Every year, young and fresh new talent rises in Hollywood. Many of these talented young people will go on to win awards- Oscars, Grammys, Emmys- you name it. A lot of them will garner international fame and endorsements, all of which come with a lot of attention and pressure. Being in the public eye is not easy and can be stressful. Being active, however, has been shown in many studies to help with stress management. Not to mention, that many young children and teens will look up to these rising stars as role models, so picking active, healthy idols is important!
In previous years, we published the list of the 100 Fittest Rising Stars in Hollywood. This year, the HFR institute whittled down the list from 100, to 50, and finally to 10. We have combined founder Samir Becic‘s expertise as a health and fitness expert of over 20 years, interviews, and social media posts to narrow down these fit young celebs.
Samir Becic says of these young Hollywood celebrities “Rising stars are the future superstars. And with that, they become mega-influencers in the world. I’m asking each of you on this list- Let’s keep motivating our children to be the healthiest and fittest they can be so we can fight childhood obesity and diabetes type 2, while also creating successful leaders of tomorrow.”
This year we are crowning the Top 10 Fittest Rising Stars in Hollywood 2017- here are the active young stars that made our list:
Henry Cavill puts the super in superman. This strikingly handsome and buff actor worked day in and day out to bulk up for his role in Man of Steel. Preparing for his role of superman included plenty of weight training and CrossFit exercises.

“TO ME IT’S NOT ONE THING. TO BE REALLY IN SHAPE, IT’S DYNAMIC, IT’S GOT TO BE A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS, ALWAYS SWITCHING IT UP. SO A GOOD DAY FOR ME WOULD BE HIT THE GYM, DO SOME SORT OF CROSS TRAINING IN THE GYM AND THEN GO SURFING AND THEN TAKE A JIU-JITSU CLASS AT HIGHT OR GO SWIMMING…”
This Vampire Diaries star has a bombshell figure with a fierce attitude to match.

“I’VE ALWAYS LEAD A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, I’VE BEEN A VEGETARIAN ALL MY LIFE, AND I GREW UP PLAYING A LOT OF SPORTS, BUT I WASN’T REALLY GROWING UP. SO I HEADED TO THE GYM AND IT’S GREAT HOW THE RESULTS QUICKLY BECAME APPARENT.”
Michael B Jordan
