It must be real nice to stuff your face and not worry about whether or not the sandwich you ate is going to reappear on your thighs ... or gut. That's not a luxury we can claim to know, but more celebs than you'd think do just that. Granted, not everyone overindulges all the time, but man, it must be awesome to be one of these celebrities who doesn't need to have a personal relationship with the gym. Or really to be any person who doesn't need a personal relationship with the gym.

While some of these stars might find their way to a yoga mat or dumbbell sooner or later, we bet most will keep skirting that whole sweat-your-a** off thing for as long as possible. If you're curious, here are a few entertainers who have banging bods but claim they don't spend time inside a gym.

    Just because people know you have worked out in the past doesn't mean you can't take a break ... even if 365 days happens to go by. Folks are still shocked that Gwen Stefani said no to the gym for an entire year and still managed to look amazing. Hmm, maybe this mama of three is onto something. #NoDoubt

    "I don't work out. I hate it. I don't mean to sound super lazy." Tell us how you really feel, Nicki! The "Anaconda" rapper is not afraid to admit she hates the gym. In fact, Nicki Minaj once told Marie Claire that working out made her lose her boobs. "When I feel I need to lose weight, I just change what I eat. I cut out carbs and sugar," Minaj adds. Hmm, that doesn't seem too horrible.

  • Pamela Anderson

    Interested in a flat tummy and a bikini-ready bod? You might just be able to achieve your goals without any crazy exercises. Believe it or not, Pamela Anderson (yes, the uber popular goddess who inspired us to evoke our inner vixen) admits she's not a gym rat and doesn't do the whole trainer and sweat-inside-a-facility thing. "I'm very active, but I don't go to the gym or anything like that. Exercise is good for you, and it's good for stress relief and body shaping, but to lose weight, it's 80 percent food," Anderson once told Harper's Bazaar

  • Kristen Stewart

    Some people really ARE naturally thin. In an interview with Vogue Italia a few years back, actress Kristen Stewart revealed she and the gym don't have a relationship ... like, at all. "I am naturally slim. It runs in the family, so I don't have to do particular sports or follow diets." Kristen does, however, admit that she does "exercise" on set from time to time. You know, when a scene calls for her to do something action-y.

    Whether you enjoyed her kicking ass as Elizabeth Swann in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies or thought she made a pretty awesome Guinevere in King Arthur, Keira Knightley has shown us how athletic she can be. And what's even more awesome about the new mom is that she hates working out just like the rest of us. Keira admits to the UK Express, "The most exercise I get is turning on the TV. The very thought of a diet makes me want chips and ice cream, and I just hate going to the gym." Yaaas, girl. Yas.

  • Salma Hayek

    Wait, wait, wait. You mean to tell us that Selma Hayek doesn't go to the gym ... and somehow found a way to maintain that goddess bod? Selma once told People, "I don't have time to exercise. I am working. I've had some 20-hour days." In case you're wondering, Selma attributes her physique to the art of "restorative yoga." "I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long," Hayek revealed to People. Soooo, does this mean if we suck in our gut it will go away?

  • Emma Stone

    "Keeping weight on is a struggle for me -- especially when I'm under stress, and especially as I've gotten older." Skinny gals have their struggles, too, and Emma Stone was unashamed to admit to Seventeen she has a hard time maintaining weight. Admitting she doesn't really work out, Emma Stone also revealed she has a sugar problem as she just can't say no to junk food. (We feel ya!)

  • Teyana Taylor


    Show of hands, can anyone else indulge in pizza and other junk food and not have to worry about going to the gym? No? Okay, glad we aren't alone! New mom Teyana Taylor showed off the SICKEST post-baby body we've ever seen in Kanye West's music video "Fade." And yet, Taylor says she doesn't work out at the gym or diet. (Yeah, this gal loves her donuts and snack food.) Granted, T does spend a lot of time in the dance studio ... and now she has us looking at our music playlist thinking about how we can join in to get those abs.

  • Coco Austin

    It's so hard to look at post-baby pics of Coco Austin and not assume Mom hit the weights, or squatted something real heavy. But as Coco tells E! News, it's been two years since she's been to the gym -- which is pretty darn amazing considering how snatched her bod is. Guess there are some #postbabybodgoals that don't require a major sweat fest. Hooray!
