Breaking: Ricki Lake Shrinks!

We’ve got nothing but love for Ricki Lake, so we have to give a shout-out to the Hairspray star for quashing her chubby demons.

The 38-year old actress flaunts her new look in this week’s Us, telling the tab-rag:

For the longest time, when I was very heavy, I couldn’t cross my legs. I couldn’t physically do it. LOVE that I can cross my legs now…

Speaking of not closing one’s legs, Lake also chats with Us about her new baby-centric documentary, The Business of Being Born.

We may love her, but we suspect hordes of postpartum mama’s are shaking their fists at her banging body. Better watch out, Lake, those bitches get mean.
