Marisa Tomei's Stay Fit Secret: 'Feel Naughty, Drink Wine and Have Sex!'

Posted on

As hard as it is to believe that her Oscar-winning turn in My Cousin Vinny was 18 years ago, Marisa Tomei has moved on to playing sexy moms in films like Cyrus. But her fit and youthful appearance belies her being a 45-year-old. So how does the SHAPE cover girl stay bikini-ready? In addition to being raised on a Mediterranean diet heavy on protein, Tomei attributes her rock hard Wrestler body to belly dancing, which exercises both her mind and body. “There’s such a sense of freedom,” she says in the August issue. Although she jump starts her day with hot lemon water and a boiled egg, Marisa says, “I don’t want you to think I’m only about being all healthy-crunchy.” The star promises that she lives a life full of laughter and fun, which balances out the healthier parts of her lifestyle. “It’s about feeling pleasure too. I love to play, play, play! To go out dancing and be boisterous. It’s fun to be a night owl, or feel naughty, drink wine, and have sex! Now that’s the best kind of play there is!” To check out more of Marisa’s interview, pick up the August issue of SHAPE starting July 19 or check shape.comJessie Goldberg
