>• She’s got a new baby, steamy scenes with Ashton Kutcher in the film Spread and a role as a high-strung ex on HBO’s Hung.

YOU’RE IN GREAT SHAPE IN SPREAD. I had to be in bathing suits so I focused on sit-ups. Ashton was always teasing me about whose stomach was flatter. I wanted my body to reflect what women are obsessed with in L.A.: youth and being fit.

THEN YOU GOT PREGNANT AND GAVE BIRTH TO ATLAS IN MARCH. HOW’S HE? A real bundle of joy. He’s so easy I can’t believe it. He cracks a smile every time he opens his eyes.

DOES HOMER, 7, LIKE BEING A BIG BROTHER? He really likes it! It took him a little bit; it’s hard to share attention. But he found his stride and he’s very protective now.

HOW ARE YOU AND YOUR BEAU JAMES TUPPER ADAPTING? He’s a wonderful dad and I think I’m calmer than I was the first time. [Homer] is incredible so I’m not so panicked about doing [everything] right.

YOU FILMED HUNG EIGHT DAYS AFTER GIVING BIRTH! HOW? The camerawoman helps. The costumes … Everyone works with me on my TV body!
