6 Celebs Reveal How They Relax

Posted by PZ on January 4th, 2012

After a long day on set or in the studio, and not forgetting those promotional appearances, premieres and red carpet events, it must be hard to switch off, yet these 6 stars have all come up with good ways to relax whenever they find the time to take it easy. Some head to the spa, others soak in the tub, while some head online and shop for designer goodies while they drink some wine. Others prefer to get naked and have their hair washed!

Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields says there is nothing quite as nice as a good bath when it comes to relaxing: “There is nothing really better than a great bath and taking the time. Now that I’ve gotten older I sort of feel the luxury and the peacefulness just to idle down.”

Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler says that on a day off, you will most likely find her at the spa, naked:  “The most unlikely place you will find me is naked at the Beverly Hot Springs. It is a traditional Korean bathhouse where you soak in natural hot springs and get scrubbed, massages and cleansed to within an inch of your life. They even wash your hair. You feel clean and happy afterwards.”

Halle Berry

Halle Berry unwinds by cleaning because she finds it quite therapeutic: “I find cleaning very cathartic. If my house is in a mess, my brain is in a mess. Whenever I’m having a bad day or have a big decision to make, I’ll clean my home and that helps me work through any problem. I’m a real neat nick and have been that way since I was a kid. I drive my family crazy. I’m always picking up after them and they hate it. But I like to have everything in place.”

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow likes to drink wine and shop online whenever she has a night to herself: “On some nights, once the kids are asleep and I’m in for the evening, one of my favourite pastimes it to sit down with my laptop and a nice glass of wine. I read the news and do the occasional guilty shop on Net-a- Porter or Luisa Via Roma.”

Clint Eastwood

Legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood likes to fly helicopters as a hobby because it is nice and quiet:  “I fly helicopters, so I just go off. You can be very quiet. You’re just a number in the skies.”

Christina Ricci

When she is feeling stressed, Christina Ricci reads a book and cuddles up to her dog:  “If I feel stressed, I take a personal day, which basically entails me being on my couch with a book and my puppy! I don’t leave the house. And I like to visit my friends, and just hang out with my family.”
