Ever since she started promoting Oliver Stone’s “Savages,” Blake Lively has been talking extensively about her love of food and how, ironically, it doesn’t mess up her incredibly fit figure. In her most recent interview, she explains how this comes to be.
Still pushing the same film, which comes out in the UK later this month, Blake is reiterating her love of food and cooking, but she also reveals her big “secret” ally in the fight against the extra pounds.
Blake has been very vocal about her hate of diets and workouts in general, but she likes to keep as active as possible.
It’s a good thing then that she’s been blessed with a good metabolism. Add to that the fact that she’s still young, and it’s easy to understand how come she doesn’t pack on the pounds.
“To be around me, you must love food or I’m the most obnoxious person you’ve ever met. I’m in a big cooking phase. That’s all I talk about. If you went to my house and didn’t know who it belonged to, you would not think it belonged to an actress,” Blake says for the latest issue of Marie Claire
“There’s no memorabilia from my career, no showbizzy pictures on the wall. You would think it was the house of a cooking obsessive. I even have a special area set aside just for baking cupcakes,” she adds.
Having a special area for cupcakes makes sense since she once said there’s nothing she loves more in this world than baking and eating cupcakes
, even though they’re quite the calorie bombs.
“Being 25 years old!” she says when asked what is her secret for her amazing figure.
Say what you will about Blake and her merits as an actress, but there’s no denying she has one of the most spectacular bodies in showbiz, which, coupled with her amazing fashion sense, make of her one of the most charming presences on the red carpet circuit.
“That and a good metabolism. I could lie and put it down to dog walking, but you would be well within your rights to call my bluff: my dog weighs three pounds,” Blake continues, explaining how she keeps fit.
“I take six steps and she’s done for. In a few more years, I’ll need to have a new secret, as in an incredibly strict diet regime,” the star adds.
In the same interview, Blake talks about wanting to start a family and raising kids to be as “normal” as possible. Incidentally, today’s reports claim she and boyfriend of 1 year Ryan Reynolds tied the knot
over the weekend.
