Anne Hathaway on Her Post-Baby Body and Why Doing Burpees Is Suddenly a Breeze

X

After becoming a first-time mom in March, Anne Hathaway is opening up about her body changing post-baby. “I think shape is an ongoing thing in everybody's life,” she said at the People / EW / InStyle Portrait Studio at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, where she’s debuting her new film Colossal (also starring Jason Sudeikis).“So, I'm not trying to recapture something that was. I'm going with what it is now.”

The Oscar-winning actress says although things definitely shift after having a child, that’s something she’s completely fine with. “Some things I guess are the same as they were, and other things are a little bit different. I'm just so proud of what the changes signify. So, there's no rush to do anything. I'm so happy being here.”

She also talks candidly about incorporating working out back in her routine, and how working up a sweat no longer feels like such a challenge. “I find that my workout is really different now because it gave birth,” she says.” I feel like doing burpees now after having a baby is zero big deal.”

[MUSIC] And in entertainment- [SOUND] [MUSIC] I think shape is an ongoing thing in everybody's life. So, I'm not trying to recapture something that was. I'm going with what it is now. And Some things, you know, I guess are the same as they were and other things are a little bit different. And I'm just so proud of what the changes signify. So, there's no rush to do anything. I'm so happy being here. I've started to like work out. I love that feeling. I love feeling strong. And I find that my workout is really different now because it gave birth. Am I excited to go back to the red carpet? Yeah, I mean, it's like it's such a funny weird experience to have in life, and especially when you get to wear beautiful clothes that kind of feel like you're wearing wearable art, that's nice. I've been trying to fit into my jeans. I've been trying to fit into my jeans, and it just wasn't happening, and then I stopped trying, and the other day, they fit. And that felt, I'm not going to lie, that felt pretty good.
