Biography

Mila Kunis (born Milena Kunis 14.8.1983)

Mila Kunis is an American actress, perhaps best known for her role providing the voice of Meg Griffin on the cartoon Family Guy. She became better known, however, with her role in the Oscar-winning movie Black Swan.

Mila Kunis: Childhood

Mila Kunis was born in Chernitvtsi, a city in the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union. The Kunis family moved to LA in California, in 1991. Mila Kunis was seven years old at the time. The Kunis family are Jewish and Mila has previously explained that anti-Semitism was one of the reasons that the family left the Soviet Union.

Mila's mother, Elvira, is a physics teacher, as well as a drug store manager and her father, Mark, is a mechanical engineer.

Mila Kunis: Career

Mila Kunis started to take acting lessons at the age of nine, at the Beverley Hills studio. It was here that she met Susan Curtis, who is still her manager to this day. She soon started to get work in magazine adverts and TV commercials for products such as Barbie and Payless Shoes.

Kunis' debut TV role was in the soap opera Days of Our Lives. This was followed up with small roles in 7th Heaven, Santa with Muscles and Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, with Rick Moranis. She also played the role of a young Gia in the Angelina Jolie film, Gia.

Mila Kunis then landed the role of Jackie Burkhart in the sitcom That '70s Show. The show also featured Ashton Kutcher. The show was a huge success and became the second longest-running live action sitcom on the Fox network.

In 1999, Mila Kunis started playing the role of Meg Griffin on Family Guy. The series was created by Seth MacFarlane for Fox Broadcasting Company. The list of voice actors also includes Seth Green. Mila was nominated for an Annie award for her voice acting.

The next few years were not a huge success for Kunis She starred in a number of poorly-received films, such as Moving McAllister with Jon Heder, After Sex with Zoe Saldana and Boot Camp, with Gregory Smith.

The following year, Mila Kunis played a role in the film Extract, with Ben Affleck and Jason Bateman. The film was well received and grossed over $10 million.

2010 saw Mila Kunis starring in The Book of Eli, along with Denzel Washington. She was then chosen to feature in the comedy Date Night, with Tina Fey and Steve Carell.

In 2011, Black Swan was released, to largely glowing reviews. The film also starred Natalie Portman and won a number of Academy Awards in the 2011 Oscars. She was also cast in Friends with Benefits, with Justin Timberlake.

To Mila, I just have to say that you are, without a doubt, the MOST beautiful actress in the business. I've watched you progress from 'That 70's Show'(which was an awesome sit-com) to your current uprising in the industry. I had complete faith that you would end up in motion pictures. Your role in "The Book of Eli" was incredible. I hope they make a sequel(is that spelled right, not sure)since they left it open at the end for your inevitable return in a starring role. If not as this character, surely it will be as another. It's safe too say, in my opinion, that you will continue on to great success. And did I mention that you are "DROP DEAD, KILLIN' ME, FREAKIN' GORGEOUS.....have a great time in your future and I wish you the best success and happiness. Thanks, Steve.
