Mila Kunis has become one of the most sought after actresses on the planet. She’s sweet, successful and sexy – the perfect combination in everyone’s eyes.

9. She Was Partially Blind
In recent years, Mila has revealed that she was partially blind in one eye for countless years.

She has since admitted that she suffered from chronic iritis but the condition has been corrected thanks to surgery.
8. Her Attraction to Justin Timberlake
Millions of women would snap at the opportunity to get frisky with Justin Tiimberlake under the sheets but Mila wasn’t exactly impressed with his skills. While filming a sex scene for Friends with Benefits, Mila actually fell asleep. “One time Justin was on Mila, kissing her, and she fell asleep,” Will Gluck, the director of the film told E! online. “We called cut and he got off and she was sleeping. So that’s how good in bed Justin Timberlake is.”
7. Her Journey to America
When Mila was 7 years old her family won a lottery that allowed them to leave Ukraine for the USA. When she came to America, she had no idea how to speak English but gradually learned the language through acting classes.
6. Knocked Up
Mila had originally auditioned for the lead role in the hit film Knocked Up but she didn’t get the part. Instead, the role was given to Katherine Heigl. The same director, however, later decided that Kunis would be perfect for another role he had available and cast her as Rachel Jansen in the hit comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall – a movie that put Mila back on the map.
5. Family Guy

4. First Kiss

I had the biggest crush on him.”
3. She’s a Liar
She may seem like the most honest person in the world but Mila has admitted that she lied to get a role on That 70’s Show. She initially told producers that she would be 18 “soon” despite only being 14 at the time. Directors eventually found out about the fib when Mila was asked to sign her contract but, by then, she had already won them all over and there was no way they were going to let her go.
2. Her Real Name
The That ’70s Show star is known all over the world as Mila Kunis but that’s not her actual birth name. Mila is short for Milena and her full name is Melina Markovna Kunis.
1. Black Swan
Kunis worked her butt off (literally) to play the role of Lily in the Black Swan. She lost 20 pounds in 4 months by working out 5 hours a day, 7 days a week and sticking to a very strict 1200-calorie per day diet. When she was finished filming the movie, she immediately went to In-N-Out where she ordered a Double Double animal style with a root beer float.
