CBS ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Star Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Opens Up About Her Love For Motorcycles
As many fans can recall, JMW was cast as Ridge and Taylor’s troubemaking daughter Steffy back in 2008. While she has always been a fan favorite, viewers also love her for her adventurous but also casual and laid back spirit off-screen and on social media.
The actress told the publication that she knew she was a tomboy from a very early age. Jacqueline shared, “I started riding dirt bikes when I was younger, like when I was 4 years old, because of my dad and I’ve been riding ever since. He did the dirt-bike thing when he was younger.
Looking back at old photos, I can’t even imagine — he’s doing all these jumps! My dad’s side of the family, even my older sister, we’re all into motorcycles. We do a charity event every year for my brother-in-law [the late NHL star Bob Probert] and we basically have thousands of bikers all together and we ride for eight hours.
It’s a great ride and it’s cool that we can all do that together now. It’s my yoga now! I love my bike. I don’t have to answer a call phone and I’m just in the moment with it.”
Jacqueline also said that year she even considered riding to the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony on her own motorcycle! “I’m the kind of person who takes things day by day. I rode the motorcycle to the rehearsal and at that point I still didn’t have a dress!” Wood recalls. “
So afterward, I shot down to Rodeo [Drive] and found this jersey [knit] style dress, which was cool because I could roll it up and put it in my backpack! I lucked out!” she chuckles. “My friends make fun of me all the time for going out in my bum clothes. I like to laugh at myself and I’m up for a challenge in that sense, but I’m very girly, as well. I have to wear jeans and boots for my bikes, but I love dresses and jewelry and all that fun stuff.”
