Zoë Saldana: My Body Was ‘Really Bent Out of Shape’ After Giving Birth

04/10/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

This mom isn’t taking no for an answer.

On Friday, Zoë Saldana posted a photo on her Facebook page showing her working up a sweat on a treadmill.

She accompanied the photo, in which she sports a red T-shirt and colorful leggings, with a lengthy description of her journey to reclaim her body after giving birth to twin boys Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio in November.

“Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief. In some cases more than others, your body experiences a kind of trauma through childbirth that is difficult to explain unless you’ve had that experience,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star, 36, writes.

“My case was like that, everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed. Thank God, we are all doing great now, but my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born.”

Olivia Wilde on Body After Baby: I’m a Mother, and I Look Like One

03/31/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Olivia Wilde is talking straight about what it’s like to be a new mom — after giving birth to son Otis Alexander 11 months ago, she has embraced her post-baby body.

“I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot,” she says in a profile she wrote herself in the April issue of Shape, on newsstands now.

“The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles, and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one.”

Ali Larter Steps Out 7 Weeks After Baby – and It’s ‘Nerve-Wracking’

03/11/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Mom’s night out!

Seven weeks after welcoming her daughterAli Larter stepped out for her first event to attend the launch of Calia By Carrie Underwood in West Hollywood on Monday. But with her two children — including 4-year-old son Theodore — at home, the outing was bittersweet.

“It’s a little nerve-wracking,” she told PEOPLE, “I’m a little shaky, but I’m having a nice dinner with my girlfriends after and I think part of that’s important to be able to talk to other moms … and be in it together a little bit.”

Larter, 39, who showed off her body after baby in skinny jeans, a cream blouse and houndstooth blazer, has yet to return to her regular workout routine. Instead, the mom of two has been hitting the trails to get back in shape. “I do a lot of hiking,” she says. “For me, it’s walking and hiking and I just started to get back into my Pilates just to really firm me up again.”

She adds, “I gained 55 lbs., with my babies so I pack on the pounds and they nurse it out of me.”

It has been well worth the wait: Zoë Saldana is back on the red carpet!

After skipping the Golden Globes to spend time with her twin boys, the new mama arrived at Sunday’s Oscars, where she showed off her incredible body after babies in a fitted frock.

The actress turned her appearance into a date night with husband Marco Perego as she stunned in a blush-colored Versace gown that hugged her curves and showed off her best assets. Saldana, 36, paired her ensemble with a teardrop statement necklace and kept her long dark longs pulled back into a simple chignon.

“When you have just had two babies — two babies — you let go and you’re not as demanding when it comes to fashion,” the new mom told InStyle days before the Oscars. “You ask yourself, ‘What is very flattering as my body is getting itself together again?’ ”
