Jenna Fischer has come clean in the past about her difficulty losing the pregnancy weight to son, Weston Lee Kirk. She and husband, Lee Kirk, had their first child back in September. But now the Office star is still slamming Hollywood’s pressures on new mothers.
“I think it’s unnatural,” she told Celebuzz in an interview. “There’s so much pressure on you as a new mom that the last thing you need to have hanging over your head is some expectation of what your body is supposed to look like. I actually think that the scrutiny of new mothers bodies has gotten out of control.”
These words couldn’t come at a better with all eyes on new moms Jessica Simpson and Beyonce who will, no doubt, be expected to get back to their pre-baby bodies quickly. Fischer continues:
“Every new mother just gets a free pass. I’m actually angered by the ‘posing in a bikini six weeks after having my baby’ [trend] … 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!”
Do you agree with Jenna or do you think celebrity moms should be held to a higher standard? Is it their job to get back into shape as soon as possible?
