Gayheart is a Monkey
Though Gayheart's star is on the rise thanks to her role in this fall's ABC drama Wasteland, the former Noxema girl has the occasional fantasy of trading in celebrity for maternity. She says that while holding a friend's baby she thought "Man, what am I doing? I could give it all up for this." In the latest version of that dream, Gayheart leaves Hollywood happy and pregnant. "I wanna get really fat and wear big baggy clothes. I don't want to worry about looking cute when I'm pregnant. I just want to go there and get fat."
Until motherhood calls, Gayheart will shrug off the press and continue pursuing her goal "to always work with material I like, directors I like, and actors that I respect." One director she likes but won't work with right away is fiancè Brett Ratner. "I'm sure we will work together," Gayheart explains. "I just think we should wait until we're older. I'll be 50, at least."— John Aboud TVguide.com.
