Rachel Brosnahan is taking “new year, new me” to heart in 2023. Case in point: The star actress appears to be moving beyond The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to take on a new acting gig. Yup, she’s starring in a new play, and showed up to opening night in the coolest look.
Rachel, who plays Iris in The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window paired a zippered bright blue crop top with a black mini skirt, accessorizing the whole thing with toned abs and strong legs. She also shared video of the red carpet on her Instagram Story, writing, “We’re out there opening!” over top.
Here’s a moment a photographer captured with Rachel in her cute getup:
While Rachel clearly has been doing leg and abs day at the gym lately, she recently told Health that she’s not a regular exerciser. “I have never been able to have a set routine,” she said. “Once I realized that it was OK that my physical health journey wouldn’t look like other people’s, it became about finding ways to do what I can when I can.”
The 32-year-old said that she travels a lot for work and her hours are “super inconsistent,” which makes regular workouts a challenge. But Rachel discovered an app that lets her drop in on different workouts classes wherever she is. “I was recently [filming] in New Mexico and started taking Pilates, which I love,” she said. “I’ve noticed a big difference in my posture and core strength.”
She also said she makes a point to take her dogs on long walks on the weekends for her mental health, although it has obvious physical perks, too.
But Rachel told Shape that exercise “keeps me focused and clearheaded,” noting that she likes to do Pilates, yoga, or spinning. “Classes are my preferred method because I have trouble self-motivating,” she said. “If I’m left to my own devices in a hotel room or in my apartment, I probably will choose an extra hour of sleep. It’s harder to skip a class you’ve signed up for.” She also added this: “I live in a fifth-floor walk-up, so I also get a lot of stair action in.”

But, despite struggling with consistency, Rachel says she’s always been active. She told Vanity Fair that she did wrestling in high school, and she open to doing a role that requires physical training. “I haven’t yet done a project that requires me to whip myself into shape, whether that’s an action movie or playing a superhero,” she said. “I’d love an excuse to whip my ass into shape. That would be a real luxury.”
On the food front, Rachel told Shape that she likes to start her days with a green smoothie, along with gluten-free toast with a poached egg and avocado. “For lunch, I have a salad or a sandwich with some kind of protein-like salmon, chicken, or quinoa-and lots of vegetables, and I really like roasted root vegetables with fish for dinner,” she said. “I’m not a great cook, but I can do simple things. I just try to change up the spices.”
Rachel’s play is at BAM Strong Harvey Theatre in Brooklyn, in case you want to check it out!
