The 38-year-old actress is expecting her second child with husband Will Kopelman and even though her doctor has urged her to "pull back", she insists she will carry on eating whatever she wants.
She said: "I just eat everything I want, which isn't healthy. I'm bigger this time than my first time. My doctor the other day was like, 'Yeah, so I think maybe pull back. A little bit.'
"I was like, really? I thought I was doing great. I still fit into those jeans - they hurt when I wear them -- but I still fit into them. I don't ever pose, 'I'm just so fabulous and I lose it like that.' I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What's 10 lbs?"
And when talk show host Ellen DeGeneres urged her to continue eating what she wants and joked the actress will get "fatter" as her pregnancy progresses, she replied: "It's true! I'm not done. I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow and I'm going to tell her you said that."
The 'Charlie's Angels' actress also spoke of her pride in "bright" daughter Olive, 15 months.
She said: "She can do every animal noise -- we're up to 26 animals. It's amazing!
"Camel is her favourite and crocodile and snake. She does it all -- I'm telling you, she's bright!"
