What magazine isn't Mila Kunis covering!?
Mila was interviewed by James Franco, who has worked on several productions with her, so he gets pretty in-depth with her, covering many things like "the biz", her future and being shameless.
On males vs. females in the industry:
"I think there will always be a double standard between males and females, so I think that an actress is more likely to protect her public persona, so to speak, than an actor would be. An actor goes crazy in a hotel room, gets trashed, throws a bench, breaks a window, and he is considered a rock star. An actress does that and she's sent to rehab and is thought to have problems and issues and can't get a job."
On choosing her roles:
"Well, honestly, after doing a TV show for eight years and a cartoon for more than a decade, you are, financially speaking, in a very lucky position where you don't have to work for the sake of working. And I decided to take advantage of that. I don't live lavishly, so it's not like I have 20 assistants and travel privately and shop every day. I actually live a very mediocre lifestyle. [laughs] So I decided to step back and do things not just for the sake of doing them, but because I believe in them and I want to do them."
On doing on-screen things other actresses might not:
"Because I really have no shame, James. Let's just call a spade a spade. I think that certain things are funny and certain things are okay to make fun of—including myself. I think that you have to laugh at the absurdity of this entire industry and the absurdity of what it is we do. If I didn't, I'd go crazy… So to answer the question as to why I do silly things: Because . . . Why not?"
On her future:
"Listen, in five years I do hope to have a family, and, you know, who knows? I think in this industry people have such a short shelf life, truly, that I don't know what I'm going to be in five years in regards to acting. I mean, I'd love to produce."
We love her attitude and outlook on life! So sassy and free of sugarcoating!
