Who is Mila Kunis?

Mila Kunis is best-known for her role as ‘Jackie’, the boisterous, chirpy, self-centered rich girl in the American sit-com, ‘That ‘70s Show’. Although, she has moved out of the ‘That ‘70s show’ zone and has delivered a number of hits, she is fondly remembered for annoying ways and her prolific comic timing. She has since then, appeared in a number of television series including the animated series, ‘Family Guy’ and played a minor role in the television drama series, ‘7th Heaven’. When she started off in films, most of her movies released a lot later than the promised release date. However, she remained undeterred and began to get noticed for her versatility in acting and her power-packed dialogues. ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’, ‘Extract’, ‘The Book of Eli’, ‘Black Swan’ and ‘Friends with Benefits’ earned her critical acclaim and she soon became Hollywood’s favorite, with her girl-next-door charm and realistic chemistry with her co-stars. She has been romantically linked with a number of her co-stars including Macaulay Culkin, Justin Timberlake and her ‘That ‘70s Show’ co-star, Ashton Kutcher. Apart from her acting career, she is the face of Christian Dior and is ranked as one of the ‘100 most powerful celebrities around the world’.
