Emma Thompson Picks Her Battles

When it comes to motherhood, Emma Thompson relies on some tried-and-true words of wisdom: Pick your battles.

“With Gaia, I make sure that the boundaries are reasonable,” she tells the UK’s The Daily Mail of her 10-year-old daughter. “I only fight the battles I really think have to be fought. Some of the battles I will lose on purpose, so that she gets a sense of power over her own existence.”

Emma admits this philosophy has had some unexpected consequences.

“One of the battles I have let her win is allowing her to have a pair of high heels,” the Nanny McPhee star confesses. “I thought, you know, I am not going to push this. I can’t walk in high heels, but actually I would like her to be able to walk in heels because they look nice. And she loves them. I loved them when I was little. If I had been allowed to have high heels I would have been so happy, but no. So she has a little pair of high heels.”

    Jennifer Lopez: I “Didn’t Care” About “Flabby Belly”

    Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of Us and opens up about losing the weight after welcoming twins Max and Emme with husband Marc Anthony in February 2008.

    I remember my flabby belly hanging out right after I gave birth,” Lopez, 40, says. “I kind of laughed and said to Marc, ‘Look, baby! Isn’t this crazy?’ I just didn’t care.”

    In hindsight, J.Lo admits that she feels differently about that “belly.” She says, “I look back at pictures from that time, and I’m like ‘Oh, god, I was fat. I was still heavy eight months out!'”

    It was her two kids who inspired Lopez to shed 50 pounds. “You get to the point where you’re like, Where am I? What happened to me? I got to get myself together for my kids, you know? They need to know what I really look like.”

    The Back-Up Plan star she’s “back to the size I was before I had the babies,” although her “rib cage” shifted while carrying the twins. “Before I was always able to fit into sample-size clothes from designers, and now they have to take them out just a bit…It’s no big deal.”
