Christina Applegate’s Pregnancy Diet: Fried Cheese

She may look like Hollywood perfection in her new film Going the Distance, but when it comes to being a real-life would-be mom, Christina Applegate is all about the food cravings.

“I crave food! I don’t care what it is!” she said on Lopez Tonight Thursday evening.

“I came here and within 30 seconds I had a Sprinkles cupcake and a bunch of fried cheese. I eat macrobiotics for the most part, and I eat really well … until I came here.”

And her daily dressing routine is just as topsy-turvy as her appetite, she says.

“It’s a challenge getting dressed, like to figure out proportion, because if you wear skinny jeans then you look like Humpty Dumpty! I’m learning how to balance.”

Humpty Dumpty! Comparing a pregnancy to a nursery rhyme.
Worry about your skinny body – why not stop being selfish – worry about baby on the way.

Becky on

So happy for her! She deserves to be happy! She’s gorgeous and I’m sure this child will be beautiful as well🙂

hector on

Oh Grace, my goodness lighten up, she was just making a joke.

Cher on

to Grace: Grow up and maybe take a look in the mirror and worry about yourself. There are obviously some issues there

Christina you look beautiful🙂 All the best you all of you

Kerri on

She compared what she looked like to a nursery rhyme Grace – stop being so cynical and negative! She’s a cancer survivor and this is a tremendous blessing in her life! From one survivor to another – Congrats Christina! You are gorgeous!

I saw her on David Letterman the other night while I was feeding my new born. it was a funny show. I laughed so hard at one point I scared my baby.

Dawn on

Geez Grace, get a grip. She is just making a funny – you know how people do that when they are happy and enjoying themselves. She seems to be really enjoying her preganacy, and she should after everything that poor lady has been through. And I am sure behind her pretty smile and wise cracks she is just like all of us – a nervous wreck until the baby is actually here and given a clean bill of health. Best wishes to Christina!!!

Grace, *no where* in this article did it say that she’s worried about her body size. “Skinny jeans” refers to a style of jeans that are straight and fitted, and isn’t a reference to her being a size 2 before she got pregnant and a bigger size now with pregnancy weight. Sometimes it helps to know what you’re talking about before you slam someone; it’s a good idea not to always assume the wost. I for one am ecstatic that she’s having such a happy, healthy pregnancy after what she’s gone through in the past few years. My only regret is that she’s being judged so harshly by the peanut gallery.

Sooo Rich on

Thank you, Hector and Cher…strange comment from grace.
Christina is so beautiful on the inside as well as the out. Such an adorable couple. Love them!

Kat on

Obviously Grace has never been pregnant. I’m almost seven months and figuring out outfits can be quite a challenge. Since I am a person, and not just a baby factory, I do have a right to want to feel well dressed and put together.

A happy mom makes for a happy baby, and I wish Christina a happy time!

Elda on

i agree, she does look radiant and Gorgeous!

Shannon on

Fried cheese?

sar on

Ok I actually thought the Humpty Dumpty comment was hilarious. Since Humpty Dumpty is round up top with little skinny legs.

Hea on

Grace seems really sour and fried cheese seems really nasty. Christina looks absolutely radiant though. I bet she’ll only get more and more beautiful by each month of pregnancy.

Melissa on

I agree with everyone about the comment ‘Grace’ left. It really seems like you don’t know what you are talking about. Why be so negative? Maybe one day, you will learn to appreciate the positive.

Congrats! How exciting for her. She always cracks me up and seems like such a ‘normal’ lady…….heck I have troubles putting outfits together and I am not pregnant. I can’t even imagine being pregnant and your body is basically changing daily and trying to keep up with that. Fried cheese? Sounds good…….never had it but anything fried has to be pretty darn good! At least she is getting her calcium. = )
