Jenna Dewan-Tatum Fronts Ocean Drive January 2014
Currently in the midst of the first season of her Lifetime series "Witches of East End," Jenna Dewan-Tatum garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the January 2014 issue of Ocean Drive magazine.
The "Step Up" beauty donned designer garbs from David Yurman and Diane von Furstenberg for the Robert Ascroft-shot spread while opening up about a spontaneous moment she and her hubby Channing Tatum shared when they first started dating along with revealing details about how she lost weight after her pregnancy.
Highlights from Miss Dewan-Tatum's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Ocean Drive!
On her workouts:
“I danced for 22 years of my life, hardcore, every day, seven hours a day, so I’m lucky that [my body] likes to snap back to that shape as long as I put a little effort into it, but I’m really active. I work with a trainer named Jennifer Johnson in LA. She’s a dancer as well, and she does this amazing workout that’s part cardio, part strength training, part Pilates-based. I gave birth in London, so I was in England for part of this crazy circus, and all I did was hike. When Everly was born, I was literally rocking her probably 10 times a day for 45 minutes, and I turned it into a workout, doing squats and lunges around the house.”
On her daughter Everly:
“She’s her own soul, but she definitely seems to be leaning towards the musically coordinated of things. She is obsessed with Drake’s ‘Hold on, We’re Going Home.’ If I put that on, she will sleep in ive seconds. Prince’s ‘The Most Beautiful Girls in the World’ also lulls her to sleep. There’s no nursery rhymes, no sweet nursery music to put her down. She is like, ‘No, please. I like the hits.’ I’d like to think that Drake and Prince are pretty bada** for a little girl.”
On her favorite memory with Channing:
"“We were together when the movie came out, but no one really knew who we were. At some point, they threw us a party at the hotel. It was a very beautiful Miami night, and this interviewer brought a boom box and was speaking in Spanish and was like, ‘Here, dance on camera’ – and we looked at each other like, what? So Channing picked up the boom box, put it on his shoulder, and I twirled and did circles around him. We were cracking up! We’re crying, we’re laughing. If I can ever find this on tape, I will be so happy.”
On her busy career and home life:
“I’m learning to just try and find [relaxation] as much as I can for a couple of hours. You get a nap in there, and it builds up – and then you get the day where you’re like, ‘Oh my God, can somebody watch her for five hours? I need to go to sleep!’ I had a newborn [while filming ‘Witches of East End’], so you know that if I enjoy working while I had a 6-week-old in the trailer, it was a fun show to work on.”
