The new comedy Bad Moms stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn as three stressed-out mothers who abandon their responsibilities and go on a self-indulgent binge, running afoul of a perfect-mom played by Christina Applegate.
Kunis has a 2-year-old daughter with actor Ashton Kutcher, and they're expecting a second child soon. So she feels like she can identify with her character's need to escape a particularly horrible day. "I think we all have those kinds of days," she says. "Actually it happens almost every day. Talking to my friends it will be like, 'Oh wait, me too! Let me tell you about what happened today!"'
As for being a bad mom, Kunis admits that she has had her moments. She remembers one day when she decided to take her daughter Wyatt to visit Kutcher at work. "To go anywhere, you have to pack all this stuff up in anticipation of everything going horribly wrong with the first baby," she laughs. "I was like, 'I did it!' I put her in the car. Like, I high-five myself. Then I'm driving down the 101 thinking, 'Oh my God, I'm doing really good today.' She was being really quiet, and I was like, 'Oh, let me look in the rearview mirror to make sure everything's OK.' And I look, and she's happy as can be, but just not nearly strapped in. She's just fine in her car seat, but nothing, no strap whatsoever. And I think I just turned white."
