'Cougar Town' Nicole Sullivan: 'Stars lie about losing baby weight'

By
Cougar Town star Nicole Sullivan has complained about the pressure to lose baby weight.

The comedian, who has two children, admitted that she felt devastated when she was unable to shed the pounds from her first pregnancy as quickly as other famous faces.

"I would flip through celeb magazines... and I just couldn't get how these mums like Jessica Alba lost so much weight so quickly, and yet I couldn't," she told Us Weekly.

"They all lie and say, 'Oh, I lost the weight running after the kids or breastfeeding'. It's not true!"

Sullivan added: "I felt broken. I felt like an outsider in my own community. There just are not a lot of overweight people in Hollywood. I felt like the jerk who couldn't figure it out."

The actress - who works as a brand ambassador for slimming company Jenny Craig - admitted that she enjoyed her second pregnancy much more as she didn't feel as much pressure to focus on her weight.

"When I look back to when I had my first son, I was unhappy," she said. "I couldn't understand why the weight wasn't just falling off. I wish I could have that time back. With my second son, I enjoyed the whole process of him being an infant more because I wasn't mad at myself.

"When you are mad at yourself, you are mad at everybody. That's the problem... I may not look like [Alba], but at least I can keep up with other actresses now. I feel really good about myself."

Claire Danes and Kourtney Kardashian are among the stars who have recently spoken out about losing their baby weight.
