Mila Kunis Biography
Birthdate: August 14, 1983
Birthplace: Chernivtsi, Ukrainian SSR, Soviet Union
Mila Kunis got her start on That 70s Show, but it seems like decades since the hot, young actress has been in bellbottoms. Check out what Mila’s been up to!
That 70s Show
Did you know that Mila had to lie about her age to nab the role of Jackie Burkhart? The producers of That 70s Show were looking for an 18 year old actress, but Mila was only 14! Nevertheless, her charm and sneaky answer (Mila said she’d be 18 “on her birthday,” but she didn’t say which birthday!) had cemented her in the role of Jackie.
Mila may be known for her sexy, flirty performances, but she jumped at the chance to voice the awkward Meg Griffin in Family Guy. Mila said she found it fun voicing a character who was “just in a perpetual mode of humiliation.”
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Mila made the jump from the small screen to film early in her career. She acted in terrible movies like Piranha, Santa With Muscles and American Psycho 2 before making a name for herself as Rachel Jansen in the 2008 movie, Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Rachel is a fun-loving Hawaiian who comforts the heartbroken Peter while he’s on vacation. Mila loved shooting on location in Hawaii. “I want to go back to Hawaii,” she said. “I want to kind of transport everybody that I love in L.A. to Hawaii and live there!”
One of the people she loves is her long-term boyfriend, Macaulay Culkin. You might know Macaulay as the child-actor who played Kevin in the Home Alone movies! Macaulay is all grown up now.
Date Night + Black Swan
So what’s next for Mila? She’s starring in two movies in 2010—Date Night and Black Swan. Date Night is a comedy starring Tina Fey and Steve Carell. Black Swan is a more serious movie. Mila plays Lily, a ballerina whose rival is played by Natalie Portman. 2010 looks like it’ll be a big year for Mila!
