"Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child."
Even Mila Kunis wasn’t spared from being shamed for breastfeeding in public. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 32-year-old actress talked about her experiences:
“…I did nurse my child and I literally breastfed everywhere. 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. I need to feed her whether it’s out of a bottle or out of my boob no matter where I was.”
“Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child.”
When Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher encountered negative reactions towards Kunis’ public breastfeeding, they could only be perplexed.
“It always made my husband and I feel a little weird. 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.”
