We are pumped to share one of our favorite stories from Self here on FitSugar!

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. But even genetically blessed movie stars need a little pick-me-up from time to time. That's why Watts, who stars in the big screen drama The Impossible, out this Friday, schedules regular sweat sessions with sought-after personal trainer Simone De La Rue to sculpt a perfect backside. "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. After 20 reps, your buns should be on fire!" Now Watts' buns can be yours—it IS possible.
