Not fair to put pressure on new moms to lose weight: Winslet
Kate Winslet insists there is nothing bad if a mother takes time to shed her post baby weight.
Los Angeles: Kate Winslet insists there is nothing bad if a mother takes time to shed her post baby weight.
The 'Titanic' star, who gave birth to son Bear 15 months ago, believes the media has created an unhealthy trend for shedding baby weight as soon as possible.
"The media do rush to put... Women on the cover of a magazine, or even... Grab a paparazzi shot of them... Eight weeks post-baby and say, 'Oh look, eight weeks post-baby, doesn't she look amazing?'
"You know, looking amazing eight weeks post-baby is having a belly that still looks like you've got a baby inside it, because guess what - that's what actually happens," the 39-year-old actress said on a US TV show 'Extra'.
"I think it's not right and it's not fair. Having a baby is amazing and not fitting into your jeans... It just doesn't matter and that time of being at home with that little newborn and not having to wear a pair of jeans or slip into a red carpet dress, it's so fantastic and... I wanted it to go on and on forever," she added.
