Beguiling in her Black Swan breakout role, she's now bewitching us in a new take on The Wizard of Oz. Mila Kunis has Hollywood at her feet. We caught up for a chat with the stunning superstar who spilled the beans on censoring herself, setting down and how she proved herself in Hollywood.
Speaking of her role in That '70s Show (where she met now boyfriend Ashton Kutcher at 14) she said: 'When ’70s ended I went on a mission to prove everybody wrong. I read for movies I would never do. I auditioned for everything, just to show I could do it. I needed to prove I was capable of doing things other than - forget comedy - other than a TV show.’
And she did just that, landing several starring roles, including comedy Forgetting Saran Marshall, and a central part in Darren Aronofsky's Oscar-winning Black Swan.
‘To say my life hasn’t changed would be a lie,' she says. ‘It has changed, I don’t really know how. I can’t complain, nor am I complaining, but I can’t leave my house as freely as I used to. But I’ve also travelled a lot for work, so that’s changed. I have been very lucky.’
The result of her worldwide fame? ‘I censor myself,’ Kunis says. ‘Lately, more. But I’ve always said that it is much easier to be honest than to be caught up in a bunch of lies. At least this way, you know who you are.’
So what's next on the list for this Hollywood superstar? 'I don’t think I can do this three-movies-a-year thing. It’s too much. There comes a point in your life where you want to be…home'.
Despite revealing she's booked up into mid-2014 and that she struggles with the label ambitious, Mila says she'd like to try her hand at other things.
‘I want to explore other parts of this industry to see what aspects of it I can get myself into, so that I can... work out of home maybe?,' she says. ‘Like producing. Then I can have, like, a life, in one location.’
