Anne Hathaway thrust an entire human out of her body just two months ago, and now is the time for her to start focusing on losing her baby weight, according to one insensitive personal trainer.
Hathaway told the story when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, opening up about how being the mom of newborn Jonathan had changed her:
"One of them is I actually — not based on this moment, but other moments — feel a lot more confident.”
Hathaway went on to explain that normally going to her West Hollywood gym, full of the sort of dudes who train The Rock for a living, used to intimidate her, but now her newfound confidence has seeped into her workout routine, too:
"I walk in and I’m like, 'Yeah I work out with five-pound weights, but I pushed a baby out of my body. I feel good right now!' So I don’t care what I look like. I feel great!"
It was while Hathaway was feeling fresh and fabulous with her mini dumbbells that a personal trainer sauntered over to totally kill her vibe:
“I’m expecting him to say the thing that you say when someone says they just had a baby, which is, ‘Oh my god, you look great!’ It doesn’t matter if it’s true. If somebody says, like, ‘Oh I had a baby 13 years ago!’ You’re like, ‘You look great!’ That is what you do! That is the etiquette."
“So I say that to this guy, you know, like, ‘I had a baby seven weeks ago.’ And he goes ‘Oh! Trying to lose the baby weight?’"
Luckily, the Oscar winner managed to keep her composure, responding:
‘No ... it’s a little bit too soon to worry about weight. I’m just trying to regain my strength.'"
You do you, Anne — we need you to be feeling as fresh as possible for the new Princess Diaries movie. Not that I'm excited or anything!
Do you think women face too much pressure to lose their baby weight?
