After the Emmy Awards on September 17, 2017, celebrities were all people could talk about. What do celebrities do in their spare time? Something you might not know is some of these celebrities happen to be swimmers! All will be revealed on AquaMobile’s list of six celebrities you didn’t know were swimmers!
Celebrity Swimmer #1: Nicole Kidman
With an outstanding acceptance speech at the Emmy Awards, who can forget this famous actress? She is the winner of the Award for Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie in Big Little Lies. That’s quite an impressive resume!
Alongside acting, she also likes to swim both leisurely and to work out. For those of you wondering how some celebs keep a slim trim figure, here’s how. Kidman sometimes likes to swim with her sister for 30 minutes each day. A love for acting and the water, what can’t this woman do!?
Celebrity Swimmer #2: Natalie Portman
This beautiful starlet underwent intensive ballet training for her critically acclaimed role in Black Swan. The movie went on to become very successful thanks to her impressive performance as a dancer.
However, this training took a toll on Portman’s body. So she turned to swimming to ease her muscle pain. Because you were only using a small portion of body weight while swimming, it is a low-impact exercise. Many people use it as a form of rehabilitation including the stars!
Celebrity Swimmer #3: Jennifer Aniston
Rising to fame for her role in the ‘90s sitcom Friends, Aniston is still active today in multiple ways. Appearing in many more shows and movies, it’s hard to watch anything and not recognize her instantly. She is also staying physically active!
Jennifer Anniston swims 20-40 minutes around 2-3 days a week. It’s even one of her favourite exercises. No wonder she still looks great today!
Celebrity Swimmer #4: Sean Connery
Sir Thomas Sean Connery is a prominent icon in the James Bond franchise. The Scotsman wasn’t always the actor that we all know today. Before travelling around the world as an international superspy, he was a lifeguard.
This is a job where you need to stay active, fit and be a great swimmer of course! Sir Connery stayed active by lifting weights and swimming. So it’s no surprise that casting directors found him to be perfect for the role of secret agent Bond, James Bond.
Celebrity Swimmer #5: Brad Pitt
When you hear the name Brad Pitt, many things might come to mind. Actor? Producer? Half of a celeb power couple? What about swimmer?
This is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the star. Back in high school, Pitt was a competitive swimmer. Who knew that he used to glide across the water before making his way onto our screens!
Celebrity Swimmer #6: David Duchovny
Best known for his work on X-Files, David Duchowny has made a name for himself as an actor. There is more to him than his work in the entertainment industry. You should look out for him in the water.
At Vancouver Public Park, you will find him swimming around almost every day. Duchovny’s swimming is more than just for fun though. He follows the same swim workout that Olympians do!
