Dizzee Rascal


British rapper Dizzee often gets pent-up anger so he now releases that energy by doing boxing regularly: “I’ve been spending my time doing Thai boxing in Kent – it’s great. I do it because I like beating people up.”

Gerard Butler

Scottish actor Gerard Butler needed to de-stress after working on ‘Olympus Has Fallen’, so he took off around the world:”I’ve been making ‘Olympus’ for a long time, so I thought it was time for a break. I decided to travel. In the past six or seven weeks, I have been to Scotland, England, Italy, Switzerland, Thailand, Mexico, Columbia – all for different reasons. But, mostly for travelling, just going to places and seeing friends… But, the real highlight for me was in Thailand, becoming a monk. I was hiding out in temples a lot.”

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer enjoys taking long baths with luxurious oils: “I make a lot of time for baths. It’s the only thing I do to de-stress. I don’t drink or smoke. It’s all I have. So I put a lot into it. I like milk baths and powders and oils. And I love Jo Malone bath oils – the grapefruit, the lime, and basil, and the rose.”

Nicolas Cage

Nicolas enjoys some karaoke to unwind, especially if he gets to scream the lyrics: “It’s my way to de-stress. My favourites are classics like My Way and I do it Sex Pistorls-style. I like to scream the songs out instead of singing. When we were filming National Treasure I lost my voice after a night out so I had to dub the scenes later.”

Tom Cruise

Tom likes to take to the air to forget his worries and often hops in his own plane to get away from it all: “I’m not all work, work, work. I do duck out and fly my plane to de-stress. “Everyone says, ‘Where is Tom?’ as I scream past, shattering the windows.”
