The Healthy Habits Kevin Costner Follows Make 67 Look So Darn Good

The star stays active and moving.

Actor, film director, and producer Kevin Costner is an all-time favorite celeb. From his many starring roles over the years, including Eliot Ness in The Untouchables (1987), Tom Farrell from No Way Out (1987), "Crash" Davis in Bull Durham (1988), Lt. John J Dunbar in Dances with Wolves (1990)—just to name a small handful—to four amazing seasons of the ever-so-popular Peacock show, Yellowstone, it's clear Costner has his act together on and off the screen. In the Taylor Sheridan series, Kevin Costner portrays John Dutton, the cool-as-can-be patriarch, protecting his precious Yellowstone Dutton Ranch in Montana all while keeping family matters in check. He does this while looking so fit and good at 67—whether Dutton is riding a horse, in a helicopter, driving a pick-up truck, or rocking a cowboy hat.

There's so much more to Kevin Costner than bringing so many great characters to us on screen, and we've learned the star's life secrets and healthy habits he follows at 67. Perhaps his priorities, positive choices, and activities are what help him stay young and at the top of his game. After all, studies have shown that individuals who endure less stress are in better moods and even have lower heart rates when participating in things they truly love. Indulging in artistic activities for as little as 8 ½ hours each month positively impacts mental well-being, too. Simply put, it's important to live life doing what you're passionate about, and it seems like Kevin Costner is doing exactly that.

Costner revealed that he's lucked out with many things in his life, one of them being his ability to remain healthy. He said (via GQ), "How do I stay healthy at this age? I have little children, and I work hard at playing harder than them," adding, "I love a little horseback riding, followed by taking the kids out to the tide pools and just running around looking for crabs. I've been real lucky about a lot of things in my life, but one of the things has been this ability to stay healthy. I think one of the big things that helps me is that I don't sit it out. I move.
