7 Ways Sandra Bullock Makes 58 Look Like 38

Here’s how she’s just getting better with age.

Sandra Bullock is 58 and in the best physical shape of her life. The Lost City star is known for her dedication to health and fitness, with colleagues noting she often comes to set in her workout gear, having already exercised before a long day of filming. So how exactly does she make 58 look like 38? Here's what Bullock does to stay in fantastic shape and look 20 years younger.


Cardio and Strength Training

Bullock works out with trainer Simone de la Rue, founder of the Body By Simone dance-based fitness studios. "There's always cardio like dance, jump roping or rebounding," de la Rue says. "Then we alternate between 10-minute intervals of high-intensity cardio and strength training moves that focus on different body parts."


Pilates and Kickboxing


Bullock takes her fitness seriously, working out six days a week. And if that's not intense enough, Bullock says she would do more if she could. "I do Pilates, kickboxing, weight training," she says. "When I'm in Austin, I run or ride a bike. If I can work out every day, I will." 


Healthy Diet With a Cheat Day


Bullock sticks to a healthy diet but allows balance for indulgences. "Like last night I had brown rice and black beans and some steamed vegetables," she says. Bullock allows one cheat day per weekend. "I start Friday night and I end Saturday night. But it is not so regimented. I'll make lists of what I want to eat this week or next week." 


Regular Facials

Bullock is not a fan of cosmetic surgery, but she does take care of her skin. "I wanted to give [Bullock] something that would transform her skin without the need to undergo lasers, so I loaded up her bespoke facial with something that would give her long-lasting results," says her facialist Georgia Louise. She also uses hemorrhoid cream on her face. "My favorite beauty-pageant secret: I didn't realize that putting hemorrhoid ointment on your face is acceptable in the beauty business. But apparently [it] does help lines around the eyes," she says.


Athletic Lifestyle

Bullock doesn't feel comfortable if she doesn't get enough movement in. "I've been an athlete since childhood. So, sometimes, I rely on my body a lot more than it's able to execute," she says. "But, I love it! I'm always training or doing some form of exercise four or five times a week; I just feel restless if I don't."


Eating Right To Feel Good


Bullock works out not just for her health but to feel good about her appearance. "As for diet, I love food, but I eat well; the best thing to do is to have fun and be active all the time," she says. "I know that I feel better when I'm that way, and that in itself allows me to want to dress up."


Dancing By Herself

Bullock loves to let loose when she's alone, to blow off some steam and destress. "At the end of every week I throw on a pair of jeans, take my hair down, and find someplace to just dance, even if it's by myself," she says. "That's my therapy."
