Milena Markovna "Mila" Kunis (Ukrainian : Мілена Марківна Куніс, Russian : Милена Маркοвна Кунис) is an American actress. She is best known for her television roles, playing Jackie Burkhart on That '70s Show and providing the voice of Meg Griffin on the animated series Family Guy. She is also well-recognized for some of her roles in film, such as Rachel Jansen in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and as Mona Sax in Max Payne.
Mila Kunis joins Milla Jovovich and Eva Herzigova in the string of Eastern European beauties who have surfaced since the collapse of the Berlin Wall (perhaps it stayed up so long in the first place to keep ladies like these inside).
Even if it sat atop a grotesquely deformed body, Mila Kunis' face alone, with its exquisitely plump lips and green-blue eyes (each eye is a different color), would qualify her as sexy. Luckily for us, her physique is also stunning. The people at GUESS knew Mila Kunis was hot enough to sustain an ad campaign before she even hit her 16th birthday. And she's only gotten sexier ever since.
At age nine, Kunis took acting classes after school at the Beverly Hills Studios, where she met her first and current manager Susan Curtis. She began appearing in print-ads, catalogs, and TV commercials for children's products like Lisa Frank products, Mattel's Barbie, and Payless Shoes. She also modeled for a Guess girls' clothing campaign. Her first TV role was as the young Hope Williams on an episode of the popular soap opera Days of our Lives. She had a minor role on 7th Heaven as Lucy's nemesis and supporting roles in Santa with Muscles, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, and the Angelina Jolie film Gia, as Gia Carangi's younger self, prior to her breakthrough role on That '70s Show.
Kunis was cast as Jackie in the television series That '70s Show in 1998. During the auditions, all people auditioning for the roles in the show were required to be at least 18 years old, so Kunis told the casting staff at the audition that she was going to be 18 "on her birthday" not specifying to which birthday she was referring. She was actually 14 at the time of the audition and after receiving the part, she was able to keep on the role despite having misled the directors. She had been considered the best fit for the character and was thought to have been creative in her way of gaining the audition despite her age. Kunis has stated many times that she is nothing like Jackie, her character on the show. She has been nominated seven times for a Teen Choice Award for playing Jackie, but never won.
She is the voice of Meg Griffin in the animated TV show Family Guy for which she has received a 2007 Annie Award nomination, and of various characters on the Adult Swim show Robot Chicken. She voiced Tanya in the video game Saints Row.
Kunis has appeared in music videos like Aerosmith's "Jaded", Vitamin C's "The Itch", The Strokes' "The End Has No End", and Mams Taylor feat. Joel Madden's "LA Girls", the latter which also starred Carmen Electra.
She had more film roles during or after That '70s Show—the teen film Get Over It, American Psycho 2, After Sex, Boot Camp, and Moving McAllister.
Kunis' breakout movie performance was in the role of Rachel Jansen in the 2008 movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The performance won her rave reviews and a Teen Choice Award nomination. Also in 2008, she starred alongside Mark Wahlberg in the action movie Max Payne, portraying character Mona Sax. The film is based on the popular video game of the same name.
In December 2008, Kunis was featured in Gap's "Shine Your Own Star" Christmas campaign with other celebrities such as Jennifer Hudson, Jason Bateman, Mary-Louise Parker, Jon Heder, and others.
Denying false reports of marriage:
I've been engaged. I think I've already been married. And I'm sure I have a child somewhere. I'm waiting to have something else happen. No, I'm not married. And no, I'm not engaged. And no, I do not have a child. No one seems to listen. And next week I'll be engaged again. I think, at one point, they were like, 'Seen shopping in Beverly Hills for engagement rings.' We were in Japan working. What is wrong with these people? Half the time you can say they misconstrued facts. But, more often than not, they just make stuff up.
Kunis was ranked #54 in Stuff's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" (2002);
Maxim named her #47 on its 2006 Hot 100 list.
In 2008, she was ranked #81 on the Maxim Hot 100 list.
She was also ranked #81 on the FHM U.S 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2008,
although she is unranked in other FHM magazines from different nations.
She is ranked #5 on Maxim's 2009 Hot 100 list.
Kunis was also accredited to be one of the "most attractive geeks" in 2008 by Wired.com due to her much-publicized affinity for World of Warcraft.
She has a tattoo on her left wrist of 2 playing cards
Mila Kunis Quotes
"I am such a nerd. I'm not one of those girls that goes, "Ha, ha, hee, hee. I'm a nerd." No, no, no--my brain mentality is the same as a 12-year-old little boy. The video games that I play, the things that I like to watch--I'm a Trekkie. I'm so happy the nerds are finally winning."
"I wish I could say something exciting, like that Laura Prepon and I have wet T-shirt contests, but we don't."
"The downfall of the industry is that there is a lot of pressure in it, a lot of rejection in it and a lot of competition in it. It's a whole mess"
" It's fun working on the set... I usually work about 10 and a half hours a day, and I also study about five of those hours. It can be tiring, but it's fun!"
"Acting was a total mistake. It was just something that happened as an accident."
"My goal in life is to enjoy what I do, and never to look back and say I wish I would have done that, and to go to UCLA, and to become someone great in life!"
"I don't think it's true that blondes have more fun... trust me, it is not true!"
- Mila Kunis
in an interview about "Max Payne"
Tight black shorts and a leather bustier and a black coat-type thing. It's almost impossible to look slightly coordinated in 5-inch heels in snow. But apparently, that's what assassins like to wear nowadays.
Talking about "Family Guy"
Because of the DVD releases is the reason we're back on the air. Maybe it's because of awareness. I really don't know why and how it happened, but it happened in the blink of an eye.
Talking about the character of Meg on "Family Guy"
Well, at least for the first two or three years, she was just getting stepped upon, everyone was always making fun of her, and then finally, I'd say a year or two ago, she finally grew a backbone and started standing up for herself. And then she's cursing and yelling...she's more feisty now. I think maybe she's hit puberty in (the) cartoon world, and so she's a finally a little fun. She's fun to play now, as opposed to before when she was just a little loser-chick.
