Mila Kunis is a fun woman who is loved by everyone – the guys, the girls – what is there to hate about her? She’s the voice of Meg Griffin on Family Guy, and some may know her as Jackie from That 70’s Show – but Mila has also acted in some of our favorite chick flicks of all time.
Now, to top of her year, Mila is taking the title of “Sexiest Woman Alive” according to Esquire magazine. Last year, it was Rihanna, but now this Ukrainian actress is sizzling up the covers of this issue of Esquire is nearly nothing but a pair of tight leather pants. The entire spread was shot by photographer, Cliff Watts – and Mila is showing us not only her funny side, but her oh-so-sexy side. In this November issue of Esquire, she talks about her being herself, American politics, and her comedic nature.
On not losing sight of who she is:
“What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be. What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be. But whatever it is, it is no longer who they are. So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says. People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be. And I think that I’ve consciously separated my two lives. I love what I do. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. But when I’m done with work, I’m done with work. I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn’t make them proud.”
On her interest in American politics:
“I find it all to be incredibly entertaining. I went to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with Wolf Blitzer. It’s weird: You get invited by people you don’t know–and I never wanna go again, because I had the most incredible experience. Ever. I watch CNN or MSNBC all day long, every day. So I meet with Wolf, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God. There’s Wolf Blitzer.’ Like two drinks in, I just start talking. ‘So, about Ahmadinejad‘s nephew …’ Wolf was surprised I followed politics.”
On her comedic nature:
“I think I stumbled upon doing funny things, but I’m not funny. I just know how to deliver a joke. There are people who naturally exude humor and are constantly saying funny things, and there are the people who know how to deliver a joke. It’s a learned skill. Through twenty years of doing this, I practice it. I think that the second you think that you’re funny is when you stop being funny.”
