Mila Kunis did a really weird print interview: rude, unprofessional or fine?

FFN_Kutcher_Kunis_BabyStore_EXCL_ROCPR_051714_51416282

I always like to take a moment to appreciate when a celebrity understands that being engaged and engaging with the press is part of their job. It’s fine if an actor wants to say, “It’s just about the art,” and then proceeds to rarely do press for their films, but the only one who gets away with that is Jack Nicholson. Everybody else has to do press, so why not try to act like it’s part of your job as a professional actor, act like it’s part of the reason you make millions of dollars for a few months of work? I appreciate the actors who make an effort to give a good interview, like Channing Tatum or Emma Thompson or Jeremy Renner. What I don’t appreciate is when a celebrity can’t make up their damn mind about what is and is not “okay” to talk about.

Case in point: the last major interview Mila Kunis gave was to Marie Claire. She was funny and interesting, and she talked about her pregnancy, her pregnancy boobs, how her vadge is going to be destroyed and how she doesn’t want Ashton to see her vadge getting destroyed. The problem is that once you’ve let the genie out of the bottle, you can’t then get in a snit when other journalists ask you similiarly personal questions. If you don’t want to answer the questions anymore, fine. But don’t cop an attitude like those questions are beneath you. That’s exactly what happened when Mila did a phone interview with the New Jersey Star Ledger. I feel for this journalist, and kudos to him for explaining exactly how painful this interview was. I like that his editor didn’t make him turn it into a fluff piece. You can read every painful word here. Here are some highlights:

When asked how she’s feeling: “I don’t talk about that for publication,” she says coldly.

When asked if she’s shifting to a career based in indie dramas: “Not really, because in the middle of all that I still did `Oz (the Great and Powerful)’ and I still did `Jupiter Ascending,’ so that sort of destroys your assumption.”

Immigrating to the US from Ukraine: “I’ve talked about me moving to America in a hundred interviews. It’s the most mundane subject possible, it’s like everyone’s immigrant story. It was much harder for my 13-year-old brother, it was much harder for my parents.”

The current situation in Ukraine: “I know what your next question is so let’s just skip it. You’re going to ask me what I think about what’s going on now in Ukraine. Just because I lived there until I was seven doesn’t mean I identify with Ukraine. It just seems weird to do an interview about ‘Third Person’ and then it becomes about Ukraine, and that’s the headline. I do interviews and they seem like they’re supposed to be one thing, and the writer has an idea, and then they become something else.”

Shifting from comedy to drama: “I hate when people ask me this question. People have this misconception that comedy’s easy… I’m always looking for challenges and I find a lot of things to be challenging. It can be the director, the producer, a lot of things. I just want to work with people more talented than I am that I can learn from.”

[From The New Jersey Star-Ledger]

If you want a better sense of how bitchy she came across, I would suggest reading the whole thing. The guy even theorizes that she’s just having a bad day, or that she feels sick or something, because her “coldness” really comes out of nowhere at the beginning of the interview and hovers throughout the whole piece. I mean, who answers “I don’t talk about that for publication” when asked “How are you feeling?” LOL. I have to say it… Ashton Kutcher’s douche has really rubbed off on her.

    What an unpleasant woman.

    • Jayne says:

      I think.you are being unnecessarily harsh. She doesnt have a prior history and she is heavily pregnant. Anyone whos been pregnant knows a bad day can turn you into a monster – hormones!!

      Now if this happens after the pregnancy then maybe we can talk.

      • FLORC says:

        Jayna
        She does have a prior history of being this way. She just knew how to fly under the radar and did so for years and years without incident.
        Then she got with Ashton and she started complaining more.
        And pregnancy is no excuse. She was this way before she was pregnant.

      • Len says:

        This. She’s pregnant. Give her a break. Hormones can make you an evil bc*%h at any moment.

      • eva says:

        She certainly does have previous history of being a bitch, just because she’s pregnant does not excuse this behaviour, she needs to grow up and act professional.

      • Marigold says:

        I’ve been pregnant and I would never treat someone this way in private, let alone in a publication that will most certainly be picked up by the mainstream media. You don’t totally lose control over your manners while pregnant so let’s not perpetuate that idea.

      • Cupcake says:

        I disagree Jayne, being pregnant is an excuse for some things, but not for giving rude and unprofessional interviews that you know will be published. I’ve known women who tried to chalk up bad behavior to pregnancy and it’s BS. I have been pregnant and I have plenty of empathy for pregnant women but there is a difference between being pregnant and being a douche. I feel like the Ashton douche effect is exacerbating this situation.

      • eva says:

        @Cupcake
        absolutely, I’ve been pregnant four times, and not once did it excuse me to treat someone like dirt, nor did I want to.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        @Mairgold +1

        RUUDE! SECURITY!

        She was so rude in this interview that it almost seems fake. I’m not saying it was but damn. If I was doing the interview I would have probably asked “Is there anything you’d like to talk about? Off limits so far: how you’re doing, your career, your political opinions and your childhood. “

      • Faye says:

        @SnarkySnarkers says, please tell me that is a Bon Qui Qui joke and I will love you forever :) .

      • Splinter says:

        Exactly, FLORC!
        I always had the impression that she is a mean girl, I think I saw some interview from when she was in Moscow promoting that comedy with Timberlake, and she was really rude.

      • springingforward says:

        She is rude and unpleasant any time she is unguarded.

        Don’t use pregnancy as an excuse.

      • Jenna says:

        Not really seeing how being pregnant is an excuse for being so unprofessional and bitchy. It was a phone interview – she was home, in comfort, at a prearranged time, with a known person calling to perform a job she had agreed to do. No one had her pets hostage, forcing her to answer invasive questions or Fluffy gets it.

        Being heavily pregnant and rude only works if the guy had been chasing after her, making her walk fast with swollen ankles and asking question out of nowhere. And even then – she is a wealthy actress. If she wanted to hibernate and nest, she has the financial resources to step back and not do press.

        Sorry. But there are few legitimate excuses for acting like a self-entitled brat. Women have had babies since the dawn of time. There are good days & bad for all during, if she was feeling ill she could have rescheduled. She was just being bitchy. Pregnancy was just a handy cop out for her management team. Once she has the baby, when she acts like a spoiled brat – it will be due to lack of sleep/baby teething/colic. Then ‘stressed about school/education/worries about the future. The rude way she behaves is a known thing – and I can’t see it changing ever really. Now it’s because she is pregnant, but in 30 years if anyone still cares about her, her haughty ill bred acts will no doubt be blamed on ‘empty nest’ worries.

        Sometimes a bitch is just a bitch, pregnant or no. She is just famous/rich/hot enough to get a pass usually.

      • katy says:

        I hate the excuse “but she’s pregnant.” I didn’t make you pregnant, I didn’t give you any of the symptoms of pregnancy that might be ruining your day, so don’t take it out on me. Pregnancy is no excuse to be an a-hole, and too many women that I’ve personally known took it as such. I refuse to be treated poorly because some lady decided to get pregnant and is now an entitled d-ck because she’s a soon-to-be mommy.

        Note that I said I knew pregnant ladies – we quickly stopped being friends after I told them to kindly remove their heads from their asses and act like decent human beings.

      • Jen says:

        When I was pregnant I was happy all day. I had a huge ice cream cone every single day (sometimes two) and I ate anything else I wanted & took PLENTY of naps. Oh I do miss those naps. I was actually more pleasant than usual during my pregnancy. (and there were two of them in there).

      • Jayna says:

        @FLORC, that was Jayne you were responding to, not me, Jayna.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        @Faye IT WAS!!! LOL :)

      • Wren33 says:

        With my second pregnancy I was just enraged the whole time. I blame it on the testosterone from a boy fetus. Normally I am the most mild-mannered person possible. Now, I would never take it out in a professional setting, but the pregnancy hormones can cause more than fatigue and nausea. I just wanted to hulk smash everyone I found even mildly irritating.

        So, I can see pregnancy hormones making her think the journalist was an annoying twit when he was just being normal, but it definitely takes entitlement to let her feel like she can express it.

      • M.A.F. says:

        Don’t use being pregnant as an excuse. The first question he asked was the standard “how are you doing?” which she could have answered w/go to answer of “I’m doing good.”

        Lainey over at Lainey Gossip as a great write up on this and why being pregnant should not be an excuse.

      • millie says:

        Pregnancy is not an excuse, she is always rude and bitchy. I boycott all of her movies and all of my friends do as well. She’s also hideous without makeup and even with it, I met her once in LA, she looked disgusting and smelled bad.

    • LadyMacbeth ex Hiddles F. says:

      Totally rude. If she felt sick or something like that she could have postponed or cancelled the interview. Poor journalist…..

    • heidi says:

      Yes, it’s Mila just being her rude, arrogant self. But we have to excuse it while she’s pregnant. Chalk it up to discomfort until she has the child; then hold her to a higher standard of manners

    • SW says:

      Maybe she just didn’t like the person who was interviewing her. To me it makes me think the interviewer was being ride and she was responding to that.

      • Steph says:

        Did anyone else read the whole thing? He asked her basic and standard questions. I don’t get why she was so rude. I also read some of the comments and someone said they tried to get an autograph from her when she was filming Jupiter Ascending and she completely blew off all of the waiting fans.

    • kcarp says:

      I totally agree! Pregnancy is not an excuse for every bad behavior. It is like we excuse all women for everything just because they are pregnant.

      Yes I have been pregnant and yes I was a horrible c***, I said the most awful things to people. Looking back on it there was no excuse to behave that way. I was hot and felt sick. So what I should have shut up

    • MCraw says:

      I really never got her appeal. All those other times she was praised for “sassy” interviews, I thought it was rudeness and condescension cloaked in humor. Getting with Ashton cemented those thoughts. After all, douche attracts douche.

    • diva says:

      Seriously! I use to like her but since she’s been with Ashton she’s been extremely annoying. I don’t know if all that douceness is rubbing off on her or she’s is just showing her true colors. Celebs that talk about their personal lives and then get mad when people ask them about it are the worst.

    • MMRMB says:

      moi aussi.

      Pregnancy hormones be damned. Is that an excuse to be a rude As$hole? I’m so tired of woman using this an excuse for bad behavior, like they can no longer bear to deal with us mere mortals, the rest of the human race.

      Rude people are just rude, and I bet her rude has just been magnified or quantified by a man who oozes rude.

      If you don’t want to do an interview and expect to be asked such “mundane” questions. Then please, don’t stretch out your delicate fingers to answer the phone. Plenty of celebrity live in reclusive or unavailable lifestyles in their off time.

    • millie says:

      She’s so rude. B***h. I met her once and she refused to sign an autograph for me. She also smelled bad!

    • aenflex says:

      I agree, this made her seem quite bitchy. I’m a bitch too, and also pregnant. But I would suck it up for an interview. I would put on my happy face and politely deflect, I think. I don’t think you were being too harsh.

  2. Hannah says:

    Awful.
    I know some people have been blaming the interviewer. But I really don’t get why. He asked perfectly reasonable questions (“How are you?”).

    • Katy says:

      His questions do seem fairly harmless. They are not overly personal and they are not ridiculous, like the questions about underware and diets that the female action stars get but not the men.

    • Nina says:

      Katy, that one time when Scarlett Johansson told an interviewer off for asking her about her diet for the Iron Man movie 👏👏👏👏
      Hannah, then again, Mila is heavily pregnant and she’s been asked all of these questions about a 100 times and maybe today just wasn’t her day. Hormones can make you unbearable. I know this lady and she’s very, very pregnant and very, very lovely but she can turn into an actual MONSTER in a minute. I give her a pass.

      • springingforward says:

        Yeah. If you can’t be semi-cooperative in an interview then don’t do it. People bend over backwards to accommodate a celebrity of her caliber.
        She has a history of impatience and rudeness.
        Again, pregnancy is no excuse.

      • mercy says:

        Male actors in those superhero flicks who are required to wear tight costumes that show off their great physiques are asked about their diets and workout routines and subjected to questions about their ‘hot bods’ all the time. Many a celebrity trainer and men’s fitness mag has gotten a lot of mileage out of ‘Get a body like…’ articles on actors.

        Mila always seemed to have a bit of a bratty, immature way about her, imo. Sometimes it was charming, more often not. I’d be more inclined to blame child actor syndrome than pregnancy discomfort or even Kutcher, but maybe it’s a combination of all of the above.

      • Nina says:

        Mercy, in that particular interview Robert Downey Jr. got a really deep, wow-give-me-a-minute-to-think question, whereas all Scarlett got in the entire interview was “so, how’s the bunny diet working for you?” She called the interviewer out and I give her props for that. But yeah, of course male actors get the question too.
        I mean, I never really LOVED Mila. This was definitely a really bad interview but we don’t know what kind of day she had, maybe it was just downright dreadful, but I agree. If she was in a really bad mood and unable to co-operate, she shouldn’t have come.

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    Yikes! So you can talk about your snatch and natural birth on a talk show, but a journalist can’t ask how you’re doing on a Tuesday? Have all the seats.

  4. Kiddo says:

    It sounds completely hormonal, but she should have skipped/canceled the interview instead of being so cantankerous and rude to the reporter.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree. Hormones. She should have cancelled. I have been bitchy under the influence of hormones before, and I knew I was being an ass but I couldn’t seem to stop. Thank God it wasn’t tape recorded. Idk, I think this is a one off. Unprofessional, but not typical.

    • Ag says:

      while she is preggo, experiencing crazy hormonal shifts, and prob uncomfortable physically (at least at times), you can still be a professional when you feel this way. as you two said, you just cancel, saying that you’re not feeling well. people would understand. also, being hormonal as hell doesn’t mean you lose freaking control over your behavior. :)

    • Santolina says:

      When I was pregnant, I had mood swings and uncomfortable moments, yes, but I didn’t suddenly turn into a leering, ranting, head-swiveling demon harpy.

      • yogapants says:

        You had me at ranting and head-swiveling, but “demon harpy” was the icing on the cake. Well-played, ma’am, well played!

      • Bridget says:

        There were a couple of head-swiveling demon moments during my first pregnancy that my husband’s friends still haven’t forgiven me for. It’s weird, because you know you’re being crazy but you just can’t stop it, like someone else is driving your body. But even then I still apologized and accepted responsibility, even if to this day I privately think they also behaved badly I managed to never give an “I’m sorry, but…”

        I mean, couldn’t Mila have apologized to the guy and re-done the interview?

      • jjva says:

        I’m due Friday and I hate everyone right now and I’m still enough of a damn grownup to check myself before I act THIS b*tchy.

    • kennedy says:

      People- let’s not blame this on pregnancy. Let’s not turn something joyful and wonderful into a deficiency!! She’s an asshole- plain and simple. She has always seemed like a closeted asshole in interviews- I never understood the “best friend” or “cool girl” hype she received a few years ago.

      Also- she should be happy the interviewer didn’t spend too much time talking about the Paul Haagis movie — considering it’s AWFUL. And she’s awful in it.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Oh, I would never try to take away from the joy and miracle of pregnancy, but for some people, moodiness is part of it, no? I’ve only had bad hormonal episodes from pms, and I’m not one of those people who thinks it’s an excuse for murder or anything, but I have been unable, on a few occasions, to control my emotions the way I can when I’m not hormonal. I’ve either gotten angry out of proportion to the circumstances or cried inappropriately. Not that it’s really an excuse, but I can relate.

        I guess she’s never seemed like a jerk to me before, but I don’t know that much about her.

      • Kiddo says:

        @GoodNamesAllTaken, Yeah, I didn’t assert that she did the right thing. But she has been all over the place in interviews, in transparency and mood, that hormones could be playing a role. It doesn’t mean she should have acted that way at all. If she felt she didn’t have the ability to be polite, she could have quashed the whole deal.

      • ScrewStewrat99 says:

        @Goodnames – Pregnancy can definitely make you crabby. When I was pregnant, during the first trimester I was insane. I was exhausted all of the time and really, really moody. I would be very mean and snappy to my boyfriend for no reason. It was really weird and even though I knew I was being mean, I couldn’t stop. I would have to calm myself down and apologize to him a lot. Around the middle of my second trimester I calmed back down. I guess it was just my hormones going all crazy and changing.

  5. paola says:

    You can come down just as quickly as you go up young lady.

  6. lizzy says:

    No, I’m sorry Mila. But SIT DOWN. You can’t talk to the press about your vagina being torn apart and then not say “fine thanks” when someone asks you how your feeling.
    She can’t demand privacy and refuse to talk about something that she’s already spoke at length about (to be honest I couldn’t care less about her vadge!) to the press.

    She either talks and decides to be cool about it like emma thompson or someone. Or be like Kerry Washington and says absolutely nothing.
    Mila can’t have it both ways. Super annoying!!

    (Omg…I typed Olivia Washington at first…haha!)

  7. Lindy79 says:

    Wow…if she was feeling that off maybe postponing it would have been better than this. Given she’s heavily pregnant I’m sure the publication would have understood.
    She’s just rude here, no other word for it

  8. kri says:

    Wow. It appears Meg Griffin just woke up and realized she’s been banging Brian the dog, and is now tied to him forever by having his litter. Methinks things might be going badly already. She better never install a hot tub. Actually, I feel bad for saying Brian-he is the most sensitive character on Family Guy. I should have said she woke up and realized she’s pregnant to Ashton Kutcher.

  9. Sarah says:

    ashtons douche hasnt rubbed off on her. it is IN her. literally.

  10. T.C. says:

    Her comments are so rude. She should have just postponed the interview if she was having a bad day. but homegirl just treated that reporter like sheet. Completely uncalled for.

  11. eliza says:

    I knew Ashton Kutcher would be blamed for this. Lol.

    Well in her defense, she isn’t defending Mel Gibson or Alec Baldwin. I don’t think she is a conservative or glamorinzing suicide, so the interview to me isn’t so bad.

    She is probably crabby and pregnant. Maybe just bitchy that day.

  12. Eleonor says:

    I can feel the cold from here.
    Basically this interview was “how are you” – “go to hell”
    “what about your career choice”-”i’ve just talked about that you could have read my other interviews”.

  13. lisa2 says:

    Maybe this is who she is and has nothing to do with Ashton. It’s easy to blame him. I mean people are who they are. The other person doesn’t make you that way. They may just give you a comfortable place to let what is already there out.

    There are many celebs that do interviews and the author puts their spin on it and highlights what the want from it. I guess the way you combat that is not to be interviewed by them again.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      + a bajillion!

      She is who she is. Maybe she had a bad day, but maybe she’s a b-tch. That was a really, really b-tchy interview. And I’m not sure what that means about her. I mean, I’ve had my bad days, have snapped out something that was mean, but it’s never been something like this….particularly since the interviewer didn’t do anything to make her upset.

      Also–celebrities (majority of them) exercise control over questions that are asked. So why is she mad about being asked about Ukraine, or coming to America? She obviously approved the questions.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        I always thought they have control over questions but after following gossip blogs, I am not so sure. I mean, they are always asked about things they know nothing about and come across as a bunch of dimwits. Either most celebrities and their pr team are really a bunch of dimwits or they don’t have as much as control as we think they do.

      • Dash says:

        Former celebrity journalist here – only the biggest of the big (Justin Bieber) get to approve questions. For a movie interview, the rule is “no personal questions”, but they don’t get to approve questions. Of course this can make your interview very dry and boring.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @Dash
        Thanks for your perspective–I just read about how tightly controlled these celebs are over their images, so I’d assume that that’s par for the course. Maybe it also depends on how dedicated the publicist is. Plus, I think in the long run, you can’t really force a journalist to NOT ask a question–not unless you have them sign something.

  14. Wilma says:

    The interview does get better if you read the whole thing. I think actors are allowed to have a bad day.

    • Eleonor says:

      Everyone is allowed to have a bad day but this thing was scheduled, it wasn’t a paparazzo at her dinner table, or outside her house. When you have to interact with people for job, being rude it’s unprofessional. The jurnalist asked “how are you” a simple “I’m doing fine” could have easily stopped other personal questions.

    • OhDear says:

      Everyone’s allowed to have a bad day, but don’t take it out on an innocent party, such as someone who’s just doing his (her?) job.

  15. Marty says:

    I’ve always like Mila, but Ashton’s d-bag was have definately rubbed off on hers in other ways too.

    Maybe it was a bad day, but she was still being extremely rude.

  16. Leen says:

    Omg wow someone woke up grumpy as hell.
    And that’s a little bit weird about how she answered the Ukraine question, I know a lot of Ukrainians who left the Ukraine when the USSR fell (around 2-5 years old) and they still identify heavily with it.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I thought that was a particularly crappy answer. My dad left his birth country more than 70 years ago and still considers it his true home. She may not identify that strongly with the Ukraine but she could have been more thoughtful and respectful in her response. Instead she came off as petty and stupid.

    • Your Mama says:

      That was the strangest part to me too, she doesn’t identify with the country she was born in and where her family is from? Nevermind that I am not from that country but am worried about the current situation there. Nothing can excuse that part of the interview.

  17. Tanguerita says:

    I’m actually surpised about people being surpised about her bitchiness. She’s always been pretty smug and rude.

    • Ayre says:

      Yep. Never got the Mila girl-crush brigade. To me she’s always seemed like the kind of person who’s been told they are so cool and so funny enough times that she believes it’s true even when it’s not.
      Because the problem is the people telling her how cool and funny she is (Ashton, Seth MacFarlane, etc…) are themselves just pompous windbags.

      This isn’t hormones. If you talk to people this way in a professional interaction then you are an @ssh*le. Full stop.

  18. Alia says:

    I’ve always found her to be a bitchy – way over estimates her worth.
    It’s actually a rare thing for her to be funny or likable.

  19. SpookySpooks says:

    She sounds really bad here, which is sad because I love her. I can understand not wanting to talk about Ukranine, but the other questions were fine.
    She can come across quite sarcastic in interviews, but this time she was plain rude.

  20. delorb says:

    I agree with her that the Ukraine question seemed a bit ‘gotcha’ and asking her about immigrating has been done to death, but there has to be a more charming way to steer reporters from subjects than to scream, ‘next!’.

  21. fpr says:

    There is a piece written about this non-issue on salon.com which is abundantly more insightful and female friendly than anything going on here.

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      Female friendly? She was being rude. It has nothing to do with her being a female or not.

    • Jesse4 says:

      This doesn’t have to do with being female to me. She was rude. Just like Bruce Willis was recently in an interview. And she doesn’t get to play the pregnancy card as there have been tons of professional actors that were pregnant and interviewed and they weren’t rude. She’s doing her job. If while pregnant I was rude to a client or co-worker you think everyone would just say “oh she’s just pregnant”? I don’t think so. Uh, sorry, I’ve been pregnant and if I had to be professional for my job at the time I was. Don’t blame this on being pregnant. You could if she was puking during the interview. This was not the case. She’s not being called out for puking. She’s being called out for not being nice or professional. And people are blaming or talking bad about the reporter. Really?!?

      • TG says:

        Agree and to those of you who think usin pregnancy hormones as an excuse for bad behavior where do you draw the line? I mean if a pregnant woman kills someone is that okay because it was just her hormones? I know being rude is not the same as murder but you are accountable for your actions regardless of pregnancy status. I can’t wait to read Lainey’s take on this useless douchebag of a pregnant woman. Talking about shredding vaginas and then having the nerve to tell a reporter you don’t talk about your personal life. Reminds me of AnnE Hathaway during her Oscar campaign stating endlessly about starving for her role and then stating in another interview that she does not talk about that. WTF? She is now on my out list.

    • Sullivan says:

      Female friendly? Rude behavior isn’t gender specific.

      • The Original Mia says:

        Exactly! That just perpetuates the notion that women can’t control their emotions because of HORMONES. It’s BS.

      • Ayre says:

        I read the Salon article and I have to say that pregnancy hormones as an explanation for poor behavior is the only thing that’s female un-friendly in this discussion.

        The Star-Ledger journalist speculated that morning sickness may have been the cause of her attitude. Salon rightly picks up on the fact that this is a condescending speculation. Other than that the rest of the Salon piece is a whole lot of stretching to find a reason why she would behave in such a way.

        Salon defends her for saying “I hate when people ask me this question.” There’s really no defense for that kind of response in an interview situation from someone whose JOB it is to be interviewed. Press is at least half the job description for a movie star.

      • Santolina says:

        I read the Salon.com article, too, and I don’t think Kunis did herself any favors. She may have been truthful, but brutally so and tactless; and the journo may not have been skillful or experienced enough to see the nuggets of authenticity through the hail of verbal fire, but some of it was directed at him.

    • LadySlippers says:

      •fpr•

      😊 Thank you😊 for that recommendation!

      What a different and interesting way to look at her interview as the author in that piece really gives you some points to ponder and chew over.

      Again, thank you for that. I always love being challenged in how things are perceived. And this certainly did that.

  22. Ninks says:

    I loved the bit at the end where he apologises for the interview and she tells him it was a good one.

    Sometimes, I think Mila seems like she’s giving an attitude when she’s really not. I get that sometimes myself, people think I’m in a bad mood and tell me to cheer up and I’m always surprised to hear that because I think I am in a good mood. Something in my tone or manner I guess. Not that this is the only issue here, she did come across as being rude on a couple of occasions.

  23. Kiki says:

    She’s always been like this. I remember a story about her when someone wished her Merry Christmas. Her reply? I’m Jewish. I don’t believe in any of that Jesus shit. There are better ways to correct people. She’s nasty and awful. She’s always been.

    • Renee says:

      I always thought that she gave off *sshole vibes!!! But I have to say I can forgive the Christmas bit. It must get tiring to always have people assuming that you are something that you aren’t, i.e. that you are Christian. I can’t think of how to properly explain this, but there is almost this assumption that she *should be* Christian and there is a long history of attempts to eradicate Jewishness…but maybe she was just being a jerk, she didn’t have to respond in that way.

      And (this has nothing to do with your comment Kiki) as for people thinking that Ashton is a douche who has rubbed off on her, while he doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy inside I have never heard of him being unprofessional in work related matters.

      • Kiki says:

        I think some years ago, when people weren’t so sensitive. People really meant things without malice. Like saying “Merry Christmas”. When I read her answer, literally, I cried. How can you respond in such a mean way to a truly inoffensive remark? It’s not about if we think you’re Christian or not. Would it have killed her to join in on the spirit and answer politely? She needs some manners and yet, she doesn’t want her child to grow up as an a**hole. I doubt it.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Um, I don’t think the issue is that she was Jewish or not. And not everyone who celebrates Christmas is Christian. In fact, I’d say the vast majority of people aren’t. It’s about being polite. If I was Jewish or Muslim and someone said Merry Christmas to me, when I live in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, I would smile and say thank you and happy whatever holiday I celebrated. And you never know if people are being rude or if it’s because they’re used to saying Merry Christmas. I don’t live in a place that has a bunch of different races/religions of people, so I only interact with people who celebrate Christmas. That doesn’t mean I’m subtly implying that everyone I meet is Christian because I wish them a Merry Christmas.

      • Sighs says:

        Geez. Just say thank you and Happy Hanukkah back to them.

      • Renee says:

        @ Virgilia,
        There is no question about whether or not she was rude in her response and I did address that when I wrote, but maybe she was just being a jerk. I mean, I started out my comment by saying that she was an *sshole, FFS!! I am saying that I can forgive it because of the fact that she is Jewish, which IS relevant. But then to suggest that she should get in on the spirit and just participate is pretty much suggesting that she should ignore her own religious affiliations and do what the majority of people are doing. I can’t get on board with that. Maybe she was being cranky because she is a major grump/*sshole and the assumption that she would/should participate in this holiday irritated her further. It’s not like she was calling for the execution of everyone who observes the holiday. She is a buttwipe, which exacerbates everything, but to say “this is what I would do if I were her” is moot because we are not discussing you. I know that not everyone who is Christian celebrates Christmas, I’ve known atheists to do so and I had a Jewish co-worker organize the secret Santa Christmas gift exchange at my workplace. Again, a moot point.

        And as for this, she’s in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA business. Um, no. If we want to go there, this country is occupied NATIVE AMERICAN territory and they historically certainly were not Christians; it’s not like we recognize their myriad forms of spirituality or customs. The demographic of this country is continually changing and shifting. There are ever increasing populations of people from countries where Islam is the predominant religion, if they grew to be the majority demographic here would people get on board with observing Muslim holidays??? I don’t think so. I can get on board with majority rules but not when it comes to matters of cultural sensitivity and inclusiveness. I mean, that there is the justification for the majority of the isms towards marginalized groups in the history of the U.S. I have friends/coworkers who are of other religions, cultures, etc. who are respectful of Christianity but also get pissed when it is assumed that they adhere to Christian customs.

      • LadySlippers says:

        •Renee•

        As a Jewess, I say thank you for what you wrote. Spot on.

        •VG•

        Normally you are also sensitive when it comes to culture but in this case, you missed the boat.

        •Y’all•

        It does get frustrating when people know you’re Jewish and they proceed to not care and ignore it. Or worse, trample on it or say something anti-Semetic. It happens quite a lot, the ignorance is preferable to the people that don’t care and make that exceptionally clear. And sometimes it does test your patience.

        Muslims have similar issues too. As do other minorities.

        A little cultural sensitivity goes a long way.

      • Kiki says:

        LadySlippers, this story happened many years ago. We can’t really know what people celebrate or not. Getting in on the the spirit of Christmas is not by any means, rejecting your own beliefs. I think that comment is completely… Irrelevant. She was nasty and rude. She was also offensive. Nothing justifies an answer like that to such an innocent remark. Nothing.

      • Josefa says:

        I’m an atheist, I criticize how the Christian religion works daily and even mock them fairly often, and when people wish me a Merry Christmas my reply is always “Merry Christmas to you too”. It’s called being polite.

        Unless a bunch of religious fanatics brutally murdered your family on Christmas Eve, I can’t find an excuse for behaving like that over such an inoffensive greeting.

      • Josefa says:

        PS: In this very interview she replied “I don’t talk about that for publication” when asked HOW SHE WAS FEELING.

        I’m worried about her now. If she gets so offended by what literally are the most basic and inoffensive greetings in the English language, I wonder how she could react to an actual insult.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Okay–maybe I’m misunderstanding what the original poster meant. What I meant was that if someone who didn’t know me, let alone my religious (or lack thereof) beliefs and said to me, ‘Merry Christmas’, then I would say thank you and move on. Or I would politely correct them. But I don’t really see it as a big deal, either way. If I was the biggest pagan that walked the earth, there still would be no need for me to get rude about someone wishing me a Merry Christmas. That’s all I meant.

    • Talie says:

      This. She’s one of those people who feels the need to get real salty to come off cool.

    • Faye says:

      @Renee, I’m Jewish and I know what you’re saying about the history, but still, that was just inexcusably rude. I’ve had people at work, most of whom know I’m a religious Jew, wish me “Merry Christmas” and I just let it go. It’s more of a reflex than anything for most people. I’m disappointed in Mila; I never knew she was like this.

      • Renee says:

        Faye,
        I wish that we could inbox or IM people here :) I am a lapsed Catholic, and I cringe inside when people use language that could be construed as blasphemous. So when I read about her saying “Jesus shit” I did not take that lightly. Her language was disrespectful and she is a jerk, there’s no doubt about it. As I pointed out using salty language of my own, I think that she is a butthole, and I always have. But in spite of this, I can give her a bit of a pass here because she although she could have been using her Jewishness as an excuse to be an ass, she does have a point. Regarding Christmas, I try to be sensitive and inclusive and I still slip up, but what I try to do is to tell people to have a happy holiday or if I am at work, to enjoy their break. This kind of reminds me of being at work with two co-workers who were Asian and this woman wished them a happy new year, it was Chinese New Year, and the one who was Korean was pissed and the other who was Japanese said that she didn’t mind and thought that it was nice. But I digress.

        On another note, please don’t feel that I am stalking you but I noticed that you haven’t been on the “boards” in a while and it’s nice to see you back. I miss your thoughtful commentary and the fact that you are willing to speak out against racism and bigotry in a respectful manner that doesn’t excuse it. Also, a lot of the posters here have a mob mentality and will really pile on or be condescending/bullying if they disagree with you, so having posters like you here is a great relief.

      • Faye says:

        @Renee:

        Thanks for your thoughtful response. I appreciate that as a non-Jew you were trying to be empathetic to the “other side.” I still think Mila doesn’t get a pass, though.

        We definitely all have areas of sensitivity, like with the example you cited re Chinese New Year (although my impression was Lunar New Year was being celebrated all over Asia now). I think the take-home message is that we should all try to be sensitive to others’ differences while not going overboard and allowing for a certain amount of “honest mistakes.”

        Thanks for your kind comments! I had to take a break for a while because of some of the reasons you mentioned. I think I’m going to try and stay out of the really “heavy” threads from here on out. I always enjoy your comments as well.

      • LadySlippers says:

        •Faye•

        What you’re talking about doesn’t bother me either as it’s habit to wish people a ‘Merry or Happy Christmas’. They usually miss the error or get really embarrassed! Honest mistakes aren’t offensive.

        What I gleaned from •Renee• was that when we are cognitive of it — try and be culturally aware. That’s it.

      • Mel M says:

        This is when the waters get muddy for me. To some Mila has an excuse for being rude because she is Jewish and saying Merry Christmas offends her. BUT when some one says “Jesus Christ” in an OMG kind of way Christians should just deal and not be offended because to the person saying it it means nothing and are just words. I have seen that argument used on here before. It’s the same with people getting offended when someone says “I will keep you in my prayers”. I just don’t understand what we should and shouldn’t be offended about. Something’s are taken too seriously and something’s aren’t taken seriously enough, it’s tiresome.

      • Faye says:

        @LadySlippers – I agree with Renee re cultural sensitivity! I was speaking specifically about Mila’s case, where I’m wondering if the interviewer who said that didn’t realize she was Jewish.

        @Mel M – I’m not really sure what you mean? I can’t speak for anyone else – for me, I just meant that Mila was being rude since presumably she was wished “Merry Christmas” in an innocent, non-offensive meaning way.

    • Ayre says:

      There are plenty of people who celebrate Christmas who are neither Christian nor religious. I do tend to say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” but I think she’s old enough to think of a more enlightened response. How about, “Thank you! And Happy Hannukah!”

  24. Barrett says:

    Maybe because its the New Jersey star ledger, she is snubbing the journalist which is not fair.

  25. Diana says:

    She should have explained up front she was having a bad day and postpone. I really feel for the interviewer here.

  26. Rhiley says:

    You know, I really wanted to like Mila Kunis for the long haul. I liked that she had a long term relationship with someone like Macauley Culkin, and during all the press for Black Swan, I enjoyed her much more than Natalie Portman. But then I started to eye roll when she would talk about how lower middle class her upbringing was; how her mom is a humble employee of a local CVS (or Walgreens). Her mom isn’t some cashier at the local drug store. She is a pharmacist, as well as a physics professor, professions that pay very well and can support a family comfortably. Her father though more than pulls his weight as an engineer. And then came Kutcher, and Kutcher’s baby, and now treating people like crap when they are only doing their job. She seems to be disconnecting herself from everything that made her interesting in the first place until now she is just another boring, knocked up starlet who in a few years will have to be some kind of stupid “brand” because her acting career is going to be nonexistent.

  27. MediaB says:

    Yeah, unprofessional. Play the game you’re supposed to or postpone to when you’re feeling in the mood.

    After the reading the whole thing, i was left wondering what the hell the poor guy was supposed to ask about. I know some questions can get tiresome (the Ukraine one, for example) but you can politely bat them away.

    Reminds me of that interview with Cumberbatch last year where the reporter admits at the beginning that the first attempt at an interview went off the rails (and takes some resonsibility for that), then says they did a do-over and managed a perfectly pleasant and vaguely interesting piece. Professionalism on both sides.

  28. The Original G says:

    ……..and what exactly is she promoting besides Ashton’s spawn?

  29. FLORC says:

    Since there loads of people saying she might just be having a bad day…
    She might be. It’s possible.It’s just more likely this is her personality since she’s diplayed it before in many interviews prepregnancy to post getting with Ashton.

    If you want to blame an outside influence for her attitude to take blame away from her personality it would be Ashton.

    • LadyMacbeth ex Hiddles F. says:

      I don’t think Ashton has nothing to do with that. Kunis doesn’t seem the sort of woman easily influenced by anybody. She is together with Kutcher because she was modelled from the same dough, if you get what I mean. Two assholes.

      • FLORC says:

        I’ll go as far to say her attitude laid dormant for years or just was never brought up because she was aware of pap hangouts and avoided them. Enter Ashton and suddenly she goes to all the pap heavy locations to complain about the paps.

        She might have been this way before him, but he is exacerbating it. IMO he brings out the worst in people.

  30. als says:

    “Ashton Kutcher’s douche has really rubbed off on her”…or maybe his douche just brought her douche out.

  31. jonB says:

    why you’re always blaming Ashton ? I always thought she’s unpleasant

  32. Original Tessa says:

    If anyone was ever that rude to me when I was doing my job, I would be absolutely shell-shocked. That interviewer did not deserve that. What a total B.

  33. mkyarwood says:

    In terms of the ‘how are you feeling’ question, it sounds like this was done early on in her pregnancy. People don’t ask me questions of any relevance around then because of similar reactions, heh. Still, she could have rescheduled to avoid this mishap so I’ll say: unprofessional.

  34. Talie says:

    There have been rumors and evidence of her attitude forever… I think she developed an anger with the press way back when, probably when she was with Caulkin and saw how he was treated. What a painful interview though… yowza!

  35. Mia4S says:

    Ummm the crabby bit could be hormones but she’s been talking about how giving birth will wreck her vagina in one interview and then crying privacy in others? That’s not hormones, that’s douchiness.

  36. Fab says:

    Hormones..We dont know them, not everyone has been pregnant, and have that feeling like today im cutting it out if i dont get a (example) donut, NOW! Indeed a bad day. But dont open floodgates if you cant close them.

  37. Sabrina says:

    She comes across as a terrible person and being pregnant is not an excuse for that. I can’t believe that there are actually people defending her, not necessarily on this site, and blaming it on pregnancy hormones.

  38. ang says:

    Good for her….people seem to think that just because some one is “famous” they owe the public a detailed run down of every aspect of their life. And she’s right …all the questions he asked were mundane and have been asked a million times…she doesn’t owe these people anything …I don’t think she was rude at all…just frank.

    • idsmith says:

      So why agree to do the interview then? They all get asked the same questions over and over. She was a bitch about it. I don’t always feel like doing my job either and sometimes I get to work in a bad mood but I certainly don’t take it out on the customers. She’s unprofessional in my book.

  39. Liz says:

    In past interviews she’s given clues that she can be very bitchy. I’m not surprised. One can’t blame her extreme rudeness on Ashton or pregnancy, this is ALL Mila. I’m also glad the editor allowed this interview to be printed. All publications need to do this more often instead of putting up with the crap they’re forced to eat.

  40. Jayna says:

    Beyond rude. A lot of her answers were very condescending. I hate that in a person. Earn your big, fat paycheck and be pleasant while you are relaxing at home doing a telephone interview.

  41. Green Is Good says:

    Wow, she was a straight -up , snotty b$tch! And no excuses like it’s her hormones, or it’s because she’s pregnant . Pregnant doesn’t excuse RUDE.

  42. grace says:

    I don’t think pregnancy should be an excuse for this kind of behaviour. Pregnant women are not emotionally unstable monsters who treat people like shit because – hormones. She should have not bothered to carry on with the interview if all the questions were so “offensive”.
    Just when you think these Hollywood people are nice or interesting they prove to be complete idiots.

  43. serena says:

    What a rude b*ch. I don’t care if she’s pregnant, she has no right to talk like that. I don’t think it’s Ashton influence.. I suspect she has always been like this. Remember when there were just rumors about her and Ashton? Her replies and interviews were… much like this one.

    She should just apologize and change her attitude, I’m sick of her.

    The poor journo..

  44. Delta Juliet says:

    Wow I can’t believe how many people are making excuses for her. If she was feeling shitty and couldn’t control her bitchiness she could have AT LEAST said “I’m sorry, I’m not feeling well today.” I’ve been pregnant twice, threw up for the entirety of both and still had to not be a raging bitch when I was at work. It’s not like a phone interview is that freakin’ demanding.

    Also, “feeling” bitchy and being a bitch are two different things. I “feel” bitchy plenty of times. It doesn’t mean I can just talk to people however I want. There is a such thing as self-control.

    No excuses for rude behavior.

  45. Sway says:

    “Ashton Kutcher’s douche has really rubbed off on her. ”

    LOL! She was a bitch long before Kutcher. I think his influence shows only in that she now shows it a lot more freely and does not conceal it like before. Maybe he’s given her confidence to just be herself? (#silverlining) Mila has a uber bitch face, here’s only few examples:

  46. idontknowyouyoudontknowme says:

    I’ll be totally honest, as someone who watched That 70′s… she was 14 when she got onboard, Ashton was also not thaat much older. The kids didn’t really have too much valuable acting experience beforehand, and I have to say generally seemed to be playing “themselves”, or an extended, “large than life” version of themselves. While some really developed and got better, others, some stayed the same since they aren’t really good actors..

    I think this is especially true for Mila and Ashton… they ARE Jackie and Kelso, based on their interviews and attitudes, so this entitled attitude doesn’t surprise me one bit.

  47. Sanderspane says:

    Ha ha. I think it’s great. She told the truth. Maybe the interviewer was a total douche and insufferable. And I agree with her implied objections that his/her questions were stupid. What law says these people have to be pleasant every second? I’m not and I don’t see too much pleasantness on this board. I’d rather have them tell the truth and be a real person.

    • Godwina says:

      I’m not a fan of hers but something about her reaction sets off my sister-flags and gives me a whiff of “what the heck did he say or do to her before the interview?” Maybe he creeped her out and she just couldn’t get past it that day. The only time I’m a raging bitch is to men who get sexist on my ass. I get *real* cold. I find that hard to recover from and shut down.

  48. Molly says:

    My super sweet sister in law became an unbearable passive aggressive rhymes with witch the last two months of her pregnancy and it vanished immediately once baby was here. so I’ll cut Mila some slack.

    Also, I think asking her about the Ukraine crises is rude. She is American and if she has family back in Ukraine, speaking negatively about the situation politically could hurt them.

    • Godwina says:

      Thank you. I have Ukrainian-Canadian friends and I see what they’re going through. This shit is REAL personal and you have to be in the mood and right frame of mind to even go there. Loved ones far away under threat, losing their businesses, fighting, dying, and schisms even within one’s own family circle… After a while (I know from my own experience with horrible events) you *really* need a break even from thinking about it, not to mention talking about it. It’s a coping mechanism.

  49. G says:

    She could have simply opened with an apology. “Sorry I’m not feeling well today so forgive me if I bite your head off after every question…”

    I’ll give her a pass she’s usually lovely and funny in interviews. Being pregnant in Summer I can tell you is a BIIOOTCH!

  50. Mandy says:

    Ever since she went off on that Russian journalist for asking Justin Timberlake if he was going to return to music after making Friends With Benefits, she’s proven to be every bit as much of a b*tch as she played on That 70′s Show. She always has such a pissed off, snobby look on her face that I can’t stand.

  51. A.Key says:

    Maybe it’s the pregnant version of PMS and hormones?

    EDIT:
    “So, signing off, I tell her I’m sorry this interview seemed to upset her so much.
    No, no, it was a good interview! she says brightly.
    Can I say again what a truly wonderful actress I think Mila Kunis is?”
    HAHAHAHAHHA, THE GLORIOUS SUBTLE SHADE, I love the interviewer

  52. Mandy says:

    Pregnancy hormones are more to blame for tearing up during a Pampers commercial. Not being a mega bitch. If you act like that when you are pregnant, chances are you act like that when you aren’t.

  53. Kyra says:

    Sorry, it sounds like it was the journalist who rubbed her the wrong way. All he reports on is her responses, not how he conducted himself. He is in complete control of how he writes about her, so if he wanted to make her sound cranky and not give her the benefit of the doubt, he can. And maybe she was more comfortable talking about the details of her pregnancy with the female journalist Marie Claire assigned to interview her. It doesn’t sound like his questions were very interesting or relevant (i.e. asking about Ukraine when she’s promoting a film), either, so all she was doing was calling him on it.

  54. someone says:

    She needs to have her agent/rep sit in on these interviews with her and poke her with a stick when she starts coming across bitchy. Like a little wake up call…Otherwise she is going to burn all her bridges. She might have thought this was just a podunk interviewer from New Jersey but look at how much negative press it has gotten. No interview is too insignificant to hurt your rep if you treat it with such disregard.

  55. JessSaysNo says:

    She is pregnant. Sure, she can be a little short with Ashton or friends but she is also a working woman and should not let her attitude affect her job. As far as we know, she is not suffering any complications that would overly stress her out or piss her off. I suffered from tremendous and annoying complications that landed me in the hospital for a month. I was kind and pleasant the entire time, so in my mind she has no excuse.

  56. littlestar says:

    Ugh. I have always liked Mila Kunis, but this interview makes me think that deep down she’s a nasty person who has been very good at hiding it. Pregnancy is no excuse.

    I’m also kind of surprised that she basically says she doesn’t care about the Ukraine, or not even have a passing interest in it. I realize that she is American now, but she really doesn’t have a single opinion on the country she was born in, whose language she still speaks? Odd.

  57. G. says:

    I think I’ve said this before, but I knew a guy who worked on Jupiter Ascending and has said straight out that’s she’s unpleasant to work with. I’ve liked her previously, but this interview is a real turn off and I think my liking for her is done. There was no excuse for her being this nasty.

  58. lunchcoma says:

    I read the entire interview, and her behavior is even worse in context. The interviewer was clearly trying to cater to her and gave her all kinds of opportunities to give easy answers. Repeating old stories about her immigration experience would probably be more beneficial to Mila (who can probably rattle them off without thinking if she isn’t feeling up to it) than to the journalist (who presumably would prefer new material to a remix of quotes she’s given before). Likewise, the indie/studio film and comedy/drama questions were softballs. Obviously Mila is happy to look at scripts for any of those…and there are a million friendly, flattering ways that actors can convey that sentiment and talk all their past work up.

    Everyone has bad days, but I don’t think most of us are allowed to treat people this way when we’re feeling ill or cross. Either call in sick or suck it up and be dull but polite.

  59. I Choose Me says:

    I used to think she was sweet, grounded and cool but then I saw a few interviews with her when she was doing the Friends with Benefits press tour with JT and she was so brusque and acerbic at times, I cringed. I know that sometimes journalists ask stupid, inane questions or repeat questions another journo asked five seconds ago and that it can be super annoying but that wasn’t the case here. In one instance, the question wasn’t directed at her but at JT and she went off ‘defending’ him. That’s when I started to think that maybe her personality isn’t so nice.

    tl;dr Maybe it’s a case of douches of a feather, flock together.

  60. drea says:

    She’s with Kutcher. Shouldn’t that say something about the way she thinks? It’s not always a case of a good girl picking the wrong/bad guy. Sometimes, the girl just isn’t really good to begin with.

  61. bored_01 says:

    Been pregnant, so gonna forgive her.

    • Godwina says:

      Haven’t been pregnant and still going to forgive her. Probably a combination of a very bad pregnancy day and a journo who rubbed her the wrong way somehow before the interview even started (we’re only getting his side of the story, after all). Unprofessional, yes, but forgivable too.

  62. Marianne says:

    I mean, it probably does get annoying after awhile to be constantly asked the same question, but I think theres a better way to remind that person that the answer already exists out there. *Shrugs*. I get the vibe that she came across a bitch because he’s probably some no name journalist and she thought she could get away with it, cause who cares.

    Pregnancy can be frustrating, but come on. How hard can it actually be to answer some questions on the phone while you’re probably laying on your bed. I… I think I’ve done this a million times with my pregnant friends, and they never displayed this behavior.

    “I don’t talk about that for publication”? GIRL YOU’RE GETTING PAID FOR ANSWERING HOW YOU’RE FEELING. Heck for just 5 dollars I’d write you a whole essay of the all the things I’ve felt this morning. When did saying “Fine, thank you” become such an arduous task for a pregnant woman?!

    ‘Ashton Kutcher’s douche has really rubbed off on her.’
    I think that’s just it-she woke up and realized she’ll have to be associated with that asshole for the rest of her life

    Mila is an actress I’ve always wanted to like for herself (loved 70s show), but the truth is, she has always been bitchy, rude and entitled. I have seen it first hand several times over the years. I kept trying to excuse it, and stick up for her, but I can’t anymore. I’ve seen it, my friends and family have seen it, and I know people who have worked with her, and they all say she is stuck up and bitchy. Honestly, I think Ashton, as douchey as he is, is a friendlier person. btw, I don’t think of pregnancy as a good excuse either. I was preggers many times (had a lot of miscarriages in 2nd tri), and was barfing incessantly all through my first trimester, but I worked through most of them and was never mean or rude to anyone.

    Wow, what an a**hole!

  67. Kosmos says:

    There are NICE ways to answer questions you don’t want to answer, and nice ways to do an interview without sounding bitchy, sorry….this gives me an altogether new image of Mila Kunis, not particularly classy or thoughtful about her responses. If the interviewer had been pushing her in a way that they sometimes do that is so unpleasant, I could then see her kind of pushing him back, but there is nothing here to suggest that. She just shuts him down in a not-so-nice way. Okay, Mila, then don’t do the frigging interview. Now we all have a negative impression of you that will undoubtedly stay with us.

    This isn’t the first time she’s gone off on a journalist. I believe about one to two years ago, she was also this rude to a British female reporter. I think it was The Telegraph or The Guardian? The one you need to subscribe to read the whole interview. It was painful to read and completely unecessary. She has JUST started dating Ashton that year (2012) and the reporter didn’t even get that personal…heck she barely got a chance to do the interview at all since Mila a was so rude and dismissive. And this was also a long time entertainment journalist that pretty much lobbs softball questions to celebrities who had interviewed Ashton Kutcher before and wrote glowing positive things about him.

    Repetitive questions?

    Two words: call centre.
    Miss Thing, you don’t even know.

    But more people seem to support her than I would’ve expected. And as much as I…don’t understand Katherine Heigl’s thought processes, if she had said this, the whole world would lay the hammer down and leave her skittering along the hinterlands of cattle call country. More so. So why aren’t people clamping down on their enmity capsules, now?

  70. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I liked her comments – she is direct. I wonder whatever happened to Phil Donahue – he was the most entertaining talk show host of all time.

  71. jwoolman says:

    Yeah, she was rude. She was in a bad mood and tired of answering the same questions, forgetting that it’s the first time that particular person has asked and she needs to be patient. Consider it practice for kids.

    What’s interesting is that she could have said the same things with just a little tweaking, and not been rude at all. Just deleting some sentences or a bit of rephrasing would have worked. She needs to get some skills along that line. Or not do interviews.

  72. Maxine7 says:

    A few thoughts. One, how many female celebrities have ever been pregnant. Probably 70-80% of them. Ok, now think back to how many of them while pregnant gave interview like this. Right exactly. She may be hormonal but this seems WAY over the top of that.

    Second, I live in NJ and I love my Star Ledger but I get that it’s not the NYTimes or even. . . E! This woman is an ACTRESS and I do believe she decided to take her inner b*tch out on this poor reporter because she figured it was some little newspaper equivalent to a college newspaper that no one reads and, well. She could. I’m sure she’s felt like doing this before but restrained herself and “acted” like a human being.

    Unexcusable.

  73. Quinn says:

    She needs to take a spoonful of STFU.

  74. Marvey says:

    Very ugly woman. I’ve seen her many times in LA.

  75. Missfit says:

    Could she be acting this way cause the person interviewing her wasn’t Ellen, or some fancy magazine? Just wondering and just saying. Why wasn’t she rude to anybody else, but this person? Is it cause they’re not a famous show or popular magazine? Pregnant or not, no need to be rude. Moody, ok, but not rude. What’s wrong with her acting like that, it doesn’t seem like her usual humble self. Like you said, someone’s attitude could be rubbing off on her. I hope her celebrity status doesn’t start getting to her head, hopefully she isn’t acting cocky from it…to those who aren’t so famous.

  76. Aquila89 says:

    There are some incredibly judgmental people commenting here. She does one bad interview, and that’s enough for you to declare what a horrible, nasty, rude bitch she is. Isn’t that rude? Isn’t that nasty?
