Not bad is he? For a man of seventy-six Patrick Stewart actor looks in better nick than the rest of us whilst chilling on a beach, cocktail in hand.

The Star Trek actor has revealed the secret to his firm physique isn't a P30,000-an-hour personal trainer or a gym with a 14-year waiting list, but something very achievable.

"Push-ups. It's that simple," he said a few years ago after his Golden Globes nomination.

But being the cool customer he is, he pointed out that his body wasn't on his mind at the time.

"It wasn't the abs I was thinking of showing," he said. "The pink shorts, the pink beach shoes, and the pink cocktail I had in one hand–I was color-coordinated and that was what it was really about."

That is what it's really about.
