#WomanCrushWednesday: Mila Kunis
Life on screen
- 1. It was all thanks to a lottery win
You already know that Mila Kunis is Ukrainian, but did you know that her family moved because her parents won the lottery? When she arrived in Los Angeles at the age of seven, she couldn't speak a word of English, and learned the language by watching The Price is Right.
2. She was blind in one eye for many years
The Black Swan star's right eye is green while the other is brown. A result from her chronic iritis inflammation, it left one of her eyes blind for many years until she had a new lens implant surgery that corrected her blindness.
3. She lied about her age for a part in That '70s Show
Kunis was only 14 when she landed her role as the sassy Jackie on That ‘70s Show, playing alongside future beau Ashton Kutcher. Actors were meant to be 18, so she told the producers that she was turning 18 on her birthday, but didn’t specify when. Sneaky!
4. Her first prom date is now her husband
Mila had her first kiss on That ‘70s Show with Kutcher. “My first real kiss ever was with him on the show, and when That ‘70s Show had a prom, my date for the prom turned out to be my fiancé. We can honestly say that we went to prom together!” said Mila. She's now expecting her second baby with him.
5. Her voice also brings in the big bucks
Aside from her breakthrough in That '70s Show and other parts in Black Swan, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Ted, and Friends with Benefits, Kunis is also the voice of the sarcastic and under-appreciated daughter Meg Griffin on Family Guy since 1999, and several other cartoon shows and video games.
Bad Moms is now showing in theatres. For last week's #WomanCrushWednesday, click here.
