During a Tuesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, new mom Anne Hathaway opened up about welcoming her firstborn child, son Jonathan Rosebanks, 8 weeks ago and her new appreciation for her body.
“Being a mom has changed me in a couple ways. [Most] moments I feel more confident,” she shared.
She went on to talk about working out in West Hollywood, Calif.
“I work out in West Hollywood, so you see, like, Thor’s trainer — you know, the people who have too many muscles to be in The Avengers — so I would normally walk in and feel so intimidated,” she shared. “But [now] I walk in, I’m like, ‘Yeah I work out with 5 lb. weights, but I pushed a baby out of my body, I feel good right now.’ ”
That said, during a recent workout, the Alice Through the Looking Glass actress didn’t exactly “wow” anyone.
“He comes up to me. He’s like, ‘So you been working out at this gym a long time?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, he’s hitting on me. Nice, new mom.’ I feel really good about myself and I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, I’ve been coming here for a little bit,’ ” she said of a recent encounter at the gym.
“He’s like, ‘Cool, I’m a trainer here and just wondering if you want some pointers,’ ” she laughed. “And I’m like, ‘Oh no, he’s not hitting on you, he just wants a job!’ ”
That Academy Award-winning actress, 33, went on to share her gym story.
“I’m expecting him to say the thing that you say when someone says they’ve had a baby,” she said, “which is, ‘Oh my god, you look great!’ ”
She added: “Doesn’t matter if it’s true. If somebody says, ‘I had a baby 13 years ago,’ you say, ‘You look great.’ That is what you do, that is the etiquette. So I say to this guy, ‘I had a baby seven weeks ago.’ And he goes, ‘Oh, trying to lose the baby weight!’ ”
