Relaxed: She explained she loves the ‘healthy lifestyle’ over in LA, but often ditches the glamorous side to relax at home with Mark
Before adding of their recent glamorous evening at the Oscars: ‘We were pinching ourselves! We were nicking the napkins, putting them in our bags. And there was a free bar, so my dad was enjoying that. We had such a great time.’
She also revealed she loves the health and fitness focus in LA, which encourages her to go to the gym more to ‘de-stress’.
‘I love the healthy lifestyle out there, it forces me to get to the gym, even though I don’t want to,’ she explained.
‘I like it, but I like coming home. I go to the gym purely to de-stress. I’m not the type of person who goes to the gym and goes, ‘Oh, I love the gym’. No I don’t, I hate it. But the feeling afterwards…you feel great.’
Low-key love: She said of her date nights with Mark: ‘We sometimes like to chill out, in PJs, and get a takeaway’ (pictured together in January 2017)

She added with a laugh: ‘I took him into a yoga class when I was in LA once – he walked out halfway through. He didn’t like it, not for him at all!
‘Don’t get me wrong, we go to the gym sometimes together, but I will do my thing and he will do his thing.’
While they make the most of the glamorous LA lifestyle, Michelle revealed she and Mark prefer to relish their time together, and mostly relax at his Stateside home.
