The Canadian actress, who likes things hot and gets embarrassed often, chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing” …

Last time I said ‘Sorry’
My sister [Kayleen] and I had a little spat over the heat in the house. I like things really hot, and she likes them cold, so I tried to turn the thermostat up while she was out walking the dog.

Last time I cried
On the airplane watching Heaven Can Wait. It wasn’t even a particularly sad movie, it was something about the song at the end. And the altitude always gets you. I was just bawling.

Last time I cringed
Doing stand-up paddleboard yoga with some friends. There are elaborate poses, and we hadn’t gotten everything waxed, and we had this handsome male instructor. I bought full-length board shorts for the next time!

Last song I sang
In the car the other day, Peggy Lee’s “Is That All There Is?” I’m not a great singer, but that one is in my sweet spot. It’s a song I share with one of my best friends in Canada, so I have to belt it.
