At just 13 years of age, Mila Kunis began her career in Hollywood, and would spend the next 20 years of her life blazing a trail of success that has led her to become one of the most recognizable faces in the movie business. Her work, both in film and in television, has been met with critical praise, and her beauty has had people all around the world stopping in their tracks to admire. Her voice, thanks to her work on Family Guy, is just as recognizable an asset as she has in her arsenal. Success is hardly a fluke, and her career is no exception to the rule. She’s a true talent and, even entering motherhood, has fans waiting to see what she does next.
Born in the Ukraine in 1983, Mila Kunis found her breakout success on the sitcom That ’70s Show (with future husband Ashton Kutcher), and proceeded to follow that with another television hit in Family Guy. After becoming a national darling on television, Kunis took to the big screen, and starred in a number of hits, including: Ted, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Black Swan. While her career may be at a brief pit stop, fans are still able to go back in time and enjoy her past works.
Mila is one of the most beautiful women in the business, and she has been able to show off her looks and her talents throughout her career. Whether it’s movies, television, or modelling, Mila Kunis has left our jaws on the floor, and her beauty is often too hot to handle. So, if you’re finding yourself in need of some Mila Kunis in your life, look no further.
15. LA Times Magazine (February 2011)
The LA Times is one of the biggest newspapers in the world, and their magazine is nothing to sneeze at. Back in 2011, Mila Kunis graced the cover of the revered magazine, and the world would be forever grateful. Elegant, stylish, and beautiful, Kunis absolutely rocked the photo shoot, and left fans begging for more. As I mentioned earlier, her beauty is nearly unparalleled, and this magazine shoot is a perfect example of that bold claim. The beauty is simply too hot to handle.
Sandwiched in between two years of major successes for the actress, her 2011 magazine cover was a beautiful centerpiece to show off her budding film career. That same year, Kunis would star in Friend’s With Benefits, which would go on to be a box office success, and make nearly 150 million dollars. And to think, she accomplished this all before the age of 30. Looks like I need to make some serious changes.
14. Bad Moms Premiere (July 2016)
Mila Kunis has taken a break from the business, and has hopped into the full-time thankless position of motherhood. But, before the hiatus, Kunis delivered one more film in 2016, and the title couldn’t be more fitting for the star. Her film Bad Moms boasted an all-star cast of hilarious and talented actresses, and the movie would find a solid amount of success at the summer box office. When it was all said and done, the film earned nearly 180 million dollars.
Despite the stellar cast of beautiful women, Mila is front and center, and her beauty is nothing to be reckoned with. She was hysterical as character Amy Mitchell, and I enjoyed the movie more than I thought I would. Now, it wasn’t Bridesmaids funny, but it didn’t need to be. Bad Moms is definitely worth a watch, especially for those who enjoy women that are both beautiful and hilarious.
13. “The End Has No End” Music Video (2003)
Straight out of New York City, The Strokes became a successful band with their unique indie rock and garage rock sound. The band’s first album Is This It is often heralded as a classic, and their follow up album Room on Fire is fantastic in its own right. Among the singles released for their second album, “The End Has No End” may not have been as successful as the others, but it did have Mila Kunis in the video, and that is pretty damn impressive.
The song happens to be one of my favorites on the album, and the video is a perfect complement to the song. I should warn you that Kunis doesn’t spend a whole lot of time in the music video, but seeing her in 80s attire is worth the watch. The video features a number of beautiful actresses that you will instantly recognize, but keep an eye out for the 80s-clad Kunis.
12. Max Payne (2008)
Video game film adaptations rarely make a big splash in Hollywood, and 2008’s Max Payne wouldn’t exactly ignite the box office. For some reason, most of these films tend to lose their luster, and fans are left unsatisfied. The film, starring Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg, would only go on to gross a modest 85 million dollars that October. Critics weren’t particularly fond of the film, but thankfully the excellent cinematography and set designs kept the film from being completely hated. The grim film’s tone was a bit drab, but Mila Kunis was able to stand out.
In preparation for the role, Mila Kunis underwent weapons training, and her proficiency was on display in the film. This movie presents an interesting situation as its soundtrack is better than the film itself. I didn’t really like this film all too much (though I wouldn’t say that I hated it), but Mila Kunis makes this film worthwhile, as she is as talented and beautiful as ever.
11. Harper’s Bazaar Magazine (April 2012)
After a successful 2011 that saw the actress take a pretty good sized chunk of change at the box office, Mila Kunis was prepared to spend the next two years taking the world by storm, and raking in nearly a billion dollars in box office revenue. A few months before her movie Ted would conquer the world, Mila Kunis appeared in Harper’s Bazaar Magazine, and would make viewers around the world running over to the nearest county fair to find themselves a beauty on a carousel.
Mila has a knack for incredible photo shoots, and her feature here is no exception. Adorned in beautiful attire and rocking the carousel, the star is on another level, and her small-town vibe on the shoot is pure magic. Give the whole shoot a look, and see how well you do in fighting your craving for some cotton candy. You’ll even catch a glimpse of her bubble-blowing skills.
10. Friends With Benefits (2011)
Back in 2011, Mila Kunis was on top of the world, and was continuing her trend of success in the business. Prior to Friends With Benefits, Kunis had already crushed it on the big screen with 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall. In July 2011, the actress would team up with talent Justin Timberlake to deliver the summer hit Friends With Benefits. The smash hit would deliver big laughs, and would rake in a red hot 149 million dollars at the box office.
In every relationship, competition is a healthy thing, and in 2011, Kunis would find herself in a box office duel. As it were, her future husband, Ashton Kutcher, would release a similar movie that same year with his comedy No Strings Attached. Kutcher’s film would debit nearly 6 months beforehand. Both movies would go on to gross nearly identical amounts, so we can chalk this one up as a draw.
9. Esquire Magazine (March 2010)
Mila Kunis has steadily added to an impressive list of movies, and 2010 saw a few of these movies make their debut. Among the three movies that she was in that year, Black Swan may have had the critical acclaim, but The Book of Eli was an impressive film as well. Both movies are unique, and Mila’s acting is incredible in both movies. For her role in Black Swan, Kunis was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award for the same category.
In March of the same year, Mila Kunis appeared in Esquire Magazine, and was able to turn heads without having to say a single word. The issue debuted in between the release of The Book of Eli and Black Swan, and was more than enough for her fans. Throw in a supporting role in Date Night that same year, and it’s easy to see the Mila simply owned 2010.
8. Black Swan (2010)
For being a relatively low-budget film (only a 13 million dollar budget), 2010’s Black Swan packed a huge punch both critically and commercially. Anchored by performances from both Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman, Black Swan was a smash hit, accumulating nearly 330 million dollars at the box office, and was nominated for a slew of awards. Despite some controversy around the film, Black Swan was still able to perform better than most had anticipated.
For her role in the film, Mila was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress, but ultimately lost out to Melissa Leo. Natalie Portman, on the other hand, would win an Academy Award for Best Actress. Both talented ladies gave incredible performances, and looked stunning while doing so. Once she hops back into the business, I would love to see these two get together and deliver another great film, and I know that I’m not alone.
7. Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
When this movie was first announced, I could hardly contain myself. The Wizard of Oz is one of the greatest films ever made, and a prequel movie was sure to provide a Disney inspired take on the story’s origins, and leave fans happy. Despite being plagued by the ever present CGI bug, I did enjoy Oz the Great and Powerful, and Mila Kunis’ performance was excellent. She is picture perfect in the magical world, and looks flawless for the better part of the film. Of course, her turn to the feared wicked witch left her looking a little less than beautiful.
Oz the Great and Powerful, though met with mixed reviews, hauled in a massive 493 million dollars in March 2013. While it may have lacked the acclaim it desired, its effects were incredible, and helped garner some praise for the film. It remains one of Mila Kunis’ most financially successful films to date.
6. GQ Magazine (December 2011)
Several months after the release of her film Friends With Benefits, Mila Kunis would make her way onto the cover of GQ, and her racy photo shoot would become one of the best that she’s done. Mila’s modelling talent has already been discussed in this piece, but, one look at her GQ shoot will tell you exactly why I chose to include a few different magazines on this list. The cover photo alone is enough to make your day, but the rest of the spread is just as amazing.
Now, this is not the only time that Mila has graced the cover of the magazine. Her other appearance on the magazine’s cover is stunning, and that photo shoot in particular is almost too much for any man to handle. Something tells me that Mila and GQ should work together more often, as they seem to have figured out a recipe for success.
5. Glamour Magazine (September 2011)
If you were to take a look through different modelling sessions that Mila Kunis has been the focal point of, you will begin to notice that the star has an innate ability to tackle most any look, and is able to delve into decade’s past for a sultry look that is sure to please. In 2011, the actress was Glamour Magazine’s main squeeze, and her vintage looks gave viewers more than an eyeful to admire. Among the photos from the sessions, her 1960’s school girl look is perhaps the best of the bunch.
It’s interesting to see her modelling talents shine with each shoot, especially considering that her husband Ashton Kutcher is a former model himself. In 2014, Mila did a series of ads for Jim Beam, and looked stunning in each commercial. Much like her shoot for Glamour Magazine, she was able to take the look that she was given, and maximize its potential.
4. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
The first time that I watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I laughed so hard and loved it so much that I immediately re-watched the film. The film had the perfect cast of characters, and the story of serendipitous love while reeling from a broken heart is one that struck a chord with a number of people. Produced by Hollywood hit maker Judd Apatow, Forgetting Sarah Marshall proved to be a sizeable hit for Universal Pictures, and remains a wildly popular film.
Kunis delivered a stellar performance of character Rachel Jansen, and looked absolutely radiant in the Hawaiian setting. Thanks to her heritage, the actress was able to muster a perfect tan, and outshine her fellow stars. She shows off her acting chops in the film, as she is able to make you laugh, and then break your heart. It’s not easy looking this beautiful next to Kristen Bell, but Mila is able to make it happen.
3. Allure Magazine (March 2013)
During the 1960s, a number of beautiful starlets emerged, and made their way through Hollywood. It was a unique decade that brought massive change to pop culture, and to the world as a whole. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones helped change the landscape of music, and film visionaries like Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock reshaped the film industry. The style shift of the 1960s helped define the generation, and, 50 years later, Mila Kunis would revive and revamp that style with her spread in Allure Magazine.
Mila’s spread for the magazine is incredible, and, as I mentioned before, she is able to go 50 years into the past and take full charge over a long forgotten style. Her 2013 was already off to a phenomenal start after the massive financial success of Oz the Great and Powerful, and Mila’s spread here is the icing on a very pricey cake.
2. Ted (2012)
Despite their first go of things being somewhat sub-par, Mila Kunis teamed up with fellow Max Payne alum Mark Wahlberg for one of the biggest R-rated hits of all-time. 2012’s Ted took the world by storm that summer, and is easily one of the funniest movies that has come out in recent memory. Directed by Family Guy mastermind Seth MacFarlane, Ted was a gigantic success for Universal Pictures, conjuring up a staggering 549 million dollars.
Mila’s portrayal of Lori Collins was hysterical, and her beauty is sought after by several characters in the movie. Unfortunately, Kunis would not appear in the sequel Ted 2, leaving a pretty sizeable piece of the first movie’s magic missing. Personally, I was disappointed with the lack of the actress, and I didn’t like the sequel nearly as much as the original. The sequel would not fare nearly as well as its predecessor, and I have to think that Mila Kunis being excluded was a big factor in that.
1. Elle Magazine (August 2012)
Allow me, if you will, to introduce you to what might in fact be Mila’s most elegant photo shoot to date. In August 2012, Mila Kunis was selected as the cover model for Elle Magazine, and the results were nothing short of breathtaking. Elle Magazine has a tradition of excellence and elegance, and this spread is a shining example of the standard that the publication holds itself to.
Photographed by American photographer Doug Inglish, Mila Kunis once again defies beauty standards and expectations to deliver in a major way. The decades-defying shoot is subtle, and uses that subtlety to its advantage. Her work in the movie Ted made the actress a highly sought after commodity, and Elle Magazine was able to strike while the iron was hot. The film’s nearly 550 million dollars of revenue may have had Universal Pictures salivating, but this photo shoot had the world on the knees.
