Blake Lively is the latest celeb to admit that snapping back to your pre-pregnancy body doesn’t come easy. She’s doing it with lots of gym time, an entire diet program, and a New Year’s resolution to hold her accountable.
“New Years resolution started early — I WILL fit into my jeans again gall darnet,” she captioned a pic of her food haul on Monday night. “Thanks @getepicured for making it tasty.”
And while a celeb endorsement like that doesn’t usually come cheap, this one was free. “This is not an ad,” she continued. “This is me getting it up for healthy food. ?????.”
But a nutrition regimen is just the beginning of her post-baby body plan of action. She’s also hitting the gym hard — at least when she’s not hiding from her personal trainer, Don Saladino.

It’s the era of television reboots, and it looks like the CW’s “Gossip Girl” might be getting it’s moment next.
According to a report from E! News, the show’s executive producers, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, are not ruling out the possibility of a revival.
When asked if he would consider doing a reboot, Josh replied,
We haven’t really explored some of those conversations. Maybe, I don’t know. We haven’t really thought about it.
He also added “the internet has changed” and he would be interested in exploring how Serena and Blair would fair with new social media apps like Snapchat and Instagram.
So, although that sounds like a “maybe, probably not” to a normal person, in industry speak that’s a lot more optimistic.
To me, it sounds like they’re at least trying to work on something — it’s hard to believe the producers hadn’t even thought about it amidst the publicity for the “Gilmore Girls” and “Fuller House” reboot series.
“Gossip Girl” ended in 2012, so it might be a bit too soon to launch a revival just yet. Maybe we’ll hear about it again in upcoming years.
And of course, whether Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and the rest of the cast would come back if there WAS a revival would be a whole different story.
As the girls would say, only time will tell.

Actress Blake Lively was so anxious on her first day of shooting Woody Allen’s Café Society that she had to hold her co-star’s hand.
Blake Lively was shocked when she was asked to audition for Woody Allen’s new movie Café Society because she never saw herself as “fitting in” the director’s world. The comedy drama is set in 1930s Hollywood and tells the love triangle story between Bobby (Jesse Eisenberg), Vonnie (Kristen Stewart) and Veronica (Blake Lively).
Making her name in teen drama TV series Gossip Girl, Blake, 28, has recently been branching out into more serious roles, including a recent turn as a troubled surfer in The Shallows. But she never anticipated being cast in one of Woody’s offbeat dramas, and was extremely nervous when she auditioned for the role, especially as she wasn’t given any details about the character before she read the lines for the famed director.
“I did it once in a room with a couple of people and Woody – no cameras, very low-key. Then he says, ‘OK, do it again. Just this time, louder’. I realised I must have been whispering, I was so nervous,” she told Total Film magazine. “But the next day, I got a phone call asking if I wanted to do it. A Woody Allen movie is such specific writing, such a refined cadence, so I never saw myself fitting into that world, though I love it.”
Blake, who is married to actor Ryan Reynolds, was also extremely worried on the first day of filming Café Society as one of her first scenes had a lot of lengthy dialogue and she didn’t want to stumble on her words.
“(Co-star) Parker Posey was holding my hand under the table,” she confided. “I was intimidated because he’s an iconic filmmaker.
Café Society is showing in U.S. theatres now and opens in U.K. cinemas on 2 September (16).

Straight from the trainer to you.
In preparation for her role in The Shallows, Blake Lively and trainer Don Saladino set up a flexible six day workout plan for the actress to ensure she was in peak physical condition to fight that shark.
“She truly listened to me every step of the way and we both listened to her body,” Saladino tells Well and Good. “At the end of the day, it will never be one-size-fits-all. In order to get the results, you need to be paying attention to what’s going on [with you].”
Before laying out the workout regimen, Saladino noted that every workout is different and to always keep that in mind when reading up on celebrity workout plans:
“I could write out a workout for you, but the thing that people have to take into consideration is the intensity levels,” Saladino says. “And just because you see a celebrity workout plan, doesn’t mean that it’s exactly the same formula that helped them get in shape. If a leg day was set up for a Monday for Blake, but she was flying home the night before and stayed up all night with the baby and was exhausted, I’m not gonna make her do the full workout.”
So what did Lively get up to on those six days?
Day one focused on the upper body, finishing with a 20-30 minute burst of cardio. Day two was all about the lower body, think kettlebell deadlift, a lateral lunge, and split squat. Day three encompassed water; Lively hit the pool with a mix of interval work, treading water and long-distance swimming. Day four focused on getting outdoors and exercises that work anywhere: walking lunges, push-ups, and planks and more cardio. On day five, Saladino simply encouraged Lively to head outdoors “whether that was a walk with her daughter or husband, a jog around town, or a hike—for 30-40 minutes.”

Blake Lively spent 2014 schooling us all in flawless maternity wear and giving Martha Stewart a run for her money when it comes to craftiness (who can forget that Bey-hive birthday cake she made for Beyonce), so it should come as no surprise to anyone anywhere that the actress’s 2015 is already off to a killer start: Lively, 27, was just named to the top of Forbes’ annual “30 Under 30” entertainment list.
Helping Lively nab the top honors this year was her entrepreneurial work on Preserve, the lifestyle brand she launched this past summer that sells clothes, food, and home goods. Her mantra for success? “I’ll never feel like I arrived,” she told Forbes. “The people I look up to the most are the people that are continuing to up their game.”
Also making this year’s entertainment list was Whiplash writer-director Damien Chazelle (29), Ansel Elgort (20), Broad City’s Ilana Glazer (27), Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany (29), Emma Watson (24), Miles Teller (27), and Emma Stone (26). You can see the full entertainment list here, but what you won’t see are any repeats from years past (e.g., no Lena Dunham or Jennifer Lawrence):Forbes implemented a new rule this year that the lists in each category could feature no previous “30 Under 30” honorees.
Moving over to music, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard (27) and Brian Kelley (29) were highlighted for their trailblazing mix of country, electronic, pop, and hip-hop music; along with Iggy Azalea (24), Hozier (24), A$AP Rocky (26), Ed Sheeran (23), Sam Smith (22), Meghan Trainor (21), and Charli XCX (22). See the full music list here.

We are pleased to share with you the first still for Blakes upcoming film Age of Adaline. (HQ now added) In the film, Blake is going to stay young and beautiful forever. Literally.
The film which is due out April 24th 2015, stars Blake as Adaline, born at the turn of the century and rendered ageless after a mysterious accident in the 1930s. Director Lee Toland Krieger believes Lively, 27, is ideal casting.
“She sort of embodies a woman who is perfect physically, so in that regard, she’s a perfect fit,” says Krieger. “Also, for someone who is 27 years old, she’s wildly sophisticated and seems like an old soul.”
Yet the filmmaker also was compelled by a bigger reason to cast Lively in the leading role, which had Hollywood luminaries such as Katherine Heigl and Natalie Portman attached in various project incarnations. Lively, who is expecting a baby with husband Ryan Reynolds, lobbied for the part with great ideas, says Krieger. Further, Lively has flexed her acting muscles only sparingly, in acclaimed supporting performances such as 2010’s The Town.
“The chance to see Blake carry a movie like this for the first time is really exciting,” says Krieger. “She rises to the occasion.”
Portraying the character through the decades was a well-suited bonus for fashionista Lively. She was able to tap her designer friends for period costumes crafted by Gucci and Dior.
“To put Blake, who would look good in a trash bag, in the great clothing from all of these eras was kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Krieger.
Of course, being immortal has its severe complications. As Adaline stays forever young, her daughter continues to age and surpasses her. In the present, her daughter is played by 81-year-old Ellen Burstyn. It makes for a jarring juxtaposition.
“It was one of the elements of the film I was most nervous about,” says Krieger. “But you instantly believe them as mother and daughter. I know it sounds a bit crazy.”
With all of her contemporaries, friends and lovers dying off, Adaline becomes a beautiful recluse — afraid of getting hurt by more love and loss. This changes when she meets a charismatic philanthropist (Michiel Huisman) who takes her to his parents’ home (played by Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) for the weekend.
Although the weekend and the relationship put Adaline’s immortal status in peril, Krieger says there is a positive message.
“It sounds like wish fulfillment to look like Blake Lively forever. But she cannot grow old with anyone,” says Krieger. “In a world consumed with youth and vanity, there’s something very fresh and beautiful about a story focusing on the beauty of growing old.
“I’d like to think you walk away from this thinking love conquers all, even immortality.”
