The 46-year-old actress stays in shape by following an active lifestyle. But, of all the exercises she has tried, it’s yoga that she ended up incorporating into her routine for good. “I’ve done yoga three or four times a week for about nine years – Ashtanga and Iyengar – and I was never interested in it for the aerobic aspect,” said the actress. “But now I’m more appreciative of that. Mostly I’ve done it to help with stress – if you carry tension in your body, yoga stretches out your muscles and takes it out. Plus, you can put your legs behind your head.”
