Here at MFM HQ, we were pretty impressed to hear that Anne Hathaway decided to hit the gym no less than 3 times just 8 weeks after giving birth to her little boy Jonathan.


No mean feat - and even more impressive due the fact her gym's in West Hollywood and probably frequented by a bunch of hot starlets (just like her) and Thor-type bods.

So we really felt for her when she told Ellen DeGeneres (in a lovely lighthearted interview) about how utterly deflated she was when she didn't get quite the response she was looking for from a personal trainer who approached her in there and started up a convo.

She walked in feeling pretty confident, she told Ellen: "Yeah I work out with 5-pound weights, but I pushed a baby out of my body, I feel good right now. So I don’t care what I look like, I feel great."

When the trainer asked if she'd been to the gym before, she told him: "You know, I have worked out here for a long time, but I’ve been gone because I just had a baby seven weeks ago."

Then she revealed: "I’m expecting him to say the thing that you say when someone says that you’ve had a baby."

You look great.

But instead, the actress reveals, he asked her: "Oh, trying to lose the baby weight?"


Fair do's to Anne, though. She says she kept her composure and told him she was just trying to regain her strength... though after he walked away, she admits she "cried a little bit".

Awww, bless you Anne. For what it's worth we think you look amazing. ?

Did you ever get one comment that totally crushed you after having a baby?

We'd love to know in the comments below, or tell us over on Facebook!
