In an interview with Stylelist.com, Barker explains how his compassionate lifestyle helps him feel good on the inside and out.
“My wife stopped wearing fur 35 years ago, and she wasn’t trying to influence me, but by example she did,” Barker says. “I had several leather jackets and coats with sheepskin that I gave away. I stopped wearing leather belts and then stopped wearing leather completely. And this was all before I became a vegetarian about 32 or 33 years ago.”
The longtime vegetarian — who also avoids dairy products — credits his diet and exercise routine for keeping him youthful.
“I exercise every day,” explains Barker. “I do a lot of stretching. I was told years ago, ‘Stay stretched out, Bob. When people start looking old, it’s because they haven’t been stretched out. That’s the secret.’”
