Even when Kunis was pregnant the first time around, she made jaws drop when she appeared on the red carpet for the premiere of her film, Jupiter Ascending, back in 2015.

She even mentioned that she believes her body is even better now even before she had kids. "But I think I have a better body now than before I had kids.

Barrymore was definitely not on board with the whole bounce back trend after having both of her kids.

Fischer also added, "It's such a weird thing that after having a baby, you're supposed to look like you've never had a baby. Well, I'm proud that I had a baby!

"Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body — meaning that it wasn't put on the earth to look good in a swimsuit," she said adding, "I was like, 'Look, I can carry a baby! I'm gaining weight right, everything's going well.'" Losing weight was definitely not Amy Adams' number one priority.

In an interview with Elle magazine, Bell called the baby weight conversation a "stale topic" and also blatantly said, "Who really cares? Just be healthy, don't beat yourself up, and have fun with your kid. The only way pressure is lifted is if we choose not to accept it any longer. I think that's what I did."
