Get to know Emilie Livingston.

Though currently residing in Los Angeles, the Ontario-native is a Canadian by birth — and has represented her country on the largest stage.

Livingston is a professional athlete and former Olympian, having qualified as a rhythmic gymnast in 2000. While competing in the Olympic Games showcased her talents on a global stage, she can still be seen showing them off in a big way.

Joining her husband, Jeff Goldblum, in Hollywood, Livingston has put forth her contortionist and gymnast skills to a number of projects across television, film, and music.

The athlete and Jurassic World Dominion star met in 2011, announced their engagement in July 2014, and tied the knot at the famed Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles on Nov. 8, 2014. It was the first marriage for Livingston and third for Goldblum (who was previously married to Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis). Since then, they've had two sons: Charlie Ocean in 2015 and River Joe in 2017.

From her time as an Olympian to the famous actresses she's body doubled, here's everything to know about Livingston.

Livingston competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics, representing her home country of Canada in rhythmic gymnastics. She eventually placed 17th.

The Olympics defines rhythmic gymnastics as a "women-only event in which gymnasts perform on a floor with a rope, hoop, ball, clubs or ribbon accompanied by music, in individual or group events."

At only 11 years old, Livingston moved to Russia to train professionally at the famous Novogorsk camp in Moscow. She thought it necessary to make the move to seriously pursue her passion, due to the lack of resources in Canada.

"My first coach, I saw her perform in Toronto… This is where I first saw a high level representation of Rhythmic Gymnastics," Livingston told Vol Up 2. "What I was exposed to in Canada wasn't near that level. Canada doesn't have the same resources ... for the sport to really be taken to its highest potential."

During an interview with Neon Tommy, she admitted, "I don't know how I survived it, but I am really glad I did. I think it made me a really strong and courageous person."

She added, "One thing about the Russians, they have no mercy. I wasn't around my family, there was no one there to coddle me, but it helped bring my skill level up tremendously."

She started ballet at age two

Livingston discovered her love for dance at a young age, prior to pursuing gymnastics. She said that any opportunity to accompany her older sister to a dance lesson turned into a chance to try to attend classes herself.

"I would be at the dance studio with my mom.  While she was dressing my sister, I would use that opportunity to bolt, and sneak into a class," Livingston told Vol Up 2.

"Eventually, it continued from there and I was placed in a dance class without having to sneak into it. Here, my love of being on the stage, for creativity and movement began to take off," she recalled.

Coincidentally, the professional gymnast met her husband in a gym one day in California. "We were at Equinox on Sunset Blvd., the gym," Goldblum told Wired.

He continued: "I saw her from across a crowded room, and I marched up to her, entranced, and began some kind of conversation."

She played Rihanna's body double in a movie

She subbed for Rihanna's character, Bubble Dancer, in 2017's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and Emma Stone's La La Land character, Mia, in 2016.

She's also had some major Hollywood moments as herself, notably performing as a solo aerialist at the 88th Annual Academy Awards for The Weeknd's Oscar-nominated song "Earned It."

She likes to cook

Despite Livingston and Goldblum's hectic Hollywood work schedule, their social media shows them spending lots of time with kids Charlie and River, between beach vacations in the Caribbean to sightseeing and ice-cream in New York.

Livingston regularly shares photos of the couple's sweet (and talented!) kids on social media — and her Jurassic Park husband hasn't been shy in speaking out about his blissful home life.

"I feel right on schedule and I love our two boys," he told Us Weekly of becoming a dad at 63. "Everything seemed to happen perfectly. I appreciate it wildly."
