Jessica Chastain: Secrets of an A-List Body
- This week: Jessica Chastain – How to get the enviable physique of the stars
Actress Jessica Chastain recently chose an outfit that squeezed her slim waist on the red carpet.
The 46-year-old actress maintains her slim physique with regular yoga and dance classes.
She’s said exercise inspires her: “It’s a reminder — especially when you’re holding a plank position, shaking and thinking, ‘I can’t do it!’ – that you can get through anything.’

WHAT TO TRY: The side shelf. A variation on the regular plank, this move targets the obliques that wrap around the sides of your waist like a corset.
Start in a plank position with your hands and arms straight and flat on the floor up to the elbow, and your body tight.
Slowly lift one hand off the floor, out to the side, and into the air, rotating your chest, body, and legs 90 degrees.
Hold for a count of five and return to the traditional plank, then repeat on the other side.
Repeat three times on each side.
