She said she has undertaken the cleansing system of Panchakarma “several times”, calling it “something that”s really important for grounding myself especially if I”ve been stressed out at the end of a movie”.
She added: “I”ve also been practising Ayurvedic medicine and I”ve read the Bhagavad Gita and Rumi and these are very important.
