Molly Sims Was “Jealous” of Claire Danes’ Post-Baby Body

Claire Danes and other celebs may shed baby weight like it’s nothing, but some don’t!

Speaking to reporters on Jan. 24 at the Elle Women in Television event in West Hollywood, Molly Sims spoke candidly about her postpartum weight loss struggles following the June 19, 2012 birth of her son, Brooks Alan:

“I’m still about ten pounds away and my baby is seven months. And I look at Claire Danes at the Globes and I’m like, I hate you.”

When Us Weekly pointed out that Danes credited Spanx for her svelte post-baby look at the Globes, Sims, who’s married to film producer Scott Stuber, quipped, “Sweetie, that ain’t Spanx. I’ve got Spanx on. That ain’t Spanx.”

Count your blessings, Miss Sims!  You’ve done a lot- acting, modeling, designing…and now parenting. The 39-year-old mom has a bit of a right to be frustrated, though: she revealed she gained almost 65 pounds during her pregnancy because of a thyroid condition.

“My thyroid kind of shut down, so that really made it very difficult in terms of the weight loss.”

Now on a natural thyroid medicine, she’s ten pounds from her goal weight, and restricting her diet as well as working with personal trainer Tracy Anderson.  Like many moms, losing the weight is really hard. I mean, I don’t know personally, but it has to be- mothers’ bodies go through so many changes. Still, it’s important to appreciate what you DO have, am I right?

Claire Danes: “I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom.”

An 8-months-pregnant Claire Danes glows on the cover of ELLE February, on newsstands nationwide January 15th. In the issue, she opens up about being a working mother, her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy, and even meeting President Obama.

On waiting to have children:

“I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it…I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus…that I wanted to act.”

On her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy:

“Hugh was just the right partner for me. I got very, very lucky. There’s only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship – that is central to both our lives – but at the same time, it’s just this kind of ease that I can’t really account for.”

On meeting President Obama (a fan of Homeland) with her husband Hugh at the White House Correspondent’s dinner:

“Hugh was like, ‘We have to meet Obama,’ and we walked over before we could think and found ourselves shaking hands with him.  Hugh realized that he’d forgotten to actually properly introduce himself, and [President Obama] was like, ‘And you are?’ And Hugh was like, ‘I’m sorry, Mr. President.’  I said, ‘I’m Claire Danes,’ and he said, ‘Oh, you’re a fine actress.’ And I said, ‘You’re a fine president!’  And he said, ‘Oh, you’re a finer actress than I am president.’ I didn’t have any retort.  Hugh and I went immediately to the bar and had a big shot of vodka.”

On teenagers growing up in Hollywood today:

“When I was younger, I was a little bit more restless, but there weren’t as many eyes. There weren’t as many tabloids or the number of cameras that everyone’s armed with. I feel huge sympathy for teenagers who have suddenly found themselves as public figures now, because it just sucks for them.”

Since the interview, 33-year-old Claire gave birth to her first child, son Cyrus Michael Christopher.

Claire Danes is a mom!

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are first-time parents!

The ‘Homeland’ actress, 33, and her actor husband, welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on Monday, December 17. They named their boy Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy.

Since confirming her pregnancy in July, Danes has stayed mostly mum on the subject of baby — including keeping the sex a secret — but tells PEOPLE in its new year-end double issue that she looks forward to “getting to know our new Dancy” over the break.

Danes, who won an Emmy in September for her role as bipolar CIA-agent Carrie Matheson on the hit Showtime drama, wed Dancy, 37, in a private ceremony in France in 2009.

Love them, they’re so cute!!

Claire Danes covers Flare Magazine, opens up about playing a bi-polar person on ‘Homeland’

FLARE Magazine, celebrates Emmy-winner and expectant mother Claire Danes on their November cover. Danes wears a Celine cuff and Sydney Evans earrings on the cover; inside, she models a purple coat by Versace. In FLARE’s exclusive interview, the actor reflects on growing up famous, her Emmy-winning role, and the reality of bi-polar disorder.

On child stardom: “I was pretty clear about what I did and didn’t want to do, even as a kid. People dismiss kids as being unthinking; they’re surprisingly discerning. I wanted to be taken seriously from the outset.”

On transitioning from romantic leads to bi-polar F.B.I. agent Carrie Mathison: “It’s arguable that being in love and being mentally ill are sort of similar [laughs]. But it’s true I went through this arduous decade and it did get a bit tiresome after awhile—you want to be defined in some other way.”

On the reality of bi-polar disorder: “Carrie’s disease is formidable, it’s furious, but it’s also treatable and every case is individual. I think the show offers a pretty good reflection of what that experience is like.”

On her reputation as a serious actor: “I actually want people to imagine me as being a little less serious sometimes. But people get attached to certain characters and perceptions.”

PICS: 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!

There were so many beautiful women at last night’s 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. ‘Mad Men’ and ‘American Horror Story’ led the race with 17 nominations each, but it was the casts of ‘Modern Family’, ‘Homeland’, and ‘Game Change’ that came away the big winners.

Here’s more on the awards ceremony from People:

Eric Stonestreet took home the first award of the night for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. In a repeat of last year’s early Emmys sweep for the series, Julie Bowen took home the best supporting actress award, marking her second consecutive win in the category, followed by the show’s co-creator Steve Levitan winning the Emmy for outstanding comedy direction. The cast closed out the evening the same way it began, with another win, this time for outstanding comedy series.

Newcomer Homeland had an incredible night following the show’s debut season. The Showtime series’ star Damian Lewis won the Emmy for the lead actor in a drama series – while his pregnant costar Claire Danes scooped up the best actress award. Homeland also took home the Emmys for outstanding writing and outstanding drama series.

After playing Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, Julianne Moore won her first Primetime Emmy for lead actress in a miniseries or movie. “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” she said as she accepted her award. The political film – which won four awards total – also took home honors for outstanding writing, outstanding directing and outstanding miniseries or movie.

Two and Half Men‘s Jon Cryer won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy. “Don’t panic people, something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I am stunned, I didn’t actually win this – this did not just happen!” Cryer said, addressing his fellow nominees Don Cheadle, Louis C.K., Jim Parsons, Larry David and Alec Baldwin. Meanwhile, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy.

Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul was stunned as he accepted his Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series. “I cannot believe I’m standing on this stage, let alone in this room,” he said. But before stepping down from the stage, the actor thanked his fiancée Lauren Parsekian. “You saved me,” he said.

Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, beating out Archie Panjabi, Anna Gunn, Joanne Froggatt, Christina Hendricks and Christine Baranksi, but wasn’t present to accept.

While accepting the Emmy for outstanding variety series, Jon Stewart earned first-to-get-bleeped honors after winning his 10th consecutive Emmy for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

And Jessica Lange stunned in red as she accepted the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie for her role as Constance Langdon in American Horror Story, while Kevin Costner took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in the same category for his role in Hatfields and McCoys.

I’ll be posting pictures from the red carpet, and here are the people I’ll be posting pictures of. Who was your best dressed from last night?
