Zoe Saldana Has A Hard Time Slowing Down

It’s not surprise that we all get older; and when most people get older, they tend to slow down.  But not Zoe Saldana.  In an interview with Women’s Health U.K., the Guardians of the Galaxy star admitted her body isn’t what it was years ago, but how she knows she needs to slow down.

The 36-year-old admits;

“My body is less toned.  I do look in the mirror and see things I don’t want.  My first reaction is I breathe and I think, ‘I’m a woman.  I’m 36.  My body is changing.”

Zoe’s level of workouts and how much she works out are based off what her body tells her.

“I’ve learnt to listen to myself, so whenever I don’t feel like doing anything that starts with ‘I should’ then I don’t.”

When this interview took place, the public did not know that Zoe was pregnant, but now that the world knows, you can see why she would want to slow things down.

I’m exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t. Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn’t like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested – you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like “F**k it. Just be happy, regardless.”

Zoe Saldana’s Guardians of the Galaxy Workout


Zoe Saldana is kicking butt and looking great doing it in the new flick “Guardian Of The Galaxy”. Recently, SHAPE magazine caught up with her personal trainer  Steve Moyer, to find out what secrets he used to whip Zoe into shape. He also dishes on her nutrition plan, and gives great advice on how to fit in a workout when you are short on time.

Shape: What does a typical workout with Zoe entail? Steve Moyer: Generally speaking, we work her full body with an emphasis on staying lean and strong. I like to combine three or four exercises in a row to keep the workout moving and take advantage of the time. When she’s in town, sometimes workouts last a full hour. Sometimes it’s 30 minutes. I’ll do lots of cardio and core if I know I won’t be seeing the client the next day. If I know we are working out on consecutive days, I split the workouts according to body parts. For a full body workout, I like to do a leg exercise like squats, followed by a core exercise like plank push-ups (which also hits the triceps), followed by a cardio exercise, which also targets the legs like Jumping Lunges. That’s a great series that will build strength and endurance and can be a major aid in leaning out and shedding unwanted pounds.

 

Shape: Do you help Zoe with her diet as well? SM: She has used my meal-delivery business before, MoyerMeals. My service is gluten-free, no added sugar, nothing

Former “Parks and Rec” Star Heckled For Posting Buff Selfie Pic

Former “Park’s and Rec” star Chris Pratt has nothing to worry about, or does he?

He recently took to the Internet by posting a selfie of himself posing his new hot bod and showing duck lips, but didn’t get the exact supportive response that he expected. Instead, his friends made fun of him. Hmmm not so nice, guys!

Pratt dropped his chubby frame and started working out for his new role in the upcoming Marvel film “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Yahoo! Interviewed Pratt and his co-star Zoe Saldana at the Comic-Con event in San Diego this weekend, and Zaldana showed support by expressing the positive aspect of his weight loss journey:

“I feel like it would be nothing but inspiring, and encouraging, and empowering for people that are struggling with their weight.”

When Pratt was offered the role he knew that he had to make some dramatic changes, he told Yahoo!:

“I got the role like six months ago, and they were like great job, but you’re too fat. And I was like, ‘alright, I can work on that!”

Believe it or not, Pratt also gave up drinking beer for six months to get that great bod for the role.

Good job giving up the beer gut, Pratt. You look hot!
