Sexy Hollywood Stars Over 40 (PHOTOS)
From Jennifer Lopez to Elizabeth Hurley -- how the stars did it, and how you can too.
For Gwen Stefani, who’s always turned heads with her rock hard abs and toned figure, it’s all about putting in the effort.
“There’s no secret: you just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself!” the 43-year-old told Harper’s Bazaar last year.
Having kids paints a completely different picture when the stars want to work out, but there’s always room for both.
“I like to cook. As a mum, you end up cooking at least three or four times a week,” the 44-year-old said. “I pretty much always have fish and vegetables or roast chicken. The boys like protein.
Attitude is also a big booster.
According to Jennifer Garner’s trainer Valerie Waters, the 40-year-old actress worked out during and after her pregnancy. (Garner gave birth to her third child nearly one year ago).
“She’s strong and can kick it into gear -- no question, bring it on!” Waters told PEOPLE last summer.
