Adoring Jamie ChungYour best source about Jamie Chung.

Jamie Chung swears by three simple get-fit strategies: morning meditation, YouTube yoga and the perfect smoothie.

The best thing to do is start with a five-minute meditation when you first wake up,” the actress, 35, tells Us Weekly exclusively while attending “The Pop Shop By Vita Coco” in New York City’s Soho neighborhood on Thursday, July 19. “It’s so easy to be so stressed out and [with] all the pressures we put on ourselves, just take five minutes to meditate and get your mind right, everything else will follow.

The Gifted star admits that while she’s not always motivated to work out, she knows a sweat session will do her mind and body good. “I like to move every day, I just feel better after I’ve moved, it’s about your state of mind and giving yourself some endorphins,” she tells Us.

Chung fits fitness in however she can: “I’m obsessed with classes,” she says. “So either I’ll commit to a class or take my dog on a long walk or run. I follow Alo Yoga on YouTube and do their power vinyasa videos. If I’m super lazy I’ll say ‘Ok, let’s just start with 50 sit-ups, then 50 more then 15 push-ups and go from there.’ Then I’ll do some squats. It’s about being superconscious of what you do to your body and what you put in your body.

She’ll also hit the gym solo to keep her svelte physique.”If I’m in the gym, I like a 15-minute warm-up on the treadmill, then I go to the [crossover] cable trainer and I do a jump pull-up and then static holds and then I’ll slowly come down — it really works your whole body,” she reveals to Us. “I also do triceps and compound movement, like push presses and then squats with kettlebells. I’m all about time.

She amped things up even further for the Marvel-inspired Fox show, however, telling Us, “I started training myself. I took the initiative thinking something physical will be coming so I’ve been training with Nick, a Muay Thai trainer at Unit 2 Fitness in Atlanta, and we’ve been doing a lot of one on one.

To stay fueled before, after and during her workouts, Chung says she reaches for coconut water: “I love Vita Coco because it replenishes and it has electrolytes and it’s delicious. I’m obsessed with the Sparkling Lemon Ginger to de-bloat — it’s half carbonated water and half coconut water so you don’t get as much bloat as a fully carbonated drink and it’s a great alternative to sodas. I am addicted to soda, so this is helping wean myself off.

As for that morning smoothie, Chung has mastered the perfect DIY recipe: “Vita Coco, a banana, vanilla protein and spinach — that’s it!

Jamie Chung’s skills extend beyond acting. This newlywed also has a knack for decorating and entertaining. Case in point: her stunning backyard. The Once Upon a Time star recently joined forces with reasonably priced online home retailer Joss & Main to give her outdoor space a swoon-worthy makeover. After you see it, you’ll understand why Jamie loves throwing al fresco parties.

Her big tip for outdoor entertaining? “Set the time for arrival an hour or two before the sun sets or make sure there is a shaded area for your guests and make sure there is plenty of seating!” It’s all too easy to forget that the sun greatly influences the temperature, so planning around this is an all-star hostess move. Jamie adds that she always has bug repellant candles and SPF on hand to keep everyone comfortable.

Jamie’s deck was stained dark, so when designing the space she says one of her first goals was to lighten the space up. “I picked out the carpet and a couple of vases I thought would look really nice, and the Joss and Main team picked out these cool wicker chairs and sofa.”

Most people think of accent decor as an inside-only design feature, but layers of pillows, blankets, and area rugs are just the thing to make your outdoor space feel like a cosy extension of your living room.

Succulents are the way to go!” Jamie says when asked her secret to the abundant greenery on her patio. “We get sun almost all year-round, and California has had a horrible drought for the past couple of years, so plants that require less water are the way to go.

Wanting to avoid anything clunky, while still decorating with the comfortable pieces her husband Bryan loves, Jamie went with a mix of metal, rattan, and wicker furniture. It’s inviting while being able to stand up to the elements.

Jamie Chung says adopting 2-year-old miniature Schnauzer-Shih Tzu Ewok with husband Bryan Greenberg has taught them both lots of life lessons — including how to be ready for potential future children.

It’s always nice, especially with a partner, to be able to put something else before ourselves, and it’s taught us a lot of responsibilities,” the Gotham star, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively for the 2017 World’s Most Beautiful issue. “It’s kind of like a training baby I guess you could say. It’s wonderful. It requires us to communicate more with each other.
Another perk of being dog owners?
It’s certainly gotten us healthier,” says Chung. “We’re always outdoors, we’re always at a park, we’re always checking out the local hikes. It’s fun.

The actress says her pup — who was named after the Star Wars characters because “he had the markings of an Ewok” when she brought him home from Saving SPOT! Dog Rescue in Los Angeles when he was 8 weeks old — sometimes acts more like a cat than a dog.

He’s just an overall quirky guy,” says Chung. “He loves light, and any reflection he goes absolutely nuts.

Chung says Ewok also loves water — “When it snows or when it rains, he likes to bite and chase raindrops and snowflakes — it’s the cutest thing!” — but he’s afraid of small children.

He’s kind of wary of toddlers because they’re so unstable and unpredictable, and they’re eye-level, so I think it kind of freaks him out!

Jamie Chung is entering the Marvel universe.

The Gotham actress has signed on to play the famed character Blink in Fox’s Marvel drama pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The untitled project revolves around two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Also known as Clarice Fong, Bing is described as sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy. Her naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly ‘home’, Clarice is slowly becoming herself again.

First introduced in the X-Men comics in 1994, the character of Blink also boasts the power of teleportation. She was portrayed by Chinese actress Fan Bingbing in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Matt Nix (Burn Notice) will serve as showrunner and also executive produce alongside franchise veterans Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg as well as Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. X-Men film franchise veteran Singer will also direct the pilot, which hails from 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel.

Chung is the first actor cast in the highly anticipated project. The role would keep Chung at Fox, where she is currently playing another comic book character, Valerie Vale, on the network’s Gotham. Her other credits include Once Upon a Time, The Hangover Part II and Big Hero 6.
