Sundance Film Festival 2013 Celebrity Round Up
Every year, the stars come out in droves to Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival — where each year it becomes less and less about the films and more and more about the parties and swag suites. For those that don’t know what “swag” means — it’s free sh*t — and the stars love every bit of it! MJ was (un)fortunately not there this year, but here’s a round up of where the stars were out and about all week:
Matthew McConaughey, Ron Livingston and Allison Janey came through the Samsung Galaxy Lounge at the Village At The Lift in Park City to learn about the newest Samsung devices. According to insiders, McConaughey’s not pigging out to gain back weight after dropping nearly 50 pounds for a film role. “Matthew is on a special diet to put on weight, He’s eating fish because it’s healthier.”

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Matthew McConaughey
Their beautiful wedding ceremony took place in their Austin, Texas home and they walked down the isle to John Mellencamp. The singer composed an original song based on a Bible verse that the newlyweds chose.
The wedding was far from traditional, being that the couple opted out of the ritual of cutting the cake and the first dance.
The couple danced the night away in a spacious luxury tent and ate delicious Brazilian meats. A wedding guest said, “You could definitely tell Matthew was in love. It was a great night for everyone.”
Congrats, you (gorgeous) two!Read More

Celebrity Trainer Harley Pasternak’s Summer Workout Tips! – EXCLUSIVE
It’s Summertime, so the beaches are heating up, and MJ‘s favorite stars are bearing their bikini bods for the pages of the magazines. But so many people want to know how they, too, can look like the stars… Well, who better to ask than trainer-to-the-stars Harley Pasternak (trainer to stars like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Hudson, Halle Berry, and Alicia Keys)?
MJ: What is the biggest misconception (or what are the biggest misconceptions) about how to lose weight the right way?
Harley: I think the biggest misconception that people have about losing weight the right way is that you have to spend three or four hours a day at the gym or that they have to starve yourself. The truth is, it’s not necessary. You can spend as little as 25 minutes a day at the gym and eat five times a day and still get fantastic results. The key to losing weight the right way, is not about maximizing the amount of exercise that you do, but optimizing it. It’s not about starving yourself, but eating the right foods and the right amount. When you starve yourself, you’re actually slowing down your metabolism and setting yourself up for future weight gain. So don’t starve yourself, don’t spend hours a day at the gym and whatever you do, ask yourself, ‘can I keep this up for the rest of my life?’ If the answer is no, don’t start.
MJ: You train Lady Gaga (among many other stars) and I have always been impressed with her endurance while on stage. She’s singing like crazy while dancing like a maniac. What’s the key to having good endurance? How does one “build up” their endurance?
Harley: Endurance isn’t about maximizing your intensity or increasing the amount you can lift. You need to gradually build up your endurance and work on increasing the length of time you do an exercise at a certain intensity. So don’t get discouraged if your endurance isn’t at the level as Lady Gaga…yet! Just keep training and keep a positive attitude.
MJ: Jennifer Hudson looks incredible but she couldn’t have lost all the weight on just Weight Watchers alone. She had to do some serious training in the gym. How many hours would you estimate J-Hud spends working out nowadays to maintain her bod? What kinds of exercises did you do with J-Hud to slim down her figure?
Harley: Many people overestimate the amount of time celebs train at the gym. Often times, many celebrities are just as busy as anyone else. Jennifer Hudson is an incredible woman and a great client. To get Jennifer in the shape that she’s in now, she gradually increased the amount of cardio that she did on a daily basis. We got her taking walks with her baby and we slowly added in resistance training. She started doing these 25 minute 5 factor workouts daily and adding that in along with her nutrition program. And she went from doing one a day once a week resistant workouts to two, three, four, five times a week and now exercise is just a part of her everyday life.
MJ: It’s Summertime so people are headed to the beach. What are some of your favorite beach (or poolside!) workouts ala Matthew Mcconaughey?
Harley: The beach is a great place to do exercise! There are many different exercises you can do on the beach. You can go for a walk or go running. You can put a towel down, get a suntan and every once in a while do some abdominal movements or squats. What’s great about the beach is it’s not a flat surface, so simple exercises can challenge different muscles and different parts of your body.
