Women in TV and film are under so much pressure to keep a figure that is up to Hollywood’s impossibly thin or perfectly curvy standards, which is what makes the Instagram account of “Supergirl” executive producer Ali Adler so awesome. Adler constantly posts photos of the show’s star, Melissa Benoist, nom-nom’ing down on donuts. Not as “guilty pleasures” or just holding them for photo’s sake, she happily devours frosted, sprinkled and glazed treats on a daily basis.
How can Benoist and co-star Chyler Leigh, who is also featured treating herself to donuts on a regular basis, stay looking so beautifully toned? While genetics may play into the equation, check out this preview fight scene from the show’s Season 1 finale. These women literally kick butt 12 to 14 hours a day, six days a week. They more than earn their daily donut.
There’s only one more day until the finale of “Supergirl” airs, and while viewers worry as to why CBS has not renewed the the hit show, fear not Kara Zor-El fans.
Keep calm and donut on.
“Supergirl” is coming back. How do we know? Fellow EPs Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kresiberg have already discussed casting decisions for Season 2 with Zap2it, and because the network doesn’t normally announce renewal decisions until a series has wrapped up.
In the meantime, check out the best of Adler’s Instagram donut party account.
Just when you though you couldn’t love ‘Supergirl’ more than you already do …
The work hard, play hard ethic rules on the ‘Supergirl’ set.
Don’t leave out Jenna Dewan-Tatum and guest star Britt Morgan.
This has to be one the coolest female casts in TV history.
Don’t forget Italia Ricci. Silver Banshee fueled up!
Take note: this isn’t just food porn.
Adler uses this female empowered quote from reality TV star Kim Kardashian to explain why she posts so many photos of her cast eating sweet treats.

Don't discount the messenger. This is a gorgeous powerful message: "I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world." @kimkardashian #supergirl @jennaldewan @houseofvenskus #glennmorshower #eatadonut
While the notoriously private Flockhart isn’t featured on Adler’s Instagram, there’s little doubt that she has also has sweet tooth. The writers like to intertwine their “Supergirl” characters with the actors’ real life personalities, and Cat Grant has this reaction to someone taking one of her cupcakes.
