If there is one undercover secret all Bond girls know, it's that getting in shape is a must when starring in the action-packed franchise. Ahead of the much anticipated opening of No Time To Die on October 8, current and former Bond girls — including Ana de Armas, Halle Berry and Eva Green — spill on their workout tips!
Ana De Armas
For the newest Bond girl, prepping to play a CIA agent in No Time to Die opposite Daniel Craig was no easy feat. “I [had] to prepare with really intense, physical work, training and choreographies,” she said. Luckily, the 33-year-old star was already in peak condition, thanks to her super-active lifestyle. “I do something different every day — one day boxing, the next spinning or weight training — to not get bored,” she revealed. “Exercise makes me happy, but it has to be fun.”
The gorgeous 55-year-old doesn’t look a day older than she did in her iconic bikini scene in 2002’s Die Another Day. How does Berry do it? She follows a ketogenic diet and works out regularly with trainer Peter Lee Thomas. “These days, I do yoga and stretch, I sprint fast, I work with my own bodyweight, weights and resistance bands and I practice martial arts,” she’s said, adding that her go-to move for tight abs is a plank. “Everything you do radiates from a strong core.”
“My secret to staying in shape is consistency. When I consistently stick to my routine, that is when I feel my best,” said the 50-year-old, who starred alongside Pierce Brosnan in 1999’s The World Is Not Enough. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum loves to dance and hike, but revealed Pilates is her favorite form of exercise. “I have tried everything out there you can imagine — weights, classes, everything,” she said, “and for me, the best thing my body responds to is Pilates.”
The stunning French star of 2006’s Casino Royale has admitted she’s not a huge gym rat. “I’m not some crazy Hollywood fitness type,” she’s said. To stay in shape, she eats clean, sticking to lots of organic steamed or raw veggies and immune-boosting green juices with kale, broccoli, watercress, cabbage and apples. And she pounds the pavement regularly. “I run every day for between 20 and 30 minutes,” shared Green, 41, who also trained hard to play a trapeze artist in 2019’s Dumbo. “It’s a good way just to let it all out.”
