Lauren Cohen Covers Shape

Lauren Cohen, ShapeLauren Cohen covers the January/February 2016 issue of Shape.

On being picked on as a kid: “I was very skinny as a kid, but when I was swimming…and just having fun, I never worried about how I looked. In my teens, though, I started to be more aware of my body, and I didn’t like being skinny. People made fun of me for it. So when I got to college, I ate a lot of junk and I gained weight. I loved it because I didn’t stand out as a bony girl anymore! Eating became a way of not getting attention for looking too skinny, but it was also about self-sabotage.”

On her healthy routine: “When I don’t exercise in the morning, it’s a completely different day than when I do. Working out gives me endorphins and makes me happy. I need it! I am the queen of exercise variety.”

On fitting in workouts when filming: “Working out is harder when we’re on set. We film in Georgia, and I can’t go to classes. So I do exercise DVDs that have a lot of leg lifts, kicks, arm lifts — things that don’t need equipment. And I move all the time. I take the stairs, I do press-ups between scenes, and I do sit-ups before I eat lunch.”

On her splurges: “My favorite is Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I’m obsessed with them!”

On her hyper hour: “At four o’clock on the dot every single day, I have the most hyperactive hour of my life. I go into 7-year-old child mode and everything is funny to me. I have seven different voices that I do, and I’ll fly around the set like a bee and talk in my little voices.”

On sleeping: “I don’t have nightmares, even though my work means I’m constantly in darkness. I’m an insanely heavy sleeper. I sleep like the dead! No joke intended.”
