  • Michelle Rodriguez's bikini body secret? Be an action star

    FOX 411 | Editor

    Michelle Rodriguez in 2007 (l) and today (r).

    “Fast and Furious” star Michelle Rodriguez has never been what anyone would call out of shape. But in these before and after pictures, you see the action star’s body has gone from plain nice to superhuman in the last five years.

    How? Being in bad-ass movies, that’s how.

    Rodriguez loves outdoor adventures and high intensity workouts, especially when they are linked to her movie roles. Rodriguez, 33, fell in love with boxing while preparing for her role in “Girlfight,” and hit the surfboard daily while shooting the movie “Blue Crush.”

    HOT SHOTS: Michelle Rodriguez hits he beach.

    When she trained for “Battle: Los Angeles” last year, she told On The Red Carpet: “[Training] was pretty gnarly … I was there from 5 o’clock in the morning to 5 o’clock in the afternoon training hard-core.”

    Even with all that training, you can’t get this kind of sculpted bikini body without having a restricted diet. Michelle says she’s not a vegetarian, but she’s “disgusted every time I do have a piece of meat,” she told Eco Vegan Gal.

    So if you want to look like Rodriguez, all you have to do be in action movies, and feel self-loathing when you eat a hamburger.

    Easy right?

    FOX 411 | Editor

    In an interview with W magazine, the British beauty opens up about taking on a new gritty role in the Steve McQueen-directed film, “Shame.” The character, Sissy, is what W calls “a deeply troubled girl with an almost incestuous attachment to her brother (Michael Fassbender).”

  • Katherine Heigl on cheating, one-night stands and being 20lbs bigger in Hollywood

    FOX 411 | Editor

    Katherine Heigl isn’t one to shy away from the image of being an opinionated celebrity.

    In the January issue of Cosmopolitan UK, Heigl opens up about fidelity, her new film “New Year’s Eve,” what it’s like to be a more voluptuous woman in Hollywood and motherhood.

    One of her most candid confessions is about infidelity and how she would handle it in her own marriage.

    “I’ve been debating this lately. Josh and I always said that cheating would be a deal breaker; there is no second chance. But I’ve seen friends and acquaintances go through it and they’ve found a way back to the relationship, and a way to forgive each other. And as much as I would kill him if he cheated because it would destroy me, I have started to question whether, if a mistake were to be made and it was a one-time thing, I would forgive him. Because look at the life we’ve built together. We have history, we have a child…But at the same time, it would be really hard to ever fully trust that person again.”
