Mila Kunis has been quietly trolling Mike Pence
Every time we think Mila Kunis has reached peak levels of perfection, she surprises us with yet another thing. Not only has the actress done a load of great things for charity, she also frequently speaks out about women's issues, and, from what we can tell about her family life with husband Ashton Kutcher, seems to be a fantastic mother.
In her latest feat of sheer awesomeness, the 34-year-old Bad Moms star revealed that she's been subtly trolling Vice President Mike Pence over the last few months - and she doesn't plan on stopping any time soon.
In an interview with Conan O'Brian last night, Kunis revealed on the chat show that she's not Pence's biggest fan (which, if you've followed any of her previous support of the Democrats, shouldn't be a surprise), and that she took umbrage with a lot of his policies - especially those that impact women.
As an outspoken opponent of abortion, Pence has made some enemies amongst more liberal crowds who believe that women should have autonomy over their own bodies. In pursuit of his religious beliefs, the Vice President has been making moves to defund Planned Parenthood - which, amongst many other services, provides abortions - thus causing huge problems for thousands of people.
He's also made some rather weird comments about his relationships with women in the past, stating that he would never dine alone with any woman other than his wife, implying that he either doesn't trust them, or - more worryingly - does not trust himself.
Whichever way you slant it, though, the guy is clearly a tad misogynistic. And Kunis is just one of many people who aren't willing to stand for that.
But, rather than sink to Pence's level, the actress decided to be the bigger person and quietly teach Pence a lesson. When Conan asked her about it, she insisted it wasn't a prank, but more of a "reminder" that some of his beliefs have an incredibly detrimental effect on women and other people who may need access to certain health services.
"I apologise if I'm offending anybody," she says, before going on to detail her trolling methods:
"I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do, and so as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put his name on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood."
Her actions were met by a large round of applause from the audience, and Conan himself also seemed to be pretty impressed.
Amongst other controversial policies, Pence has also made his views on the LGBTQ community very clear, and remains a staunch opponent of both same-sex marriage and civil unions. On top of that, the Vice President has previously expressed some unpopular opinions on healthcare (even saying once that "smoking doesn't kill"), voted against the DREAM act for the children of immigrants, and supports Trump's opposition to the peaceful protest by black NFL players - all the while avoiding a discussion about police brutality against people of colour.
Kunis, meanwhile, seems to have a mostly supportive fanbase. Now, I'm no expert on politics, but perhaps Pence should consider taking a leaf out of her book every once in a while.
