Katharine McPhee Covers 'Self' March 2012
Here’s what the 27-year-old cover girl and Smash star had to share with the mag:
On her first experience with the NYC subways: “Smash has a set in Brooklyn, and on my first day of work, I said, ‘I’m going to be a real New Yorker, get there on my own and not spend $30 on a cab.’ But I went the wrong way on the subway, and when I asked for directions, the person in the booth was mean to me. So I ended up crying and in a cab anyway. Now the show sends a van for me.”
On how she unwinds after work: “If I’m not too exhausted, my husband [Nick Cokas] and I go out for a nice neighborhood dinner. Or we do leftovers, maybe lentils and turkey burgers, then Pinkberry for peanut butter yogurt.”
On her Smash workouts: “I do a five-hour dance rehearsal. I feel it in my thighs and calves, but it’s so stop-and-go. I miss my real workout … I love my body when I’m in the best shape I can be in. It feels good to be strong.”
FYI: Katharine is wearing a Pleasure Doing Business dress, Mauri Pioppo earrings, a Ferragamo cuff, a Phillips Frankel necklace, and Kate Spade shoes on the cover. She also rocked a KiraKira ring at the shoot.
