JENNA DEWAN TATUM
Health Magazine March 2018
World of Dance host Jenna Dewan Tatum graces the March 2018 cover of Health Magazine.
Jenna has a life that's seriously enviable - on top of her sizzling career and hot marriage, she manages to stay healthy and fit. But don't try to tell Jenna her relationship is perfect.
"When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one's perfect."
Instead, Jenna believes in being a great fit with your partner. "It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we've really grown together."

What makes you feel strongest?
Jenna: "Any time I get to use my body—whether it’s a role that requires stunts or something that allows me to dance. I also feel strong when I’m able to be my free, goofy self. I feel the least strong when I’m trying to fit into a mold or a role that isn’t authentic."
What’s your go-to workout?
Jenna: "I do dance-based workouts with Jennifer Johnson [in Los Angeles]. She’s a trainer who is also a dancer and she makes it fun for me. If it’s not fun, I won’t go. We dance, we do routines for 45 minutes to an hour, whatever time we have. It depends on the week, but if I get one or two workouts in, I’m happy."
Are you still a vegan-leaning vegetarian?
Jenna: "I eat mostly vegan, but I’m very accommodating, maybe because I’ve lived with a man for 11 years who’s not vegetarian. Evie is a vegetarian, mostly because I cook for her and it’s what I feel to be healthy for her and easiest. She loves it and wears it like a badge. She will tell everyone, ‘I’m a vegetarian. I don’t eat meat,’ and I tell her, ‘Ev, you can try anything you want,’ but she’s like, ‘Ugh’—very much a chip off the old block in that way. Chan will do meatless, and most of the time it’s what I’m cooking. He’ll do pasta, risottos, things that have a carb element."
Switching gears, how do you keep your marriage solid?
Jenna: "When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect. I think there are such things as great fits. It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we’ve really grown together. Even if one starts to grow, the other catches up and vice versa. But I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work. Both of us have been pretty aware and willing to do that. We’ve always had the same values. But we’re not perfect! Are you kidding? We fight like other couples, we disagree about things, we have days where we don’t really like each other."
