Alicia Silverstone became the talk of the internet a few weeks ago when she posted a video showing her method of feeding her 11-month-old son Bear Blu -- mouth-to-mouth, much like a bird. Well the actress is finally speaking out on the controversy, and she doesn't think it's a big deal.
The 35-year-old commented on the subject during a Q&A with director Amy Heckerling after a screening of "Clueless" and their upcoming film "Vamps" at the Brooklyn Academy of Art and Music over the weekend.
"People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years. It's a weaning process," she said. "Honestly, when I posted the video I was not thinking, so maybe I was like Cher (her ditzy character from "Clueless")! I think it's adorable and it makes me laugh every time he does it."
She continued, "He attacks my mouth and I think it's adorable. He also knows how to use his hands and he also eats regular food so when babies are weaning, he still breastfeeds. Some people think that's disgusting too which is insane."
