Olivia Wilde continues her journey to the top of our dream celebrity best friend list with her interview in the September issue of Glamour. Not only is the actress pictured breastfeeding her son, Otis, she gets extremely candid about her first marriage, career regrets, and incorporating her new role as a mother into her identity.
"Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn't complete without my identity as a mother being party of that," Wilde tells Glamour about her decision to include her son in the profile. "I don't know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing — that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed."
