Catherine Zeta Jones was pregnant while filing Traffic and there was mention of her pregnancy in the movie.

 

 


I knew who she was right away and I also noticed the baby bump right away too. Love her in the Toyota commercials. Hubby and I remember following her 1st pregnany in the Toyota commercials several years ago.

 

And you nor anyone else has to care if you’re not familiar with these commercials. But for those of us that see these ongoing commericials with her do like her and are just making small talk.

I don't think I've ever seen Toyota Jan. 

 

I know there have been soap opera stars who are pregnant in real life and their pregnancy is written into their storyline.

I haven't read entire thread so maybe someone has mentioned Katherine Erbe of Law and Order Criminal Intent.  The story line was she was acting as a surrogate for her sister.

Kerry Washington was pregnant on Scandal, but not in the storyline. They kept hiding it behind furniture, oversized coats, and giant Prada bags. At a certain point it became very funny.

@bootsannewrote:

I never knew she was the spokeswoman,. but did notice how nice she looked.  I just hope, and this is only my own opinion, that when she's 7-9 months along, they don't have her wrapped in spandex.


She’s not a spokeswoman.  She’s just the actress that plays the part of the receptionist.

“ Grace” was visibly pregnant on the show. Others were mentioning actresses on shows that were pregnant if you read the whole thread

Re: Toyota Jan has a Baby Bump!

I know it's very common to write an actress' real-life pregnancy into a tv script, although other times they can't. (Think Everybody Loves Raymond, where they already had 3 kids, lol). They had to try to conceal Patricia Heaton's pregnancies.

 

But with commercials, l can't think of any other instances where the actress is pregnant in the commercial, unless it has something to do with selling baby items. I think Toyota's is a good idea, though. It makes the actress seem like she's an everyday person.

Re: Toyota Jan has a Baby Bump!

She's great in that role, isn't she @sidsmom

 

This thread also answered a long-standing question I had as to how regional car commercials actually are.  Pretty much so, it seems.
