Rebecca Alie Romijn, simply known as Rebecca Romijn, is an American actress and former fashion model born on November 6, 1972 in Berkeley, California, USA to parents Elizabeth and Jaap Romijn. Once a music student at the University of California, Santa Cruz, she had also a penchant for modeling which made her decide to pursue it and move to Paris. When she was able to pursue modeling, she was highlighted in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue as well as in Victoria’s Secret and Giorgio Armani. In 1997, she considered acting as her new career as she was cast in one of the episodes of the American sitcom Friends. She rose to prominence in the year 2000 when she was cast as Raven Darkholme or Mystique in the action, superhero film X-Men. Her latest TV exposure was in the TV series King & Maxwell where she played as a private investigator.
When it comes to keeping her body in prime shape, the sexy actress observes a healthy and active lifestyle followed by a specific diet. For about eight years, Rebecca has continuously and regularly performed Pilates–even up to these days. She also walks on treadmill for about 40 minutes and attends yoga sessions.
She also shares that she was able to achieve the kind of body that she had in X-Men by eliminating sugar and alcohol on her diet. Other than that, she also worked hard on an elliptical machine for about 45 minutes a day. She also shares the typical foods that she usually consumes nowadays. “Lean fish, lots of sashimi, spinach, salad with lemon juice and salt and pepper, and chicken breast. Eventually I started having red meat again, and that’s when I got the biggest energy surge,” she says.
