‘I don’t exercise:’ Salma Hayek spills her secret to staying in shape

The star says she has no time for workouts between her work and family commitments

While many celebrities continue to boast about their new diets or sleek workouts, one star is being open and honest about not working out at all.

Actress Salma Hayek, 48, has said her bizarre secret to maintaining her shape is by not exercising, but by holding her body “in a way that activates muscles all day long.”

The star says she has no time for workouts between her work and family commitments.

"Some people have the discipline to exercise in the morning, and I didn't develop that," People magazine quoted Hayek as saying.

"I don't have time to exercise. I am working. I've had some 20-hour days," she said, adding: “I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long. So even when you brush your teeth, you're working the muscles.

“She taught me to tone them without clenching them. You relax them and focus on the parts that need to be used, but never with tension.”
