Blake Lively & Parker Posey CAFE SOCIETY Interview

Blake Lively’s trainer on her current workout routine

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.”

Simple.

sir-mix-a-lot Responds To Blake Livelys Oakland Booty Post

Blake Lively got some flack for saying that she had an “L.A. face with an Oakland booty” on Instagram and now rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot is responding to the comment.

The line is from the rapper’s song “Baby Got Back” and Blake used it to caption a photo of herself on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. See photos from that event in the gallery!

“For her to look at her butt and that little waist and to say ‘L.A. face with an Oakland booty’ doesn’t that mean that the norm has changed, that the beautiful people have accepted our idea of beautiful? That’s the way I took it,” Sir Mix-a-Lot told Pret-a-Reporter. “Now let me do this, as far as the critics are concerned: I don’t want to come off like, ‘Oh, he’s an Uncle Tom,’ because I’m not. If what Blake Lively meant by that comment was, ‘Oh my goodness, I’ve gained weight, I look horrible,’ if that’s what she meant — and I doubt that she did — then I’m with the critics. But no one in the world is gonna tell me that a woman that wears that dress is thinking that she’s fat. No, I’m sorry, it just doesn’t happen. It sounds like to me like she was giving the line props.”

“I think she’s saying, ‘I’ve got that Oakland booty,’ or ‘I’m trying to get it.’ I think we have to be careful what we wish for as African-Americans, because if you say she doesn’t have the right to say that, then how do you expect her at the same time to embrace your beauty? I mean, I don’t get it. I think it’s almost a nod of approval, and that was what I wanted. I wanted our idea of beautiful to be accepted,” he added. “I think now not only is it accepted, but it’s expected

More Baby Blake News

Blake Lively is all smiles on the cover of People magazine. She became a mom just last month, but has been primed for the job for years.

“I’m always teasing my sister’s kids that they are my own, and I’m always taking care of other people’s kids,” says the star, who welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds in December. (At press time the new parents had not yet revealed the baby’s gender or name.)

“Maybe because I didn’t grow up with little siblings, I’ve been making up for lost time. I’ve always felt like a mama.”

Now that she actually is one, “I don’t feel like it’s a massive change. I’ve always wanted a big family, and I understand that feeling when you have your first kid of ‘Let’s really be present in this.’ I do want to just enjoy this moment.”

But? “But I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year. You don’t just raise your kids, your kids also raise each other – oh my Lord, the things I learned from my brother Eric. He’s influenced my life so much. So I’m looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”

Co-star and close friend, Amber Tamblyn was one of the last to find out. Tamblyn told People magazine that when she went to visit Lively, she had no idea there would be a baby present. “I went up there and I didn’t know, everybody knew but me, and she does that shit to me,” Tamblyn said. Apparently, Lively texted Tamblyn about new wallpaper that she was anxious for her friend to see. But that wallpaper turned out to be a newborn. “And I went up there, and there was her baby,” Tamblyn said. “That bitch! She tricked me!” Tamblyn joked.

Tamblyn said that all of the “Sisterhood” girls have seen the baby. “I’m very excited for her and Ryan, and to be an auntie,” Tamblyn said. “All of us are godmothers, so we are very happy.”

Blake Lively Tops Forbes’ “30 Under 30”

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).

New Age of Adaline HQ Promotional Still

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.”
