Naomi Watts seemingly has it all: two children, a rich and famous baby daddy (a.k.a. Liev Schreiber) and a career trajectory that could make actresses half her age turn green with envy.

"Like every woman, she is after a perky ballet butt," says De La Rue. "This move is super effective and requires minimal equipment so [Naomi] can really do it anywhere.
