Olivia Wilde is wearing motherhood well and adapting to it even better.

The "Lazarus" actress said that she has a whole new set of priorities ever since her 6-month-old son, Otis, was born.

"The amazing thing about being becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority," she said. "The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to and I think that's really freeing."

Freeing, yes, but motherhood also comes with a different kid of pressure. Speaking at the IWMF Courage in Journalism Awards, Olivia said that since motherhood, she's now more concerned with social responsibility and leaving the world a better place for her child.

"I just think it makes you feel more responsibility for the world and your actions within it," she said. "Whereas before I wanted to be a social activist because I cared about the world in general, now I feel like I have more of a pointed center for that -- a passion to make the world better for Otis and any more kids out there."

Though she mainly kept her cards close to the vest about her son, she did reveal that he is nearly sleeping through the night now.

"We're getting there. It's great," she said. "He's amazing. He's amazing in every way. He's a very sweet person."
