What does it take to get movie star super-buff? Like Kate Beckinsale, Colin Farrel, Jessica Biel level buff?

Ok, so I just went to see Totall Recall this weekend. In the opening scene the mega-shredded arms-bigger-than-my-head Colin Farrel and the equally buff CG-level-perfect Kate Beckinsale wake up in bed together and I was momentarily overwhelmed by the '..... hot DAMN!' of it all.
When I recovered, I got to thinking. I'm someone who goes to the gym a lot (at least an hour and a half 4 or 5 times a week), I also bike everywhere and do lots of walking. Husband is vegan so we eat pretty healthy. Needless to say, I still look like an average human being - my body is not bad but certainly not WHOAH HOW DID YOU DO THAT Pinterest fit-spiration beautiful.
So what I'm wondering is, how do celebrities achieve it? How many hours a day do they spend in the gym/training? It seems to me like you'd have to spend all your time doing it (?) Is it also following particular eating habits? I just don't understand how it's physically possible (certainly isn't for me....sniff).
Do any of you possess a super-buff body? How do you achieve it?
