9. Helena Christensen –  “It’s the usual story, I was super-skinny, mocked by other kids,” she says in the April issue of InStyle. “I started to fill out at 18, 19, but I can still feel the pain of all those years. Maybe because I dealt with those issues growing up, I wasn’t going to let anyone make me feel uncomfortable about my body again.” (Photo: Bauer-Griffin) 11. Uma Thurman – Uma walks, practices yoga, and pilates to stay in shape. She also enjoys horse back riding, skiing, and snowboarding. To prepare for her role in Kill Bill, Thurman lost 50 pounds using the nutrifit system, running and walking on the treadmill, and stretching. Uma was also required to practice dozens of kicks each day, sometimes for a full hour a day. She also spent hours every afternoon learning how to wield a samurai sword by working with the Chinese martial-arts expert Master Wo-Ping Yuen and Sonny Chiba (Photo: Splash News)
