    Mila Kunis Says That She And Ashton Felt "Shamed" For Breastfeeding Her Daughter In Public

    "If it's not for you, don't look."

    Mila Kunis — she really is the best, isn't she?

    The new-ish mom shut down shamers after talking about the less-than-pleasant looks she and her husband Ashton Kutcher would receive while breastfeeding her daughter Wyatt in public.

    And DAYUM, did she do it well.

    “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," she told Vanity Fair.

    “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.”

    Mila went on to explain how shocked she and Ashton were after getting such negative reactions:

    “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."

    "It didn’t matter to me what other people thought," she continued. "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. But I respect the opinions on both sides. If it’s not for you, don’t look.”

    And that, ladies and gentleman, is how you do it.
