The star told that she faced public shaming when she "literally breastfed everywhere" with her daughter Wyatt, now 21 months.

"There were many times where I didn't bring a cover with me," said the 32-year-old, who's currently expecting her second child with her husband Ashton Kutcher. "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."

But not everyone was comfortable with her actions.

"It always made my husband and I feel a little weird," the LA-based actress 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."

Mila blames the shunning on society's constant fetishizing of the female body.

"I think it's unfortunate that people are so hard on women who choose to do it and do it in public," she said. "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."

Her advice to critics: "If it's not for you, don't look."
