Why Vera Farmiga Rushed Back To Work After Having Her Baby

By Sunny Chanel |

Vera FarmigaHow long do you think a new mom should wait before she heads back to work ? After having a baby should a mom take 6 months, 3 months, or even 2 months? How about 2 weeks.  Yeah, that would be pretty crazy but that’s exactly what the Academy Award nominated actress Vera Farmiga did after the birth of her boy Fynn. Why did she rush back to work

Vera had already been cast in the feature film Up in The Air when she announced she was knocked up. During her pregnancy she frequently met with the executives  and felt that “the studio was panicking”. She said that, “I felt that, and it destroyed me. I wanted to walk away from this career. I felt incredibly insecure.” But she was determined to prove them wrong and that she could do the job she signed on for. She came to the set ready to work just two weeks after her baby was born.

Her performance in the film is critically acclaimed and she’s been nominated for numerous awards as well as the Oscar. But she said that the ‘acclaim is bittersweet’. She sadly stated that, “I could never reclaim these first precious moments of maternity. [But] I needed to pay my mortgage. It wasn’t an option. I had to do the role.”
