She’s looking toned in her striped bikini on the cover of Allure magazine’s July 2009 issue, but Fergie revealed getting back her beach-perfect body after filming Rob Marshall’s “Nine” wasn’t very easy.Last year, the Black Eyed Peas singer was asked to gain weight by the director in order to play the part of Saraghina, a prostitute in “Nine,” which is due to hit movie theaters in November. And Fergie happily indulged every craving, alongside co-star Penelope Cruz, eventually gaining 17 pounds for the role on her petite frame.The two ordered “everything fried and full of fat and salty” while filming in London. “We were eating our brains out,” Fergie told Allure.But taking the weight off wasn’t something a woman known for her washboard abs found easy to do.“It was a very gradual thing getting back into it and finally letting a trainer train me,” she said. “I didn’t want to be told what to do, and I wasn’t mentally ready to crack the whip.”Fergie revealed she eventually turned to husband Josh Duhamel’s trainer and she now stays in shape by jumping rope, taking outdoor hikes and weight lifting. And of course, mid-section exercises.“If I don’t do sit-ups, my stomach sticks out,” she told the mag. “Legs are easy for me. That’s my lucky spot.”
