Cindy Busby is an actress on the rise. You may know her as Ashley Stenton, the bad girl on the Canadian series, “Heartland,” which jumped to the U.S. last year.
This year, she’s making her major motion picture debut in the “The Big Year,” which also stars Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. And on Saturday (Jan. 15) at 9 p.m. ET, she stars in a new monster movie on Syfy, “Behemoth.” We think you should get to know the gorgeous Canadian!
Find out which celebrity catches Cindy Busby’s eye plus 10 more fun confessions:
1.) Tell us one thing we don’t know about you.
I love cleaning and organizing my house. Most of my friends don’t get how I can love it, but I really do! It’s something I look forward to on a rainy day, and Vancouver (where I live) has a lot of those.
2.) If you had to choose another career, what would you be?
I absolutely love to cook and I’m pretty great at it, so I could definitely see myself owning a restaurant and making delicious dishes. It’s very satisfying for me to watch people enjoy food that I’ve made because gastronomy is the best way to anyone’s heart.
3.) Which celebrity do you find attractive?
Ryan Reynolds! Not only because he is obviously physically attractive, but also because he’s funny. I love people who are hilarious and don’t take themselves too seriously. I think that quality makes anyone instantly good looking.
4.) What super power would you like to have?
I would love to have the power to turn any situation into a musical. For example, if I was bored at the airport one day and thought to myself, ‘This would be a cool musical number,’ then all of a sudden music would play, people would start singing in harmony, and dancing in perfect choreography! That would be awesome!
5.) What’s your worst habit?
My worst habit would be having trouble relaxing. My mom always tells me, “Cindy, it’s okay to stay home and not do anything,’ and I’ll be like, ‘Yeah, but…’ I just have a lot of energy, so I always want to be doing something. But, once in a while it catches up to me and my body just refuses to do anything else.
6.) Favorite alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink?
Definitely coffee! In any way — plain, latte, cappuccino, iced, hot, and with Baileys. I just love the taste it at any time of the day… I guess you could say I’m addicted and I’d say it just tastes great!
7.) What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
I love to be social by going out for dinner, coffee, and hosting dinner parties. I go to yoga classes, biking, read, shop, and watch movies.
8.) Who do you text with the most?
I definitely text my boyfriend the most. It’s the best way to keep in touch whenever I’m out of town, which is pretty often. We just like to send each other sweet little messages and updates on our day. We both have Blackberrys so we can instantly message each other from anywhere.
9.) What do your friends make fun of you for the most?
I have a pretty great sense of humor, so my friends laugh at all my quirky ‘Cindyisms,’ but I’d have to say that they laugh at my occasional French slip-ups. My mother tongue is French, so once in a while I’ll say something that’s not grammatically correct in English, because I said it without thinking even though I know it’s wrong. But, by that time it’s too late and they tease me for it.
10.) What’s your favorite song to sing in the car?
Right now my favorite song to sing to in the car is ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry. When it’s on the radio I crank the volume and sing my heart out. I think it has a great message and an awesome beat, which pumps me up!
11.) What’s your guilty pleasure?
I love reading my daily dose of celebrity gossip online and I love salt. Things just don’t taste the same without it.
