Ashton Kutcher Opens SAG Awards By Calling Out Trump's Immigration Ban
Huffington Post - 25 days
Celebrities initially came out to the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards to celebrate the amazing performances television and film had to offer this year. But, thankfully, they ended up using the stage to spread a message of hope in a time of sorrow.  Actors, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the cast of “Orange Is the New Black,” took the time to call out President Donald Trump’s executive order, aiming to block the entry of Syrian refugees and impose a de facto ban on travelers coming from several Muslim-majority countries. The first to take on the issue was Ashton Kutcher, who opened the award show with a pro-immigration message that had the crowd roaring.  “Good evening, fellow SAG-AFTRA members, and everyone at home, and everyone in airports that belong in my America,” he said. “You are a part of the fabric of who we are. And we love you and we welcome you.” WATCH: Ashton Kutcher opens #SAGawards with pro-immigration statement pic.twitter.com/dxevjHyjaz — Hollywood ...

Ashton Kutcher Gets Real About The Struggle Of Choosing A Baby Name
Huffington Post - 3 months
Ashton Kutcher is no stranger to the baby name game. Though he and his wife, Mila Kunis, named their daughter Wyatt Isabelle, they’re keeping silent about the name they’ve chosen for baby number two ― a boy, who is reportedly due in mere weeks.  Appearing on “Conan” Wednesday, Kutcher talked about the process of choosing a baby name and why it can be so hard for parents.  “We have a name dialed in that we’ve had for awhile,” the actor said when Conan O’Brien asked if he’d chosen a name for his son. “But the problem is if you get the name too soon, suddenly there’s slight trepidation around the name.” Another baby naming challenge is finding a name that doesn’t remind you of someone you dislike, O’Brien said. “I had a really good name,” the talk show host said. “I like the name Miles and my wife was like ‘I knew a Miles, he was an asshole.’” “That is a real thing!” Kutcher said. “You don’t want names of people that remind you of people who used to beat you u ...

These Traditionally 'Boy' Names Are Becoming Popular For Girls
Huffington Post - 4 months
We all know about the once traditionally male names like Madison, Addison, Harper and Alexis that have become popular girls’ names. Then there are the newer names crossing the gender divide toward the girls’ side. These names may still be more widely used for boys, but they have now moved into the Social Security Administration’s top 1,000 baby names for girls: Sawyer, Hunter, Ryan, Dallas, Royal, and Ellis are the most notable. More obscure than these, but way more newsworthy, are the boys’ names below the top 1,000 that are now being used for sizable numbers of girls. Nameberry has compiled a list of names traditionally associated with boys that are moving “girlward” in recent years.  In a few cases, there are powerful celebrity influences nudging these boys’ names “girlward,” such as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds naming their first daughter James or Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher naming their little girl Wyatt. Read the list below for more examples, along with the numb ...

Mila Kunis Is 'Done Compromising' Because Of Workplace Sexism
Huffington Post - 4 months
Mila Kunis thinks “change isn’t coming fast enough” when it comes to sexism at work.  On Wednesday, the 33-year-old actress published a powerful essay on A Plus detailing the sexism she’s faced throughout her career. Kunis described multiple times her talent has been blatantly undermined by producers and other people in the industry simply because she’s a woman.  Kunis wrote about the first time she confronted workplace sexism. During a photoshoot for a men’s magazine, for which she refused to pose half-naked for the shoot, the producer told her she’d “never work in this town again.”  “What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace,” Kunis wrote on A Plus (which is owned by Kunis’ husband Ashton Kutcher). “It’s what we are conditioned to believe ― that if we speak up, our livelihoods will be threatened; that standing our ground will lead to our demise. We don’t want to be kicked o ...

Ashton Kutcher Freaks Out On Laura Prepon After She Forgets To Tell Him She's Engaged
Huffington Post - 5 months
It appears Ashton Kutcher just got a taste of his own medicine. When Kutcher joined Kelly Ripa as co-host on “Live with Kelly” Friday morning, he was looking forward to interviewing his friend and former “That ‘70s Show” co-star Laura Prepon. But not for reasons you’d assume. The actor was actually eager to yell at Prepon for not telling him about her recent engagement to their mutual friend, Ben Foster. “She just announced this engagement. I had to find out in the news! And she’s my friend, and it’s weird like that!” Kutcher told Ripa.  He went on to explain that when he and Mila Kunis got engaged, Prepon thought it was “crazy”; the trio had been friends for 20 years yet she didn’t know they were an item. But, as Kutcher explained, Prepon and Foster have been friends for two decades too, so their engagement is equally as shocking.  When Prepon came out for her interview, she hugged Kutcher, who mumbled, “I am so pissed off at you.”  “Pre, this is unac ...

Gabrielle Union Is Glowing In This No-Makeup Selfie
Huffington Post - 5 months
The #NoMakeup movement is gaining steam, y’all.  On Tuesday, Gabrielle Union posted a makeup-free selfie on Snapchat with a shoutout to the leading lady of the #NoMakeup movement herself, Alicia Keys. “No makeup, head wrap, hey Alicia Keys I see you,” Union wrote. Naturally, Union looks flawless with glowing skin and freckles. While Union was back in full makeup on Snapchat yesterday, her posts reflect a shift toward barefaced beauty among celebs. Though stars (and plenty of non-famous women) have made a point of going makeup-free before, Keys really ramped things up in May with a simple, powerful essay about society’s unrealistic beauty expectations and her pledge to live naturally on red carpets and beyond. The #NoMakeup movement has also made inroads with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Mila Kunis and Kim Kardashian. Paltrow posted a positively radiant makeup-free selfie last week, proving her impossibly posh skincare routine is doing its job. “I have been ...

5 Bourbon Brands That Saved the U.S. Whiskey Business
Huffington Post - 5 months
In celebration of #BourbonRebirth, I've named the 15 most-important brands (not distilleries) for bringing bourbon back. My criteria for creating this list was who made the biggest impact through sales, quality, marketing, innovation and trendsetting since 1980, a year this beloved spirit was left for dead. Fellow bourbon author Michael R. Veach consulted on this list, but the rankings are my own. These are the top five. Learn who was 15-11 and 10-6. This post originally appeared on FredMinnick.com. 5. Jim Beam The Jim Beam brand fought bourbon's fight when other brand executives had forsaken the spirit for vodka and gin investments. They pumped money into advertising, decanters and unique retail partnerships, such as with military bases, when many others couldn't figure out how to make bourbon work. No brand has done more for bourbon since Prohibition than Jim Beam. But since this list represents the works since 1980, it's No. 5. In 1982, according to the Louisville Courier Jou ...

Kunis played the girlfriend of Wahlberg's character. When MacFarlane first conceived the project, he considered Kunis too young for the role. However, the film remained in development for several years and when it was finally ready to begin production, he ended up casting her. Ted has received generally positive reviews from critics and was a commercial success, grossing $549 million worldwide. Drew McWeeny of HitFix wrote that Kunis "brings some lovely subtle grace notes to a role that easily could have just been 'the pushy girlfriend.
  • 2010
    Age 26
    During the summer of 2010 Kunis served with Randy Jackson as the Master of Ceremonies for the 9th Annual Chrysalis Foundation Benefit.

    More Details Hide Details
    In 2010, she was featured in the "Women We Love" segment in Esquire with an accompanied video.
    More Details Hide Details
    Kunis was nominated for multiple awards, including her first Golden Globe, for the 2010 film Black Swan.
    More Details Hide Details She played a rival ballet dancer to the main character, played by Natalie Portman. Director Darren Aronofsky cast Kunis in the film based on her performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and on the recommendation of co-star and close friend Natalie Portman. She underwent a training regimen that included cardiovascular exercise, a 1,200-calorie a day diet (she lost 20 pounds that she regained after filming ended), and ballet classes for four hours a day, seven days a week. During the demanding production, she suffered injuries including a torn ligament and a dislocated shoulder. Black Swan received widespread acclaim from critics and was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The film grossed over $106.9 million in the United States and Canada while grossing over $329 million worldwide. Reviews of Kunis's performance were positive, with Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter stating, "Kunis makes a perfect alternate to Portman, equally as lithe and dark but a smirk of self-assurance in place of Portman's wide-eyed fearfulness." Guy Lodge of In Contention also praised Kunis, saying, "it's the cool, throaty-voiced Kunis who is the surprise package here, intelligently watching and reflecting her co-star in such a manner that we're as uncertain as Nina of her ingenuousness." Kunis's performance won her the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress at the 67th Venice International Film Festival, and earned her Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress.
    Kunis was also cast in a minor role in the 2010 comedy film Date Night, starring Tina Fey and Steve Carell.
    More Details Hide Details She garnered several positive reviews for her performance. Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune concluded her performance with James Franco helped save the film and gave it "a shot in the arm."
    In 2010, she starred alongside Denzel Washington in the action film The Book of Eli.
    More Details Hide Details Although the film received mixed reviews, it performed well at the box office, grossing over $157 million worldwide. Film critic Richard Roeper praised Kunis's performance, calling it a "particularly strong piece of work". Several other reviews were equally positive, including that of Pete Hammond of Boxoffice magazine, who wrote that she's "ideally cast in the key female role" Even reviewers who didn't necessarily like the film complimented her performance, such as James Berardinelli, who wrote that "the demands of the role prove to be within her range, which is perhaps surprising considering she has been thus far pigeonholed into more lightweight parts", and Colin Covert of the Star Tribune, who wrote that she "generated a spark and brought a degree of determination to her character, developing an independent female character who's not always in need of rescuing." Other critics, such as Claudia Puig of USA Today felt she was miscast, noting that "she looked as if she dropped in from a Ray-Ban commercial". Kunis received another Teen Choice Award nomination for her performance.
  • 2009
    Age 25
    In 2009, she appeared in the comedy film Extract with Ben Affleck and Jason Bateman.
    More Details Hide Details The film received mostly positive reviews, and grossed $10.8 million at the box office. Roger Ebert, while critical of the film itself, wrote that Kunis "brings her role to within shouting distance of credibility." Director Mike Judge commented that part of what was surprising to learn about Kunis was her ability to make references to the cult animation film Rejected. Judge said: "As beautiful as Mila is, you could believe that maybe she would cross paths with you in the real world." After seeing Kunis perform in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Judge wanted to cast her in the role of Cindy in Extract: "I just thought, 'Wow, this girl's perfect.' And she really wanted to do it, which was fantastic." Kunis herself stated that "I'm a huge fan of Mike Judge's from Office Space, so I was, like, 'Okay, this is a very easy decision.' I told them I would do anything needed to be in this production– like craft service, or, say, acting."
  • 2008
    Age 24
    Also in 2008, Kunis portrayed Mona Sax, an assassin, alongside Mark Wahlberg in the action film Max Payne, based on the video game of the same name.
    More Details Hide Details Kunis underwent training in guns, boxing, and martial arts for her role. Max Payne was relatively successful at the box office, grossing $85 million worldwide but was panned by critics, with several reviewers calling Kunis miscast. Travis Estvold of Boise Weekly wrote that she was "horribly miscast as some sort of undersized, warble-voiced crime boss". Director John Moore defended his choice of Kunis saying, "Mila just bowled us over.. She wasn't an obvious choice, but she just wears Mona so well. We needed someone who would not be just a fop or foil to Max; we needed somebody who had to be that character and convey her own agenda. I think Mila just knocked it out of the park." She was nominated for another Teen Choice Award for her role in the film.
    Kunis starred as Rachel Jansen in the 2008 comedy film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, co-produced by Judd Apatow.
    More Details Hide Details The role, which she won after unsuccessfully auditioning for Knocked Up, entailed improvisation on her part. The film garnered positive reviews, and was a commercial success, grossing $105 million worldwide. Kunis's performance was well-received; Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal praised her "fresh beauty and focused energy", while James Berardinelli wrote that she is "adept with her performance and understands the concept of comic timing". She was nominated for a Teen Choice Award. In an interview, Kunis credited Apatow with helping her to expand her career from That '70s Show.
    Her breakout film role came in 2008, playing Rachel in the romantic comedy-drama Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

  • 2006
    Age 22
    In October 2006, she began filming Boot Camp (originally titled Straight Edge).
    More Details Hide Details The film was not released in theatres in the United States, but was released on DVD on August 25, 2009.
  • 2005
    Age 21
    In 2005, Kunis co-starred with Jon Heder in Moving McAllister, which was not released theatrically until 2007.
    More Details Hide Details The film received generally poor reviews and had a limited two-week run in theaters. She followed up with After Sex starring alongside Zoe Saldana, who had also appeared in Get Over It.
  • 2004
    Age 20
    In 2004, Kunis starred in the film adaptation Tony n' Tina's Wedding.
    More Details Hide Details Although the film was shot in 2004, it did not have a theatrical release until 2007. Most critics did not like the film, which mustered a 25% approval from Rotten Tomatoes. DVD talk concluded that "fans would be much better off pretending the movie never happened in the first place".
  • TEENAGE
  • 2002
    Age 18
    Kunis began dating actor Macaulay Culkin in 2002.
    More Details Hide Details During their relationship, there were rumors of the couple getting married, but Kunis denied them. In an interview with BlackBook magazine, Kunis stated that marriage is "not something that's important to me". Kunis said she tried her best to protect her and Culkin's privacy, noting that "We don't talk about it to the press. It's already more high profile than I want it to be." When asked if it was difficult to stay out of the tabloids and press, Kunis responded: "I keep my personal life as personal as I physically, mentally, possibly can." Asked if that is difficult she said, "I don't care. I will go to my grave trying. It is hard, but I'll end up going to a bar that's a hole in the wall. I won't go to the 'it's-happening' place."
    She followed that up in 2002, by starring in the straight-to-DVD horror film American Psycho 2 alongside William Shatner, a sequel to the 2000 film American Psycho.
    More Details Hide Details American Psycho 2 was panned by critics, and later, Kunis herself expressed embarrassment over the film.
  • 2001
    Age 17
    In 2001, she appeared in Get Over It opposite Kirsten Dunst.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1999
    Age 15
    In 1999, Kunis replaced Lacey Chabert in the role of Meg Griffin on the animated sitcom Family Guy, created by Seth MacFarlane for Fox.
    More Details Hide Details Kunis won the role after auditions and a slight rewrite of the character, in part due to her performance on That '70s Show. When Kunis auditioned for the role, she was called back by MacFarlane, who instructed her to speak slower. He then told her to come back another time and enunciate more. Once she claimed that she had it under control, MacFarlane hired her. MacFarlane added: "What Mila Kunis brought to it was in a lot of ways, I thought, almost more right for the character. I say that Lacey did a phenomenal job, but there was something about Mila – something very natural about Mila. She was 15 when she started, so you were listening to a 15-year-old. Oftentimes with animation they'll have adult actors doing the voices of teenagers and they always sound like Saturday morning voices. They sound oftentimes very forced. She had a very natural quality to Meg that really made what we did with that character kind of really work." Kunis was nominated for an Annie Award in the category of Voice Acting in an Animated Television Production in 2007. She also voiced Meg in the Family Guy Video Game! Kunis described her character as "the scapegoat."
    She won two consecutive Young Star Awards as Best Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series in 1999 and 2000 for her performances.

  • 1998
    Age 14
    In 1998, Kunis was cast as Jackie Burkhart in the Fox sitcom That '70s Show.
    More Details Hide Details All who auditioned were required to be at least 18 years old; Kunis, who was 14 at the time, told the casting directors she would be 18 but did not say when. Though they eventually figured it out, the producers still thought Kunis was the best fit for the role. That '70s Show ran for eight seasons.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1994

At the age of 10, Kunis auditioned for but failed to get the role of a Russian Jewish girl who moves to America in the film Make a Wish, Molly.

  • 1991
    Age 7
    In 1991, when she was seven years old, her family moved to Los Angeles, California, with $250. "That was all we were allowed to take with us.
    More Details Hide Details My parents had given up good jobs and degrees, which were not transferable.

Kunis comes from a Jewish family and has cited antisemitism in the former Soviet Union as one of several reasons for her family's move to the United States. She has stated that her parents "raised her Jewish as much as they could," although religion was suppressed in the Soviet Union. On her second day in Los Angeles, Kunis was enrolled at Rosewood Elementary School, not knowing a word of English. She later recalled: "I blocked out second grade completely. I have no recollection of it. I always talk to my mom and my grandma about it. It was because I cried every day. I didn't understand the culture. I didn't understand the people. I didn't understand the language. My first sentence of my essay to get into college was like, 'Imagine being blind and deaf at age seven.' And that's kind of what it felt like moving to the States."
