It should come as no surprise that Ryan Reynolds works out – a lot.

PEOPLE’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive has arguably the best abs in Hollywood (as his wife, Blake Lively, 28, proudly showed off in a shirtless Instagram pic). But, when it comes to his fitness regime, the Deadpool star says it’s all just part of his routine.

“I get depressed if I don’t move,” Reynolds, 39, said in the March issue of Men’s Health, on stands February 2. “So for me, that’s enough. I don’t necessarily need to have 400 pounds on my back in the squat rack and then take a picture of myself and send it out to my Twitter followers: ‘Part of the 400-pound club today.’ I like to hike and go biking, that kind of thing. Get outside, move my body, get some fresh air pumping through my lungs. That’s my idea of a workout now.”

And, by now, the actor is referring to his fitness routine as he nears 40, like the warm up. “I never did stuff like that back in my 20s. But I’m that guy now. I’m the guy doing calisthenics. I’m doing jumping jacks and deep knee bends. I work out like a British person.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
