Rose Byrne has confessed she finds it hard to exercise while juggling her two young children.

The actress, who shares sons Rocco, five, and three-year-old Rafa, with partner Bobby Cannavale, opened up on her secrets to staying fit and healthy in a new interview with Shape magazine, and revealed she prioritises working out, despite the challenges.

“Exercise is a juggling thing with small kids. I’ve been taking a lot of long walks and hikes. All that cliche stuff. And doing yoga, which I started when I was 15 and rediscovered during quarantine. I try to do it every day for 15 to 20 minutes. It’s a great way to quiet the mind,” the Bridesmaids explained, noting that she’s also had personal trainers over the years.

“I really enjoy doing strength training when I have the time to work with someone. When I’m back home in Australia, I love to swim. I do notice that now as I’m getting older, it takes a little longer to get my fitness back. But exercise does help you feel better. It’s a great stress reliever,” Rose, 41, shared.

She also urged the importance of taking care of her skin, and is a devout user of high-factor sunscreen after growing up in Australia.

“‘Stay out of the sun’ was drummed into us from an early age. They told us, ‘Wear sunscreen, wear a hat, wear sunglasses. Otherwise, you’re going to get skin cancer. You have to protect yourself. There’s a hole in the ozone layer. The sun’s rays are really harsh, even if it’s overcast.’ That was absolutely drilled into me, as it is any Aussie kid, and I do it,” Rose said, before adding that she’s getting more into clean beauty.

“And I’m embracing the changes as they come along, because in my 40s, I definitely see things changing,” she confessed.
