Mom-to-be Olivia Wilde covers the May 2014 cover of Lucky and opens up about her pregnancy and embracing her growing baby bump.

On embracing her pregnancy: “I just thought, Oh I’m going to hide this forever. But I ended up getting kind of excited to show the bump, as a badge of pride. Like I’m a woman! Look at me making a human! I am a goddess! Pregnancy does shed away all of the bullsh*t. It gives you more empathy because you look at everyone and you think, ‘You were a baby!’ Pregnancy brings you into this sort of commune—you feel connected to women in a way that you never have.”

On her changing body during pregnancy: “I’m like, double D, hello! I’ve never been in this section of the bra store! I’ve been flat-chested my whole life, so it’s a wonderful new world.”

On her teenage “tomboy chic” style: “Eva Longoria always looks so put-together and goddamned adorable. But I can’t imagine walking everywhere in those heels. She goes to the Laundromat with them on! I just don’t have it in me. My style is never uncomfortable… it’s part of my nature to look a little messy.”

On her ideal role: “Playing the ideal girl is much harder for me than the basket-case mess. Now when I look at roles, if it says, ‘In walks in the femme fatale, the epitome of perfection and desire,’ I say, ‘No, that’s not going to work.’ I’m not interested unless she turns out to be psychotic and murders everyone in the room. I’d rather be Ursula than the Little Mermaid.”
