Mila Kunis named FHM UK’s ‘Sexiest Woman’ & ‘the perfect girlfriend’: really?

I don’t know why it’s “Let’s Give Random People A Random Title” week over here, but that’s where we’re headed. First Gwyneth Paltrow was named the Most Beautiful Person by People Magazine, then Kristen Stewart was named the Best Dressed Woman in the world, then Benedict Cumberbatch was named the Sexiest Man in Britain. And now Mila Kunis has scored the coveted (ha!!) title of FHM UK’s “Sexiest Women”. Everything seems… off.

Now, it’s not that Mila isn’t beautiful. She’s beautiful. She’s got a great body, she’s sassy, smart and funny and her career is going well. There are totally worse choices for the “Sexiest Woman” title. But! There are certainly better choices too, right? The editor of FHM’s “100 Sexiest” Dan Jude said, “Not only is [Mila] naturally stunning, but she has a great sense of humour and isn’t afraid to poke fun at herself. The nation has spoken, and the verdict is that she is officially the perfect girlfriend.” And maybe that’s why she got it? By dating Ashton Kutcher, she’s shown a willingness to date d-bags and superficial jerks. Men around the world see her with Ashton and they think, “Damn, I really do have a chance.”

Also on the FHM list: Rihanna (#2), Kelly Brook (#5), Tulisa Contostavlos (#11), Taylor Swift (#12), and Pippa Middleton (#58). There were also a ton of only-mildly-famous-in-the-UK celebrities whose names I didn’t even recognize. You can see more of the list here.

    I think it’s a good choice but I admit that I’m biased because I really like her.

  2. Christina says:

    Meh. All these ‘sexiest’ polls demonstrate is who has the hardest working PR team. And I’m sorry, but without make-up, Mila is quite plain and has a very average body. Yes, anyone can have an off day, but Mila’s candid make-up free snaps are consistently unattractive. But good for her – she obviously has a great PR team!

  3. T.Fanty says:

    I think they’re working on the theory that if she’ll go out with Ashton Kutcher, she’ll put up with anything. Therefore, perfect girlfriend material.

  4. Belle Epoch says:

    HAHAHA! They don’t read Celebitchy do they?

  5. Anna says:

    Hopefully the PR-savvy #Dragonflies will weigh in on this, but I do NOT understand MK’s PR strategy. Yes she’s gorgeous and funny. She is also talented and was a breath away from an Oscar nom. She’s been a recognized name for a decade thanks to That 70s Show and Family Guy. She is NOT some nameless starlet who needs to be doing the pantless FHM covers (it’s not even the Esquire or GQ!!!). So…WHY? I mean, having a broken douche-radar is a personal problem, but shouldnt people who are managing her career know better?

    • Christina says:

      Good point. These photos very much suggest a Megan Fox-esque sex kitten vibe. Which is fine when you’re an up and coming 22 year, but for a fairly well established star like Mila, it’s very short sighted. There are lots of pretty girls, and they tend to be replaced with lighting speed in the fickle FHM readers’ eyes. She should be looking for a more substantial image which will help her to keep getting roles beyond her 20s, when the next wide-eyed knickerless babe is all over the Maxim covers.

    • clutch says:

      Anne

      Why would she embargo it? FHM is a lads magazine. The kind who wouldnt touch People, Vogue or even Esquire. This is the “reddit” demographic. An actress does well to appeal to that lot, that is where blockbusters are made. She can fight for the oscar on Hollywood Reporter.

      • Christina says:

        The point is that any random 22 year old can look ‘hot’ sucking her thumb and pretending to pull down her knickers on the cover of FHM. But that sort of fame doesn’t last, as there’s always be another 22 year old ready and willing to hook her thumbs around her knicker straps for the ladz magz. Someone like Mila, who is well-established and enjoys at least a modicum of respect, should be looking for a more serious image. Otherwise, in a few years time, she’ll be just another hot babe whose 15 minutes are over.

      • Anna says:

        Exactly what Christina said. Also, while the ‘lads’ would show up to Transformers and Avengers etc regardless of whether ScarJo or Megan Fox showed off their assets on an FHM cover. But those kinds of roles are just as interchangeable as those kinds of magazine covers. For someone like Fox, sure, that increases her profile because she doesnt have the ‘industry credit.’ But for Kunis, who has a great reputation, critical acclaim, money from 2 syndicated shows and a choice of roles and costars, this baffles me.

    I don’t give damn bout my bad reputation/your living past it’s new generation

  7. kayl says:

    She is unbelievably hot however I am not sure I could stir Kutchers porridge.

  8. El Kiddo says:

    Taylor Swift? Really?

    Oh nevermind. I speed-read the whole thing and somehow misunderstood that the award is for The Most Perfect Girlfriend lol.

  9. brin says:

    These “perfect” titles are ridiculous.
    I like Mila but no one is perfect.

  10. Laila says:

    I don’t think anyone can hold a candle to Ava Gardner. Also, Anne Boleyn (random, ik) was the sexiest woman alive in my opinion. Everyone should read up about her in Ive’s biography.

  11. coolio says:

    Ugh can someone please explain why im not feelin her like everyone else is?

  12. lucy2 says:

    I still like her and think she’s really beautiful, despite Ashton. I bet they chose her because of that awesome interview she did with a Brit reporter a while back, where they talked about going to a match and a pub and she blew off all the stuff about the movie.

    But these title things are silly, and I don’t think she has to stoop to the level of those photos.

  13. MisJes says:

    I think she’s a great choice. Love her!

    And I think it’s time to stop holding her choice of Ashton Kutcher against her. Nobody besides Mila and Ashton knows the dynamics of their relationship, yet everyone judges so easily from the outside. For what it’s worth, I have heard stories that indicate that he is actually a fairly nice guy.

  14. mkyarwood says:

    Who’s on the cover? ‘Cos I don’t think that looks like her at all.

  15. truthful says:

    I don’t see it but to each his own, maybe with makeup on.

    pippa made the list so that says alot

  16. OhDear says:

    Eh, this “title” isn’t as absurd as the other two. She looks great when she needs to and FHM readers probably aren’t reading gossip blogs and seeing her bad-day candid photos. As others said, I don’t get her career strategy.

  17. Dawn says:

    I like Mila. That said these polls normally get everything wrong and I doubt that she really gives two snaps what people think about her on a personal level. So that is another reason to like her.

  18. Miss M says:

    These ridiculous titles make me laugh. I need to start working on my own titles as well, so people will believe it.

  19. HotPockets says:

    Kelly Brook should be number one. She DOES have a hot body, the perfect hourglass with a small waist line. I think Mila is cute, but I’ve never thought she was the bombshell people made her out to be, plus I don’t envy her body type. She is short with with barely any curves, she looks fine, but nothing to write home about.

  20. roxy750 says:

    Nice Photoshop of her legs, good Lord. I would look hot too in the right setting and in the hands of a computer artist!

  21. BennyJenny says:

    Mila is not only beautiful, but really funny and genuinely down to earth. Not the greatest actress, but does have good screen presence(lol not in a BS way).
    But on the other hand, who really cares though? The same people win it every year.

  22. Emily says:

    It’s because she’s not high maintenance. That does not mean a willingness to date jerks (and I really think Ashton got a bad rap there). She doesn’t have to put makeup on every time she leaves the house. She doesn’t care if people see her in a sweatsuit. She doesn’t starve herself, so she’s got a great body and plenty of energy. She enjoys sports and just generally enjoys life.

    What straight men think is attractive is basically the opposite of what fashion magazines try to sell us as attractive.

  23. Lauren says:

    I like Mila because she doesn’t gush about Ashton and their sex life. Most folks either go Pfft if you say you have a mind-blowing sexlife or they are jealous as hell. Goopie-Blabbermouth should takes notes from Mila and STFU. I think Mila’s approach to Hollywood & life in general makes her beautiful.

  24. Michael says:

    That cover is way old it’s from december 2005.

  25. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like Mila and my son is head over heels for her!! She seems pretty smart/funny to me.

  26. Glaughy says:

    Mila is beautiful fo sho. But nobody takes this crap seriously, it’s definitely all about PR/who’s popular, otherwise Pippa Middleton would be no where near that list

  27. mar says:

    what in the world id that cover?

  28. Joanna says:

    Her and goop must have the same publicist! because one is all that, imo.

  29. Joanna says:

    Her and goop must have the same publicist! because neither one is all that, imo.

  30. mimi says:

    She is very sexy and seems like the perfect girlfriend and someone I would probably enjoy to hang out with.

    Despite her beauty and success, she seems down to earth and smart, and like a nice girl that could be a lot of fun.

    I can think of very few actresses that can be also down to earth and really lovely and not full of themselves.

    Plus her body is just wow.
