Actress Rebecca Ferguson on What It Takes to Get a Mission: Impossible Body

Actress Rebecca Ferguson

When actress Rebecca Ferguson calls from Sweden on a recent Wednesday afternoon, she’s just been for a bike ride through the golden rapeseed fields near the small fishing village she calls home. “They were towering over my head,” says the actress dreamily. “If you walk into them, you just disappear.” That she might find such solitude appealing is understandable. Next month she’ll begin a whirlwind press tour for her lead role in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation, a project that will have her hitting red carpets around the globe alongside costar Tom Cruise while cementing her place as a rising international star. For the next few days at least, she’ll let her auburn hair dry in the breeze and apply coconut oil and sunscreen to her freckled skin before returning to work on the London set of her next project, Florence Foster Jenkins, where she’ll play opposite Meryl Streep. Clothing options will be relegated to “wooly jumpers and socks. It’s a complete different energy—a beautiful contrast.”

If the tall, fresh-faced 31-year old mother with self-professed vertigo doesn’t seem like a natural for the stunt-heavy Mission Impossible franchise, her résumé tells a different story. Ferguson’s critically acclaimed turn as Queen Elizabeth in 2013’s The White Queen proved not only her chops for playing a powerful woman, but also an ability to endure her fair share of physical obstacles. “Those dresses were so heavy,” she remembers with a laugh. So, too, did her years spent dancing and teaching Argentine tango—an off-screen passion that has provided ample training in the art of on-screen combat. “There’s so much tango in [fight] choreography.” Here, Ferguson talks about overcoming her fear of heights in favor of 120-foot falls, what to eat to stay in the best shape of your life, and how to maintain a natural beauty routine while keeping aging at bay.

How did the Mission: Impossible role come about?
I met with the casting director first. I got a call while I was filming The Red Tent in Morocco, sitting on a camel named Barbie, that I would need to meet with Tom [Cruise] and Chris [McQuarrie] in London. I flew there, and 24 hours later I was back on Barbie. They came back [to Morocco] to see if I could pick up choreography and to look at how I moved.

The physical aspect of filming a blockbuster action film must be quite rigorous.
When I first arrived, they drove me straight from the airport to the gym. For the next month and half, I trained for six hours, five or six days a week. Everything was physical.

What kind of training did it take to prepare?
Pilates was the ground floor. It’s such a good way of keeping your body safe. There is so much technique in fighting—how do you hold your fist, where does the motion come from. I had to learn to run fast—so we did a lot of explosive running. When we started filming, we kept the training up as much as possible. When you see a sequence that is 30 seconds long, it has taken weeks of preparation.

Tom Cruise is famous for doing his own stunts—were you expected to do your own, too?
I did nearly all of the stunts myself. I knew I could back out at any second—they had a stunt double ready. But I think that’s what made me do it. I had to jump off a Vienna rooftop with my legs strapped around Tom Cruise on the first day! Later on in the film, there’s a 120-foot fall. It is scary. You need to get a lot of camera angles, so we had to do it ten times!

With such an active set life, how do you stay healthy? Is there an on-site nutritionist?
Yes, because much goes into the training regimen. If you start being stupid and think that you’re going to look good because you don’t eat, you won’t be able to get through it. We’re given good carbs, good protein, lots of sweet potatoes. [My food plan] was completely dependent on the scene that I was doing. If I wasn’t exercising too much, I ate more salads and vegetables. I did cut out sugar for eight months.

This isn’t the first time that you’ve undergone a major physical transformation for work. You also dyed your hair blonde for The White Queen.
It’s not a big deal for me. I’m an actress. Storytelling and transformation [is part of that], and I will take it to a point where it’s healthy.

In terms of your skin, you’re quite fair. What’s your approach?
It’s not very sunny where I live, but I do wear SPF 30. I like having a bit of a tan, but that’s not more important than my skin. I like quite pure beauty products—I will use organic coconut oil or rose oil to moisturize. When I get tired of the smells I get into the habit of using olive oil. I’ll also create my own face mask with Manuka honey. It’s incredible—and you can eat it if you’re feeling a bit ill. I make a simple peel out of coffee grounds, too, with water and a little bit of oil and coffee. I love the smell. And I like Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream on my elbows, nails, and sometimes on my lashes. It accentuates the eyes.

What else do you do for makeup?
Little enhancements. A little bit of mascara—I always end up buying Max Factor 2000 Calorie Dramatic Volume. I’m used to it: I like the brush, it doesn’t elongate the lashes too much, and I’m quite pale, so it just gives a little bit. I like my freckles, so on set I love finding a base that doesn’t look or feel like I’m wearing very much makeup but just takes away red spots. If I’m going out, I’ll put a harder hand on something—a lip or an eyeliner. I keep the colors pretty earthy. I like lilacs because I think it brings out the green in my eyes.

Jay Z & Beyonce Bailed Out Ferguson & Baltimore Protesters

(AllHipHop News) “The purist form of giving is anonymous” and “You don’t know all the s*t I do for the homies,” raps Jay Z on “Nickels and Dimes.” On the song, the Brooklyn emcee was hinting that he does a lot of philanthropic work that the public may not know about. Writer/activist Dream Hampton actually revealed some of Jay’s quiet charity on Twitter.

[ALSO READ: Beyonce And Jay Z Met The Families Of Freddie Gray And Mike Brown]

The co-author of Jay’s 2010 book Decoded posted tweets claiming he and wife Beyoncé spent “tens of thousands” of dollars bailing out protesters in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland. Hampton later deleted the tweets, but she did confirm the information with The Guardian. The British publication could not confirm exactly which protesters received funds or when they were bailed out.

“I’m going to tweet this and I don’t care if Jay gets mad,” tweeted Hampton on Sunday. “When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I [hit] Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, [he] wired tens of thousands in mins.”

Hampton also wrote the Carters gave money to the Black Lives Matter organization, but the two superstars asked their donations not be made public.

Barack Obama Banters With Jimmy Kimmel About Life In The White House, Ferguson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Barack Obama read “Mean Tweets” on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, but he was unfazed.

After enduring the routine — in which celebrities read hostile Twitter comments about themselves — Obama told Kimmel, “You should see what the Senate says about me.” The president also joked about the perks and restrictions he faces, revealing that he’s not allowed to use cellphones that have recorders in them. (Hence his ever-present BlackBerry.) He also noted that he can visit the dentist in the White House basement but doesn’t text and can’t drive.

Kimmel asked if that was because you have to have a birth certificate to get a driver’s license.

Obama — whom Kimmel introduced as the “first Kenyan-born Muslim Socialist ever elected president” — deadpanned that Kenyans “drive on the other side” of the road.

With Sean Penn waiting in the wings, Obama said he was quite familiar with Penn’s 1982 coming-of-age comedy “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”

“I lived it,” Obama said. “I didn’t just see it.”

Kimmel spared the president from questions about the latest controversy involving the Secret Service — although Kimmel’s security guard and sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez, dressed in a full Secret Service getup of dark suit and sunglasses. The glasses, Kimmel joked, were simply hiding a hangover: “Secret cerveza.”

Obama’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” fulfilled a commitment the White House made after he had to postpone an appearance last year.

During a more subdued segment, Obama reflected on Wednesday night’s shooting of two police officers in racially tense Ferguson, Missouri, just days after he had delivered a speech on racial healing in Selma, Alabama.

“What had been happening in Ferguson was oppressive and objectionable and was worthy of protest, but there was no excuse for criminal acts,” he said.

“Whoever fired those shots should not detract from the issue — they are criminals, they need to be arrested. And then what we need to do is make sure that like-minded, good-spirited people on both sides — law enforcement, who have a terrifically tough job, and people who understandably don’t want to be stopped and harassed just because of their race — that they are able to work together to come up with some good answers.”

After the “Kimmel” taping, Obama attended a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the Santa Monica home of Chris Silbermann, president of ICM Partners, one of the top talent agencies in Hollywood. The event was closed to the press, but a Democratic official said the event attracted about 25 people who each paid up to $ 33,400.

On Friday, Obama is flying to Phoenix to hold a roundtable event on veterans’ health care.

Publisher: St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Seller: St. Louis Post-Dispatch LLC


On Aug. 9, 2014, Michael Brown, 18, was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. In the hours after the unarmed teen’s death, people gathered to protest the shooting. The police responded by blocking the road to the scene and coming out with canine units and riot gear. The events reignited the issue of race in America. The Post-Dispatch photography staff immersed itself in the story, from covering the big moments when thousands of mourners came for Brown’s funeral, to the smaller moments such as a gospel choir’s serenade from the back of a flatbed truck. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has covered this story from Day One. From the thousands of images the staff has produced, the best were selected for this book.

Chris Rock on Ferguson, Black Progress and Future for His Kids

AP chris rock jtm 141201 16x9 608 Chris Rock on Ferguson, Black Progress and Future for His Kids

Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP Photo

Despite recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, Chris Rock remains optimistic about the future, especially for his daughters.

“I mean, I almost cry every day. I drop my kids off and watch them in the school with all these mostly white kids, and I got to tell you, I drill them every day: ‘Did anything happen today? Did anybody say anything?’ They look at me like I am crazy,” the father of two told New York magazine.

“It’s partly generational, but it’s also my kids grew up not only with a black president but with a black secretary of State, a black joint chief of staff, a black attorney general. My children are going to be the first black children in the history of America to actually have the benefit of the doubt of just being moral, intelligent people,” Rock said.

Rock told interviewer Frank Rich that it’s not black people who have progressed so much as whites.

“To say Obama is progress is saying that he’s the first black person that is qualified to be president. That’s not black progress. That’s white progress,” Rock said. “There’s been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years.”

He continued, “There have been smart, educated, beautiful, polite black children for hundreds of years. The advantage that my children have is that my children are encountering the nicest white people that America has ever produced. Let’s hope America keeps producing nicer white people.”

After a grand jury in Missouri declined to bring charges against police officer Darren Wilson last week for the Aug. 9 shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown, Rock took to Twitter to voice his displeasure of the decision.

“A system cannot fail those it was never meant to protect,” he wrote, quoting W.E.B. Du Bois.

New Report Suggests Ferguson Witness Lied During Investigation

More questions have arisen, as details continue to emerge following a grand jury’s decision not to indict former Officer Darren Wilson in relation to the murder of unarmed teen Michael Brown. As a federal investigation continues, The Smoking Gun has uncovered information which suggests that one of the key eyewitnesses lied during her testimony.

Sandra McElroy, revealed to be “Witness 40″, told the grand jury  that Brown had “battered Wilson then rushed the cop like a defensive end,” a talking point which was later picked up by a number of publications including Fox News. Ironically however, it has been discovered that McElroy was not even in the vicinity during the shooting.

Shortly after the grand jury verdict she posted a picture of the crime scene with a caption that read “Michael Brown already received justice. So please stop asking for it.” Even more disturbing is the fact that she has admitted to being bipolar yet admits she doesn’t take medication to regulate the mental illness.

On December 16 Rev. Al Sharpton claimed the report provided the Brown family with additional hope. “[It’s] not a fair process” Sharpton told the New York Daily News.
