The heart healed by itself and, looking at the fit 59-year-old actor, it’s hard to imagine him as anything other than a natural athlete. He received several athletic scholarships upon high school graduation, but decided to go into performing arts.
Dennis continues to be vigilant about staying healthy, and keeps his body fit, particularly his abs, chest and arms, by continually playing sports. Keeping his heart strong and healthy is also a top priority for the actor. He watches his diet to make sure he’s able to keep up with demanding acting roles that require him to be more physical.
In his spare time, Haysbert plays golf whenever he can.
“No one gets to play as much as they’d like unless you’re a pro,” he says. He also enjoys tennis and scuba diving.
