A Cut reporter caught up with celebrity trainer and Gwyneth bestie Tracy Anderson at an Us Weekly event last night and got Anderson to spill her thoughts on a few famous and scrutinized celebrity bodies. Of tabloid fave Kim Kardashian and her post-pregnancy figure, Anderson said, "She's just taking time with the baby. She's not concerned with working out or anything. Amazing. So connected."
As it turns out, Anderson is a major Girls fan and is training a few actresses on set, though she doesn't mention any by name (er, didn't Marnie just get "teeny tiny?"). She's not allowed to slim down Lena Dunham, per producer requests, though you can tell she's just dying to. "I send trainers to the set," she said to The Cut. "But I will tell you that [Lena]'s not allowed to transform her body right now. [Girls] producer Jenni Konner is a diehard client of mine and a dear friend, so we joke, and she says, 'You can't transform her yet.'" Because that would make for an entirely different show, and would probably kill all those think pieces about Lena Dunham's comfort with her figure.
