Mendes, appearing on the The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday to promote her New York & Company line, opened up about her life as a new mom, naming her daughter and how she feels about the pressure on women in Hollywood to “bounce back” after having a baby.
“I feel like we can be really hard on each other,” the 41 year old said when asked about losing baby weight. “That whole term ‘bounce back’ after pregnancy … I don’t like that terminology.”
She adds, “Look, if you go into the bikini two weeks after, good for you, but that wasn’t me. I just feel like we as women need to support each other more.”
