Although Elizabeth didn't reply to the flattering comments, she has previously opened up about how she maintains her slim figure, admitting that she has had to watch what she eats more as she gets older. "I have to be careful because I am 50," she said during an appearance on US talk show The View in 2015. "I always watch what I eat, but I eat plenty of food. I don't do all that green juice, I don't do any of that… powders, I don't really take vitamins. I try not to eat too much for dinner."

The actress practices yoga and pilates to stay in shape

Eating less at night is one of the main things Elizabeth credits to avoiding weight gain, telling E! News: "I think that's one of the best diet tips you can have: eat your food earlier on in the day, so you've got more time to digest it and your body can rest in the sleep period. I used to snack late at night because I was a little bit hungry before I went to bed… [but] I stopped doing that now."

As for her exercise routine, it's refreshingly easy to follow and there's no need for going to a gym. Elizabeth says she likes to take a fast-paced half-hour walk each day, as well as some core work, or Pilates and yoga for toning. "I think it's important to stay sort of firm and to do a reasonable amount of walking and exercise," she told E! News. "I don't go to the gym, but I'm quite active… I don't really sit still [and] I don't lie around on the sofa."
