Mila Kunis: ‘I never wanted to get married… then I found the love of my life’

mila1

Mila Kunis covers the August issue of W Magazine and I think this might be the absolute WORST editorial I’ve ever seen with Mila. Mila is extremely photogenic, but it’s almost like they were trying to make her look older and less gamine. The clothes are stuffy. Most of the photos don’t have the proper lighting. Mila’s body language radiates discomfort. It’s just awful. Doubly awful? You know why she’s doing so many interviews lately, why she got the W cover? It’s because of Jupiter Ascending, which was supposed to be her big summer movie, only it get pushed back at the last minute. She’s still got her small, indie film Third Person, but she wouldn’t have gotten the W cover for that.

Anyway, Mila’s W interview is a lot nicer than the interview she did with that poor New Jersey Star-Ledger reporter. Mila isn’t a raging a—hole in this one, which just goes to show that she’s only rude to people when she thinks they’re unimportant, when she believes no one is paying attention. Some highlights from the W piece:

Ashton was her first kiss: “My first real kiss ever was with him on the show. And when That ’70s Show had a prom, my date for the prom turned out to be my fiancé. We can honestly say that we went to prom together! Although I do think that in that episode I went home with someone else. We don’t talk about that part.”

Bitching about the paparazzi: “Every day and every night, the paparazzi are parked outside my house. Today, I had to drive through the Warner Bros. back lot on my way here, just to throw them off. They want a shot of my stomach because they need proof of my pregnancy. I don’t know why they even bother—they’ve been saying I’m pregnant for years. Now they’re right, so they won’t leave me alone.”

Working on That ’70s Show: Despite developing a dislike for the period fashions (“You will never see me in bell-bottoms ever again,” she insisted), Kunis has a deep affection for the Fox series. “Not only did it introduce me to my fiancé, but I’m so grateful that all my mistakes are recorded for posterity. I went through puberty on television! I grew five inches while I was on that show, and I had so many different eyebrow shapes! I went through everything embarrassing that a girl can go through in front of my fiancé. There’s no question that he’s seen the worst. I find that comforting.”

After Black Swan, she hates ballet. “The first time I put on a pointe shoe, I screamed. I will never dance again. It was the hardest thing I’ve done.”

She got pregnant while filming Jupiter Ascending: “I had already decided to take a year off. I have never wanted to be the person who only has business on her mind. To me, this job has always been a hobby that turned into a great profession, but I don’t eat and breathe acting…I’m sure Meryl Streep has a very different point of view. But I’m excited about being a full-time mom…Although, give me a year of not working and I’ll see how I feel.”

Ashton is the love of her life: “I never wanted to get married. From the age of 12, I prepared my parents for no marriage. Then things changed—I found the love of my life. Now my theory on weddings is: Don’t invite anyone. Do it privately and secretly. My parents are okay with that. They’re just excited that I said yes.”

Introducing Ashton’s cousins to Channing Tatum: “I promised to introduce the girls to Channing. They are so excited about meeting him.” Kunis smiled knowingly. “We all get movie star crushes. I’m marrying mine.”

[From W Magazine]

Oh, for the love of God. That “I’m marrying mine” was just too sugary and gross for my taste. It sounds like something Katie Holmes would have said when she was in the first flush of Xenu. You guys have yelled at me before for suggesting that Ashton has turned Mila into a jackass, and maybe you have a point. Maybe she’s always been this way and two jackasses found each other and fell in love.

    I think she just lost me.

  2. Lara K says:

    Oh, I don’t know. I still like her a lot.

    She’s pregnant and allowed to be sentimental. I cry at the drop of a hat during pregnancy and normally I’m dripping sarcasm and disdain…

    And I hope she and Ashton are happy together. He’s got stuff and can be douchy, but people are allowed to grow and change. I’m reserving judgement and wish them well.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      Yeah, I’m not going to hate her for one bad interview. A really really bad interview, but hopefully it won’t happen again.

      And I like Ashton and Mila together.

    • T.C. says:

      So what was her excuse when she wasn’t pregnant? You can’t use pregnancy or your gender as an excuse to be an A-hole. Millions of women go through pregnancy daily without being jerks at the work place. She was still pregnant for this interview but spilled every darn thing about her personal life because she it’s W mag not a local reporter interview. That’s just Mila being Mila.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        When was she rude before getting pregnant? I am not defending her, I thought it was her first rude interview.

      • serena says:

        Right, do not forget she was rude even before. When there were just gossip about her and Ashton she would rudely shut up everyone. Very much rudely.

      • ataylor says:

        She was previously rude to a female british reporter around the end if 2012 before OZ came out and around the gemfields campaign. This was right after the Esquire Sexiest cover. She was downright bitchy and mean to this woman who has a tendency to lob softballs at celebrities and she’s interviewed some real high profile celebs. In fact this journalist had previously interviewed Ashton and had nothing but good things to say about him. It was downright strange.

      • NKN says:

        Yes, I liken blaming being pregnant for giving a bad interview to blaming PMS for giving a bad interview or behaving poorly at work. Yet, if someone were to say that PMS was responsible for a colleague being bitchy on the job, they would be criticized for being sexist. There are plenty of pregnant women who go to work everyday and remain professional.

        To add to the pre pregnancy b—- moments of Mila… During Friends with beneifts promotion being interviewed in russian. JT is there and the Question is to him.

        What brought you into movies?” the reporter asked Timberlake, according to a translation. “What?” the actress replied, as the former boy-bander looked very confused.

        “What would you rather him do?” asked Kunis, who lived in Ukraine until she was seven. The crowd went wild. “What sort of question is that? Why are you here?”

        “Well, I’m doing my job,” the reporter responded.

        Another time a reporter wished her merry christmas (or refered to christmas) She snapped back “I’m Jewish”. Because Jewish people find it in poor taste to return well wishes during the holidays to another. (sarcasm).

        She’s in love with Ashton and excuted for her growing family. I get it.
        What doesn’t seem right is she lashes out at reporters when they’re big enough.
        This is known behavior that goes back to her 70′s show days.

        She’ll gush to Ellen about how her biscuit will be destroyed giving birth, but snaps at a reporter asking if she’s having a nice day.
        This is only becoming more high profile because she’s forgotten how to avoid the paps and is with mr. social media tmi.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        Wow. I didn’t know about them. Thank you Florc and Ataylor. I always remember one of Mila’s junket interview. I don’t remember who it was with but she had come off pretty cool there.

      • Amy says:

        10000000+ can’t stand her or him, until he moves on to someone new

    • Sabrine says:

      I don’t see anything she said that was so bad. It was just a normal interview. She’s in love – what’s so wrong with that? She’s not an a-hole. She just speaks her mind, which is totally refreshing compared to the usual boring generic interview, but I guess some people don’t like that.

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    So NOW it’s cool to discuss her pregnancy and relationship? I’m starting to believe she’s always been an a**hole.

    • T.C. says:

      +10000

      She doesn’t talk about her personal life, her love life, her pregnancy, her family, except when she does. LMAO.

      “I don’t eat and breathe acting…I’m sure Meryl Streep has a very different point of view. But I’m excited about being a full-time mom”

      So apparently she thinks Meryl Streep has never put her family or kids first before acting. Seriously?

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Yeah that Meryl comment came off really passive aggressive.

      • Jesse4 says:

        Thank you T.C.! I wasn’t sure if anyone else noticed her Meryl Streep comment. Meryl Streep has been married for years, has children and avoids the paparazzi and also avoids giving awful interviews. All the while making great movies. Why is she even mentioning her?

        It’s like shading a working mom that chooses to work. Do celebrities not think before speaking anymore?

        I really wouldn’t have found anything wrong with this interview if I hadn’t read the NJ one and also heard about her wanting to keep personal things personal. She talked about her vag getting ripped on Ellen and talks about puberty and the love of her life. Doesn’t get more personal than that. Want a personal life while still being nice? See Kerry Washington.

      • Roma says:

        I actually thought she was being self-deprecating, as in “I know I’m no Meryl Streep”.

    • NKN says:

      I don’t want to defend Mila, but given that this is a magazine and magazines typically come out a few months after an interview, she likely gave this interview to W before the New Jersey Ledger interview. I’ve written for magazines and if I interview someone in, say, January, the article will typically come out in March.

  4. Abbott says:

    But… but, don’t ask her about her relationship. That’s private. Um, what?

    I’d like to point out that while we are collectively barfing over Mila finding love with her celebrity crush, Joe Manganiello is spewing the same thing to US Weekly and People (about Sofia, not Ashton). Carry on.

  5. Kimmy says:

    Sorry, had to fight my gag reflexes there.

  6. HannahG says:

    Ashton is a movie star?? How is that? He started on television, he’s on television now. In between he’s been in a couple of films that were either goddamn awful or box office flops. That’s not what I call a movie star.

    • FLORC says:

      He gets the roles and they do flop.
      Jobs, Butterfly Effect, and The Guardian being more serious roles (which all didn’t do that well). And the rest of his movies are basically guy meets girl then meets her father or ensemble movies (that also didn’t do well).

      He made his money with 2.5 men. Maybe Mila should say tv star since he’s better known for that?

    • True says:

      Worst actor ever and he’s the highest paid on TV. Plus he does blackface all the time and thinks he’s so witty. And he made publicity out of his ONS selling their stories; he was evil toward Demi Moore. He’s so douchey to me, and hate to be harsh but this proves Mila isn’t too bright. She was so incredibly beautiful during the time she made Forgetting Sarah Marshal. Now she’s so jaded and plain weird and doesn’t take pride in her own appearance. They deserve each other! Compared with Natalie Portman, she’s really trashy and forgettable now.

      • Jane says:

        My kids were watching “Cheaper by the dozen” , is that the title? Very funny movie with Steve Martin and Ashton plays himself, a douchy actor. That was his best performance! I love the part where he says he know he’s not that talented and his face is the “moneymaker” . So fun seeing the little kids torment him 😃

  7. QQ says:

    Christ this is the Ultimate Fremdschämen … Like Im Pre Mortified by these quotes coming back five years from now when the Enquirer “catches” Ashton being who we all know him to be in a little while

  8. Erinn says:

    I went to jr high, and high school prom with my fiance. I think a lot of this interview is surprisingly sweet – I’m an emotional wreck from wedding planning, and one of my best friends weddings is this weekend as well. I think people are automatically going to read into this interview as them being jackasses – just because it’s who we’re talking about. People are allowed to change their minds though. People are allowed to grow. I’m not going to rip on them – I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

    • FLORC says:

      Erinn
      I’m reading up and down and finding a lot of comments like yours. This interview standing alone no one comes off super awful.
      The negative comments are more from a large pile of interviews over years and years where Mila acts sugary sweet and vindictive and rude to reporters. She refuses to answer questions and many points are off limits. Then a more well known interviewer will ask the same questions and ever some worse ones and Mila gives very graphic answers and nothing is off limits. Ashton has pulled this tactic for years as well.

      The hypocrasy and general poor behavior towards someone doing their job that caters to you is not right.
      But let’s wait. If they last, awesome. If not… well, some would say it’s expected from a man you get with while he’s still married and riding off a huge cheating scandal.

      • Sacred And Profane says:

        “A huge cheating scandal…”
        I was in the doctor’s waiting room yesterday, and picked up a recent copy of Woman’s Day (Australian) magazine. There was a small article saying that while married to Demi Moore, she was so desperate to keep him that she “allowed other women into their bed”, in an effort to keep him happy. Mind you, that rag is notorious for publishing outright lies and utter rubbish, but it did make him sound like a right twat. I’m not a fan/follower of any of them, And only know these two from That 70s Show, but I’m not one bit impressed. So, yeah, QQ…. Fremdschämen.

  9. Savanna says:

    “I never wanted to get married. From the age of 12, I prepared my parents for no marriage. Then things changed—I found the love of my life.” …when you were 14.

    I’m sorry but it will forever be creepy to me.

  10. serena says:

    Yep I agree with the last sentence. I believe she always was a raging ass*le and we just recently found out, she’s rude and the New Jersey Star-Ledger interview was just the last -rude- straw.

  11. ataylor says:

    “Every day and every night, the paparazzi are parked outside my house.”

    Um. No. They’re not. A friend of mine lives a few scant blocks away and not too many roads lead up to their place. The streets are also very narrow and cars can’t just park anywhere lying in wait — they would end up blocking traffic.

    But I’m glad she’s living such a private life. I barely know anything about her…other than her wedding plans, when she got pregnant, how she will be giving birth, how she’s going to raise her kid, what food she’s craving, who was her first kiss, who the love of her life is…etc…etc…etc…

    And that’s just in THIS interview. Ugh.

  12. Chris says:

    Black Swan seems like a long time ago now.

  13. Macey says:

    I think she just jinxed herself by gushing to much.
    countdown now until the Ashton cheating stories begin. Not that I want that for her, really dont care about either one of them but any time celebs start gushing heavily about their relationship, the end isn’t too far away.

  14. lisa2 says:

    She sounds like a woman in love and living the life with the man she loves. They are expecting their first child. How would people expect her to sound.

    She seem very happy.

    I can’t find anything wrong with that.

  15. Annabelle says:

    I still like her. It’s a nice interview.

  16. Samigirl says:

    I normally love her but OMG she said “fiancé” approximately 1700 times and it made my eye twitch each damn time.

  17. kibbles says:

    The more I learn about her the less I like her. I agree that she can be mean and rude to people she thinks aren’t important. With W though she is just giving a lot of corny BS responses. Now I really believe that she and Ashton are meant for each other (for the moment). Also, the “I’m marrying mine” quote makes me want to gag. Ashton is not a legit movie star and certainly nowhere near the level of even Channing Tatum. Give me a break.

  18. shannon says:

    Meh. I wish her the best, and I used to really like her. But as a former reporter for a small newspaper, she really irked me with that rude interview. She and Ashton were also incredibly rude to a TV news reporter here (in Jacksonville, FL) and basically humiliated him. Because he was doing his job, shame on him. I understand a certain degree of wanting privacy, but at the same time I’m thinking, ‘maybe these two just don’t have the right personalities for fame.’

  19. Altariel says:

    What an awful cover photo. Ok, are you done now, Mila? Bc you can shut up now.

  20. Sarah says:

    woah, this is practically exclusively about her and Ashton. yikes! she lost her privacy card with this one.

    i also feel its like crapping all over Macauly Culkin. She was with him for a very long ime (eight years or something?) he does not have to be the love of her life, but please dont say that publicy, i find that trashy. also the way she talks about Ashton and her on that 70s show makes me think that she either is compensating for things not going well in their relationship or that she has ALWAYS been in love with him and never with the guys she was with. which is probably what Macauly will read out of this.

  21. Jillian says:

    I don’t get the hate that Mila and Ashton attract but it must made Demi feel so good.

  22. Sandy says:

    In a few years, no one will remember who Mila and Ashton are, or care!

  23. dancinnancy says:

    I agree that these aren’t her best photos, but I love her eye makeup on the cover. So amazing!

  24. diva says:

    They are trying really hard to make the public believe this is “true love”.

  25. Mia4S says:

    Yes please go be a full time Mom…please! I am sure your kid will love it and the rest of us will somehow survive without your “acting”.

    Count down to a year off followed by interviews pimping out mommy-hood to get herself back in the spotlight.

    Oh and when (yes when) he cheats, it will be ugly.

  26. Jes1632 says:

    We get it you Mila you have a fiancé and you’re getting married. Not every other word has to be fiancé

  27. G says:

    Oh man my love for her ain’t dead yet but it’s sure on life support! She said “my fiance” like ten times?? That just bugs.

  28. word says:

    Photoshop makes naturally beautiful women and turns them into something less beautiful. Stop photoshop !

  29. Angie says:

    So after jumping down the throat of the NJ Star Ledger reporter she gives W Magazine an interview like this. Yeah I’m over Mila. I don’t even care about her gushy comments about douchey Ashton. I’m disgusted because it’s obvious now that she treated that reporter poorly because he wrote for a small paper. SMDH.

  30. nathan says:

    i think it’s important to point out this interview was done way back in March about two months before she even did the Marie claire interview. If you read the Marie claire interview you’ll see shes come down from the engagement high some what. She spends the entire interview calling Ashton her Significant other and shes much more pragmatic than she is in this interview.

    Here is something she said in Parade in late feburary. She was already engaged at that point.

    You recently turned 30, what do you know now that you didn’t ten years ago?

    “Everything! I think the twenties is where you make a lot of mistakes and your thirties is where you implement all of the lessons you’ve learned and you hope by forty you’ve figured it out. So I think there’s a lot of things I didn’t know, and I still don’t know today that in forty years I’ll be like ‘I didn’t know any of this.’ “I like the person that I am today, and I’m proud of the person that I am today. When I was 20 it was just a very different me. Who I was from 20 to 25 was the same person, who I was from 25 to 30 was a very different person. From 26 to 30 is where I grew into myself, I really did. Twenty to 26: same person. I mean, in a great way! But I was just having fun and going through life, and doing things. But at 26 I was like there’s a life that I can be living, and I want to experience it and devour it and I made some horrible mistakes, and I fell and had an amazing family to pick me up and I grew from them and I am very proud of the person that I am today.

  31. Charle says:

    You can’t have your cake and eat it too!

    Who needs the National Enquirer when she is practically telling everybody left, right and center about her life and even the birth of your unborn child and has the nerve to call out on the paparazzi or the Star-Ledger interviewer. Even her ‘fiance’ has his own twitter account so so much for wanting a ‘private’ life.

    So what was Macaulay Culking to her? A step down to her very own ”movie star”? Haha!

    I used to like her but not now.

  32. JH says:

    Damn.
    First she is inappropriately rude to one reporter, then she lays on thick the gnarly verbal PDA. It does seem Katie Holmes-ish. Quite a dichotomy.

  33. Marianne says:

    She may be less – aholey…but she sure loves complaining a lot. Ugggghhh I’ll never wear bell bottoms again, Ugggghhh I’ll never dance again. Excuse me while I eyeroll.

    I do think the whole pap/pregnancy thing does suck though. I mean, I hate that Just Jared will always post things as “Pregnant Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher blah blah blah”….like I think we all get she’s pregnant. Don’t have to keep telling us.

  34. Hayley says:

    She looks like Marion Cotillard in those pictures.

  35. Norman says:

    I think she is getting tired of the whole acting shtick if you ask me.

    • True says:

      She’s been complaining about it forever, about how actors have no control.

      • whateveryouwantittobe says:

        Imagine if every few months we (non celebrities) sent out newsletters to our employers, friends and community talking about how unfair certain aspects of our jobs are and dishing all the dirt on our private lives, our most embarrassing moments and fears for our postpartum vaginas. Accompanied by a bad photo shoot.

        Mind you I guess social media fills that role for some. But it is fucking absurd when you really put it in perspective.

  36. PennyLane says:

    “I had already decided to take a year off….”

    Ugh, now I hate actors. I would LOVE to take a year off (and could afford it because I live below my means), but if I did that, I don’t know if I could ever get a job in my field again.

  37. Annieb says:

    Her character Jackie went to prom with Hyde and home with Kelso, Ashton’s character.

  38. Naddie says:

    This one needs to convince me, because she always plays the same perky-cute-sexy-cheerful character in every film.

  39. Addie says:

    I’m not sure if any of you remember back to the Ashton – Demi heydays but Demi talked about him in a very similar way. AShton was her soul mate, Ashton was the love of her life…yada yada yada. I think AShton kind of puts a spell on the ladies . Weird the way she keeps calling him her fiance as well.

    • WN says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Somehow dbag Ashton convinces the ladies that he’s their soul mate. Maybe he’s one of those types who convinces each woman that he’s never felt this way before and it elevates the partner’s level of interest (I’m thinking of J Lo here with her “I’ve never been in love like this” angle with each new guy.

  40. Josefa says:

    I think that other interview Mila did was inexcusable, she was undeniably rude. But I wouldn’t assume she’s rude just to unimportant people because of that. She’s pregnant, and even if she wasn’t there are days where one just feels… annoyed. I’ve been extremely rude to call center agents who call me offering me products. And that’s not because I find them unimportant – but because I got an already annoying call on a day I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I insist, her behavior was wrong, but I wouldn’t say she was like that just because the publication was smaller.

    As for the ed, eh. Terrible. I hate when magazines try to make actresses look like something they are not. Mila is a young girl with an exotic beauty. This grim vintage’y look just makes her look old and haggard.
