Fergie gained 17 pounds with Penelope Cruz
Did you recently think Fergie was pregnant, just because she put on a smidge of weight and was marrying Josh Duhamel? Sorry to shatter your preconceptions, but the truth is the director of Nine told both she and Penelope Cruz to gain 17 pounds or so for the role -- something they had no problem doing.
"We were eating our brains out, she says in the new issue of Allure. "We ordered everything fried and full of fat and salty."
But getting the weight off after filming proved to be a problem. She couldn't lose it on her own, and eventually hired Duhamel's trainer to force her through two-hour sessions several times a week.
"It was a very gradual thing, getting back into it and finally letting a trainer train me," she says. "I didn't want to be told what to do, and I wasn't mentally ready to crack the whip."
That leaves us wondering, just how much airbrushing is being done on the cover of the new mag, then?
