41-year-old Selma Blair, who's mom to adorable Arthur Saint, 2, tells Cosmopolitan Magazine that she can't seem to lose her baby weight. Why? Because she loves to eat!

Cosmo had the chance to interview the former Anger Management star during New York Fashion Week; she was at the Christian Siriano Spring 2014 fashion show, Saturday, looking smashing in a tight blue leather dress. She even told the mag she ate a massive meal before the show.

"This is why I can't lose my baby weight," she said, "because I ate crepes, I ate French toast, I ate an ice cream cone, I had french fries, and three hamburgers! Then I'm going to go and have a full dinner with my son. Then I'll go out again tonight."

Ha, that's definitely massive meal by anyone's standards! Selma blames her insatiable hunger — "really always hungry" — for all the extra grub she's been taking in. "It's terrible and I don't like what it does to my body, believe me," she confessed, "because I'm not one of these people that's like, I can eat whatever I want, whenever."


To hide the added weight she feels she put on, she was strategic with the leather dress — "a tight leather dress to keep all those hamburgers in . . . !"

"Momma likes to eat," she added. "Momma is in no rush to look beautiful anytime soon."

Well, that's refreshing! Of course, Selma looks great.... And of course, lots of models and actresses love to brag about eating hamburgers (I'm looking at you, Heidi Klum). You never really know what their deal is. It's almost better when they say they really work hard to look slim.

Anyway, it took me five years to lose my pregnancy weight. So, I say, no rush!
