New mum Amy Adams in no hurry to attain beach-ready body

Monday, December 20, 2010

NEW YORK - Amy Adams, who gave birth to her first child earlier this year, is one Hollywood star who is no rush to shed her baby weight.

The actress, now co-starring in ‘The Fighter’, told Parade magazine that there was more to life than having a beach-ready body.

“Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body - meaning that it wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit,” the New York Daily News quoted the 36-year-old as saying.

“I was like, ‘Look, I can carry a baby! I’m gaining weight right, everything’s going well’. And I’ve had that relationship ever since,” she added.

Adams and her fiance Darren Le Gallo became parents to a daughter in May, and the two-time Oscar nominee said she has been too concerned with her bundle of joy since then to give much thought to her curves.

“I’ve been working out when I can, and I’m trying to eat in a healthful way, but losing weight is not my number-one priority,” said Adams.

“It’s part of my job to return to some semblance of what I was before. But I don’t feel I’ve ever made my career on my rockin’ bod,” she added. (ANI)
