Exclusive: A.J. Johnson On How To Indulge This Fall/Winter Season Without Getting Plump



Lets be honest, with fall already here and winter around the corner, we are already dreading the anticipated weight gain. Afterall, this is the season of feasting. The good news is, HipHollywood has leaned how we can consume and indulge, but still be healthy without picking up the extra pounds.

While on the red carpet for Essence’s “A Toast To Prime Time” celebration, we caught up with fitness guru A.J Johnson who gave us tips on how to be healthy this forthcoming holiday season.

“It’s a little different in the A.J. zone because what I like to do is get prepared and do preparation more than survival,” she said. “I say now, Halloween is coming up, eat healthy now so you can have all the candy you want. Halloween, eat clean so you’re ready for Thanksgiving 30 days later. And right after Thanksgiving get in shape so you can indulge for Christmas and New Years. It’s always about preparation and that 90 days you can have fun.”

She added, “Who wants to eat healthy turkey dressing? I don’t. And healthy cranberry sauce? I don’t want to eat that. Get ready for it and then indulge and have a good time.”




Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
