Reese Witherspoon Is Being Asked Dumb Babyweight Questions, NatchS

Aw, man. I like Reese Witherspoon just fine, but it's a world-class bummer when actresses say "health" and mean "weight." Having just given birth to son Tennessee James, she addressed someone's question about the Amazing Race to drop her baby weight. "I don't know if I'm bouncing back. I'm slowly crawling back.

Sure, there's health, which tabloids generally give 0.00 shits about, and then there's "health" or "healthy-looking" (synonyms: svelte, slender, athletic), which actually sells papers. Especially the obsessive weight-monitoring of anyone who recently slid a child out of their Wonder Orchid. [Us Weekly]
