Jamie Chung made her TV debut on MTV’s The Real World: San Diego in 2004. But since then, the California native has transitioned into acting in blockbusters (like The Hangover Part II) while blogging for her site What The Chung. The former reality star also partnered with Transitions lenses because she was diagnosed with Pineguecula — raised yellow spots on her eyes — as a result of UV damage. “I’m in my thirties,” said Chung, who loves the brand's fashion-forward looks. "The first thing to go is your eyesight!”
In addition to making strides in career and health, she’s adorably in love with her husband, actor Bryan Greenberg. Approaching the couple’s two-year marriage anniversary, we caught up with the 34-year-old to talk about everything from aging and eyesight, to romantic travels, to her hubby’s sweetest moments.
What’s the most romantic vacation you and Bryan have taken together?
Jamie Chung: We travel quite a bit, and for some reason, we keep going back to Southeast Asia. The first time we traveled there together was for our movie It’s Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong. After the movie wrapped, we decided to take a trip to Cambodia as well as Vietnam. It was really fun. This last year, we went kind of on a honeymoon, but we invited our friends to come with us. We were celebrating our marriage and their engagement. We went back to Hong Kong because we loved it so much. From there, we went to Indonesia. We went to Bali.
Will you and Bryan renew your vows one day or was that a one-time thing?
I think it’s kind of a cool thing. I think it’s a nice idea, but we haven’t really thought about it.
Does Bryan give you feedback on your blog or work?
The only feedback I get is, ‘You have another box.’ Wherever I am, whether it’s New York, LA, Atlanta. He’s like, ‘You’ve got more packages!’ He gives me a hard time about that, but he’s very supportive in terms of what I’ve done with the blog, and occasionally, if I’m in a bind and can’t book a photographer, he’ll help me out with a couple shots. He’s very good about that but I certainly don’t want to put a strain on our relationship. I think it’s healthy to separate work and our relationship.
What’s the most romantic gift he’s given you or romantic thing he does regularly?
He’s the more thoughtful one in the relationship. He knows if I’m having a crazy day, he’ll go out and buy things for dinner or make dinner for me. If he’s been traveling a lot, he’ll book a couples’ massage. He goes above and beyond when it comes to thinking of what I might need. I should probably try and reciprocate that. He’s the best. He’s amazing.
Does Bryan cook a specific dish for dinner?
He’s very good on the grill – charred vegetables or a protein. He eats healthier than I do: barbecue chicken or salmon. I’m not complaining — I’ll eat it.
Do you guys plan on having kids soon?
It’s a conversation that comes up. We certainly have been thinking about it. Not quite yet. I think we’ll wait a little bit.
