Eric Johnson, co-founder of New York fitness business Homage, told Bazaar exactly what he got Scarlett to do to prep for one of Hollywood’s most physically demanding roles.
Scarlett Johansson got seriously buff for her role in Avengers: Endgame. Epic physical fitness is definitely a requirement for playing a super-hero. We shouldn’t be surprised, then, really, to hear straight from her person trainer that she essentially trained like an Olympic athlete.
“Our inspiration for this iteration of Black Widow was Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2… Without the cigarette smoking, pounding the pavement for miles, and sleeping more than four hours a night,” he said.
He says he treated Scarlett like an athlete in training for a competition – the Olympics, perhaps. That meant a focus on “integrated foundational strength training” which took moves from plyometrics, kettle bell workouts, gymnastics, yoga and Olympic weight lifting. She did a lot of jumping, medicine ball throws, core work and bear crawls to build up impressive strength. Apparently Scarlett loves to do pull-ups, military presses, pistol squats, kettle bell swings and deadlifts (it makes us tired just to hear about it).
To make things even more intense, Scarlett also fasted for 12-15 hours at a time (You do you, Scarlett, but we couldn’t make it from breakfast to lunch without a snack and we like it that way).
Truly, we’ve never been more grateful to only be playing the role of “audience member, guzzling popcorn up the back” in the final instalment of the Avengers. We take our role very seriously and will be in training until further notice.
North West Re-Created THAT Kim Kardashian Crying Face – Yep, Like Mother, Like Daughter
If you’ve been keeping up with the Kardashians, then you’ll know that Kim Kardashian has long since embraced her influence as one of the internet’s favorite memes, even going so far as to cover her phone case in pictures of her famous “Crying Kim” face. Now, it looks like the “meme torch” has been passed on to North.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the reality TV star shared photos of her 5-year-old daughter wearing adult-sized pink snakeskin boots and a matching dress. “Sooooo Miss North dressed herself and thought she was ready for the day until I explained she couldn’t wear my boots,” Kim wrote. North was totally not having it.
Flip through Kim’s photos and you’ll find North posed with her mom’s snakeskin boots and a matching purse, which looks a whole lot like another post to Kim’s account from a few days ago. With her pose, it’s clear that North also may have inherited more than just her mom’s sense of style. Twitter users couldn’t get over North’s face and seem to think Kim is doing her daughter a major fashion injustice because those boots DO match her dress perfectly. Keep reading to see Kim and North’s matching looks.
Every Question You’ve Ever Had About the Met Gala, Answered
We don’t expect you to know that Vogue editor Anna Wintour has been cochairing the Met Gala since 1999, but you should absolutely know she’s the woman behind the annual event, which always falls on the first Monday in May. And you don’t need to know exactly how much money the ball raises for the Met’s Costume Institute, but you should be aware that behind all the glitz and glamour on the red carpet, there’s a curated exhibit for attendees (and eventually you) to enjoy.
But this year, Hollywood’s elite won’t be the only guests attending this high-profile event. Wintour has decided to open the Met’s doors to the public, with tickets starting at $35,000 and tables ranging from a whopping $200,000 to $300,000, according to an article in The Hollywood Reporter. The theme – Camp: Notes on Fashion – explores exaggerated fashion, and will be cohosted by A-list stars including Serena Williams, Lady Gaga, and Harry Styles, with special guests like power couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez. What goes into planning not only the display, but also the most anticipated, exclusive night in fashion? Anna Wintour handles the seating charts and taps a couple of celebrity performers to entertain, but we’re sure you have more questions than that, now don’t you?
