Expectant mama Busy Philipps was photographed on Wednesday (May 29). Dressed in a ruched maternity dress, Busy looked radiant in red at the Palihouse in West Hollywood, Calif.
In a new episode of The Conversation, the Cougar Town actress, who is expecting her second child with husband Marc Silverstein, shares her thoughts about body image, losing the baby weight and going bare down there.
“I love this question,” Busy said. “I do get waxed, but after I had my daughter I had this real epiphany. I felt like it would be really f–king weird if I had no hair on my vagina, because I have a little girl and I want her to look at me and think that grown women have hair on their vaginas!”
After welcoming her first child, daughter Birdie, in August 2008, Busy said it was not as easy losing the baby weight as some celebrities make it look.
“I love that the whole weird misconception, ‘I just lost it all breastfeeding.’ It’s like, ‘No, you didn’t!’” she said.
“I was asked to lose weight by a network for a TV pilot,” Busy said of her body even before baby. “The conversation happens because you get a job and your agent or manager calls and they say, ‘They are so excited about you. They just think there is no one better for this part and they want you to look and feel your best — they really feel that that could include losing 15 or 20 pounds.’”
She added: “You take a beat. I think I was a little crushed. I want to say that I was like 24 when that happened.”

“I feel like it’s the last frontier of feminism — the weight thing with women — even for myself.” she added. “I identify as a feminist. I have so many feminist beliefs — and then I’m so mean to myself about my body sometimes. Or I can be judgmental about other people for their bodies, and I don’t know how to get over it.”
