Marisa Tomei’s Hot Bod
She turned heads in “The Wrestler,” now you can, too
-Paige Herman Axel
Marisa Tomei just snagged an Oscar nomination for her role in The Wrestler, but we think she also deserves a prize in the category of one of Hollywood’s best bodies in the over-40 set (and the under-40 set, for that matter). So how did she get in shape for her role as a seasoned stripper? A hula hoop. Yes, you read that correctly, a hula hoop.
From burning calories to toning your muscles, believe it or not, hula hooping (called “hooping” by fitness insiders) is a terrific, fun workout. The hooping classes at well-known Rayna McInturf’s Hoopnotica in Los Angeles are always jam-packed, but you don’t have to live in Southern California to try it for yourself. Just go to hoopnotica.com to buy a hoop that fits your personality (Harajuku Girl, anybody?) and an instructional DVD and before you know it, you’ll be hooked and hooping your way to a trimmer, tighter body!
