“I’ve started to work out — I love that feeling, I love feeling strong,” the actress told PEOPLE exclusively at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she was in attendance to support her monster movie Colossal, which also stars Jason Sudeikis and Dan Stevens.
“I find that my workouts are really different now because I gave birth,” continues Hathaway, 33. “I had been trying to fit into my jeans and it just wasn’t happening, then I stopped trying — and the other day, they fit. I’m not gonna lie, that felt pretty good.”

Hathaway calls her return to the red carpet a “funny, weird experience to have in life,” but something she’s really excited about.
“I think shape is an ongoing thing in everybody’s life,” the Oscar-winning star says. “I’m not trying to recapture something that was. I’m going with what it is now.”
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. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise.) Peace xx #noshame #lovewhatyouhavebeengiven
Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends! So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed. I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter🙂 Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead! ⚡️🦄Annie🦄⚡️
“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,” she says. “So, there’s no rush to do anything. I’m so happy being here.”
