It's a great way to turn your brain off in a world where we're all running around and on our phones all the time. [Yoga and meditation are] an awesome place to start."

Cate Blanchett opted for a plunging, custom Giorgio Armani Privé gown, and Pomellato jewelry. The Aussie actress has admitted that working out isn't really her thing. "I got fit, I mean properly fit, for the first time. My job is very physical," Blanchett told The Coveteur about how she got into the best shape of her life at 48 with the help of Chris ​​Hemsworth's personal trainer, Luke Zocchi, for the third Thor film. "It was hideous. It was horrendous. It was a hardcore cardio and weights circuit, but it only lasted 20 minutes because he had to fit it in between scenes," she said. "But it was great, I actually wanted to get up at six in the morning and work with him for 20 minutes before the kids woke up, if you can believe it. It sounds bizarre. I'm not doing that at the moment, but I really do want to get back to it."

Naomi Watts flaunted her strong arms in a sleek Fendi Couture column dress. Watts told Women's Health in 2020 that she regularly depends on an anti-inflammation diet to help her reset, which involves no wheat, sugar, dairy, and alcohol. She works out three to five times per week and her favorite workout is Taryn Toomey's The Class, a combination of calisthenics and plyometrics guided by self-help messages."I've always liked to be physical," she says. "I'm an active person. But I also love the outlet that Taryn creates. It's a 'get your freak on' kind of thing. It doesn't feel like a traditional workout. You get to move your body, but you also get to shift your mind in a way that's really cathartic."

Vanessa Hudgens

"After doing a juice cleanse, I'm motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally." She also maintains that cleansing is meditative for her.

"My number one thing, considering my crazy, crazy schedule, is that I try to devote at least 15 minutes a day to getting some sort of physical activity in, whether it's riding a bike, taking a walk, even just walking around in my backyard for 15 minutes—just something to get some fresh air and the blood pumping."
