Your lifestyle, your quirk
Mila Kunis has her head squarely on her shoulders. Not many actresses still in their twenties can claim that. Kunis continued to prove that the Hollywood lifestyle has not gotten to her and made her a diva in her interview and photo shoot for the August edition of Interview magazine.
When Interview asked Kunis how she chooses roles, the actress responded with, “Well, honestly, after doing a TV show for eight years and a cartoon for more than a decade, you are, financially speaking, in a very lucky position where you don’t have to work for the sake of working. And I decided to take advantage of that. I don’t live lavishly, so it’s not like I have 20 assistants and travel privately and shop every day. I actually live a very mediocre lifestyle. So I decided to step back and do things not just for the sake of doing them, but because I believe in them and I want to do them.”
Kunis seemed doomed to be known as “Jackie from That 70s Show” when the show ended in 2006; eight years and 200 episodes will do that to you. Usually when that happens, the actors are typecast. Kunis, however, followed her 70s Show gig up by voicing Meg Griffin on the hit animated comedy Family Guy, for which she is every bit as recognized as she was for playing Jackie. She then moved right up to the big screen, where she has had several memorable roles in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Max Payne, Friends With Benefits, and Ted.
Kunis’ role in the drama The Black Swan earned her multiple awards, including the Premio Marcello Mastroianni for Best Young Actress at the Venice International Film Festival, as well as nominations for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
Kunis is very professional and private, as she does not discuss her personal relationships and sticks to mostly discussing work in her interviews. She also doesn’t waste time worrying about the rumor mill; she just continues living her life for herself.
“This industry can eat you alive. I think it feeds you a lot of bulls**t and then spits you right back out, and then you get caught up in it because so much of it is perception and opinion, “ Kunis said. “The fact that there is no right or wrong is what I think is maddening. I can think you’re a phenomenal actor, but the guy next door can think you’re a horrible actor, and neither of us is wrong and neither of us is right. It’s just a matter of opinion. And when your only source of happiness comes from that opinion, you go mad. So I think that you have to restrain yourself from googling your name and have other hobbies and desires. I mean, you do a million things. You go to school, you write, you read, you blog.”
