Nikki Reed on Saving Water, Beauty Secrets and The End of the Twilight Saga

Written on October 11, 2012 at 3:44 pm , by

Actress Nikki Reed is embarking on a new chapter. The 24-year-old is about to celebrate her first wedding anniversary with husband and former American Idol contestant, Paul McDonald; next month, she’ll say goodbye to the Twilight series that she’s been working on since 2009 and she’s busy focusing on maintaining an active lifestyle while making a difference. Which is why she helped kick off the Axe Shower-Pooling event held at the USC Delta Chi fraternity house. Reed gave us the scoop on the Axe initiative plus shared some of her favorite beauty products and workout tips.

Tell me about the Axe Shower-Pooling Campaign.
“The Axe Shower-Pooling Campaign is basically all about conserving water, but it’s a really simple, basic way to feel like you’re doing something without really doing much. The idea behind shower-pooling is pretty simple: it’s more than one person in the shower, so two people, one shower, less water use. And you shower for 5 minutes or less. I’m learning as I go along and I’m just really happy to be involved and stand behind this thing.”

Why did you want to get involved?
“I guess as a public figure, it’s really important to use your voice in a positive way, especially if you have a voice that can be heard by more people than the average person. I think that’s what I’m trying to do is to become involved with things that I would want to become involved with anyway. Like here is an example: Paul and I are getting into composting. For years now I’ve been taking my own bags to the grocery store and reusing cloth bags. This is a step in the same direction except on a wider scale.”

What do you love about the Axe products?
“I grew up with Axe. My brothers used it. I think it brings up a lot of memories. I think what I love about Axe is what they want to do. That’s why I feel connected to them right now, because the message that they want to send out to people. I want to be a part of that message.”

Are there any other beauty products you love?
“I love Benefit Sunbeam and Dior Diorskin Forever. I was talking to my hair and makeup team in the car about how much plastic surgery everyone is having these days and how the best possible thing to do is to just take care of yourself and your skin.”

What about your workout routine: what are your favorite things to do to stay in shape?
“I’m super active and I’ve been really vocal about this because I spent my entire childhood smoking and so it changed the kind of person I was growing into and it changed who I hung out with. It changed my whole lifestyle, so when I quit smoking and I stepped on a treadmill for the first time, it wasn’t about going to the gym and it never has been for me. It was about being able to do things I physically couldn’t do before. I love to hike and I’m learning how to water-ski. I have a coach! Being active is really important to me because it wasn’t an option before. I gave myself a disability by smoking.”

What are your favorite “fuel-up” foods to eat before or after a workout?
“I eat tons of quinoa, tons of brown rice and tons of avocados. I eat like two avocados a day. I’m all about fuel-foods so carbohydrates are my friends.”

The final installment of the Twilight series- Breaking Dawn Part 2 is coming out next month. How do you feel about it coming to an end?
“I think all this time we have been talking about the end, the end, the end in this very hypothetical way. It was sort of so distant and we have been slowly creeping towards the end, so it really didn’t have time to set in. I think it was Comic-Con this year that really did it for me. I was like, ‘Oh, this is the last time we are all going to sit here together.’ I just feel like this has been such a significant part of my life; how could I not feel like I’m affected by this coming to an end? I’m really sad about it. I’ve grown so much as a person and as an actress. I mean, I was 19 when we started and now I’m married. My whole life has changed. It’s really weird to close this chapter.”
