Your lifestyle, your quirk
Malin Ackerman is the rare hot girl who can admit she is good-looking, admit she hit the jackpot with good genes, and for some reason, you don’t get the urge to smack her. Why not? Probably because she also works hard to keep her body in shape and isn’t afraid to admit that, either.
Malin’s star has risen, and the Swedish-Canadian beauty is about to be everywhere in Hollywood. Her next movie, Rock of Ages, which she costars in with Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, and Stacy Keibler, will be in theaters next month.
The 34-year-old actress can currently be seen rocking a gold bikini on the cover of Shape magazine. Within the magazine, she is also photographed in a red and blue plaid bikini and a crocheted black swimsuit cover-up. She looks incredibly toned and fresh -faced in every picture.
Malin, who was born in Sweden and moved to Canada with her parents when she was two, admits she inherited good genes from her mother – a former model – but insists she also works hard to keep her body in its current bikini form.
"I'm not going to lie: I was born with good genes [her mother was also a model]. But when I overindulge, I can get a paunch in my belly. And I've always wished I had more beef in my booty."
So how does Malin maintain her beautiful body? She gives in to her cravings and doesn’t deny herself anything – but she does indulge within reason.
"Oh, believe me, I have my splurges. I can't live without chocolate. Though I barely consider it an indulgence because it's good for you. I also love a thick steak and French fries. I try not to eat them more than once a week, but if they somehow land on the table in front of me, I won't hold back. You've got to allow yourself the things you enjoy or you'll just be miserable."
Malin also understands that exercise is an important piece of the puzzle, along with smart eating and drinking.
"I love to drink wine, but when I avoid it, I have so much more energy – and that's what I need when I'm focusing on my body."
With her career taking off, a new movie about to release, and her body looking amazing in a swimsuit, Malin has never been happier.
"I have a lot more energy and focus – not to mention self-confidence. Now when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, that's what I see reflecting back."
