There has been subtle, but reassuring change in Hollywood over the last few years. Muscular, fit bodies are replacing waif-like figures on the silver screen and stages everywhere, and we couldn't be happier.
Celebrities like Gweneth Paltrow, have recently come forward to reveal their fitness routines and the honesty is refreshing. No one really thought they could get a body like Madonna's from a few yoga classes did they? That level of fitness, much like Paltrow's, requires an extensive commitment to exercise; starlets are finally admitting that maintaining a Hollywood physique can be a full-time job.
While most American's don't have the time, or desire to log two hours of gym time daily, we can all admit that to get the body we want, we will have to work for it.
Other celebrities have come forth with more realistic lifestyle changes, for example, Kelly Osborne insists she lost over 63 pounds the right way, by eating healthy foods and exercising.
Rather than skipping dinner and taking drugs like the starlets from a few years past, today's stars are doing things the healthy way. Whether it's running, circuit training, kickboxing, swimming or yoga, these hot celebrity bodies didn't just appear out of nowhere.
