The pair have got refreshingly candid.
You know that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you realise the A-list are actually just like us? Well, you’re about to get a whole lot more.
We’ve often wondered how new celebrity baby mummas return to their original shape in 0.23 minutes, but by the sounds of Anne Hathaway and Blake Lively, we’re kinda glad we don’t have that pressure.
During an appearance on an Australian TV show, Blake Lively- who gave birth to her daughter James 19 months ago and is now expecting a second- wasn’t happy when her interviewer complimented her post-baby figure in new film The Shallows, and said new mums should celebrate their bodies.
“It’s so unfair.
“I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing. You don’t have to be Victoria’s Secret-ready right away. You’ve just done this incredible miracle that life has to offer. You gave birth to a human being. I would really like to see that celebrated.”
Anne Hathaway, meanwhile, gave birth to baby boy Jonathan in March and took to Instagram yesterday to share an empowering message.
She said: “There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose weight (if you want to lose it at all). There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer’s are just too dang short for this summer’s thighs. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It’s all love (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise). Peace xx #noshame #lovewhatyouhavebeengiven”
See- just like us. Warm, fuzzy feelings all round.
