in Cancun, Mexico, on Friday and looked every inch the couple in love.
The fit actress, 33, strutted her stuff in a strapless black and white cheetah print bikini and held hands with her sweetie as they strolled down the beach. Warren, 35, looked hunky in a pair of neutral trunks and was all smiles during their walk.
Later, the Machete Kills continued to show off her enviable bod (and those amazing abs!) as she splashed around in the waves and dipped her hair in the warm water.
While the parents, who share daughters Honor, 6, and Haven, 2, looked like they were enjoying a little alone time on the beach, their Mexican getaway was a family affair.
Warren posted a sweet snap of one of his gals against in a silhouette juxtaposed against the aquamarine waters and titled the photo, "We have arrived #paradise #familyvacation2014."
He also shared a funny photo of their hotel suite bathtub filled with bubbles and balloons and captioned it, "Ok ok. You can bring your Mermaid Barbie Dolls too #GiveAnInchTheyTakeaMile #FamilyVacation2014."
The practical dad obviously has a sense of humor about constantly being surrounded by women.
