Jane Fonda has given fans the ultimate ’80s throwback by reviving her iconic workouts in a promotion for her virtual Fire Drill Fridays rallies.

The Grace and Frankie actress took to video-sharing site TikTok on Thursday to post her first clip, in which she was dressed in gym clothes and positioned on a yoga mat.

“I’m bringing back the Jane Fonda workout during this home sequestration,” Fonda commented, before launching into a set of leg lifts.

However, the video then switched to a short clip from one of her popular 1980s workout videos, before cutting to a shot of the star standing in a red coat.

“You know what? There are too many workouts happening right now on television and computers. What I would really like for you to do is to work out with me for the planet,” the 82-year-old stated. “There’s a climate crisis that’s a real emergency. Whether you’re on your couch or your yoga mat, would you join me for the virtual Fire Drill Fridays? The future needs you, I need you.”

In the accompanying caption, Fonda called on her followers to join in on the virtual rally she is hosting on Friday alongside members of Greenpeace USA.

“Join our virtual #FireDrillFriday this Friday at 11am PT / 2pm ET to keep the pressure on politicians to adopt a #GreenNewDeal, end new fossil fuels, and enact a just transition to a renewable economy that protects workers and communities. Let’s tackle the climate crisis while we #StayHome,” she wrote.

Fonda has been arrested for civil disobedience a handful of times at her weekly Fire Drill Fridays rallies in Washington, D.C. in recent months, and will take to social media to continue her campaign amid the coronavirus lockdown. Those interested in taking part in the virtual rally can register at Greenpeace USA’s Zoom website.

Katharine McPhee recently gave her husband David Foster’s hair a trim during an Instagram Live session.

The couple has been staging daily mini-concerts on social media while in self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic, and on Wednesday, the Smash star revealed she had stepped up and become a barber to give the veteran musician a much-needed tidy-up.

After introducing viewers to the live stream, McPhee recapped what they had been up to since their last online gig.

“The update is I cut your hair,” she said as she turned to Foster, and then pulled out a pair of scissors to trim his locks a little further.

“She did an amazing job – look at this!” Foster gushed, as McPhee explained, “It’s just a minor adjustment.”

“She did a great, great job,” the 70-year old-continued. “My hair was getting so long. I was starting to look like Einstein!”

McPhee and Foster aren’t the only celebrities giving each other at-home haircuts. Gwen Stefani recently helped style her boyfriend Blake Shelton’s new mullet by shaving stripes into the side of his head, while Ryan Reynolds revealed his wife Blake Lively was going to cut his hair shortly.

However, he joked that he wasn’t too thrilled about the idea since her first attempt wasn’t a success.

“She’s done this once before. It took two and a half hours. And then at the end, it looked like she had done the whole thing using only a lighter or like those gloves that are made of sandpaper,” the 43-year-old deadpanned. “It would have been a little faster and more efficient if she’d just wore it down, if she’d just rubbed my head until the hair just disappeared.”

Pink also realised the downsides of DIY hairstyling after she gave herself an uneven buzz cut.

Jodie Comer used to overdo eyebrows as a teenager

Jodie Comer used to rock “super heavily drawn on” eyebrows when she was growing up.

The Killing Eve actress grew up in Liverpool, England – where girls tend to go all out when they get ready for a night on the town – so her introduction to beauty and hairstyling as a teenager was of the maximalist variety.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 27-year-old recalled her ritual of getting a “curly blow” at the hair salon and staying in all-day rollers which “you take out at the last minute so your hair stays in longer”.

She then laughed at the memory of her appearance, sharing how she had a big smoky eye, contouring, and “super heavily drawn on” eyebrows.

“I don’t know if you’re familiar with Liverpool, where I’m from, but Liverpool is the city of glam,” she said. “I look back at pictures of myself, and I’m like, ‘Whoa!’ I respect my parents for just letting me get on with it!”

Jodie has come a long way from overdoing the make-up and cleaning her face with only a baby wipe, as she is now into sheet masks, has facialist Jasmina Vico on speed dial, and is the new global ambassador for luxury skincare brand Noble Panacea.

The British actress now feels more comfortable with no make-up on, although she still has to make sure her brows are on point.

“As I’ve gotten older I’ve realised I just feel more comfortable with no make-up on,” she explained to Vogue.co.uk. “I don’t top up my make-up throughout the day, but I do like a Chanel lipstick. And eyebrow gel. I can have absolutely nothing on my face, but my brows need that.”

Zac Efron will ‘never go back’ to his Baywatch abs

Zac Efron has insisted he will “never go back” to the shape he was in for the Baywatch movie.

The 32-year-old chronicled his intense diet and fitness regime on social media in 2016, which helped him to perfect his shredded figure for the 2017 action comedy, also starring Dwayne Johnson and Priyanka Chopra.

But during a recent episode of Sean Evans’s YouTube show Hot Ones, in which guests eat spicy chicken wings while answering quick-fire questions, Zac revealed his true feelings about getting into incredible shape with celebrity trainer Patrick Murphy.

Zac eradicated carbs and sugar from his diet and upped his protein intake, and with the help of Patrick, he managed to reach a five per cent body fat level in just 12 weeks.

And while training for the movie was a “really important time”, he said it made him realise that he’s had enough of trying to get the perfect six-pack.

“I never want to be in that good of shape again. It was so hard,” Zac confessed, noting that at the time, he began to worry about topics such as water retention. “You begin to worry about water under your skin, which makes your six-pack into a four-pack… s**t like that. It’s just stupid, it’s not real. I’m happy (the training) worked, I may do it again if it was something worthwhile… but, I don’t need it. I’m good.

“Take care of your heart, take care of your brain… all good.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the High School Musical star discussed his YouTube workout and interview show Gym Time, in which he trains with a variety of famous faces.

“When I get to meet, or hang out with, anyone who’s an inspiration to me, through whatever their art or craft is, that’s really fun. And if they wanna train with me… unreal,” Zac gushed of his guests.

Kylie Jenner is “going on a health journey” while in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 22-year-old opened up about her beauty regime during a recent Instagram Live Q&A with her friend Stassie Karanikolaou and noted that she has been embracing her natural look while practicing social distancing and staying inside to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

“This is the first time I’ve worn my natural hair,” Kylie said while running her hands through her bob-length locks, which she had coloured a dark blonde. “I’m going on a hair health journey during quarantine.”

Kylie went on to share her haircare essentials and explained that she has become a big fan of using hair masks to repair her strands, and argan oil, which helps to hydrate and soften hair thanks to its high content of antioxidants and vitamin E.

The mother-of-one hasn’t been wearing her usual acrylic nails either.

“I feel so uncomfortable (about my natural nails) I don’t know how to type on my phone anymore because I usually type with the flats. My nails didn’t even need to be taken off, this is just such a good time to take your hair out, nails out, go no lashes, we’re so natural Stass,” the reality TV star laughed.

During the quarantine period, the billionaire businesswoman is also working hard on her Kylie Cosmetics line.

She told her fans and followers on Friday that she’d been focusing on her beauty brand and teased upcoming collaborations with her older sister Kendall Jenner and pal Stassie.

“I have something really special coming up with Kendall,” she shared. “Stass and I may or may not be working on something special together.”

Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Bieber forced him to shave off his controversial moustache.

The popstar dabbled with a little facial hair at the beginning of 2020, but in February, agreed to get rid of the look, which he had dubbed “mustashio”.

But during an Instagram Live chat with pals Kendall Jenner and Kehlani on Sunday, Justin revealed he would still have the moustache if it was up to him.

“Hailey was gonna freaking kill me,” he said. “I wasn’t gonna be able to sleep in the bed. So, I had to shave it.”

Justin then asked his wife what she liked most about her husband, prompting the model to chime back, “My favourite thing about being married to you is that you are very considerate of people. You make sure to put other people first. You’re a very good listener. And you really encourage me to do what I’m good at and what I love.”

Elsewhere, Hailey revealed that she is enjoying self-isolation with the Yummy star after initially fearing the lockdown would lead to anxiety issues.

“It’s really shown me that the simplicity in life and kind of dialling everything back has made me so happy,” the 23-year-old shared. “I’ve been happier than I felt in months, just from being able to be low-key and just hang – and not have things on a schedule. I feel really reconnected with myself and that’s unexpectedly made me really happy…

“I swear I feel like I’ve gotten so much more done in this quarantine than I have in, like, a year.”

Kristen Bell was told she wasn’t ‘pretty enough’ early in her career

Kristen Bell was told she wasn’t “pretty enough” to play the attractive girls onscreen at the start of her career.

The Frozen II actress, 39, told Vanity Fair that when she was starting out as an actress, she’d constantly be told she was “not pretty enough to play the pretty girl”.

“I remember early on, getting feedback, that I wasn’t enough in either category. I would get feedback from an audition: ‘Well, you’re not pretty enough to play the pretty girl, but you’re not quirky enough or weird enough to play the weird girl’,” she recalled.

However, for the aspiring Hollywood star, she was just grateful to be considered for a part at all, adding: “I was like ‘OK so does that just mean I can’t be an actor? What does that mean?’ That’s what I was getting feedback on in every single audition.”

Now, The Good Place star has noted the criteria for acting roles has shifted and producers aren’t so preoccupied with looks anymore, with casting directors favouring “dimensional people that don’t have to be one thing”.

“I think as I’ve grown older, those boxes have changed and they’ve almost gone away,” she explained. “It’s this huge grey area now of all these beautiful stories you can tell.”

And Kristen is “grateful” for how roles for women and men have become more inclusive over the years.

“It’s not the ’80s where you have to have the popular girl and then the nerd who gets the guy. It’s not that anymore and I’m really grateful for that. It opens up a lot of opportunities for everyone to play and pretend, which is the most fun part,” she added.

Whitney Cummings’ self-isolation wardrobe consists of tie-dye and sweatpants.

The 37-year-old actress and comedian is holed up at home as she practises social distancing in an effort to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus, and she told The Hollywood Reporter that she’s embracing a more comfortable style.

“There’s not a zipper in sight or an underwire bra on the horizon for months. I am dressed like (actor) Pauly Shore in the nineties – in tie-dye sweatpants, on my seventh day of dry shampoo,” she laughed. “I look like a tech billionaire on vacation in Tahoe, with a lot of super normcore Patagonia fleeces.

“I also feel like I’m ready to go at any moment. I’m wearing sneakers in my house. If s**t hits the fan, I’m ready. I’ve got my dried beans and a fanny pack on all the time for no reason.”

And Cummings, the creator of U.S. sitcom 2 Broke Girls, shared that she’s picking up some new hobbies while in self-isolation.

“I’m reading all the books that I pretended I read two years ago – the ones that I lied about to everyone when I told them I read them. I’m going to catch up with all my lies, basically, so that they are no longer lies,” she joked.

She also blasted those complaining about being bored during the lockdown and urged them to do something for their communities instead.

“There’s so much stuff we can do to be useful,” Whitney fired. “There are plenty of things you could be doing to help people. Drop off groceries for older people. Drop off groceries to nurses. Make masks! Why is anyone bored?”

Blake Lively to cut Ryan Reynolds’s hair during self-isolation

Ryan Reynolds will get his hair cut by his wife Blake Lively during the coronavirus lockdown.

The Deadpool actor, who is spending the self-isolation period at home with the Gossip Girl actress, their three daughters, and Blake’s mother, revealed during a video interview for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night that he was lucky enough to get a haircut before production on his movie Red Notice shut down two weeks ago, but he was already in need of another trim, so was enlisting his wife for the job on Thursday.

“I was working on a film up until two weeks ago, just a little over two weeks ago… thankfully I got a haircut on the day we shut down. I was thinking ahead,” he explained. “Tomorrow, Blake is going to give me a haircut.”

In his usual jokey manner, the Canadian star hinted that he didn’t have high expectations because of her previous trimming attempt.

“She’s done this once before. It took two and a half hours. And then at the end, it looked like she had done the whole thing using only a lighter or like those gloves that are made of sandpaper,” the 43-year-old deadpanned. “It would have been a little faster and more efficient if she’d just wore it down, if she’d just rubbed my head until the hair just disappeared, so tomorrow I’m getting a haircut, I’m very excited.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Ryan revealed he was passing the time by helping his and Blake’s daughters – James, five, Inez, three, and their eight-month-old third child, which has not been named publicly, make dresses out of tissue paper.

“I try not to push sort of gender normative ideas on my kids as they’re born, but each one as soon as they came out of the chute, they wanted to make dresses, they wanted to dress in hot pink all day,” he shared. “That’s what I do. This morning we made dresses out of tissue paper, which was fun for them.”

Jodie Comer was totally “obsessed” with cosmetics when she was a teenager.

In an interview with Allure, the Killing Eve actress revealed that it was a big deal to get dressed up with her friends when she was growing up in Liverpool, England, so she used to cover her face in products – but she’s now come to realise she’s more comfortable without make-up.

“I went through this period where I was just obsessed with make-up and I wore a tonne of it, and then I suddenly realised how much I was wearing, and the fact that I was spending all this money,” she admitted. “I think now I’m just trying to be more comfortable with what I have rather than having to cover up… But I do love putting make-up on for a night out.”

While the 27-year-old has toned down her make-up use over the years, there is one product she cannot give up – eyebrow gel.

“My number one is eyebrow gel. I can’t live without it,” the star shared, adding that she often applies it herself on set. “I could have no make-up on, but if I fix my brows… or when I’m on set, the one thing I want to do myself is my eyebrows.”

Comer also revealed that if she finds herself without eyebrow gel, she simply spritzes on some hairspray to a mascara spoolie brush and uses it to comb her arches.

The British actress gave the interview to promote her partnership with luxury skincare company Noble Panacea. She has been appointed its global brand ambassador and will appear in all of the upcoming advertising campaigns.

“I have to believe in it,” Comer said of the collaboration. “And have to want to wear it myself and be proud of it. And I tried the products and just loved them.”
