Recently engaged Gabrielle Union, 41, divulged her unorthodox approach to keeping her fabulous physique on Conan Monday night: an exercise and diet regimen she dubbed “The Porn Diet.”
Her gurus? Adult film stars, who happen to work out at her gym.
When host Conan O’Brien asked whether she watches them exercise near her, like on the Stairmaster, Union amusingly replied, “Yep, and I’ll be on the next one going, ‘You’re not getting off before me!’ ”
But the Porn Diet doesn’t end there. Union, who said yes after basketball star Dwyane Wade popped the question last month, also vicariously receives weight-loss tips from the adult performers, by spying on them at the gym’s juice bar.
“I’ll watch and see what they’re ordering,” the Being Mary Jane star said, adding that they appear to adhere to a vegan diet based on what they choose.
And how, exactly, does she know how her fellow gym-goers make their living? She told O’Brien she recognizes them, which made the host blush.
Sounds like it’s going to be one heck of a honeymoon.
