Marisa Miller’s Secret to a Six-Pack and How She Hides Her Cellulite | Annalynne Mccord Dissed by 'Twilight' Big-Wigs | Ashton Kutcher Gets Bruce Willis Hooked on Shiny Hiney and Glitter Undies? | Pop Tarts Scene & Herd
She’s a Victoria’s Secret "Angel," was number one in Maxim Magazine’s 2008 hot list and last year graced the coveted cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition — but Marisa Miller works hard for her stunning six-pack and her secret involves a lot of sweating, socking and splashing.
"I box a lot, I spin and I surf," Miller told Tarts at the launch of Naturally Victoria’s Secret Beauty at The Grove in Los Angeles on Saturday. "I try to mix it up. I obviously have to be in shape 24 hours and the gym can be super monotonous, so I just get outside and try to make it fun so my body doesn’t get bored."
But it turns out that the California native does have to cheat a little in order to hide her (gasp) cellulite when getting ready to strut in a swimsuit.
"Skin is huge and there are so many great bronzers. Self tanners were a little funky ten years ago but the color is a lot better now. That’s the most important thing, if you have a little glow it really hides imperfections - bruises, spider veins, we all have little cellulite," Miller added. "When you have that glow and you’re moisturized the light hits you in a different way. Especially after winter we have really dry skin it’s important to exfoliate, moisturize and do a self-tanner."
And even though millions of men across the world have probably spent hours drooling over the lingerie lass, Miller herself feels much more lauded when she gets a little love from the ladies.
"Not to discredit the guys, but when a woman gives a compliment it’s very special. There is nothing more flattering than a woman to say ‘I’m a fan’ or ‘I think you’re beautiful’," she added. "I don’t know why, but it means a lot to get a compliment from a woman."
Speaking of womanly issues, after a few of the 30-year-old’s friends had breast-cancer scares she decided to step up and take action.
"I’m involved with the Young Survivors Coalition they focus on support and research for women under 40, there is a big gap in research and women do get cancer in 20’s and 30’s and its often more aggressive," Miller explained. "When I heard about this I wanted to tell my friends and my sisters, it’s not something to be afraid of, just be aware of."
On tap to help Marisa Miller launch the new all-natural beauty line were 90210 starlets Shannen Doherty and AnnaLynne McCord. When Miss McCord stopped squealing (seriously) after smelling the honeysuckle she told Tarts that she was well, sick of the CW remake.
"I will be excited for the next season, but right now I don’t want to hear about it," she admitted. "I’m taking time off; I’m headed to Europe for 55 days for a much needed R&R vacation."
So it looks as though McCord won’t be starring in the next Twilight flick as rumored (and it is even still listed as ‘rumored’ on IMDB) — but that wasn’t her decision.
"I really wish I was in the next movie, I would love that to be true," McCord said. "I went to the premiere, I’m obsessed and it would be cool to work with a bunch of my friends (we’re sure she probably mainly means boyfriend Kellan Lutz) but no, I won’t be in it. I’m sorry."
And even though co-star Shannen Doherty has been dubbed a bit of a bad-girl over her years in show biz and resigned from the original 90210 and later Charmed over on-set squabbles, she still speaks her mind and hasn’t softened when it comes to hearing anyone else’s sob story.
"Everyone has their path and maybe I’ve strayed from my path a couple of times but I always get my ass back on it. You can’t live with regret or indecision," Doherty said. "I’m not big on people being wishy-washy or wallowing in self-pity or going ‘oh look at my current situation its rough, my husband treated me poorly’ or ‘my boyfriend is a jerk’. None of us want to hear about it. It’s a tough world, stand up for yourself, do what is right for you, be healthy and move on."
Sounds slightly strange, right? Well, we hear Ashton Kutcher got wind of GinchGonch underwear last year while on location with wife Demi Moore in Montreal and insisted on wearing the bizarre line in several scenes of his Sundance flick Spread.
According to insiders, Kutcher has become so obsessed that he makes orders on a regular basis (he ordered from the new Glitter collection right before filming 5 Killers with Katherine Heigl in France) and even has Moore’s ex Bruce Willis totally hooked. We wonder what the Striptease starlet has to say about her two main men sporting the same style beneath the sheets. …
Speaking of Willis, the actor tied-the-knot to model/actress Emma Hemming with an intimate ceremony in Turks & Caicos on Saturday. Demi & Ashton were reportedly present at the ceremony along with Willis and Moore’s three children Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
