Eva Marie is looking past professional wrestling and adjusting to life after it.
She spoke to ESPN W about her move toward the movie and film industry. But beyond being on television and movies, she also wants to help others:
I want it all. I really want to expand with movies and I would love to land on a TV show, like a Netflix original series, that would be fantastic. I want to do a lot of charity work — I’m a person that’s in recovery [from an alcohol addiction] so I really want to put out that message as well. There’s a lot that I want to do, the sky is the limit. I want to dabble in everything. I wish I did have time to relax, but I’m a Virgo and it’s just not in me. I think the hustle is just in my blood — always hungry, never satisfied.
She has also formed a relationship with the Rock. She admires his transition from WWE into films, and hopes she can emulate that success:
I love talking to The Rock. He’s done the transition from WWE to the mainstream so well. He always tells me to stay my lane, not to compare myself to other people and just do the work. He’s been fantastic and I’m really fortunate to have that relationship with him. … It would be great to emulate his career, but we’ll see what happens.
In the meantime, Eva Marie has launched her own clothing and accessory line, and is set to be part of a film project next month.
