Reality Check: Felicity Huffman Eats Muffins

Her show, Desperate Housewives, may be full of melodrama, but Felicity Huffman is refreshingly down to earth. The 45-year-old star appears on the September cover of More magazine, looking fabulous and speaking frankly about her fitness habits and finding a healthy balance.


I particularly like what she had to say about finding a personal trainer with a realistic attitude:

"I've had a lot of trainers through the years, and they’re always like, 'Oh my god, you ate a muffin?' and 'What do you mean you weigh 125? You can’t shoot at that weight.' [Kirsten Holtgreen is] the first trainer who's said, 'You’re not eating enough.'"

To see what else Huffman had to say about maintaining a healthy weight and wearing Madonna's underwear,

.

On struggling with weight: "I'd take a vacation, and if I was heavy, it was a bad vacation, and if I was light—or, you know, lighter—it was a good vacation."

On gaining acceptance: “For some reason, after giving birth—which is when you look like a bag of doorknobs—I actually looked at myself in the mirror and went, ‘I look beautiful!’ I don’t know why, but that sort of tipped it for me."

Another funny tidbit from the article: In 1988 Huffman took over Madonna's role in a David Mamet play on Broadway. She found the material girl's thong in her dressing room and decided to try it on: "I was like, 'This is Madonna’s underwear!' Of course, it didn’t fit me." She may not wear Madonna's size, but both stars are extremely fit and fabulous!
