The Office’s Jenna Fischer Calls Hollywood’s Fixation on Losing Baby Weight “Unnatural”
With Hollywood currently caught up in a baby boom, thanks to stars like Beyonce, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Jessica Simpson, it’s natural to wonder how — and when — these celebs will regain the level of fitness they’re known for. But what’s “unnatural,” according to The Office star Jenna Fischer, is the obsession with famous new moms losing their baby weight in record time.
A relatively new mom herself, the actress gave birth to her son, Weston, last September. And she thinks it’s crazy for people to expect celebs to pose in bikinis mere weeks after having a child.
“I actually think that the scrutiny of new mothers’ bodies has gotten out of control,” Jenna told Celebuzz. The last thing a woman needs after giving birth, she says, is to worry how people are going to look at your body. “Who cares if our boobs are hanging low and we have a little more junk in the trunk? We created a human being, everybody. Let’s celebrate!”
