“I appreciate the attention but I don’t think of myself as particularly attractive at all. I also don’t have that naturally sexual or sensuous way of behaving that some women have. I do have a pretty sharp sense of humor, though, and I think that has helped me … I’m much more conservative by nature than people think … I mean, I don’t send out naked photos of myself or climb out of limousines without any panties … Some women rely on their looks to make it and others know that they need to work hard to not just be treated as a pretty object and have a serious career. So I’ve never bought into my own beauty myth and I have always worked hard and believed in myself as an actress in order to get where I am.”
– Mila Kunis on her beauty. Hmm. I am torn about what she says here. On the one hand, I appreciate the sentiment of not buying into one’s own beauty myth. Looking at it through a feminist lens, Mila is talking about remaining a subject in her own life and career and refusing to be objectified. Which is smart, humble and noble. But on the other hand, saying that you are not “particularly attractive” or “naturally sensuous” seems very limiting. Not to mention sad. You don’t have to be a sex object or send naked pictures of your vagina to think you’re attractive or sensual. And doesn’t ever woman deserve to feel that way without feeling objectified? Just a thought. [Metro UK] Keep reading »
“Extra’s” Ben Lyons caught up with actress Mila Kunis at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas, where she cleared up pesky rumors she’s dating her onetime “That ‘70s Show” castmate, Ashton Kutcher, after they were seen together multiple times in the last few weeks.
“It’s absurd!” said Mila. “A friend is a friend.” Read more…
I am generally involved in a passionate love affair with Mila Kunis’s wardrobe, both her decadent red carpet dresses (the lavender Elie Saab she wore for the 2011 Academy Awards was one of the most gorgeous things I have ever laid eyes on) and her low-key but chic off-duty ensembles. She has an amazing body and knows how to dress it in a way that manages to be simultaneously jaw-droppingly sexy and totally relatable, like Monica Bellucci with a copious dash of Meg Griffin — I wonder why? But when it comes to this look (all Phillip Lim with the exception of her Dior pumps) from yesterday’s CinemaCon, I’m ambivalent. For the record, I am firmly pro-formal shorts, even metallic ones, so that is not the issue here. I like almost everything about it: the boxy jacket and peachy nude blouse are spot-on, as are the shoes, but the waist of the shorts and the way the light catches the sheen of the fabric leave Mila looking lumpy in the midsection. I’m not saying she looks fat or anything like that at all, but literally lumpy and just unflattering. What do you think: am I being nitpicky? Do you love this look, or would you leave the shiny shorts at home? On Ashton Kutcher’s bedroom floor, perhaps?
The restricted trailer for “Ted,” Seth MacFarlane’s feature film directing debut, was released recently and damn, does it look ridiculous. Mark Wahlberg plays John, a man who lives with his childhood teddy bear brought to life, Ted (voiced by MacFarlane). When John falls in love with Lori (Mila Kunis), he’s forced to grow up. That otherwise basic, wacky premise is, of course, told through MacFarlane’s brand of raunchy, offensive humor — Ted smokes from a bong, John rattles off dozens of “white trash names” like lightening, etc. Personally, I can’t wait.
Last week, in the wake of Scarlett Johansson‘s nude pics being splashed across the interwebs, a hacker claimed that he had grabbed pics from Mila Kunis‘ phone. Said hacker claimed that the images showed Justin Timberlake shirtless in bed and with a pair of panties on his head. There was also allegedly a dick pic that the hacker hinted was Justin. We thought this sounded highly suspect as, if you have the photos, why not show them? Plus, while Justin and Mila co-starred in “Friends with Benefits” and are rumored to have gotten together, we think both of them would be way smarter than to snap pics if they hooked up.
Finally, Justin and Mila’s camps are speaking up on the issue. They say that the rumors of these photos are “entirely false.” Keep reading »
“It was absurd. There’s a fire, I get saved, and then I go boogie-boarding. I remember thinking, ‘Well, if I’m blind, how am I boogie-boarding?’ No one ever gave me an answer.”
—Mila Kunis talks about one of her choicest parts as a child actress, playing a blind girl who gets lost on an episode of “Baywatch,” opposite David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. Oh man, I remember this episode. Almost as well as I remember the episode of “Beverly Hills, 90210″ where Jessica Alba plays a teenage girl who leaves her baby on the doorstep of Kelly’s health clinic, or the episode of “Saved By The Bell” where Denise Richards is obsessed with AC Slater and fakes a drowning to get him to rescue her.

“I don’t think I ever fully realized what a human body is capable of doing. But I think I was also, in a beautiful way, incredibly naive. I believed that I could do anything. I never for one moment thought that I couldn’t do it. I believe in hard work. In self-drive and self-worth. I’m a huge foodie, I love food. But when people say, ‘I can’t lose weight’, no no no, you can. Your body can do everything and anything, you just have to want to do it.”
–Mila Kunis, on how she lost weight for “Black Swan.” Kunis also previously said that she was freaked out by the intense weight loss she experienced while training for “Swan.” In November 2010, she said, “It was the most intense training I’ve ever had in my life, and probably will have for anything. I lost 20 pounds, so I went down to 95 pounds. I weigh 117 usually, like today. I looked like Gollum.” She further went on to criticize Hollywood for perpetuating such unrealistic images of beauty. “I could see why this industry is so f*cked up, because … I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I had no shape, no boobs, no ass … all you saw was the bone. I was like, ‘This looks gross.’ Man, it took me five months to lose 20 pounds, but it took me just five days — days! — to gain it all back.” So Kunis no doubt understands that taking off weight, and looking and being healthy are NOT the same thing. Right Mila? Right? [Dlisted] Keep reading »
The lovely Mila Kunis
lived in Ukraine until she was seven years olds and, as a result, speaks fluent Russian. So, at a recent press event in Moscow for her new movie “Friends With Benefits,” Kunis happily took questions in her native tongue. But she was not thrilled when one reporter asked co-star Justin Timberlake why he bothered choosing movies over music. In the clip above, Kunis snaps back at the reporter, “Why movies? Why not? What kind of question is that? Why are you here?” The crowd erupts in cheers and Timberlake is bewildered. Keep reading »
