The clothes came off; the courage came out. Learn what these stars, including “Death At A Funeral” star Regina Hall and HBO’s “Entourage” Emmanuelle Chriqui, had to say about their bodies, their workouts, and what it felt like to drop the robe. For more of our revealing interviews with them, pick up the May issue of Allure, on newsstands April 20.
REGINA HALL: Some actresses diet for weeks before showing skin; Hall ate a candy bar on the way to this shoot. But the Death at a Funeral actress’s exercise routine was hard-core enough to make up for indulgences. “I’ve been doing Ashtanga five days a week since the beginning of January. Next year, nothing is going to look any better or stand any higher!”
EMMANUELLE CHRIQUI: “Some women want bigger breasts,” says the Entourage actress. “But [I wish] I could have had a dancer’s body. I sometimes wear plunging necklines because they make me feel smaller.” At the shoot, she was on day four of a ten-day organic-food “cleanse.” The point wasn’t to drop pounds. “It’s not about losing weight. I didn’t want to feel freaked out about today, so I consciously kept focusing on excitement.”
