Mila Kunis Shamed For Breastfeeding In Public

Posted on

One of the most controversial topics around is whether or not a mother should openly breastfeed in public. While many say yes, others say no.

Mila Kunis experienced her own backlash when she breastfed in public, but it didn’t let the star feel down about it. In an interview with Vanity Fair, she had quite a few things to say about the topic.

“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,” Kunis explained. “Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child. She’s hungry. I need to feed her whether it’s out of a bottle or out of my boob, no matter where I was.”

“It always made my husband and I feel a little weird,” she said. “It took us a little back 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.”

“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. But I respect the opinions on both sides,” Kunis told Vanity Fair. “If it’s not for you, don’t look.”

Kunis is now expecting her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher.
