Mila Kunis- GQ’s ‘Knockout’ & ‘Man of the Year’

Mila Kunis is not just beautiful, she’s also been described as “one of the guys.” The ‘Black Swan’ actress is easy going, doesn’t take herself or career very seriously, and is said to have quite brass humour. This unique combination of looks and attitude has awarded her the title of ‘Knockout Of the Year” in GQ magazine.

Kunis, Jay-Z, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Fassbender, and Justin Timberlake are all featured in GQ’s ‘Men of the Year’ special issues… yes, that’s right. Kunis is the sole female in this category.

In the GQ interview, Kunis explains that she initially expressed interest in acting because her English was poor and extracurricular classes were a good way to make friends… and less expensive than a babysitter.

“My English was a little janky,” she explains of moving to Los Angeles from Chernovtsy in the second grade. “I didn’t have very many friends. And there was this place advertised on the radio as a place for kids to meet other kids—an acting class. My parents couldn’t afford a babysitter. They said, ‘Great, that takes up our Saturday.’”

Now, the Ukrainian beauty has been acting steadily for over 10 years with success in both film and TV (‘That 70’s Show’ and ‘Family Guy’).

“I love what I do, but my theory is that it’s people who doubt what they do and want to prove it to you, they’re like ‘It’s art. I create art. It’s art, art, art,’” she said. “I’m like, Holy s___, are you f___ing kidding me? I run around and pretend I’m someone else for twelve hours; I record ‘Family Guy’ (she voices Meg). Then I get to go home and watch ‘Jersey Shore’.”

The full interview with Mila Kunis appears in the December issue of GQ, hitting the shelves on November 22nd.
