Olivia Wilde joined the scads of other celebrities taking the ALS ice bucket challenge, but put her own motherly spin on it.

“I've been ice bucketed, thanks to @DiannaAgron, @PanteraSarah, Ty Simpkins, and a few other punks. Motion picture to follow,” she tweeted over the weekend.

In the video, she said that she “couldn’t find any water, so I’m gonna use breast milk. Took me all night to make this.”

Wilde, as her fans know, advocates breast-feeding. She and fiance Jason Sudeikis had their first child, Otis, in April.

Before she dumped a bucket full of cold white liquid on her head, Wilde challenged Sen. Cory Booker, Gloria Steinem and “the artist currently known as Prince.”

Later, she tweeted: “Oh wait some of you thought that was really breast milk? Oh dear. Uh thank you? But my boobs aren't that generous. Haha.”
