Emily VanCamp Talks About Dating Her ‘Revenge’ Co-Star Josh Bowman


First off– how are my Revengers holding up? Our favorite show is on winter break and this is, well, an extremely difficult time. Christmas is just around the corner, but all we really want is a new Revenge episode, lol! Luckily, our girl Emily VanCamp is getting some press via Women’s Health magazine and she’s sharing some deets about her gorgeous co-star and real-life boo Joshua Bowman. It’s not exactly an episode of Revenge, but I’ll take it! Check out an excerpt from the interview inside!

Emily VanCamp for Women’s Health:

People has the story:

Josh Bowman prefers his girlfriend Emily VanCamp to be au naturel.

“When I take off my makeup, that’s my boyfriend’s favorite,” the Revenge star, 26, tells Women’s Health in its January/February issue of her Revenge costar and real-life beau, 24. “And that, to me, is a symbol of a great guy – someone who doesn’t care about all that [glamorous] stuff.”

VanCamp first realized this special quality her man possessed when she was on a fishing trip with him and his dad in England.

“I was there in my baseball cap and these crappy fishing clothes,” she explains. “And I remember thinking, this is when I feel 100 percent comfortable – in these dirty clothes with fish guts all over them. I know it sounds horrendous. I’m at my most confident when I’m in nature and I don’t have to dress up.”

When it comes to her relationship in general, she understands, “It’s more about accepting each other as separate people,” adding, “Laugh a lot and be really delicate with the other person’s heart, because sometimes you start to take each other for granted. Always remember that neither of you needs to be there. It’s a choice every day to stay together.”

But even a lady in love appreciates her alone time.

“I like to reflect,” she says. “I need that sort of peace and quiet. It’s something my friends and I laugh about: ‘Oh, Emily’s having a night to herself.’ It centers me.”

We got to check an interview Emily did with GQ a while back, and she always comes off like a pretty cool chic. Kinda tomboy-ish, down-to-earth, and super sweet. A lot like her Revenge character… though a little (or a lot) less revenge-y, lol. But I like what she has to say about relationships– think she’s really on point about how easy it is to take a significant other for granted.

Anyway, if you’re missing the show like cray ABC is running a holiday marathon online and they’ll have all the episodes of this season available. Happy Revenge-ing!
