Mila Kunis covers Elle UK: “I couldn’t even go on a date if I wanted to!”

A few days ago, I previewed Mila Kunis’s Elle UK cover, and here is the full Elle pictorial. I didn’t realize that they were going for a “Valley of the Dolls” theme. Right? It’s very 1960s-Twiggy-Valley of the Dolls. It kind of works, but it also feels kind of tired, to me at least. Kristen Stewart had this exact kind of styling for her W Magazine pictorial last year, and I kind of liked hers better. Anyway, what’s Mila talking about in the Elle interview? Nothing much. She still isn’t admitting that Ashton Kutcher is her boyfriend. I think it’s less about her being “ashamed” and more about her having horrible taste in men and a weird sense of her own victimhood. I like Mila a lot, but she actually starting to bug me a little. Some highlights from the Elle piece:

Mila on dating: ‘Is a guy going to come up to me and ask if he can take me out on a date? Where can I go and have this date? I can’t go anywhere! My house, his house…So what do you do? I’m trying to be like a normal girl and a single girl… but the concept of being single and in my position is just not workable. I couldn’t even go on a date if I wanted to!’

She doesn’t regret dating Macaulay Culkin: ‘Being settled so young really helped. You know, I wouldn’t take back anything in my life, not one thing. I think it all shaped me to be who I am today. There are things that people know about, and there are things that the press doesn’t know about, and everything that did occur 100 per cent shaped who I am. My ex-boyfriend, my family, my friends, everybody.’

Women in comedy are not always respected by men: ‘You have to poke fun at yourself in real life, so why not do it on screen while you’re at it? I’ll always be the first to laugh at myself. I know there is a small, weird group of people who don’t like women being crude, but they really do need to get over that. Even after a film like Bridesmaids, which I loved, a lot of men still don’t see women as funny. Now that’s f***ed up.’

[From The Mail]

I like the part about no regrets, and I liked the part about women in comedy. What I don’t care for is the part about how she’s a “single girl” who simply can’t date like a normal person. I understand the point that she’s trying to make – she can’t pick up a guy at the gym (I guess? Although I think she probably could), she can’t date online. But I don’t get how “I’m a celebrity, I have to approach dating in a different way than most girls” becomes “So I’ve started shamef—king Ashton Kutcher.” HOW??

    Morning y’all!
    Hope the hangovers aren’t too bad..
    Just popped by to say that y’all need to check out cdan.. They had on the craziest blind items reveals there. My head’s still spinning. There’s a juicy one there concerning Mila & Ashton & The Brange!

    this “i cant have a date” is used so often by celeb women. especially from the ones who are constanly switching from guy to guy. (whereas people who really cant get a date are single for years)
    its just to make them appear more sympathetic and likeable.(“oh look even such a gorgeous woman has problems finding a date”) i would feel a lot more sympathy if they were honest.

      re: its just to make them appear more sympathetic and likeable.

      Golly, ya think so?!?

      NO, I’m NOT being sarcastic to/at YOU, I’m AGREEING w/ you!

      I’m sure ‘life in a fishbowl’ isn’t easy, but I’m pretty sure if she didn’t “glam up” & went to a non-trendy pizza place with a guy that wasn’t “glammed up” either she’d be able to have a normal date. As lovely as she looks, guys must be like moths to a flame. This is just another case of “I’m beautiful and well-paid, but gosh, my life is HARD, feel sorry for me.”

    Love the eyebrows
    Eyebrows r the only thing I haven’t mastered in terms of make up…..

  4. PixieCherry says:

    honestly shes a comedy whore !! not classy at ALL … take a look at resse weatherspoon … CLAAAAASS……. nuf said

    i think if you really wanted it and you werent concerned about being papped with Ashton Kutcher, then you really shouldnt be concerned about going out on a date with a normal guy. Let them take pics. Its not like they can hear the convo. Go to a movie or a racetrack. i dont hinks its a hard as shes making it. Forget the dating part, I dont think she realizes its hard to meet guys period, even for normal people.

    Beautiful pics tho

  6. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Meh. There’s a reason why celebs always end up dating other celebs and not “regular” people. It takes someone who is really secure, really comfortable with red carpet stuff, and not afraid of the paparazzi/having their privacy invaded to date a celeb. I know I couldn’t do it. Dating a dude who gets paid to make out (and more) with other women in front of huge audiences? No thanks. Dating a guy who is constantly surrounded by hangers-ons and entourage alike? No thank you. Dating a dude who is constantly being hounded by autograph-seakers and paparazzi? No thanks.
    I mean, I think that’s all she’s really saying. It can’t be easy to find a regular dude that is ok with all the craziness that comes with celebrity.

    Move to where the people don’t know your name..?

  8. cr says:

    Why are they giving her Lana del Rey’s hair?

  9. serena says:

    Now she’s really pissing me off.

    • Micki says:

      Me too.
      There are celebrities who actually manage to date, change bfs, get engaged, get married, get pregnant and give birth without sniffing about paparazzi.Natalie Portman for example.
      P.S. not in this order and she’s still not married I think but proves a point

    “the concept of being single and in my position is just not workable”
    so instead you rather start fucking, no even worse full on dating, kutcherdouche?
    You can´t go on a date, of course you can, you just can´t go on a date unnoticed. She wants to be an actress, fame and money, that doesn´t come without the loss of your privacy. JUST SUCK IT UP! She has been in this business for years, she knew what she was getting herself into the more famous she becomes.
    She really starts bugging me. I don´t like her anymore.

  11. Linda says:

    Am I the only one that really loves her styling here? She looks awesome with this hair and makeup! I wish she’d do it on the red carpet.

  12. Jacq says:

    Her photos are beautiful, but I hate when you see a cover shoot & the subject has the exact same hair in every shot.

  13. The Original Denise says:

    She is really not as deep as people want her to be; she is banging Kutcher. She does not have to confirm or deny, but her magazine interviews are nerve grating.

  14. Jilliterate says:

    I know this is definitely getting close to some Kristen Stewart-level of whining, but I can’t hate on her for it. I’ve heard her say a few times in interviews that she used to play an MMO (WoW, judging from how she talked about it), but had to stop because people recognized her voice when she used ventrilo. I’m usually of the attitude that celebrities should shut up about being famous, because no one forced them to become celebrities, but as a geek, it makes me sad that she couldn’t even get a bit of joy out of playing an online game anonymously. Like I said, I’ve heard her bemoan this incident a couple of times, so I think it really bothered her. I think she’s someone who may have jumped into acting when she was young, and regrets it now, especially since she can’t even find a bit of peace and privacy on the Internet of all places.

  15. Kim says:

    Yeah because no famous people can date??? WTF?! She went from a nice girl to an egomaniac and she doesnt have the talent to back it up.

    Crude women (and men) arent funny. Comedians who have no real talent stoop to crude humor. Its the easiest form of humor and takes little talent to produce.

    • Jilliterate says:

      Au contraire, crude humour has been an oft-used tool of famous and renowned creators such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Jonathan Swift, Mikhail Bakhtin, and Francois Rabelais (ESPECIALLY Rabelais!). Use of crude humour is typical in satires, the Grotesque artistic movement, and sometimes Baroque as well. Crude humour is embraced because of the wordplay that can be created with it, and like other techniques of the Grotesque movement, it’s frequently used to make its audience uncomfortable and draw their attention to truths by subverting societal expectations we may not be aware of. Please don’t write off crude humour as talentless, when so many of our culture’s greatest authors have used it to such effect.

      The more you know!

    I don’t know that Ashton is a “shamef*ck” for her. She gives me the same vibe as he does. Both of them think far more highly of their intellects than they deserve, both of them think they’re deep, both of them think they’re victims. And both of them made careers based on their looks. Seems a match made in Hollywood heaven.

  17. botox says:

    She does hang out with her male friends (mostly gays) a lot and nobody is making any fuss about it in the press. Obviously, if she’s seen with someone like Kutcher or Timberlake then the media gets interested because it can be sold as a story. If she doesn’t date anybody famous she’ll be OK, there are many examples among actors..

  18. Camille (The original) says:

    I love the photos, she looks stunning.

  19. GreenTurtle says:

    Mila, you used to be my girl crush. Sigh, totally tainted by association. If you lie down with Timberdouches, you get up with Kutchers.

  20. taylor says:

    Love the photos, she looks beautiful. Or course that is nothing new. Mila remains so grounded and understanding of the hollywood press/gossip crap that is spread around.

  21. Julie says:

    x17online has photos of them kissing. so much for “it’s absurd a friend is a friend, there’s no crazy love story, the truth is I’m really single. “

  22. ebraca says:

    What’s up with her left breas (on the cover)t? It looks very “bolt-on” to me. And the right is very flat, real, but no support.
