Her Training for Bond Was Minimal
There was no intense diet or training to prep for her role as a Bond girl, Ana recently revealed to Harper's Bazaar. "I tried to have a training plan! My preparation for No Time To Die was not as long as I would have liked it to be. I was shooting Blonde, and I had only a few days to train, so I went straight from Blonde to shoot for Bond. I didn't have the time to actually commit to any kind of diet or workout or training because my schedule just didn't allow for it," she said.
She Does Pilates
Ana recently started doing pilates while shooting a movie in Prague. "I've been going to this beautiful pilates studio very close to my hotel. It's in this gorgeous old majestic building on the top floor with windows to the river," she told Vogue. She explained that the reformer, chair, and bench work was responsible for "keeping me sane" in addition to physically changing her body and her breathing.
She Doesn't Really Diet
Ana has a moderate approach to diet. "It's hard not to get into that dynamic here, not to let them get inside your head. There are too many expectations," she told People en Español. "The truth is that I'm not very disciplined with diets. In general, I do whatever makes me happy in life and food makes me quite happy!"
She Loves to Exercise
"Exercise also makes me happy, but it has to be fun. I do something different every day — one day boxing, the next spinning or weight training — to not get bored," she told People.
She Uses a Theragun for Recovery
Ana is a huge fan of the Theragun Mini. "I hold all of my tension in my shoulders and my legs, and this device is truly incredible. I have two of them: the big one is very intense, and someone has to use it on you; but I also have a mini that I travel with," she told Vogue. "It's a triangle shape that fits anywhere—in all of my purses—and I bring it with me on the plane, to set, to my trailer. Especially on this movie, there's so much action, and this is great for a warm-up before we start the choreography as it activates everything, and you can use it again to cool down. It's a good complement to Epsom salts and arnica cream as it helps the muscles to relax."
