Bette Midler has confessed that she trained extensively before beginning her Caesar’s Las Vegas live show .
Talking with Reuters, the actress and singer revealed the hectic workout schedule she followed in order to prepare her for the demanding production.
“A year before we even started rehearsals, I started doing my warm-ups, getting on the treadmill again and lifting weights,” she recalled.
“It’s fascinating to get on stage and run for an hour and a half, wringing wet at the end.”
Midler also admitted that she is unsure what the next step in her career will be.
“This is one of the down times. Just looking around to see what’s out there. It’s a different world now, with the Internet, iTunes, YouTube, Twitter – all this stuff which is so different from what I do and I really don’t know where I fit in it,” she said.
“I feel if you can entertain a group of people live, you’re really going to be okay, and I’ve always been able to do that. But I’m curious to see where I fit in in this new world, so I’m exploring my options.”
