The 29-year-old actress stays in shape by following an active lifestyle. Currently, she’s into yoga, specifically hot yoga. “I go to yoga, I really love hot yoga, it’s really addictive. I love to sweat it out, it makes me feel great, and the heat keeps your muscles open.”
She also shared how she previously practiced kickboxing and taekwondo. “I used to do kickboxing and tae kwon do. I like rock climbing, and just walking. If I lift weights, I’ll look huge,” the Canadian star added. As for her diet, she said she doesn’t follow any. As a matter of fact, she doesn’t like dieting because it makes her unhappy to worry about what she eats. She’s since decided she’s better off happy and stress-free.
