International movie stars, TV personalities and music idols have an enviable lifestyle and keep themselves in perfect shape. Luckily, some of them, decided to share with fans their cooking recipes and healthy living secrets in quite tasty cookbooks. My favorites till now?
Academy Award winner, Gwyneth Paltrow started writing cookbooks much before it was a trend and she always kept true to herself sharing easy to prepare and very healthy recipes that make you feel good and light. She has actually started a whole new life far from the movie sets and she implemented her following thanks to the advices anybody can find on her Goop website, born right after the publishing of her first book. Check it out!
Stanley Tucci is without doubt a real acting guru that can make the difference with his always various and intense interpretations, The Devil Wears Prada and Julie&Julia would not be the same films without him and, fo course in my Food and the Movies heart, I adore him for Big Night….what a picture! Being Italian he is also a genius cook 🙂 and he had an amazing granma Concetta, that could feed her family like a godesse so why not publishing his own Italian recipes’ collection? Great idea, Stanley! I heard next book is in the making, I can’t wait!
TV personalities are also very much invested in connecting with their fans making them feel part of their lives. That is why former “Desperate Housewife” Eva Longoria, iconic “Buffy” Sarah Michelle Gellar and American talk show Emperess Oprah Winfrey produced cookbooks based on their personal experiences. Moreover, Oprah struggled for a good part of her life with weight and in her publication she really opens up on her new healthy lifestyle and dieting choices.
What’s rapper Coolio doing in this list? Well, like Gwyneth, he started back in 2008 showing his great passion for food making and he actually had a fun YouTube channel Cooking with Coolio: it’s a little old style, but I just love it!!!
Let’s not forget the unforgettable movie stars!
Sophia Loren, Paul Newman, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne…in their times it was more difficult to get to know them as persons instaed of amazing talented, succesful and good looking actors that entered in our life only through big or small screens. Can you imagine Sophia and Audrey cooking for their kids or Paul and John in the backyard getting the barbecue ready? Maybe not, and yet they did: these books tell you all about it!
