7 Fascinating things you never knew about Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis got her break on the sitcom That 70's Show, when she was cast as Jackie at the age of 14. After eight seasons, she left television for the movies, starring in Black Swan, Bad Moms and The Spy Who Dumped Me. And she continues to voice Meg, everyone's punching bag on Family Guy.
But That 70's Show didn't just start Mila's career - it also introduced her to her husband. Today Mila is married to Ashton Kutcher, who played Kelso on the sitcom - Jackie's old boyfriend. Together, they have two kids, three-year-old daughter Wyatt and one-year-old son Dimitri.
However, there's much more to this actress than meets the eye. Here are 7 fascinating things you never know about Mila Kunis.
1. She moved from the Ukraine to the United States in 1991.
At the time, Mila was seven years old. She made the trip with her parents, brother and grandparents, and they only had $250. Speaking with Glamour, Mila said she grew up poor but "never missed out on anything. My parents did a beautiful job of not making me feel like I was lesser than any other kids."
2. Her first acting job was in a Barbie commercial
Unfortunately, the commercial is not available to watch. "It was called a camping Barbie and I don't think that Barbie ever came out, but I did the commercial for it," she explained to Kate McKinnon.
3. Her eyes used to be two different colors
Mila Kunis used to have heterochromia iridis - and no, that is not an STD. It's a condition where your eyes are two different colors. In Mila's case, one of her eyes used to be blue and the other sued to be green. However, after getting surgery due to cataracts her eyes appear to be the same color.
4. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher were "friends with benefits"
Today Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are married, but they started out as "friends with benefits" on That 70's Show. After the series ended, they both made separate movies about the concept, which both came out in 2011. Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake starred in Friends With Benefits, while Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman starred in the very similar movie, No Strings Attached. And they say Hollywood is out of ideas!
5. Mila suffered three injuries while training for Black Swan
In the Oscar-winning psychological horror film Black Swan, Mila Lunis and Natalie Portman play rival ballerinas. While training for the role, Kunis tore a calf ligament, got scars on her back and injured her shoulder. "I didn't really dislocate my shoulder," Mila told Marie Claire. "I messed it up and had to go and get acupuncture. Darren Aronofsky [the director] had an acupuncturist that literally fixed me. It was unbelievable."
6. She loves Star Trek and World of Warcraft
She's a beauty and the outside, and a geek on the inside. During an interview with IGN, Mila gushed about how much she loves Star Trek and World of Warcraft. In 2011, she straight up told GQ, "I'm a Trekkie." In fact, she's such a big fan of the show she attended Star Trek Experience, an annual convention in Las Vegas. (And you thought you were in love with her before!)
7. The most common thing she hears from fans is "Shut up, Meg."
Well Meg is the worst.
Congratulations! Now you know everything about Mila Kunis. If you ever meet her you'll have a fascinating conversation. (Just make sure you end it with "Shut up, Meg.")
