Elizabeth Hurley, 54, reveals secret to bikini-ready abs: 'I don't work out'

Elizabeth Hurley is well known for showcasing her bikini-ready body on social media. The 54-year-old actress and swimsuit designer has boggled the minds of fans throughout the summer by posting sexy snaps of her age-defying looks. Shockingly, her svelte figure isn’t the result of a personal trainer.

Recently, The Royals star revealed that her enviable body doesn't come from spending hours working out or utilizing a treadmill. In fact, Hurley says she doesn't even go to the gym.

"I don’t work out, per se, but I’m very active. I do a lot of exercise, but it’s really the gardening," Hurley told Extra. "Cutting down a hedge, using my chainsaw to cut down a tree, logging, all of that sort of stuff I do. So, I’m very active.”

The results are enough to make a person consider trading in their gym membership for gardening shears.

When she’s not in the garden or lounging poolside, Hurley is a breast cancer awareness advocate and has served as Estée Lauder Companies' Global Ambassador for the last 20 years.

On Tuesday, the star said she had the honor of lighting up the Empire State Building pink, as she does every October, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to draw attention to the cause.
