Sophia Bush has found a rough-and­tum­ble home on ac­tion show Chicago PD (2014-cur­rent). The 35-year-old plays De­tec­tive Erin Lind­say and says that “I am ready to go! I love box­ing – there’s some­thing fierce and pri­mal about us­ing your body’s force that way. I also jump out of air­planes for fun and race cars – and I have three pit­bulls!”

She isn’t just beauty and brawn – she’s got brains too. “I med­i­tate for 20 min­utes ev­ery morn­ing and clear my mind with a two-mile run. Keep­ing my mind in top shape keeps me in a bet­ter place and I can fo­cus on the other things, like jump­ing out of planes!”

Pho­tog­ra­phy isn’t just a hobby for her – it’s where she got her name. Her par­ents are ac­claimed pho­tog­ra­phy teach­ers Charles Wil­liam Bush and Mau­reen E Bush and ran a pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dio for celebri­ties, like ac­tress Sophia Loren, who popped in for a shoot when Mau­reen was preg­nant.

But un­like her name­sake and idol, Sophia hasn’t been lucky in love. In 2005, Sophia mar­ried her One Tree Hill (2003-2012) co-star Chad Michael Mur­ray and they di­vorced five months later. “It dev­as­tates me that I’ve been re­duced to a Hol­ly­wood statis­tic – an­other joke mar­riage. I never ex­pected to be mar­ried more than once… be­cause I knew what I was get­ting into and will al­ways be­lieve in love.”

She sup­ports a num­ber of char­i­ties and the Maa­sai Wilder­ness Con­ser­va­tion Trust, which sup­ports the bio­di­ver­sity of East Africa tribal lands.

And while she’s li­censed to carry a con­cealed weapon, that may not help when she comes face-to-face with spi­ders. “You came in my house. You’re an in­truder. Get out!” she laughs.
