They may be known for their super-svelte figures, but actresses Jessica Alba, Emily Blunt and Scarlett Johansson were happy pile on the pounds for a hilarious new spoof video, poking fun at American diet commercials, and celebrity diet trends.
The A-list actresses joined a host of other beautiful famous faces – including newly single Jessica Biel, Heidi Klum, January Jones, Amanda Seyfriedand Marissa Miller – to promote the ‘Hottie Body Jim-Miracle diet’ in the skit, filmed for Jimmy Kimmel’s US chat show.
During the fake commercial, Kimmel claims to remove up to 80 per cent of each meal’s calorie’s – by eating most of the food himself, before it is delivered to the client.

Donning a fat suit for a before and after photo, Scarlett Johansson claims to have ‘hired a ninja to slap the food out of my hand before I could eat it,’ as part of the fake diet, which helped her lose ’63 pounds,' while Emily Blunt claimed she had 'swallowed a tape worm' in an effort to stay thin before the diet.
Amanda Seyfried is on hand to demonstrate how the day the diet works in the five-minute video, and Victoria’s Secret model Marissa Miller shows off the effect, by posing with (identical!) before and after shots of herself.
Actor Neil Patrick Harris is even roped in to explain the ‘science bit’ of the special plan, sending up methods used in real American diet commercials.
‘Fattening foods are subjected to powerful slimming forces which strip away 80 per cent of the carbohydrates, proteins and fats and divert them directly into Jimmy's stomach, where they are digested,’ he explains.
'The result is a total de-fatisation by 80 per cent!'
