How on earth did she go from the annoying chick on "That 70''s Show" to the cusp of the A-List? \
She just got some kind of award for Black Swan and she''s got tons of stuff lined up.\
Her management team should get some kind of award. Everyone else from that cast couldn''t get arrested at this point.
Laura Prepon''s lack of subtlety and comedic timing.
Expecially considering American Psycho 2: Straight To Video.
She is hot, she works hard.\
MILA KUNIS DESERVES THE BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS OSCAR FOR HER ROLE IN ''BLACK SWAN,'' BASED ON EVERY MOVIE RELEASED SO FAR THIS YEAR.\
THAT ''70S SHOW was not annoying and neither was she. She was playing a self-precious character whom the others constantly took down a peg. It was a warm and wonderful show that''s better than most of the sitcoms available. I will always love it and Mila Kunis for doing it.\
OP hasn''t seen BLACK SWAN.\
I DID, at the Telluride Film Festival. And it''s brilliant.
Go Fuck Yourself, OP
I haven''t seen Black Swan or anything she''s been in besides That 70s Show and Family Guy. But she DOES have a very annoying voice.
I love Mila. She is around the same age as Lindsay Lohan. She spent lots of time in that same circle of people when Lindsay dated Wilmer. Mila''s parents immigrated from Ukraine and still go to work every day. That''s the big difference between two young pretty girls with some talent. Mila was taught to work for a living. Lindsay was not. \
I can''t figure out her relationship with Mac though. He seems like a strange guy.
Anything is possible with Macaulay Culkin''s fat Home Alone residual checks.
***backing up slowly away from r3***
She has the most annoying voice. It works as Meg Griffin, though.
I think she''s beautiful and a good actress.
My cousin''s friend who is a hair stylist to all the big names in Hollywood says that Jessica Simpson taught Mila Kunis everything she knows about ass play. \
The rumor that they used microwave popcorn to mask the smell of reefer is false! They were actually masking the smell of ass.
Never knew she was so attractive til I saw her in I HATE YOU SARAH MARSHALL.
"My cousin''s friend who is a hair stylist to all the big names in Hollywood says that Jessica Simpson taught Mila Kunis everything she knows about ass play."\
Does that mean Jessica Simpson has played with Mila''s ass? I don''t quite get it.
Jeez, r3 it was just a question. Nothing negative about the post. I admire career reinventions like hers. \
I do stand by my opinion that "That 70''s Show" was shit, though.
I like That 70''s show. Mila, Kutcher, Topher Grace played pretty funny characters. But I''m creeped out by that Scientology freak Masterson.\
Plus the show gave us Joseph Gordon Levitt hitting on Topher in the first season.
She''s hilarious as Meg Griffin. Try watching some of the first season episodes with the incredibly boring vocal stylings of Lacey Chabert as Meg.
She wasn''t that attractive during the show. She had a nose job before making Sarah Marshall.
r3, can you tell us about the scene between Mila and Natalie Portman? Is it yet another build up that turns out to be just some wimpy kissing ala Scar JO and Penelope in Barcelona?
If R3 is any indication of Mila''s fans, I don''t want to watch anything she''s in
Shut up, Meg.
Actually, I was very surpised by her acting ability when I saw her in Sarah Marshall. She is very natural - you don''t feel as though she''s ''acting.'' Plus, she is truly a natural beauty. Her beauty and likability come across on the big screen, so I''m not surprised she is becoming a bonefide star. Haters to the left.
She''s beautiful and not in a skanky glaringly fake way.
The new Natalie Wood with comic timing and some acting chops.
Her nosejob sucks but she''s gorgeous.
I heard the whole cast loves her on Family Guy.
I she naked in "Black Swan"?\
I fucking hope so!
She is hot.
"Haters to the left."%0D\
Haters? You must be 12-years-old.%0D\
"The new Natalie Wood with comic timing and some acting chops."%0D\
Natalie Wood was a sucky actress and so is Mila Kunis. Seriously, why are people defending this bimbo? I bet you all think Megan Fox is the greatest actress who ever lived.
I am so grateful Laura Prepon''s career dried up after That 70''s Show. She had absolutely no talent and could barely read her lines. Her only bankable quality as far as I could see was she was model-thin.\
Mela Kunis''s success since then has surprised me, but at least on That 70s Show she could act.
I had never heard of her before seeing Sarah Marshall -- I don''t have a tv and have never seen That 70''s Show -- but I became an instant fan. She was beautiful and very very charming and natural. That''s the only thing I''ve seen her in, and can''t wait to see THe Black Swan. I just wish Natalie Portman weren''t in it. I used to enjoy her, but her embrace of israel is a bit off putting.
She was good in "Extract" as well..... \
Good for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used to get her confused with Rachel Bilson all the time. Not so much anymore.
Like others, I started to appreciate her in ''Forgetting Sarah Marshall.'' I didn''t know who she was until after the movie, and I agree that she was very appealing, displaying both natural acting ability and natural beauty. I also love her on the Family Guy.
R30, that''s her native country you idiot.
I didn''t think she was that great in the earliest episodes of "70s" but she was only 14 at the time, acting older. Plus, she got more into the role of Jackie and became more fun.
*****BLACK SWAN SPOILER ALERT***********
DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING POST IF YOU DON'T WANT THE LESBIAN STORYLINE REVEALED OR NATALIE PORTMAN'S CHARACTER
I wouldn't describe the VICKY, CHRISTINA, BARCELONA kissing as "wimpy." I wouldn't describe it as bold, but whatever.
Portman and Kunis have a full sex scene, in their underwear, in Portman's bed. They kiss and grope a lot, but no nudity. A lot of the close-up writhing of skin may have been body doubles.
So NO, r27, there's no nudity. You can see finely shaped bodies.
But the sex scene is just a fantasy. Portman's character is essentially a paranoid-delusional cutter with an overactive imagination. The challenge for her throughout the movie is to discern what she's imagining versus what is real.
Kunis's character is another dancer from Portman's troupe. A fun-loving, well-adjusted, normal New York City gal who's unlike anyone Portman has ever befriended. She enters Portman's life just as Portman is trying to break free of an overbearing mother and tackle the lead in a ballet.
It makes psychological sense that the ultra-stifled Portman might have a lesbian fantasy about Kunis. Portman has never experienced affection with a female; her female relations have always been very cold. Her mother is an angry, controlling, combative, bitter, bossy, high-stress "Show Mom" trying to realize her failed dreams through Portman.
So when a fun, free-spirited, gorgeous, warm and easy-going character like Kunis shows up and tempts Portman to live a little, it's not hard to see what a liberating breath of fresh air she is to Portman, and how her new discovery might play into an erotic reaction.
P.S. Natalie Portman has a masturbation scene in the movie, where she writhes in orgasmic bliss in her bra and panties on her bed.
With a VERY tight ass and smoking body, IMO. It might be too scrawny for a lot of people, however, as Portman is playing an anorexic.
Go Fuck Yourself, OP
D: Jackie, when exactly did you lose your soul?%0D\
J: (thoughfully, nodding) Cheerleading camp.
Thanks r36. From what you have described though it sounds as if they tamed the sex scene from what the script apparently described as "ecstacy induced, hungry angry sex...."
Mila: Jessica, are your nails trimmed?\
Jessica: Uh huh, see?\
Mila: Oh good. Don''t worry, there''s plenty of popcorn.\
Jessica: Well what are we waitin'' for?
[quote]it sounds as if they tamed the sex scene from what the script apparently described as "ecstacy induced, hungry angry sex...."\
No, that description sounds accurate.\
It doesn''t mean they show nipples or that ecstasy is the ONLY thing fueling the sex :)
Tell me more about her embrace of Israel, R30. I remember her making some good statements that were actually pro-Palestine when she was in college. I know her parents were from Israel, but I wasn''t sure of their politics.
R41 again here. Here''s a link to a letter she wrote to the Harvard Crimson noting that Jews and Muslims in Israel are essentially cousins - depending on your perspective that could be considered inclusive, I guess.
Lots of moderate Jewish Israelis are pro Palestinian. I hung out a group of Israelis in NY a few years ago and they usually became irritated with American Jews if they expressed anti-Palestinian views. Of course, most of the Israelis that I knew were not religious at all and actually disdained religion. \
Okay, back to the hotness that is Mila Kunis. Btw, is she also Jewish? I know she is from the Ukraine.
I believe she is Jewish, yes.
She is Jewish but said her parents were not allowed to practice their religion in the Soviet Union. Her family doesn''t observe a lot of the rules and traditions because they didn''t grow up doing that but they consider themselves to be Jewish. I remember she went on a vacation with Calkin to Israel.
Is she still with Calkin, or is she fucking Seth MacFarlane?
This has the potential to become a really weird thread. Fake Lesbian love scenes. Israel. That 70s show. Culkin. Etc. etc.
She''s in the category of actresses who talk too fast. She and Sarah Michelle Gellar can always fall back on becoming auctioneers.
Only in Seth''s dreams R46
Poor Lacey Chabert. Couldn''t make fetch happen and couldn''t do Meg. She really missed out on a big paycheck not doing Meg anymore. The Simpsons voices earn $400,000 an episode.
I REFUSE to watch any Mila Cuntis movies. Have never seen Sarah Marshall, never will. Will never see this Black Swan bullshit.
What this about ass play...?!
Another who didn''t see her in anything until FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. It''s a horrible movie but I agree with R22 and R30, I was completely charmed by her. I hope she continues to work.
Ooooh, she''s getting all this press because she''s jewish? Got it!
I would rather hear more about her alleged "assplay" with Jessica Simpson. Not sure I believe that one but, it is an intriguing thought.
She has had gigantic amounts of plastic surgery.
Are the raves from lesbian fans (I hope) or desperate teenaged stalkers (it sounds like)? What''s with the rabid defenses?\
DL''s not a fan site, so you''re going to have to put up with some negative comments about any celebrity you make the mistake of idolizing. Unless you want to talk graphic sex gossip, in which case everyone will join in.
Kristen Bell fans insist she, not Mila was the star of "Sarah Marshall."
Kristen Bell is OVAH!
Meryl Streep is a huge fan, I would imagine that helps.
r3 = Meryl Streep
I met Mila when she was at the Wizard of Oz premiere in Moscow. She was incredibly rude to everybody. She comes across as a bitch in real life. And fat too.
I don't get her success at all.
Why is she so famous?
What has she done to deserve all this celebdom?
She is not even the prettiest of the bunch!
I think she's beautiful. She kinda reminds me of Sophia Loren.
R64 I don't get it either. And how is it that her career was dormant for like 3 or 4 years after her shitty sitcom ended, and then all of the sudden she's a big "star"?
It amazes me how the media just radomly choses certain celebs and then kisses their asses non-stop.

Oh, I don't think she's only one who is being bitchy.
I think she's gay. Her being connected to Culkin and now Kutcher is not a ringing endorsement of her heterosexuality. And those are the only two men she has ever been linked to.
I would say she reminds me more of Jaquline Bisset than Sophia Loren which someone earlier in the thread mentioned.
Because she's talented, gorgeous, and gosh darnit people like to work with her.
Mila's beautiful with the right make-up and she's a hard worker, so it's no surprise that she's doing well. I met her in person briefly once and she was nice enough, but surprisingly plain, with the figure of a twelve-year-old boy.
R71 Yikes! It's amazing what makeup can do. Did she get a nosejob? I've never seen old pics.
A lot of jealous bitches here.
I fell in love with her thanks to Forgetting Sarah Marshall
She looks like my cat at R71's link
Mila is an icy cold diva. I was at the premiere of Wizard of Oz in Moscow and can confirm that. She didn't give any autographs and ignored all of her fans. James is a diva too. Michelle was nice to everybody.
Well, Russia isn't exactly gay friendly at the moment. I bet both Mila and James wanted to address the issue, but the movie's PR team didn't allow it.
I live in Russia and know a lot of intelligent people who are gay friendly. Sure, there are some Pro Putin supporters, but most people don't give a flying shit about Putin and co. None of this premiere thing has anything to do with gay issues. If you're a movie star and your fans wait 3 hours outside to get an autograph from you, don't be such a diva.
r79, I apologize. I have a great deal of respect for you and others living in such an opressive enviroment, but for outsiders like me it just looks like the general public just goes along with it without putting up any fight at all.
Editor-in-chief came out and was forced to leave Kremlin-backed TV channel. Here's the insightful interview in English.
Hey Russian Girl! Would you be interested in doing a "Ask Me Anything about Life in Russia" thread?
I think people here would love to learn about modern Russia from a DLer. Gay rights, government controlled media, Pussy Riot, blue jeans...
Mila Kunis often looks like a slob and very sloppy.
I don't find her particularly attractive or pretty.
Not all that pleasing to look at.
Everytime I read about gay opression in Russia I get more and more confused because when I was working in St. Petersburg (summer 2006) I used to go to the gay clubs all the time and even the taxi drivers knew exactly where they were. Going in and out was no secretive operation, it was pretty fun AND cruisy inside(back rooms etc, and I never encountered bashing or hatred upon exiting.
There were two that I knew of - one poofey (with baroque decor and blouse queens) and one grungy (warehouse, dark, dungeony, with mostly t-shirts or no shirts).
Cabs would be lined up (like in NYC) in front to pick up patrons leaving late at night - and by late at night I mean the bright light of day since 4 AM in the summer in St. Petersburg shines as bright as any church Sunday morning.
Plus - right in front of the big Cathedral there was a strip bar that started with girls then switched to boy go-go dancers, for an entirely mixed crowd's enjoyment, with music pumping till the wee hours.
Have things changed since 2006?
Pinko Commie Bastard, are you serious? If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them. ;) You can start a new thread if you really want to know the current status quo. :)
Very serious! I'll start a thread now! Thanks!
Sometimes she is beautiful but other times she looks a lot older than her years and her face can be muddy looking.
Wow, it's 1:34 AM in Moscow, so I'm going to sleep. I'll check the new thread tomorrow. Until laters, commie!
It's called "Calling All Comrades" for when you are ready.
