Alexandra Daddario Covers the October Issue of WOMEN’S HEALTH Magazine

Posted on September 07, 2022

Alexandra Daddario is curious, thoughtful, and charmingly approachable. She’s also dedicated to keeping her mind and body prepared for any challenge. For the actor, success comes through hard work, a little levity, and the healing power of acupuncture. As October’s Women’s Health cover star, Alexandra lets us into her world, sharing how she leans into her intuition, listens to her gut, and embraces her competitive side. Plus, in her episode of the Women’s Health “Body Scan” video series, Alexandra takes a deep dive on her body history, opening up about her realistic hair care routine, how she ended up with a scar on her tailbone, her secrets for healthy flawless skin and much more.




On her laid-back, intimate wedding to Hollywood producer Andrew Form (a mere 48 hours after posing for this Women’s Health cover): “I wanted it to feel like a good, easy time without the pressure of convention.”

On gravitating toward artistic pursuits and embracing acting while growing up on New York’s Upper East Side: “I thought it was this incredible opportunity to feel in a world where I constantly felt stifled. I was an emotional child and very sensitive and sweet. I felt things deeply.”

On not giving up after getting fired from her role on the soap opera All My Children after just one year: “I wasn’t a very good actress. I could memorize my lines, but finding my camera, finding my light, even learning how to walk naturally—it took a lot of practice. I knew something was wrong, but I knew I could fix it. I knew that I loved what I did and that I could be better.”

On the success of the HBO limited series The White Lotus, which earned Alexandra her first Emmy nomination: “I never expect these things to happen. They constantly surprise me. I just do what I love.”

On hot yoga and acupuncture–her two secret weapons for maintaining a nimble readiness, in both mind and body:  “If I do them back-to-back, it’s almost like a computer rebooting.”

On becoming ardent about playing chess with husband Andrew Form, and her must-win mentality: “It’s our version of a night out at the club. We’re gonna get a little wild, open a bottle of wine, and fight over chess…. I’m a total monster. I started a account and played to try to learn. I got so good that the next time we played, Andrew was like, ‘What’s going on here?’ I was like, ‘I don’t know.…’”
