It feels like celebs live in an alternate universe: They have tricked-out gyms and personal trainers. They don’t worry about what’s for dinner—their personal chef will handle that. Not to mention, they can afford crazy-expensive cleanses (that probably don’t work). So whenever a magazine claims celebrities are “just like us,” we respond with the usual eye roll. But Anne Hathaway just shared a very real moment on Instagram that makes us just a bit less cynical about Hollywood. The Oscar-winning actress recently had a baby, and when she tried on last summer’s shorts, they didn’t fit. She shared her quick fix and an inspiring message with her Instagram followers:
There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever).
There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all).
There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer’s are just too dang short for this summer’s thighs.
It’s all love
(don’t let anyone tell you otherwise).
