Mila Kunis, the star of Oz: Great and Powerful, says she will not star in Fifty Shades of Grey.
Mila Kunis became everyone's favorite Hollywood actress this week, after helping a clearly terrified rookie journalist through an interview for BBC Radio 1. The down-to-earth star was pretty much everyone's favorite Hollywood actress anyway, but, well, this just sealed it didn't it.
Kunis is coming to the end of a long promotional campaign for Sam Raimi's big-budget 3-D movie 'Oz: Great and Powerful' which hits cinemas worldwide today (March 8, 2013). The movie, a prequel to the classic 'Wizard of Oz', follows the story of a small-time magician, played by James Franco, who arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man, or a great one. Kunis plays the wicked witch Theodora in one of her most high profile roles to date, though the former That 70's Show actress has been linked with the hottest part in Hollywood for the past 12 months.
Kunis is the bookmaker's second-favorite for the part of Anastasia Steele in the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie. Though all signs point towards Gilmore Girls actress Alexis Bledel, Mila appears to be the people's choice, though she insists audiences will not see her in the raunchy drama, an adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling novel. "You will not see me in 50 Shades of Grey. I'm so sorry!" she told Contactmusic.com, adding, "I will not be in 50 Shades of Grey. I promise." Well, that's that then.
Kunis certainly appeared to throw herself in her latest role, even doing her own flying scenes. "I'm still whole and in one piece. It's actually not that bad," she said of the stunts, adding, "The hardest part about any scene that requires wires is the amount of time you spend on them. So being wired is not hard, and being flung 35 feet in the air isn't hard."
