Brooklyn covers May/June issue of Women’s Health UK magazine. The cover and the shoot are a reprint, however the issue does feature a couple photos we have not seen before:
In the magazine Brooklyn reveals she was in awe of 44-year-old Jennifer Aniston’s flawless figure on the set of their 2011 film “Just Go With It.”
When Brooklyn was asked who she would want to play her body double, she said, “it’s got to be Jennifer. She’s so active and had to be in a bikini for ‘Just Go With It’ — she just had this glow about her. I was a bit awestruck!”
Brooklyn dished that she passed up the opportunity to work out with the former “Friends” star at the time because she felt a little self-conscious. “I was invited to do yoga with her on set but they had so many good yogis I was intimidated and chickened out,” she admitted.
The 25-year-old stunner, who is married to tennis pro Andy Roddick, went on to talk about her hubby’s perception of beauty. “The biggest thing for me about being with Andy is that athletes in general tend to appreciate different things about women’s bodies. They’re not so concerned with how someone looks, more about how strong and healthy they are. For me it’s taken the emphasis off my looks and appearance — the emphasis modeling ingrained in me — and given me a healthier outlook on the female form. Being married to an athlete has changed my perception of women and what my body is capable of.”
The actress-model, who is undeniably in tip-top shape, revealed how she keeps a balanced diet, especially with all the food temptations on set. “Imagine the best junk food you’ve ever seen, available 24 hours a day — that’s what sets are like. There are sweets and doughnuts in front of me all the time. My rule of thumb is that if I’m working, I eat healthily. I have such a sweet tooth that I can’t let myself indulge because work is where I spend most of my time, so when I’m at work, no bad food.”
Her latest workout secret is using weights to tone up. “I’ve always been really into sports and fitness but have just recently discovered the joys of lifting weights … I feel like weights are something women are hesitant to do because they think it’s going to bulk them up, but I’ve found the exact opposite. I’m my most lean when I’m lifting.”
