Born in Chicago, Illinois on December 19, 1963, American actress and then-teenage model Jennifer Beals is known to be multiracial because of her father’s African-American descent and her mother’s Irish-American ancestry. Growing up in Chicago, Jennifer had long dreamed of becoming an actress. When she was in her high school, she used to participate in different school plays while volunteering at the Steppenwolf Theatre. In 1980, Jennifer was already seen portraying a significant role on screen when she was cast in My Bodyguard, a comedy film mixed with drama directed by Tony Bill. Eventually, she became popular when she was highlighted in Flashdance which stresses out her talent in dancing. Nowadays, the actress is highly regarded as one of the successful celebrities in the industry. Her recent film Cinemanovels was showed last year and gained positive remarks.
What’s more impressive about Jennifer apart from her exceptional talent in acting is that she also looks fit and healthy as seen in her movies and TV shows. How does she keep it up? Well, the actress is mostly seen working and sweating it out when she’s off the screen–and she does it not in the gym but outside where she can run and freely breathe fresh air. According to the actress during her interview with the Runners World, “Running helps you certainly to be fit because it gives you energy.”
On the other hand, Jennifer is also keen when it comes to the foods that she eats. She is very well known to be an activist on the toxins. And to be able to get rid of foods with high amount of toxins, she is well-motivated to consume fresh fruits, veggies, and lean meat. She’s also making it sure she gets a good amount of antioxidants and Omega-3s to come up a beautiful and younger look.
