Aja Naomi King hates having a bath because she doesn’t like being near the toilet.

The “Lessons in Chemistry” actress – who has two-year-old son Kian with her husband Dan King – enjoys a relaxing night of pampering at home but admitted she has a “weird” issue with soaking in the tub.

“I’d light a candle – Diptyque’s Baies, which I love.

“I actually don’t like baths. It feels weird saying this out loud but I have an issue with being on the same level as the toilet!

“I’d put on a movie and a face mask and give myself a pedicure with a glass of wine. That would be the most magical night ever,” describing her ideal night in, she told Britain’s HELLO! magazine.

The 39-year-old star is an “introvert” who prefers being in small groups or hanging out with her family.

“I like stillness. I’m a bit of an introvert, so I find energetic connection in small groups of people – just being with my family or my son.

“We love to spend the day at the beach and watch him play. I love nature and hiking and biking, I’m so grateful for the things I have access to and I want to explore them all.

“Our time on earth is brief – I want to enjoy myself and see all the beautiful things.” she said.

And Aja has a habit of cancelling plans at the last minute.

“I’m the kind of person who loves to make plans and then cancel them, so I should set some boundaries for myself in that respect.” she said.
