Jordana Brewster is currently in the midst of promoting Fast and the Furious 6, and she covers the latest issue of Health Magazine. In the accompanying interview, Jordana discusses her health tips, eating habits, and how she manages to get rid of stress.
She reveals that she manages to stick to healthy foods for most of her diet, and explains, "It's so nerdy, but I pack my own lunches of grilled salmon and brown rice, because it helps me stay on track. Craft services [on-set catering] is hell. It's basically sugar and salt. Sometimes when I work long hours I have trouble with sugar; they'll keep passing me Tootsie Rolls."
She also reveals that she quit smoking a while ago, and has instead taken to doing meditation to deal with stress. She reveals, "I started about three years ago because I was feeling stressed, but now it's more of a spiritual practice. I do Vedic for 20 minutes twice a day. You learn a mantra that is specific to you. People think you have to have nothing going on in your mind, but it's OK to have thoughts come up; they are being released, so you don't have to deal with them anymore. When I'm shooting, I'll go on a different set and just sit. Sometimes it's embarrassing because they'll call me in and I'll be a little dreamy."
Fast and Furious 6 opens on May 24th, 2013 and in addition to Jordana Brewster, stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Luke Evans, Elsa Pataky, Gina Carano, Gal Gadot, Tyrese Gibson, Shea Whigham, Ludacris, and Sung Kang.
