Celebrities are well known for having plenty of cash.
With money beeing no object, you would expect them to have the top personal trainers and the world’s best chefs to make them train each day and eat the most tasty healthy dishes, that will give them the perfect body.
If you judge their body mass index and fat percentage, the results show a different story. Body mass index or “BMI” compares the height and weight to measure a person’s body fat percentage and places them in four categories: under average weight – 18.5 or lower, normal weight of the average person is between – 18.5 and 24.9, for the overweight it is between 25 and 29.9, and the obese category is 30 and upwards. Let’s take a look at some celebrities below and compare their body mass index.
● Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie’s BMI is said to be around 18. Coming in at 18 shows she is underweight and could do with putting some pounds on.
Always being known as one of the most beautiful ladies in the world must have some added pressures to keep yourself thin but having six children running about is bound to keep you fit, but being the role model for many children worldwide, she needs to put on a little weight in our opinion.
● Arnold Schwarzenegger
For much of his life Arnold “I’ll be back” Schwarzenegger has been the poster celebrity person for health and fitness.
With Arnold’s BMI set at 30.8, this makes him into the obese category! We don’t think he should be signing up for celebrity fat club just yet, as the results are slightly misleading. You see, with a very large muscle mass, it makes the BMI incorrect.
The BMI scale has been around since the 1800’s so maybe someone needs to sit down and have a rethink.
Is there anything that we can find a flaw in with, Beyonce?
We tried with the BMI and failed. She has a body mass index of 22, which is exactly where anyone would want to be, which beggars the question, why does, Beyonce, look so curvy around other celebrities?
The other models and actresses must be well underweight.
- Serena Williams
Serena Williams is well known for her strong and tough physic. Her BMI stands at a great 22.
Perfectly located in the average section. Some have mentioned her “manly body” but Standing at 5 feet 9 inches, and weighing in at 150 pounds, Serena has a whole lot of muscle and almost zero body fat. Almost the perfect specimen in terms for BMI.
● Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise has always looked small and slim in all his blockbuster movies, but where does him body mass index stand at?
At a BMI of 26, Tom is considered in the overweight category. As he is almost reaching the mid-fifties, we can let him off for the extra added pounds over the years.
