Actress Sayuri Yoshinaga, 67, revealed one of her secrets for staying in shape -- she performs 30 press-ups every evening.
Yoshinaga, who recently resumed filming her latest movie "Kita no Kanariatachi" in Hokkaido, attended a press conference this week to discuss the role. She revealed that she is called upon to perform some physical scenes in the movie, such as crawling up a 20-meter chimney, Sports Nipppon reported. To keep in condition for the role, she told reporters she was performing 30 press-ups every evening in her hotel room.
Another scene called for her to run down a rocky slope to a beach. "I'm short-sighted, so I couldn't really see what I was walking on," Yoshinaga said. "That was probably for the best, as it meant I wasn't scared."
She said she doesn't know how many more movies she has left in her. "I'm just enjoying making one screen memory at a time."
"Kita no Kanaritachi" is scheduled for release on Nov 3.© Japan Today
