New York, (ANI): Amy Adams, who gave birth to her first child earlier this year, is in 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.
