True Story: I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant (For 6 Months)

The moment that changed my life was actually pretty anticlimactic. I took a pregnancy test. Waited the prescribed amount of time. Looked at the result.

Jemima Kirke Is An Artist Not An Actor, Shows Her Boobs And Preggo Belly (NSFW)

"Acting is secondary—I don’t feel like it’s going to stick around because it’s not something I want to do forever. My art has always been my top priority and I have far more experience in that field than I do in film. It’s hard to explain without sounding like a dick. I’m not that person.
