Jillian Michaels is upset…she says she was misquoted about her not wanting to have children because sheÂ didn’tÂ want to ruin herÂ body! Michaels claims to have never said that…and she is “Heartbroken” over those claims.
Jillian spoke with Access Hollywood,
â€œThe Biggest Loserâ€ trainer is angry that she was mistakenly quoted as having told the May 2010 issue of Womenâ€™s Health that she wants children, but didnâ€™t plan to get pregnant because it would â€œruinâ€ her body.
â€œI never ever said that,â€ Jillian told AccessHollywood.comâ€™s Laura Saltman as she promoted her new show, â€œLosing It With Jillian,â€ as part of NBCâ€™s Summer Press Day on Monday in Pasadena.
â€œThe word â€˜wonâ€™tâ€™ and the word â€˜ruinâ€™ are not even in the article,â€ Jillian said emphatically. â€œItâ€™s amazing, everybodyâ€™s asking about this and Iâ€™m like, â€˜Did you read the article?â€™ â€˜No I didnâ€™t read the article.â€™â€
What Jillian did tell the magazine about pregnancy is: â€œIâ€™m going to adopt,â€ and, â€œI canâ€™t handle doing that to my body.â€
The trainer added she is shocked by the publicâ€™s reaction considering she was misquoted.
â€œI canâ€™t understand how people can judge or question something that they havenâ€™t even bothered to find out if itâ€™s real or not,â€ she told Laura.
When asked to set the record straight, Jillian said her comments were too complex to get into during the press day.
â€œItâ€™s more complicated, way more complicated than that and again, thatâ€™s not what Iâ€™m here to do today, but I used the word â€˜canâ€™tâ€™ and I used the word â€˜handle,â€™â€ she said. â€œâ€˜Handleâ€™ is not â€˜ruinâ€™ and â€˜canâ€™tâ€™ is not â€˜wonâ€™t.â€™
â€â€˜Wonâ€™tâ€™ is a choice,â€ Jillian continued.
Jillian added that the controversy has affected the pint-sized trainer deeply.
â€œIâ€™m disappointed about the way that my words have been twisted by the media. â€˜Heartbrokenâ€™ is actually more the word Iâ€™m looking for,â€ she said. â€œI support all women in any and every endeavor they choose and I wish that they would do the same for me.â€
