Speaking to Harpers Bazaar Australia, the 43-year-old opened up about her love of Pilates and preference for a plant-based diet.

"It's totally changed my body, she said of the workout. "I'm always calculating my activity. If I haven't been moving a lot, I can't eat a lot. Or maybe it's a cheat day. But I'm honest with myself."

She also stays away from alcohol, tellingRed Magazine back in 2017 that she focuses each meal around protein-packed vegetables, dark leafy greens and fruit: "I have juices and kale and green salads every day. When I'm eating healthily, getting enough sleep and not drinking alcohol, that's when I look my best. That's when I'm happiest, and I think it shows."

Shes also big on grazing and limits her portion size, eating six small meals per day. But (because human) she does indulge on occasion within reason. If I fancy a burger, rather than deprive myself Ill have a quarter of one, she admitted.

As well as Pilates, the actress swears by power yoga and does two 90-minute classes weekly. Spin is another personal fave (she goes up to four times per week) and sometimes, shell even hit the court for a spot of cardio.

My mum recently got me to play tennis, which I wasnt good at but really enjoyed, she said. If you do exercise you enjoy, youre keeping yourself fit without even realising it.
