In addition, she admitted that her workload made her feel tired. “I nap all the time anyway and I don’t need to be more tired than I usually am.” she said.
She said that the green “space bread” was delicious though. Doing the scene of her eating bread over and over again however made her feel full. When asked how she shed off the added weight bread gave her she said that she does a four hour workout in four days a week which was part of a training regime.
In the interview, she also revealed that she had a bad wrist which made it impossible for her to do press ups. Therefore, she sticks to treadmill, which for her, is a great way of showing strength. “I always feel really badass when I get off the treadmill. I feel powerful.”
