With a one-year-old daughter and another baby on the way, Mila Kunis has come to learn a lot about motherhood. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the star opened up about her opinions towards public breastfeeding as well as her personal experiences.
"I support every woman’s choice in what she wants to do and whatever makes them happy, but for me, I did nurse my child and I literally breastfed everywhere," shared Mila.
"There were many times where I didn’t bring a cover with me, and so I just did it in a restaurant, in the subway, in the park, at airports, and in planes. Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child. She’s hungry,” she explained.
While the actress was open to feeding her child in public she did admit it made her feel “a little weird.” She explained it took them bit a little “because people actually looked at us in a shameful [way], and we were like, ‘Oh my God,’ because it’s so not a sexual act. It didn’t matter to me what other people thought. That’s what I chose to do, but I think it’s unfortunate that people are so hard on women who choose to do it and do it in public. In the States and in our culture, we sexualize the breast so much that there’s an aspect of it that people just don’t know how to wrap their head around the idea of showing your breast in public.”
Mila did go on to acknowledge both sides of the debate by saying, "I respect the opinions on both sides. If it’s not for you, don’t look."
