Leslie Mann: I’m inconsistent with exercise

Actress Leslie Mann has revealed her husband Judd Apatow once dyed his hair by mistake after using one of her beauty products without checking the label.

Actress Leslie Mann would “much rather sleep” than exercise, which is why her fitness regimen is completely inconsistent.

The 43-year-old Knocked Up star has managed to maintain a slim frame over the years, but Leslie confesses her body shape is not down to regular workouts.

“Oh, I’m so inconsistent about exercise,” she admitted in the November (15) issue of Redbook magazine. “I have periods where I’ll work out four times a week, then I’ll quit for months. I probably lean more toward those down periods … You read about actors who wake up at 4 a.m. so they can get in a workout — that’s definitely not me. I’d much rather sleep!”

Although she has very little interest in hitting the treadmill or the cross-trainer, Leslie does like to keep abreast of the latest beauty products.

She regularly changes cosmetics brands and admits sometimes her desire to try new things adversely impacts husband Judd.

One time he dyed his hair while using a new beauty product Leslie had brought home.

“He knows my whole routine by now,” she said. “Though once, he began using my purple-tinted shampoo, not knowing it’s meant for blondes, and it turned his hair this weird colour. He didn’t understand what was happening.”

Leslie also tells Redbook she likes to make sure the couple's daughters Iris, 13, and Maude, 16, are self-confident teens, adding, "[I tell them] that they’re beautiful the way they are. It’s hard with girls today because of social media — everybody looks so flawless on Instagram, it messes with girls’ heads. It’s nice when people look real but that doesn’t happen often.”

Maude and Iris seem keen to follow their parents into showbiz; the girls have appeared in several of mum and dad’s films, including This Is 40, Knocked Up and Funny People.
