In August 2021, Alison Sweeney met General Hospital star, Maurice Benard for an episode of his State of Mind series. At the time, she spoke candidly about her time in Hollywood and the body shaming challenges she faced due to her weight gain physique. The actress revealed,
It was hard to get work. Then there was the whole being on daytime thing, and then I started to become really aware of body image and that I didn't look like the typical actress.
The former Days of Our Lives actress even admitted that she occasionally received harsh remarks from casting directors and producers. She recalled, "I auditioned for a really popular nighttime soap opera in the '90s or early 2000s, and they told my agent, 'Send her back when she's lost 20 pounds.'" Later, she went on to discuss how it felt to be examined for her body, admitting that it hurt her mental health. She explained,
I remember there was this phase of the low-fat diet — fake cookies or baked things. I would go home and be so upset that I would an entire box of low-fat cookies. It was just crushing. It really is demoralizing.
But over time, Alison Sweeney claimed she overcame her critics and found a path to happiness and health that made sense for her. Although she now appears to have undergone weight gain once again, we believe she has been improving her general health by following her regular physical activity and nutritious eating habits.
Alison Sweeney Disclosed the Inspiration for Hallmark’s Austen Flick!
Alison Sweeney starred in her 28th Hallmark movie, Love & Jane, on February 10 as part of a month-long tribute to legendary novelist, Jane Austen. In the film, she plays Lilly, an Austen fan. According to her, “She’s a modern working woman, but she dresses in a romantic way and she speaks in an old-fashioned way based on her love of these books.” She continued,
She has boyfriend trouble and wishes Jane Austen were there to give her good advice, and when she wakes up the next morning, lo and behold, Jane Austen is in her living room. It’s really fun the way the story unfolds from there.

Furthermore, Alison Sweeney values the project's message the most, saying, “Lilly meets her true love [Trevor, played by Benjamin Ayres] and gets advice from Jane on that, but what I really love about the story is that Jane’s advice is really more about Lilly needing to work on herself and care about who she is, rather than catching a guy.”
