Featured Article: Nina Dobrev & Vanessa Hudgens for Cosmopolitan US September 2018


Nina Dobrev and Vanessa Hudgens have a few things in common: They’re both about to turn 30. They’re both Coachella goddesses who can ignite a trend with the tap of a ’gram. And they’ve both dismantled Disney-fied images. Good-bye, PG-rated teen idoldom; hello, complicated splendor of womanhood. First stop? Their new big-screen comedy, Dog Days (opens August 10th).

Vanessa on her favorite day with her BFFs: “My favorite day with my girlfriends is having everyone over to my house, lying by the pool, drinking rosé, listening to music, and dancing.”

Nina on being careful on what she shares on social media: “I don’t typically post photos with significant others, which is funny, because when I do post a photo with a guy, the media will pick it up and assume I’m dating him. It makes me laugh because, in reality, if he is on my Instagram, that means I’m not dating him!”

Nina and Vanessa on if they’ve had any #MeToo encounters:

Nina: “Like any woman in every industry, yes. Comments have been made. People have said things that are inappropriate. I’ve been able to handle myself and speak up for the most part. But I have seen a lot.”

Vanessa: “I have been very fortunate not to have had any direct run-ins, but I’ve seen it happen. I’m grateful that we’re living in an age when women are finally heard.”

Nina on her daredevil side: “I am attracted to doing scary things. I might have a slight addiction to firsts. When you’ve never done something before, you don’t know what to expect. It’s the fear of the unknown. It keeps you on your toes.”

Featured Article: Danai Gurira for Women’s Health US July 2018


The star of The Walking Dead, Black Panther and this spring’s blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War covers the July/August 2018 issue of Women’s Health US magazine, photographed by Ben Watts.

Inside, the 40-year-old reveals how staying mentally and physically fit is the only way she can tackle her to-do list – which includes running the nonprofit she co-founded, Almasi Arts, as well as adapting the award-winning novel Americanah into a TV miniseries.

On her Sunday routine: “Creating ritualized time and space to nurture myself is something I’m constantly trying to figure out and develop. There’s nothing more fun, more replenishing, than a Sunday of walking in nature, enjoying friends’ company, or having a great meal.”

On her 4x/week session with trainer AJ Fisher: A typical workout for Danai includes lots of circuit training and Pilates-inspired moves, in which she alternates high-intensity intervals and active rest. Fisher has Danai wear a heart monitor and use resistance bands, which the actress travels with so she can do her workouts no matter where she is in the world. Every workout also includes glute work. “Sometimes it’s so intense I can’t remember what we did.”

On exercise as therapy: “If I haven’t worked out, if I haven’t exercised and connected with my body in some way, it chips away at my feeling of well-being.”

On staying motivated to workout: “I don’t think anyone loves working out all the time,” she admits – but says that feeling her body engage during a sweat session can be really exhilarating and rewarding. When she’s sore from a workout, she focuses on the positive. “It’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m in so much pain from that’. It’s like ‘Oh, I feel the strength in my core, I feel the strength in my back’.” (source)
