Olivia Wilde: Breast-feeding photo ‘grew out of an organic moment’

Olivia Wilde recently made waves with a photo in Glamour magazine that showed her all glammed-up and breast-feeding. While we were beyond jealous of how gorgeous she looked, she readily admits that that’s not the norm for her. Phew! Watch what she has to say about how the photo shoot went down, and why she named her son Otis. 

"I was working, I was shooting the cover of Glamour, and I needed to feed my son Otis... either I was going to do it off-camera or on, and I thought, 'You know what, shoot it, because this is part of my real life," Wilde told Savannah Guthrie, who is planning to go out on maternity leave Tuesday. "But no, usually he has a diaper on and I've never looked that good breast-feeding."

The busy mom has also been helping promote the Global Citizen Festival, a concert thrown by the Global Poverty Project, which aims to end extreme poverty by 2030. Get more information on how to get involved!
