Namaste: Yoga Poses of the Rich and Famous to Inspire You

View Photo Gallery

Yoga is supposed to be non-competitive and about each person’s individual practice. Obviously, celebrities scoff at this. The yoga practice of the rich and famous will make you feel bad about your own inability to reach a full wheel and probably also about your beer belly. Making their practice private property, like everything else they touch, celebrities have commodified the ancient art of yoga.

But! It’s not all bad news. While compiling this post we got SO inspired we had to take a break for a little vinyasa of our own. Downward dogs unite! From Hilaria Baldwins yoga pose a day to Giselle’s adorable yoga with her son; from Irina Shayk managing to make yoga look sexy as hell to Nina Dobrev contorting into shapes that would put Cirque du Soliel to shame, we’ve compiled a list of the celebrity yogis you should be following for yog-spiration.

Angelina Jolie ‘Eats Like a Bird’

Angelina Jolie ‘Eats Like a Bird’

Posted by Adam

ANGELINA Jolie is literally eating like a bird.

The skinny actress has become hooked on foods prepared with “ancient grains” that only a parakeet could love, reports the National Enquirer.

“Angie’s always been a fan of healthy seeds and grains, but lately she’s taken it to a whole new level,” said an insider.

“She’s into eating products made with ‘ancient grains’ and raves about their health benefits. She claims they provide her with nutrients she can’t find anywhere else, plus shinier skin. But the problem is that she’s not balancing her diet with fruits, meats or vegetables.”

“Ancient grains” — such as millet, chia seeds, spelt, buckwheat and quinoa — are truer to their original roots than grains like wheat and rice, which have been bred selectively over thousands of years.

Angelina’s weight has plummeted to a spindly 93 pounds while she’s been directing the film Unbroken in Australia. She is said to have collapsed on the set from exhaustion. Her rail-thin physique has also contributed to unsightly bulging veins in her arms that a source says she plans to combat with laser surgery.

Jolie’s partner Brad Pitt has tried everything to persuade her to eat more, but “there’s no talking to Angie when it comes to food,” the source added.

“The fact that Angie’s replacing her meals with what’s effectively bird food is a huge worry for Brad. Her diet might be healthier but Brad’s telling her she needs to put some meat on those bones! He’s tearing his hair out watching her fade away with each passing day.”

Sorry, Mr. Donaghy, but it looks like your loyal assistant is otherwise engaged – literally.

Maulik Pancholy, who played Alec Baldwin’s overzealous-yet-devoted aide on 30 Rock, announced his engagement to longtime partner Ryan Corvaia on Thursday.

The duo chose quite the spot for the momentous occasion: the Taj Mahal in India.

“It only took 9 years but it’s official! Just got engaged at the Taj Mahal … YEEEESSSS!” Pancholy, who turns 40 next week, wrote on Twitter, and he shared a photo of the duo standing in front of the iconic wonder of the ancient world.

Pancholy, who is of Indian heritage, came out in November.

“I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner,” he told Out magazine. “It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions.”

The actor, who had recurring roles in Weeds and Whitney, currently voices Sanjay on the Nickelodeon cartoon Sanjay and Craig.

Corvaia is the founder and owner of a Brooklyn-based catering and hospitality firm called Dish Food & Events, according to his Twitter page.
