Anne Hathaway on Why She Loves Her Post-Baby Body for What It Is

Yes, the actress has managed to get back into her pre-baby jeans, but, spoiler alert, it doesn't really matter.

Hollywood isn't exactly known for inspiring body confidence in its inhabitants, but Anne Hathaway still manages to have one of the most refreshing attitudes towards her post-baby body we've ever heard. That doesn't mean the new mom doesn't work hard to keep herself healthy, fit and in a place where she feels comfortable in her own body, though. Anne recently opened up about how she's learned to embrace her postpartum shape six months after giving birth to her son with husband Adam Shulman...and as always, we couldn't be more impressed by what she had to say.

"I think shape is an ongoing thing in everybody's life, so, I'm not trying to recapture something that was. I'm going with what it is now,” Anne said during an appearance at the PEOPLE/Entertainment Weekly/InStyle portrait studio at the Toronto International Film Festival. "Some things I guess are the same as they were, and other things are a little bit different. I'm just so proud of what the changes signify. So, there's no rush to do anything. I'm so happy being here."

But despite Anne's acceptance of her changed body, she's still determined to take care of it with regular trips to the gym. "I've started to work out. I love that feeling... I've been trying to fit into my jeans and it just wasn't happening and then I stopped trying and the other day they fit," Anne said.

The Oscar winner even shared that she's been doing lots of burpees...and that the notoriously difficult move feels easy to her since she's become a mom.

While we've never really thought working out could get easier after having a baby, Anne really does have a point: It's easy to see how burpees or squats or sprints could feel like a breeze after you've experienced childbirth, doesn't it? Or it's something to tell yourself when you're mid hop, anyway.

Can you relate to what Anne said about burpees being a breeze after baby? Are you inspired by her outlook? How did you workout regimen change after you gave birth?
