She Doesn't Live in Fear

"I'd like to think that I'm not a very fearful person," Ashley recently told Glamour. "We're in an industry that, yes, as an artist you can feel certain pressures at times, but we're not performing heart surgery or curing diseases or having lives dependent on us. That's real pressure. When I put that into perspective, I'm like, 'It's fine.'"

Ashley likes to get her sweat on al fresco. "I'm a big nature person," she told Conde Nast Traveller. One method she adores? "I love hikes, going to the beach, eating really good food. For me, a perfect vacation would be exhausting myself playing in the sand, swimming, hiking, exploring, and then treating myself to an absolutely massive meal and some really nice wine with friends and good music. I'm trying to be a bit more cultured and push myself to do more city-searching and going to exhibitions and all of that. But at heart, I'm a big explorer," she said.

Ashley likes to get her fight on. She revealed to Glamour that she spent her downtime during filming "hanging with her dog, watching old episodes of Friends, going on hikes. She learned kickboxing, ate healthy, and even managed to get some reading done."

Ashley also rides horses. She told Glamour UK that she has improved since Bridgerton. 'I'm quite natural and I'm quite sporty anyway,' she said. "At the start, I was in the saddle every other day, pretty much for one to one and a half hours a day. I loved it." She added that it also helps her mental health. 


She Drinks Green Juice

In one of her Instagram videos, Simone chugs green juice out of a large pitcher. "Consider blending instead of juicing. Blending the edible parts of fruits and vegetables produces a drink that contains more healthy phytonutrients and fiber. Fiber can help you feel full," says the Mayo Clinic. "If you try juicing, make only as much juice as you can drink at once; harmful bacteria can grow quickly in freshly squeezed juice. If you buy commercially produced fresh juice, select a pasteurized product."


She Loves Fish


Salmon is Ashley's go-to food for energy, especially prior to shooting. "On my first day, I was like, "OK, first day as a leading lady, got to eat lots of food, be really energized. So, I had this massive portion of salmon and that's when I needed to be sick, basically because I was wearing the corset," she told Glamour UK. "I realized when you wear the corset, you just don't eat. It changes your body. I had a smaller waist very momentarily. Then the minute you stop wearing it, you're just back to how your body is. I had a lot of pain with the corset, too, I think I tore my shoulder at one point!"
