Susan Sarandon has taken up a sport. The sixty seven year old former Soap star (A World Apart) wants to keep he figure slim, by stepping into the ring for some boxing practice. The star, who is the first of nine children, will be a first time grandmother sometime later this month as her own daughter, Eva Amurri Martino is set to give birth. The Lovely Bones actress explain to PEOPLE.com: ”Someone gave me lessons as a gift, then I continued, and I like it. I like the gym. It’s really fun with all the boxers, and it’s fun to hit – it’s a workout!”
She also give hints to her youthful appearance. She said:
”If you want to age gracefully, you don’t smoke cigarettes and probably laugh a lot, and get the normal amount of exercise, and eat well and stay out of the sun would be the main things.
”As is having an amazing makeup and hair team, that’s really the secret.”
”It helps to live in New York because I walk everywhere. I ride my bike down the West Side Highway, and I get 30 minutes on the treadmill.”
She also said, I want to be a ”fun” grandmother. She said:
”I do some crafty things, but I have not yet learned to knit. But I’ll do whatever she needs me to do.
”Mostly I see myself as a memory-maker for my kids and my grandkids. It’s just for me to take them places and do things with them – [Eva] can hold down the fort, and I’ll do all the fun stuff.”
