Patrick Stewart, 75, isn't letting his age stop him from having a fantastic body. Stewart recently posted a picture of himself on Instagram while enjoying some vacation time. It's clear from the picture that Stewart hasn't been missing days at the gym. His abs had some clear definition in the picture. Stewart is no stranger to Instagram as he is known for posting fun pictures, selfies with his best friend Ian McKellen and showing off his colorful personality. During his appearance at the Golden Globes, Stewart explained the meaning behind the picture, it was all about color coordination. "It wasn’t the abs I was thinking of showing. The pink shorts, the pink beach shoes and the pink cocktail I had in one hand -- I was color coordinated and that was what it was really about," the Blunt Talk actor said, reports Entertainment Tonight. He also unveiled his secret to having such a great body. He said it's simply push-ups. Stewart keeps a busy work schedule. In addition to starring in Starz's Blunt Talk, he is planning on appearing as Professor X one last time in the upcoming Wolverine 3.

Dear #HFPA, I am so overjoyed by my @goldenglobes nomination I decided to coordinate my look today. #aquasocks
