Cerny’s mom is a martial arts master, and Cerny wanted to be just like her. She got her first black belt in tae kwon do at age 11. She also had dreams of joining the CIA (which are currently shelved).
Cerny is a self-described ‘thrill junkie,’ and did a 120 mph free-fall jump out of an airplane. She invented a sport called mountain blowing.
Cerny posed for Playboy as a springboard for acting, but it didn’t help as much as she wanted. So when a friend suggested Vine, she tried that, which turned out rather well for her.
Cerny started a charity called ‘The Play Foundation’ to help people in areas hit by natural disasters.
