Tracy Anderson: “I see women all the time who say they run 15 miles a day but their butts are saggy”

May 26, 2015 in Celebrity Quotes by Versus

On why she doesn’t recommend jogging, cycling and eliptical machines:

Gwyneth: Are there any fitness methods that you don’t recommend? I know you told me once not to only do the elliptical. Why don’t you like fitness methods that rely on one repetitive motion?

Tracy: Because I think that when people want to feel balanced and connected, they shouldn’t overdo anything. Many people don’t know what is going to make them feel balanced. If someone is pushing a ton of weight or if they’re slinging things in the air or cycling, they’re wearing down their joints. They’re compartmentalizing the larger muscles that are bone movers and they’re actually creating further imbalance in the body. It’s not even that your little muscles don’t activate; you’re charging up the same larger muscles over and over again. I see women all the time who say they run 15 miles a day but their butts are saggy. You’ve got muscles underneath the glutes that are inactive. There’s no reason for them to work right now because your glutes are crazy strong. That’s not what is going to lift your butt up. It’s just purely an education. I’m fine with anybody wanting to do whatever they want; it’s just about understanding what you’re actually doing with your body and what the result is going to be.

Jane Fonda: “I grew up so defined by my looks”

May 20, 2015 in Beauty & Body Image, Celebrity Quotes by Versus

28DD166F00000578-3088026-image-a-21_1432048099533

On body image:

‘I did have plastic surgery. I’m not proud of the fact that I’ve had it. But I grew up so defined by my looks. I was taught to think that if I wanted to be loved, I had to be thin and pretty. That leads to a lot of trouble. I’m older now, and I have to be more self-conscious. When you’re young, you can get away with more. I always thought that being self-conscious was a negative. But now I feel differently.’

On her biggest insecurity – her arms:

‘These only come out during candlelight on a very dark evening.’

… says 77 year-old Jane in W Magazine.

Carey Mulligan: “I’m too self-conscious of my body and my appearance”

April 30, 2015 in Celebrity Quotes by Versus

On why she never wears figure-hugging clothes:

”I’m so reserved. I like outfits that come to my knee and aren’t too tight or revealing. I’m too self-conscious of my body and my appearance. I hate the idea of standing in front of a hundreds of people while they take my picture. It’s a nightmare and I feel so uncomfortable. Maybe I’ve improved a little, but any time I’m on the red carpet I lose all sense of myself. I find it so odd. I know it sounds like a contradiction but I never went into acting for all eyes on me.”

… says Carey.

Tracy Anderson: Curvy Kim Kardashian on the Cover of Vogue Is ‘Progress’

April 21, 2015 in Celebrity Quotes by Versus

On juice cleanses:

“Anybody is going to lose weight if they drink liquid all day long. That’s like lunchtime liposuction or freezing the fat cells off. You don’t own that change. The weight is coming back.”

On Hollywood beauty standards:

There’s a disease here—the disease is vanity, insecurity and the lengths of unhealthy behaviors people go to to achieve what they think is beautiful. The disease of ‘I’m not worth anything unless I look like that person over there.’”

On being pro body diversity:

“I think it’s changing, and that excites me. You take a Kim Kardashian, who is a curvaceous, voluptuous, petite woman—and she’s on the cover of Vogue! I like that. I think that’s progress. Lena Dunham, who is a buddy of mine, is on the cover selling magazines with her beauty and her light. She’s not all about giving women the same body: “I want to get away from ‘Tracy Anderson is going to make you teeny-tiny.’ I’m not trying to make everyone the same. To me, ‘hot’ is not defined by a height or weight or measurement; hot is going to the root of who you are.”

… says Tracy.

Candice Bergen: “I don’t enjoy eating lunch with some women who only have kale”

April 21, 2015 in Celebrity Quotes by Versus

FFN_f_51705889

On talking about weight in her memoir, A Fine Romance:

 “It was a scant reference on page 150 or something. I was just saying, I don’t enjoy eating lunch with some women who only have kale. I just find it limiting … I’d rather not go on, if that’s what I have to eat to fuel myself. I’m very comfortable. I mean, would I love to lose 10, 15 pounds? Absolutely. But I just haven’t taken the steps to do it.”

… says 68 year-old Candice.
