She starts her morning by running her "dogs through the garden" and gets down to the business of fitness after she's finished her breakfast and coffee.

"I do 15 on the elliptical, 15 spinning, then I do 15 run," she told Harper's Bazaar magazine.

"And then I do portions of the Body by Simone DVD for floor work. It's so freaking hard, it's unbelievable."

The fitness DVD is a favourite among the toned Tinseltown elite who swear by personal trainer Simone's powerful dance cardio sweat sessions.

When it comes to diet, Jennifer said she avoids sugar and regularly eats "a salad with protein" or a chicken burger and lettuce for lunch.

The newlywed also confessed that she is still disturbed by Hollywood's attitude to older women: "There are women who've hit 50 who are stunners, like shocking," she said.

"We just take better care of ourselves. I had somebody say to me, 'Women these days in their 40s look pretty good!' And this was a much older person. I mean, who says that?"

She continued: "For me, in my 30s I was just trying to figure it all out. Then when you hit 40, you're like, 'Oh, okay. I got this.'"

"I feel better in my 40s. Not only do you feel better in your body physically, but you're mentally better," she explained.
