Once Upon A Time Star Jennifer Morrison Opens Up About Living With Migraines & More

May 2, 2016 by Jeanine Edwards
shefinds | Celebrity

It may seem like celebrities don’t have a care in the world, but they are people just like the rest of us. They love a good deal as much as the next woman and yes, they even get sick sometimes. Not many people talk about what it’s like living with migraines, which is why we’re so impressed that Once Upon A Time actress Jennifer Morrison is speaking up. Together with More to Migraines, Jennifer is working to raise awareness because migraines are so much more than “bad headaches.” Below, she shares her tips for preventing migraines.

SHEfinds: We’re such huge fans–tell us how you got started acting?

Jennifer Morrison: I’ve been acting since I was 5-year-old. I’ve always thought of myself as an actor and pursued every possibility to create characters.

SF: Besides acting, what are some things you love to do? What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?

JM: I love watching old movies, listening to vinyl records. I also love traveling.

SF: What are some quick and easy strategies you have for fighting off a migraine you feel coming on?

JM: Trying to schedule enough sleep so I’m not exhausted and making sure I drink enough water. Strobing lights are a trigger for me so I try to avoid those if possible.

SF: What about when it’s too late? What are you go-to ways to cure a migraine fast?

JM: Each person’s symptoms and treatment can be different, so it’s best to talk with your doctor. For me, my migraine is more than just a headache. It comes with sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, a throbbing headache and total exhaustion. My doctor has been a critical partner in helping me manage my migraine and MoreToMigraine.com is a great new resource for migraine sufferers to talk to the doctor about migraines.

SF:  What about diet? Are there any foods you avoid (or indulge in) to keep migraines at bay?

JM: I know a lot of people’s triggers include things like chocolate, red wine and caffeine. For me I really just try to stay really well hydrated.

SF:  If you weren’t an actress, what would you be doing?

JM: I would normally say directing, but I just launched my new production company–Apartment 3C Productions–and will be making my feature directorial debut working on the film Sun Dogs.
