"Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body..."
Movie Star Has Shockingly Healthy Attitude About Pregnancy
Actress Amy Adams has publicly professed that losing her pregnancy weight is not her number one priority. But if she doesn't immediately revert to tiny status postbaby, how will we know she's getting revenge-hot on all of her ex boyfriends?
Adams, who gave birth to a baby girl named Aviana seven months ago, noted that while her career as an actress is largely determined how her body looks, her role as a mother necessitates she put weight loss on the back burner. Pregnancy also helped her appreciate her body's ability to do stuff rather than look good, a philosophy I fully support. Says Adams,
Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body - meaning that it wasn't put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit.
Exactly! None of our bodies were put on this earth for other people. How fucked up is it that a movie star saying something healthy and normal about pregnancy is noteworthy news? I'm happy for Amy and her family and wish her the best in doing what she wishes to do with her own body, but, if I may, I eagerly anticipate a day when a movie star professing a healthy outlook on her own body is the rule rather than the exception.
