Flowers from this Girl’s Life…
Mila Kunis migrated from the Soviet Union to the United States at the impressionable age of seven. As a little chit of a girl she must have been overwhelmed by the supermarket culture and size-is-everything mentality of the Land of Opportunity. Yet she adjusted pretty damn quickly to the novel situation of a different nation and a strange environment and soon was taking up acting classes in her school as an extra-curricular activity.
She first met her fiancé and future hubby, Ashton Kutcher, on That 70’s Show. She was to marry him after his split with Demi Moore (who was old enough to be his great aunt) and currently sports a baby bump (and hey it’s going to be a girl!)
Kunis left her original home due to the anti-Jewish sentiments prevalent there. She came from a traditional Jewish family that observes all the rituals of Judaism and in Russia, religious freedom was virtually non-existent under the ideology of Communism. The freedom to practice your faith is something for which the United States is worth all the admiration in the world.
She has played versatile roles and skits in various movies. Till now she has become a top icon, and famed name on the silver screen, as well a “televisionary” with attitude and ample assets.
For her highly popular movie Black Swan she played a perfectionist ballerina girl. The prep phase was full of storm and stress. She took sessions for a total of four hours daily all week long and went on a starvation regime and thus lost almost two dozen pounds of fat in the process. Mila suffered injuries due to the sheer brutality of the diet and exercise program. But she is a big girl and recovered in no time.
Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton don’t like to end up as fodder for the tabloids and so they have kept their lives under wraps. They are probably the most secluded and super-insulated couple in all of Hollywood. Scandal mongering and smutty stuff are phrases that are nonexistent in their dictionary.
Biography of a Babelicious Bird…
An All-American actress, Mila Kunis began her trip in the tough ways of the mean old world in a foreign land that was virtually inhospitable for all alien religions except atheism which was the state doctrine. The USSR was still a totalitarian system that exercised repression when she lived there. At the tender age of seven, her parents decided that they had reached the limits of their patience with the powers that be and journeyed to the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Mila must have felt that it was more like good riddance to bad rubbish!
The leap (of faith) from the Ukraine to Los Angeles was quite an eye opener. While her mother and father had superior educational degrees, they worked as a pharmacist and cab driver respectively in the new environs. Yet there was the additional sense of a respectable position in society and furthermore there was no persecution. To this day, Mila doesn’t like to talk about the bitter experiences she had to undergo in the Land of the Commies.
The acting classes she took led to a natural ability that surfaced in the course of time. From them on she was on a roll that has never ended. Mila continues to be an A-List actress like her hubby dearest who is an A-List actor. That 70’s Show was a popular number. Then it was as a voiceover for Family Guy that she excelled. Baywatch with Pamela Anderson was a whole new scene in body confidence and fun in the sun. Her role in the Angelina Jolie model story “Gia” garnered much praise from different quarters.
The crossover from Telly-Land to Movie Magic was not smooth. There were many teething troubles and false starts before she finally made her mark as a solid woman with a steely grip on the medium. Spider Man’s girlfriend Kirsten Dunst appeared with her in Get Over It. Slowly ever so imperceptibly her films evolved from shaky-breaky acts to flawless forms of flow with a flourish. Her trio of After Sex, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Max Payne took a bit of practice which was to take her places later on. Finally, with Black Swan she completed her masterpiece. The grueling physical and psychological torture she had to patiently go through left her wrecked. Yet she emerged even through this hell on earth.
She is currently one of the sexiest and most wanted females on the planet with its billions of women. And while she is glad that she has been given the accolade, she admits that she takes such things with a grain of salt. After all, only those people are sexy who are not very self-conscious about their bodies. Worth $11 million, she has a great job which she loves, a handsome and manly husband and a baby girl on the way. What more could Mila want?
She avoids social online media since they are so superficial and a welcome sign for stalkers of every ilk. And she voted for Barack Obama. Due to the Republican Party’s demeaning attitude to feminism and their over-zealous and fanatical nature in matters of religion, Mila finds them not a group worthy of her support.
And Lo and behold! She dated the bad boy of Home Alone fame, Macaulay Culkin for awhile before hooking up on a permanent basis with Ashton Kutcher. Today she is content and living the good life.

- Mila took up acting because it was the fun thing to do and furthermore she wanted to get away from those boring old lectures in the educational setup she was attending.
- As a sex symbol she says that there is more to a person than just making it to the Top 100 list of the FHM pinups.
- Kunis wants the future delivery of her baby to be very hands on. Ashton will be there to buck her up and so will her personal physician.
- Mila says that she and her significant other don’t believe in any wild partying. They would rather lie at home on a settee and watch movies along with some popcorn to eat. And they prefer home cooking to any of the junk food you find out there.
And so Mila Kunis is the Woman who has worked wonders on screen and off screen…
May she and Ashton be the proud parents of a baby daughter in the future and engage in her childrearing so that she even excels her rich and famous mother!
