Many popular faces of Russian television have been on the screens since the end of the last century or the beginning of the 2000s. And now they are on the air and in good physical shape: they are on a diet, visit fashionable cosmetologists, control its appearance, which is a working tool for television presenters. When their careers began, no such opportunity existed with their modest salaries. But there was youth! We consider photos of TV stars at the beginning of their careers (25 or 30 years ago) and now.
Evgeny Petrosyan (77 years old)
The People’s Artist has a picture of the first appearance on the professional stage – it was in 1962. For two years he acted as an entertainer under the pseudonym Evgeny Petrov. Having gained authority with the audience, Evgeny Petrosyants began to perform under the name Petrosyan. He was an intelligent and handsome man and was married 4 times in his youth. Now Petrosyan has his fifth marriage: his 33-year-old wife Tatiana works for the master of humor as a concert director. The couple is raising a 3-year-old son, Vagan, who is very similar to the famous father. The young wife is also responsible for the artist’s wardrobe – there are a lot of fashionable things. And she controls his lifestyle: the artist keeps himself in shape: proper nutrition, regular medical examinations, moderate physical activity. There is a lot of work: Petrosyan has a Variety Miniature Theater, with which they produce humorous programs for television. “Smehopanorama”, “Crooked Mirror”, “Petrosyan-show” – Evgeny Vaganovich’s TV projects have been released for many years on the Rossiya channel.

Ekaterina Strizhenova (55 years old) and Larisa Guzeeva (63 years old)
In the spring 2023 photo behind the scenes of Ostankino, Channel One TV presenters – Ekaterina Strizhenova and Larisa Guzeeva. They started with the movies. Ekaterina Strizhenova has been studying in the Kalinka dance ensemble since childhood, in her classroom the director of the film “Leader” noticed her (he selected the heroines of the film) and invited her to act in films. So, at the age of 15, Ekaterina Tokman (maiden name) made her film debut – she played the main female role of ninth-grader Tanya Kornilova in the family melodrama “Leader” directed by Boris Durov. On the set of the film in Sochi, Strizhenova met her future husband, Alexander Strizhenov. The marriage is the only one on our television that has maintained the only marriage: Catherine and Alexander have two daughters and a grandson. Strizhenova’s workload is now greater than 40 years ago, when she began her work experience: Ekaterina acts, hosts Good Morning and the socio-political program It’s Time (as part of the Time Will Show project). Over the years, Strizhenova does not change, in excellent shape – the reason for this is genetics, maintaining a constant weight, proper nutrition and an excellent beautician. Ekaterina strictly controls her diet and supports her face every six months with “beauty injections” – for the sake of elastic skin, a fresh complexion and smoothing out wrinkles.

Larisa Guzeeva herself stated a fact from her youth: “In general, I was terribly arrogant. I thought that only Peter O’Toole, Laurence Olivier or, at worst, Volodya Vysotsky were worthy of me, because I was so pretty. When a girl from the Orenburg region entered the Leningrad State Institute of Theater, Music and Cinematography, she worked as a model. Right after graduating, she started acting and the movie “Cruel Romance” made her a star. The beauty did not bring happiness in her personal life: the first husband drank and spread his arms: “I just sat and hit myself with weights …” Larisa said that she herself began to drink from such a life, but in 1991 she left her husband: “I went, I was cured and I said: ‘I’m not going to live like this anymore.’ Guzeeva found happiness in her personal life in 1999 in her third marriage to restaurateur Igor Bukharov; the couple saved the marriage, despite the rumors. Now Larisa Guzeeva is not ashamed of wrinkles: “He who does not live does not grow old. I thank fate for everything. She did not “reshape” her face with a plastic surgeon: she visits a cosmetologist, tries modern hardware cosmetology procedures. Larisa Andreevna is constantly struggling with being overweight: she regularly undergoes wellness and cleansing programs in spa centers and clinics. On Channel One, Larisa Guzeeva hosts “Podcast. Laboratory. Lyrics” and “Voice. 60+ “. Another of her projects is Let’s Get Married! Temporarily out.

He became a TV presenter in 2001 – he hosted the Big Wash show, and since 2005 Andrei has gained wide popularity thanks to the Let They Talk talk show. In 2017, Malakhov left Channel One for Rossiya: now he not only hosts, but also produces projects: Songs from the Heart, Hello, Andrei!, Live. At the beginning of his career, Andrei often found himself in the company of famous and not very blond ones: he was attributed an affair with Elena Korikova. Then he even released a book in the genre of black comedy – the novel “My Favorite Blondes.” But after Malakhov met his future wife, other novels remained in the past. Andrey has been married for 12 years to the co-owner of a large media holding company Natalya Shkuleva, his son Alexander is 5 years old. Two years ago, Malakhov changed morning trips (Monday to Friday) to the gym before work in order to communicate with his son and gain weight. Malakhov always tended to be overweight, therefore, in order to keep fit, the TV presenter had to sweat in the gym 3 times a week throughout his creative career on television. But the only opportunity for the father to spend time with the child on weekdays – a few hours in the morning before work. Malakhov’s overweight immediately became the subject of criticism and speculation. Andrei went on a diet, began to go to the pool with his son and lost weight, again in excellent shape. He also takes into account that the screen adds 6 kg.
