MILA Kunis wasn’t popular with men during her school years.
The actress admits her schoolmates were unhappy because she didn’t look as glamorous in class as she did on the cover of magazines.
“I think at, like, 16 or 17 I was on the cover of Stuff, which was a horrible thing to do because then you have these boys who assume that you look this way when you don’t. It was enhanced,” she said.
“So I showed up to class, you know, out of the shower and in sweatpants, which is the way I look when I show up to work at 6am and is not necessarily the way that I look when I walk out of the hair-and-make-up chair at 10am But I think for a 15, 16, 17-year-old kid, that’s a hard thing to fully understand. It’s like, ‘Why are this girl’s t*ts not popping out and why does she have no make-up on?’ It’s uncomfortable.
“I wasn’t [popular with guys], because in real life I didn’t wear push-up bras. They were like, ‘You don’t look like you do in those pictures. This is false advertisement.’ And I was like, ‘I know, tell me about it.’ I don’t even think the boys spoke to me.”
Mila recently revealed she she can’t understand why she’s so desirable.
“I actually live a very mediocre lifestyle,” she said.
“After doing [That ‘70s Show] for eight years and [Family Guy] for more than a decade, you are, financially speaking, in a very lucky position where you don’t have to work for the sake of working.
“And I decided to take advantage of that. I don’t live lavishly, so it’s not like I have 20 assistants and travel privately and shop every day.
“I decided to step back and do things not just for the sake of doing them, but because I believe in them and I want to do them.”
“I solely wanted do films that inspire me, and to work with people who make me better. I wanted to just surround myself with people who I think are better than I am, whether they’re actors or directors or producers, so that I could learn from them,” Kunis adds. “And I think that’s pretty much what I’ve done. I think that if I hadn’t done it that way, then I would’ve just stunted myself.”
