Uzo Aduba is keeping fit during lockdown by taking spinning classes.
The Orange Is the New Black actress revealed in a video interview with Elle.com that she is maintaining her fitness while self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic by hopping on her spinning bike and participating in virtual classes.
“I’m staying active now with the spin bike. I sign up and I take classes on it. I love it, I really do enjoy it and it feels like a break somehow from the day-to-day,” she shared.
The 39-year-old also revealed that she was using the extra time during lockdown to indulge in her love of cooking.
“I love, love, love to cook so it’s been really awesome getting to take recipes that I’ve never made before and try them, (or) no recipe, just having an idea for something and making it, just experimenting in the kitchen has been really nice and having the time to do that,” Uzo said.
And the Mrs. America star admitted she spent a lot of time doing her make-up in preparation for the interview and remembered how “luxurious” it feels to have it done by a professional.
“I did my nails today. This is a gel manicure. I had gotten a gel machine way back and I did it today. I’m very proud of it,” she explained. “I did my make-up today really indulgently. I was originally only going to put on eyeliner and mascara but then I was thinking about how my make-up artist Janice, when she does it, how luxurious that feels. It’s a luxurious experience, period. I just wanted to give that to myself today so I just took a long time putting it on.”
