She Loves Squats

Ortega's favorite exercise move is the squat. "I love doing squats," she says. "I just feel so secure in what I'm doing and I just know that my form—if I'm lifting weights or something, I just know that my form is 100% correct because I know exactly what I'm doing. So that's become my favorite thing to train."


Pescatarian Diet

Ortega gave up being vegan when she filmed in Romania. "I was vegan for a really long time but I stopped being vegan when I went to Romania to shoot Wednesday actually because the food is very different there," she says. "I don't think I was meeting my nutritional requirements so I started eating fish again – so I'm currently pescatarian."


Avocado Lover

Ortega's favorite food is sushi and avocados. "I went vegetarian, and any time people asked me what my favorite food was, I'm so indecisive I couldn't give them an answer," she says. "So I would say, 'Oh, I love avocados.' And people would say, 'But that's not a meal.' Well, I love sushi and I love avocados, and now it's my go-to. You know how kids always go with chicken tenders and French fries? Those are my chicken tenders and French fries."


She Loves To Run


Ortega says she loves working out her legs. "I just feel like they've always been the strongest part of my body," she says. "I love to run. I loved to play soccer growing up."


Ginger Shots

Ortega was inspired to take Moju ginger shots after seeing how much director Tim Burton liked them. "It's not just delicious," says Emma Slattery, RDN, LDN, CNSC, CSO. "Gingerol, a natural component of ginger root, benefits gastrointestinal motility ― the rate at which food exits the stomach and continues along the digestive process. Eating ginger encourages efficient digestion, so food doesn't linger as long in the gut."
