The actress maintains her health and fitness by practicing an active lifestyle. Being an actress, she naturally has an on-the-go lifestyle. Between shoots, she also exercises whenever possible. She loves it when she feels invigorated with an exercise even just for 10 minutes. In an interview, she was asked how she practices beauty inside and out. As a response, she said:
“I try to work out twice a week, which can veer towards nothing at all for weeks, and then a burst of activity. When in cities that are conducive to walking, I like to walk everywhere…and eat frequently, for ongoing energy.” She also shared how she loves walking, as basic as it is. She said: “I’ve found walking seems to help thoughts develop in a good way, and lifts spirits. Find out what suits your body and embrace it.” For this reason, the actress, despite nearing her 50s, maintains a slender and a toned figure.
