Mila Kunis Covers Interview Magazine
Kind of looks like a Guess! ad, circa 1994, no?
Mila Kunis graces the August issue of Interview magazine and, as is their tradition, she’s interviewed by another famous actor – James Franco. We hate to admit it but this sort of makes sense - they’re both starring in the upcoming Oz, the Great and Powerful, a modern re-telling of the old Wizard of Oz but this time with the man himself as the focus. She spoke to Franco about a lot of things, here are the choice cuts.
On choosing the right projects: “I’ve said this before, but after That ’70s Show ended, 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. 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.”
Um. Not to nitpick or anything Mila, but are you really trying to tell us, (or tell James Franco) that Friends With Benefits, a movie you admitted you kind of re-wrote segments of with Justin Timberlake is an example of working with people who are ‘better’ than you? Timberlake is a talented singer, he has good comic timing, but as an actor? A writer? Do you really want to say that? And did that movie really ‘inspire’ you to do better?
Well, maybe she got lost in the moment because the next paragraph is pretty solid.
On moving on from acting: “Listen, in five years I do hope to have a family, and, you know, who knows? I think in this industry people have such a short shelf life, truly, that I don’t know what I’m going to be in five years in regards to acting. I mean, I’d love to produce. I can’t form a sentence or write an e-mail, so I know I’m definitely not going to go and become a writer, but I would love to explore other facets of this industry, for sure… I’ve always been a big proponent of not working for the sake of working, because I don’t want to work for the rest of my life—I want to live. So I’d rather work to live than live to work.”
