Olivia Wilde appeared in the pages of the September 2014 issue of Glamour magazine breastfeeding her son Otis. Of the picture, she revealed to the publication, “Usually he has a diaper on and I’ve never looked that good breastfeeding. I never will.”
She continued, “It’s funny, that picture grew out of a very organic moment. I was working, I was shooting the cover of Glamour, and I needed to feed my son Otis.”
Apparently the picture drew some backlash for the Hollywood actress, but she said that the reaction to the photo was completely disproportionate. She revealed, “I was shocked that there were still people who find it inappropriate because they think it’s a sexual thing. I think that says a lot about them.”
Still, she wants another baby soon! She said, “He came two weeks earlier than expected – an extreme adventure that is definitely not for the faint of heart. That day was wild, but weirdly I can’t wait to do it again. I loved being pregnant. I felt unapologetically curvy, sexy and intensely feminine. My experience was great, largely because I stayed strong throughout. Pilates became a healthy habit, which helped me avoid common pregnancy woes like sciatica.”
She added, “I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot.”
