'Lost' actress Evangeline Lilly believes people need to stop having babies to ''protect'' planet Earth because the world is over-populated
Evangeline Lilly thinks people have to stop having babies to save the planet.
The actress - who is been dating her co-star Dominic Monaghan since they met on the set of 'Lost' in 2004 - believes people are procreating at an alarming rate and must slow down their baby-making or adopt to "protect" the Earth.
She said: "For a very long time, I have had intentions to adopt. We have a huge population problem on Earth. We're not going to protect the Earth the way we need to protect it if we don't stop making so many babies."
Despite her views on adoption, the 30-year-old beauty is desperate to experience the "gift" of pregnancy and will "allow" herself one baby of her own.
Evangeline - who plays fugitive Kate Austen in 'Lost' - said: "I have always wanted to have a child of my own and I will always want to go through the gift that women have been given to experience that, so I hope to be a mother at some point. I think I can allow myself one child - and from then on, I think I would have to adopt. It makes sense not to add to the population problem."
'Lost' season five is available on DVD in the UK now.
