Penelope Ann Miller keeps in top shape by living a healthy lifestyle. She exercises and eats clean, organic foods most of the time. Simply living healthily is also how she stays youthful. She doesn’t follow any strict diet plans but she does eat conscientiously, which means processed foods are rarely part of her dietary regimen. “Hopefully, you can maintain your looks. For me, I just try to be as healthy as possible, I try to eat well and exercise, I try not to get too stressed out and I try to get my rest, even though I have two young girls,” said the actress.
