I have Uma Thurman’s belly

I just came across this today, and even though it’s just celebrity trash, I found it very, very comforting.
When Stars Have Bad Days

Wow, Uma Thurman has the same belly as me! That’s awesome. The creepy part is that all the tabloids were like, “What’s in her belly? Is she pregnant? Does she have a tumor?” Um, no. She has had two kids, same as me. Looks like she blew out the muscles around her belly button by carrying two big kids. Periumbilical hernia.
I actually have good core strength now, but man, if I turn sideways and bend over like Uma, I look exactly the same. What a relief.
