Jamie Chung reveals the 'secret' to wedding planning and her latest passion project



Planning a wedding while working with your fiancé might seem like a nightmare to some, but Jamie Chung and her future husband, Bryan Greenberg, found the secret to making it work.

"It's important to save your engagement by hiring a wedding planner," Chung joked in an exclusive interview with AOL. "Otherwise, I do think you could drive each other crazy."

Jokes aside, Chung, 32, who is for her roles in big-budget films like "The Hangover Part II," welcomed the change of pace in making an indie film with her better half.

"I'm pretty excited to be able to do press together for that and spend a lot of time together before the crazy day," she said.

With "It's Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong" set to premiere and her upcoming nuptials this summer, Chung has a "crazy" summer ahead of her. But that's not stopping her from pursuing in issue close to her heart. The California girl has partnered with Heal the Bay and Malibu Rum, which are sponsoring beach clean-ups throughout the summer in the greater Los Angeles area, to promote clean beaches across the country.

"The message we're trying to send is regardless of wherever you are, you do what you can to keep your shorelines and waterways clean," she said. "We should be mindful about what we use on the beach, because it does end up in the ocean."

For Chung, the beaches are personal.

"As a California girl, I'm getting married in California, walking distance from the beach. It kind of all ties in. It's a huge part of my life."

Many people don't realize the impact they have on their beaches, and Chung says small changes can make a big difference in making sure your shoreline activities don't become an environmental hazard.

"I think the rule of thumb is, whatever you bring with you, you should take out with you at the end of the day -- and if you feel like going above and beyond, you could help pick up litter that's washed up on the shore," she said. "It's not a lot of work, but in the end, it makes a huge difference."
