Jennifer Aniston has credited intermittent fasting with helping her to stay in shape.

The Friends actress abides by the 16:8 fasting diet, meaning she goes without food for a whopping 16 hours and only eats in a strict eight-hour period.

“I do intermittent fasting, so no food in the morning. I noticed a big difference in going without solid food for 16 hours,” she told Radio Times magazine.

Jennifer went on to explain that she starts her day at 9am, and when she’s not fasting, she has celery juice for breakfast. The 50-year-old will then meditate before heading out for a rigorous workout.

Intermittent fasting, also known as the eight-hour diet, is said to assist weight loss, control blood sugar levels and boost brain function. No foods are off-limits during the eight hours you’re allowed to eat, but followers of the diet insist that no junk food is consumed and urge people to be careful of binge eating.

Most devotees of the diet choose to skip food in the mornings and eat protein-rich meals from 12pm until 8pm daily.

Jennifer’s The Morning Show co-star Reese Witherspoon is also a fitness fanatic – hitting the gym up to six times a week – and recently revealed she often turns to her pal for advice on nutrition.

“I just have a green juice and a coffee in the morning. Jen knows so much about health and fitness that I always defer to her. She’s great at wellbeing advice,” Reese gushed.

James Corden decided to give up eating red meat after reading about cruelty to elephants.

The Late Late Show with James Corden host has explained in an interview with Britain’s Radio Times magazine that he stopped eating meat after being put off by what he read about the abuse of elephants at the end of last year (17).

“At Christmas, I read a story about the mistreatment of elephants and realised I was upset about animal welfare while eating a bacon sandwich,” he said. “I thought, ‘Well, you really can’t be upset about elephants and not think about the pigs.’ I hope I can keep it up. I will certainly try.”

The 39-year-old also plans to adopt a vegetarian diet by cutting out fish as well.

“I’m going to try to phase out fish next. It’s going to be a gradual process,” he added.

The British star, who is currently starring in heist movie Ocean’s 8, may now have a healthier lifestyle, but he still cannot resist eating bread. In a recent interview with The Sun, he described baked goods as his “nemesis”.

“They delivered this basket of warm, fresh bread and we’re like, ‘It’s happening, we’re doing it. Who are we trying to kid?'” he joked. “It’s our nemesis, it’s out to destroy us!”

James relocated to Los Angeles with his wife Julia and their two children Max and Carey at the start of 2015 after he was hired to front The Late Late Show, and he lost six stone (38 kilograms) by employing a personal trainer and changing his diet ahead of his new job.

“I’ve cut out sugar and bread, and only eat at mealtimes now. I didn’t realise before that it wasn’t O.K. to constantly graze all day, that this wasn’t a thing and that it was frowned upon,” he told The Daily Mirror newspaper in 2015.

James and Julia have since welcomed a third child, a daughter named Charlotte, who was born in December.

Benedict Cumberbatch is determined to be successful as a movie producer while promoting equality.

The Doctor Strange actor has begun branching out into film production and has been buying up the rights to novels via his SunnyMarch company. As one of his first film projects, he’s chosen to adapt Megan Hunter’s debut book The End We Start From – an environmental thriller that follows a mother and her baby who are forced to become refugees after London is flooded due to climate change.

In an interview with Britain’s Radio Times magazine, Benedict referred to the astonishing success of Marvel’s Black Panther to prove his point that films don’t need to be focused on white male characters to attract huge audiences.

“Our next project is a female story with a female lens about motherhood, in a time of environmental disaster,” he said. “Half the audience is female! And, in terms of diversity, Black Panther is now the third most successful film of all time. The audience is there!”

Announcing his firm bought the rights to the book last year (17), he gushed to Variety, “The End We Start From is a stunning tale of motherhood. Megan has crafted a striking and frighteningly real story of a family fighting for survival that will make everyone stop and think about what kind of planet we are leaving behind for our children. We’re beyond thrilled to be bringing this story to life.”

In the Radio Times interview, the actor also called on male stars to ask what their female colleagues are being paid and pull out of any project where they are not paying equally.

“Equal pay and a place at the table are the central tenets of feminism,” he demanded. “Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.'”

The cast and release date for The End We Start From are yet to be announced.
