There was a time when I would only hear my male clients talk about how they wanted fit, chiseled arms. Nowadays, almost all of my female clients are adamant about having strong, sculpted arms, and that's thanks, in part, to the über-fit actresses dominating the movie screens of the '90s and early 2000s.
The incredible arms of Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby, Halle Berry in Catwoman, Demi Moore in G.I. Jane, Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich, and Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, all inspired women to lose the sleeves and focus on making their arms as amazing as the rest of their bodies.
There are two main muscle groups in the arms: The biceps, which are located on the front of the upper arms; and the triceps, which are on the back of the upper arms. The main function of the biceps is to bend the elbow, while the triceps straighten the arm at the elbow.

There are three things most people are very opinionated about: religion, politics and who has the finest, fittest female body in film.
For those of you who read my blog last week, I presented a list of the fittest male physiques in movie history. Some agreed, some didn't. But my list of women must be handled with a bit more finesse.
First, what defines the "best" female film body?

It has everything a scary movie should have: a small-town citizenry possessed by outside forces, aliens on the prowl and realistic-looking old film footage to vouch for its authenticity. But is The Fourth Kind everything it claims to be?
In the new movie, which opened last weekend, Milla Jovovich plays a psychologist named Dr. Abigail Taylor who investigates a series of disappearances in Nome, Alaska. Marketed as a fact-based thriller, The Fourth Kind uses a documentary-reenactment approach to explore a series of unsolved disappearances in the Alaska town. One possible explanation? Alien abduction.
But just what is fact and what is fiction?

Milla Jovovich and her fiancé, director Paul Anderson, are getting ready to tie the knot this Saturday, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The couple, who are parents to daughter Ever Gabo, 20 months, have invited about 50 guests to a sunset ceremony at their Los Angeles-area home.
"It's going to be small," Jovovich recently told PEOPLE. "It's just going to be family and close friends. And it's at our home and it's going to be kind of Havana/Cuban, like very California-Spanish feeling. It's going to be nice."
As for the wedding attire? The bride, 33, told PEOPLE she's wearing a gown she designed herself and describes it as a "1960's mini-dress."

Having revealed her and film director Paul Anderson's wedding date of Aug. 22, Milla Jovovich has now owned up to one of her attractions to her fiancé: his Newcastle, England, background and that town's favorite dish: fried fish and French fries.
"I'm marrying a Geordie!" the former model, referring to the name applied to Newcastle locals, triumphantly told Britain's GMTV Friday. "I love Newcastle, we have so much fun there. I love going up to Lindisfarne and Lumley Castle – and having fish 'n' chips."
