Lea Michele on Being Fit: “If I can do it, anybody can do it.”

On gaining weight when she first did Glee:

I had more time in my trailer, more time in my car, and less time walking around. That’s when I realized how important it was for me, personally, to include activities and movement in my daily life.

On being very fit now:

[I’m in] the best place I’ve ever been. If I can do it, an Italian girl from the Bronx? Are you kidding me? Anybody can do it.

On her diet:

[She eats meat] as long as it’s coming from good places. The best lesson I’ve ever learned is, Who cares if people [servers] think you’re annoying? Tell them to use less salt. Tell them to use less butter. The worse they can do is say no.

On wellness:

It’s so important to do things for yourself – because the better you are, the better you can be for the people in your life. It’s so important for me to stress that being healthy is not about being a gym rat. It’s not about being 90 lbs. This is really how I live every single day.

… says Lea in People Magazine.

Victoria Beckham to her Young Self: “You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best”

VB-Vogue_2-682x1024

On what she would tel her teenage self – on overcoming insecurities:

“I know you are struggling right now. You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best at dancing at the Laine Theatre Arts college. You have never properly fitted in, although you are sharing your Surrey school digs with really nice girls. You have bad acne. You think the principal has put you at the back of the end-of-year show (in a humiliatingly bright purple Lycra leotard) because you are too plump to go at the front. (This may or may not be true.)”

… says Victoria.

Alicia Keys on Going Makeup-Free: “In a lot of ways I’m sick of it”

On choosing to go makeup-free at different red carpet events this year:

Really empowering. Really freeing. The thing is, it really came from because we put so many limitations on ourselves, on each other. Society puts limitations on it. In a lot of ways I’m sick of it. I’m over it to be honest. That’s a lot of what the music is about. It’s about being our own unique selves. We each have something that no one else has. It would be so amazing to just embrace each other how we are.

… says 35 year-old Alicia.
