She rode an enormous metal lion and made people in shark suits famous. After more than half a decade of creating hit after hit, Perry has cemented her status as an A-list singer.
Perry is like the rest of us in the fact that she doesn’t like to do the traditional gym workouts. Instead, Perry sticks to a low calorie and high vitamin diet, and enjoys long walks and bicycling. It’s important to stay in shape when your concerts require a lot of energy, and Perry has certainly maintained a great level of fitness.

Even after having two children, Alba appears to be one of the fittest celebs out there. She looks just as good as she did when she first got into acting, which is quite the accomplishment

#11 – Rihanna
Rihanna has been around for over 10 years in the music industry, so it might be hard for some to believe that she’s only 27 years old. Rihanna got into the good graces of Jay-Z’s record label, and throughout her career, she has recorded multiple number one hits, which has made her extremely wealthy.
With wealth, it can be tempting to sit back and take it easy, but Rihanna continues to hit the gym as hard as she hits the music studio. Rihanna has been rumored to have a personal trainer on her payroll that is available at all hours of the day. That means if she wakes up at 3:00 in the morning and wants someone to coach her through a workout, they will be available. Rihanna’s tenacity will ensure that she stays around for quite some time.

What might shock some is that Lopez is 45 years old and has two children. Lopez uses her own body as a weight for exercise, swearing by squats and lunges without using huge barbells and weight plates. It has certainly worked for her.
#9 – Julianne Hough
Julianne Hough was not a household name until “Dancing with the Stars” premiered on ABC. Since then, Hough has been selected by movie producers to star in films, and she has even dabbled in the music industry. Hough has used her dance career to get into movies such as “Footloose” and “Rock of Ages”. Here’s a fun fact: an 11-year-old Hough was an extra in the first “Harry Potter” movie.
Since Hough is an active dancer, it’s no surprise that she’s been able to stay in tremendous shape. Hough even created a fitness video to show us her biggest calorie burning dance moves. She loves snacks, but doesn’t indulge in junk food very often. Instead, Hough is a big fan of veggies and hummus, which is easy to burn off.

#7 – Hayden Panettiere

Eva Longoria started out in beauty pageants, but her look could not be contained to competitions.

#4 – Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens started out in musical theater and appeared in the production “The Wizard of Oz”. She was then chosen to be in the sitcom “Still Standing”. Hudgens’s first massive success was when she was cast in the Disney Channel original film, “High School Musical”, which is still one of the most watched premieres in the history of cable television. Since then, she has appeared in movies such as “Machete Kills” and “Spring Breakers” to maintain her fame.
Hudgens has admitted that she is a chocoholic, but that hasn’t done any damage to her great figure. That’s because she spends a lot of time at the gym and in the dance studio. Dancing is a high intensity form of cardio that can burn a lot of calories pretty quickly.
#3 – Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde got started in acting because she had the perfect look for film that lead to her first roles in “Skin” and “The O.C.”. Many took notice of the gorgeous actress and she was soon cast in bigger roles in movies like “Tron: Legacy” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”. With more upcoming roles, Wilde is going to be keeping busy for the foreseeable future.
Wilde is also staying busy at home now that she has a child with her husband, Jason Sudeikis. The dynamic pair have gotten into working out together. Olivia does cardio five times a week and lifts weights three times a week. The workouts have gotten tougher as she has built strength and even does MMA each week at her gym.
#2 – Alex Morgan
Alex Morgan became one of the best known female soccer players in the world when she was on the United States National Team during the 2011 World Cup. Now, at just 25 years old, Morgan is on the team once again and has many male admirers with her beautiful smile and amazing ability on the field.
Since soccer is a high cardio event, Morgan has been able to stay in tremendous shape. During the off-season, Morgan likes to run and do yoga, as well as swim laps in the pool. It takes a lot of exercise to become a world class athlete who has won an Olympic gold medal and Morgan seems to never stop moving. If you want to see her in action, she is a member of the Portland Thorns soccer team in the National Women’s Soccer League.
#1 – Cameron Diaz
Just like Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz is also in her 40’s but does not look her age. Diaz started out in acting around the same time as Lopez when she appeared opposite Jim Carrey in “The Mask”. Her look turned heads, and soon, Diaz was offered roles in many different movies. She still stars in feature films today
Throughout the years, one way that Diaz has been able to stay relevant in films is due to her great work ethic in the gym. Diaz eats a very clean diet that doesn’t include any of the junk food that a lot of us have trouble avoiding. Diaz has even released a book to show people how to get the same body that she has. It’s a wonder that it’s not the best-selling book of the last decade because a lot of people would kill to look like her.
