I know you got that thing with Ashton or whatever but...Will you go out with me? I have a coupon for the Olive Garden.

OfficialMilaKunis4910 karma

Mmm. I'm more of an Outback Steakhouse gal.

StuffHobbes3963 karma

Hey Mila,
Is Channing Tatum as dreamy in real life as he is on screen?
As a straight guy, I'm asking for a friend...

OfficialMilaKunis4489 karma


Just as dreamy, ladies. Just as dreamy.

mission173716 karma

Do you plan on raising your children to speak Russian as well as English?

OfficialMilaKunis4680 karma

Yes! Absolutely. I speak Russian to the baby all the time. My parents speak Russian to the baby all the time. And Ashton's taking Russian lessons.

SaltySarcasm3634 karma

Has anyone ever recognized you as Jill the party guest from Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves?

OfficialMilaKunis3631 karma

Hahah that's funny.



ruoF3511 karma

A friend of mine told me you were credited on Robot Chicken for being Seth Green's hair stylist. What's the story behind that?

OfficialMilaKunis4970 karma

Um, Sarah Michelle Gellar and myself are credited in ROBOT CHICKEN many, many times for doing things that do not exist. Seth is our best friend, and we made him do it.

chesky3329 karma

If you could make your own college course and teach it, what would the title of your course be?

OfficialMilaKunis4485 karma

That's a good question! WOW!

I would teach a course... nobody should take any class from me, let's prefix it with that, but if you're forced to take any class from me... I could teach a class on "How to be an awesome, badass chick who knows how to take apart & put together a gun blindfolded, make a four-course meal, and parallel park the shit out of a car."

I mean, don't you think?

That would be my course.

mark2d3057 karma

Hi Mila, thanks for doing this AMA;

So, you've worked with some notable directors: Darren Aronofksy, Sam Raimi, Paul Haggis, and now the Wachowskis. Is there any other directors you admire and/or would like to work with?

Also, what was like kissing Natalie Portman?

OfficialMilaKunis4232 karma

Oh my goodness, oh you!

Chris Nolan, I would love to work with... let me think... I would love to work with Alejandro González Iñárritu... I think those I would love to work with, right off the top of my head.

And how was it making out with Natalie? I mean... when you have a kissing scene in a film it's not something you think about as a kissing thing. You have all these crew around. But she's a lovely kisser, very polite.

But here's a little-known fact: there's one person in the world that both Ashton and I have kissed, and that's Natalie Portman.

Maybe Zoe Saldana too? Though I can't quite recall when I played Zoe's girlfriend in a movie...but that could also be it.

hangtime73023 karma

Who's the person that's made you laugh the hardest while working together?

OfficialMilaKunis4107 karma

Wilmer Valderrama, on that 70's Show.

Raglefanten1233009 karma

Hi Mila! Is it true that Keanu Reeves is immortal?

OfficialMilaKunis4156 karma

As far as I'm concerned, yes.

dogboyboy2983 karma

Excuse me, Ms. Kunis, on the "The Color of Time" CD-ROM, is there a way to get out of the dungeon without a wizard's key?

OfficialMilaKunis2597 karma

What?!?! Come again?

I'm going to say no, you cannot get out without a wizard's key.

escherbach2632 karma

Do you ever think in russian? What about dreams?

OfficialMilaKunis4015 karma

I dream in english. That actually happened, later in life, but now I dream in english. When I learned to speak english fluently, my dreams changed to english.

Strange, right?

stephen_19752568 karma


OfficialMilaKunis3919 karma

Aw thank you so much. A little thing called "a pregnancy" got in the way of me and production. But I wish them all the best, and I'm sure the movie will be hysterical.

Wickedawesome312449 karma

Who is more misunderstood- Meg Griffin or Jackie Burkhart?

OfficialMilaKunis3482 karma

Oh, Meg Griffin. Hands down.

OfficialMilaKunis3299 karma

Jackie was fine. Jackie got around. Meg? Not so much.

48454c4c4f574f524c442378 karma

What was the best thing about working on "That 70s Show?" Did you ever imagine it would be as successful as it was?

OfficialMilaKunis3498 karma

You know, at 14 years old, you don't really contemplate success and that aspect of work, you kinda do things because it's fun to do. We had an amazing crew and cast, and I had the best 8 years of my life on the show. It's not something you can force, it's either something that happens or doesn't. Yeah!

DEmonicpizzapan2276 karma

Hi Mila!

I found out recently that you have played/play World of Warcraft. Are you excited for the WOW movie and do you still enjoy playing WOW?

OfficialMilaKunis3961 karma

I have not played WOW in probably 5 years! Yes, I used to play. I played a LOT. I was in a guild, I led raids, I was a pretty badass mage. I had multiple characters. I was a frostmage, I think, by the time I stopped playing? But no, I stopped playing when everyone started having children. I was level 70, I quit at level 70, before the expansion pack.

BrandtHasToPay1001872 karma

Hi Mila! Thank you for doing this AMA. How has becoming a mother changed you the most?

OfficialMilaKunis4031 karma

It is the most life-changing experience you can have, in my opinion.


I am proud to be a stay-at-home mom. I have no desire to be in front of the camera. I find her to be the most challenging job I've had. The amount of love that you have, the type of love that you have, changes, the way you look at the world changes... everything has changed, because of her. I want an eco-friendly car, I want to compost everything, because I want the world to be better for her. And you have the opportunity to make a really great child for the world. Or a really great human being.

Fredox1588 karma

Miss Kunis it's my birthday today. What do you like doing on your birthday? I need ideas haha

OfficialMilaKunis2473 karma


What do I like to do on my birthday? I like to have a very small family dinner with friends. Family & friends, that's it. And amazing food. I'm ALL about the food!

thearmadillo1540 karma

What is your favorite kind of salsa?

OfficialMilaKunis2970 karma

The one that Ashton's mother makes.

OfficialMilaKunis2057 karma

It is VERY delicious.

SupremeChun1535 karma

Hi Mila. Thanks for having this AMA. I have several questions that I like you to answer:

  1. How often do people come up to you and say “Shut up Meg” and how do you usually respond to it?

  2. Are there any directors you want to work with in future films?

  3. What was it like preparing for your role in “Black Swan?”

OfficialMilaKunis2294 karma

1.) A LOT. People often - I guess - comment more online than in person from what I understand? And how I normally respond to it is - I laugh!

2.) Already answered :)

3.) BLACK SWAN used to be the most physically demanding part I'd ever done, until JUPITER ASCENDING. We trained for 3 months before production, and I learned how to be in en pointe, and how to be a ballerina. And then for JUPITER, you do maximum amounts of wirework training every day. So for BLACK SWAN, I trained by dancing every day for 3 months, and learning how to get en pointe in 3 months. Ultimately, it was all about learning how to pretend to be a ballerina. And I mimicked my ballet instructor more than anything.

lucyness1501 karma

How was it like working with Sean bean and are you a fan of game of thrones?

OfficialMilaKunis2361 karma


Sean Bean was great! Huge fan of Game of Thrones! So bummed Ned Stark got murdered! So happy to work with Ned Stark! He's the chillest person ever. He's like... just a normal British guy whom you can just shoot the shit with.

RoyalRamen1494 karma

Mila Kunis! Can you just reply with "yes" so that I can brag to all my friends that Mila Kunis responded to me on reddit?

Also if you could turn into food, what food would you be?

OfficialMilaKunis2485 karma

Hahahahaa! What?!


I don't want to be eaten. But I guess if I have to be? I'd be a bowl of ice cream. I might as well go down in glory in deliciousness. Nobody hates on ice cream!

SyntheticSocks1470 karma

What's you're favorite sandwich?

OfficialMilaKunis1944 karma

My favorite sandwich... maybe like a fried egg sandwich.

Thejett251431 karma

Mila, my favorite movie with you is extract... Also you're hilarious, my question... What's your favorite pizza topping?

OfficialMilaKunis2263 karma

My favorite pizza topping - this is a really boring answer for you - all veggie.


I'm sorry, I genuinely love an all-veggie pizza. I don't love pepperoni, not a fan, and I don't like all-cheese. So for me, veggie or a short-rib pizza that a place near has that I love.

But yea, sorry guys, that's my favorite.

OH Wait, that's not true! I really like BBQ Chicken, but i know that's sacrilege. And I really like super-thin, burnt-burnt-burnt crust. Like extra crispy.

Phill822451393 karma

If you got offered a role as a super hero, would you do it and what character would you like to play?

OfficialMilaKunis3057 karma


princeconsuelo41280 karma

What is your favorite cereal?

OfficialMilaKunis2663 karma

CHEX. Chex Rice cereal. Yes, the most blandest cereal possible. I love cereal that tastes like cardboard. Yes, I know it's weird. My morning cereal is Chex, Almond Milk, and then I put in a bunch of berries - without fail!

seismicor1126 karma

Hi, Mila. What are the cons/pros of having one brown eye and one green eye?

OfficialMilaKunis1813 karma

You know what? After my surgery, I have a glass lens that was put in my eye, I now have the same color eyes!

tmntnut1065 karma

Just wanted to let you know that my SO and I have been joking with each other for a couple of years about who our hollywood crushes are, you are mine, and Channing Tatum is hers. Thought it was pretty funny you guys are starring in a movie together, okay so question time, besides you two being in the movie what is the best reason we should drag our asses to the theater to see Jupiter Ascending?

OfficialMilaKunis2241 karma

Oh! Well, because Channing has his shirt off for part of the film. And because I wear really tight clothes. So for you and your SO, there you have it!

Plus it's kickass, and brilliant, and smart. But for you and your SO... you can go and see Channing half-naked. Yay!

Jar_Lar920 karma

Hey Mila! (:

What is your favorite gas-station snack?

OfficialMilaKunis2460 karma

It's a place called Casey's, and they're all over Iowa, and they do a delicious breakfast pizza.

Yeah, you heard me!

Niller25877 karma

If you could travel to any place in the world, where would you go?

OfficialMilaKunis2269 karma

Right now, I kinda really want to go to Cuba. Before it gets Westernized. I would want to go to Cuba very quickly.

inevitablescape862 karma

What is your favorite music genre?

OfficialMilaKunis1549 karma

Oh, I'm not a music snob. I honestly will listen to anything.

KidCharlemagne88861 karma

How's Seth McFarland in real life?

OfficialMilaKunis1655 karma

Very very smart.

coffeeisblack846 karma

What made you choose Jupiter Ascending for your next movie?

OfficialMilaKunis1622 karma

I've always been a fan of sci-fi. And so when the opportunity to work with the Wachowskis on a sci-fi film that is a fully original concept, that was really intriguing to both Channing and myself. And it's one of the first times you get to see the female be a heroine, versus a damsel in distress. She kicks ass, which is always a rarity in the industry. In sci-fi films, it's uncommon for the woman to be the badass. But the Lara Croft movies, Aliens... the fact you can count it is a problem versus all the action films where the heroes are always men.

tmnsam834 karma


What was it like working with Robin Williams? I've heard he was one of the nicest guys in the industry.

OfficialMilaKunis1489 karma

Yes, Robin was a great guy, a great human being.

cosine83774 karma

What's it like having one of the most recognized and most scorned voice in television?

What's your favorite video game genre?

Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized Marky Marks or 1 Marky Mark-sized duck?

OfficialMilaKunis1469 karma

Oh, haha, it's great! Often I forget that I get recognized, so when I call places, I never say my real name, but they always say "Oh my god, you sound like Meg!" and I'll say "Oh my gosh, that's so crazy..."

MMORPG? But when you get a group of people together - to me, MARIO PARTY is the perfect game. It's fun, it's simple, and everybody could play it. You didn't have to be a great video game aficionado to play MARIO PARTY.

Hahahah! 100 Marky-Mark ducks. The first one.

Clairabel734 karma

Hi Mila! If you could go back in time and have a conversation with your 14 year old self, what would you say to her?

OfficialMilaKunis1464 karma

I would tell her to relax and not rush it.

sf7707 karma

Mila, what's the most attractive personality trait a man can have?

OfficialMilaKunis1332 karma

I guess a sense of humor. Sense of humor is the most attractive quality.

superindian25628 karma

What does ashton Kutcher smell like?

OfficialMilaKunis1674 karma

What does Ashton Kutcher smell like?

He smells like a man.

A real man! But he smells like a man. He does not wear cologne. But he makes sure he showers. Never offending. He has a very good natural smell about him, yeah.

Notanothermoviegeek626 karma

You have some pull out there in Hollywood! Anyway you can make a Quantum Leap movie happen? If not it's cool! Just thought I would ask. :) Anyways, you are awesome! Thanks for doing this and have an awesome day!

OfficialMilaKunis942 karma

Whoever that is, I am right there with you. I hope they make a Quantum Leap movie! No, I have no pull in Hollywood, but I'm right there with you kiddo.

risforrach614 karma

Hi Mila! What tv shows are you into at the moment? :)

OfficialMilaKunis1609 karma

At the moment... I watch... well... it would be... WALKING DEAD, HOMELAND, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, and currently, I guess the only thing I have to watch is The Bachelor? But that's so depressing. It's the first season I'm ever watching it. But it's so addictive. I mean, it's unbelievably addicting. In all 15 seasons or so they've done this, I've never sat down to watch it. But now - oh my god, these women are crazy!

lvest537 karma

What’s your favorite book?

OfficialMilaKunis1062 karma

Oh, my favorite book?

AJ Jacobs - anything by him I really find fun, and easy to ready. I also really like - what's his name - Mitch Albom, anything by him I really like. He wrote a book called FOR ONE MORE DAY, I read it on a plane, and it really stuck with me, and I thought it was a really beautiful book - it starts out with him trying to commit suicide, and he ends up reliving a perfect day with his mom, and I've always loved that book. It was the first book that had a really significant impact on me. I got off the phone, called my mom and said "I love you."

It's a really great book.

lorelai143522 karma

Hi Mila!

What is your most random hobby?

If you could get a PhD in anything what would it be?

OfficialMilaKunis997 karma

My most random hobby is I like gardening. And if I could get a PhD in anything, I would like to be a doctor of Neuroscience... I mean, this is all in a hypothetical world, but that's what I would like to do. Brain-surgery. Yeah!

TheDuskDragon496 karma

If you could have a lifetime supply of any food, what would it be?

OfficialMilaKunis1386 karma



Yeah, I use eggs in everything!

Or maybe... like, no... Mmmmm... gosh this is a really good question.... Ashton goes fishing once a year in Alaska, and brings back like 80 pounds of fish, and that is how we eat our fish year-round - freshly caught from Alaska. So a lifetime supply of fresh sustainably sourced wild-caught salmon would be delicious!

OfficialMilaKunis1396 karma

We don't want to overfish our waters!

AzBrah455 karma

Hey Mila!

I love how you're such a versatile actress. You do both comedy and drama so well!

My question is, which types of roles do you enjoy playing the most?

OfficialMilaKunis601 karma

You know what, I honestly - I don't think there's any difference, as far as genre goes. You gravitate towards roles that you relate to. They're both equally as challenging, and I like playing roles I can relate to. And I like playing roles that I find challenging, whether comedy or drama.

maltby18448 karma

Just how horrible does Kristen Bell smell?

OfficialMilaKunis1004 karma

Awww Kristen Bell doesn't smell. She's delicious!

embf103191439 karma

Thank you for doing this AMA! Could you give me 2 lies and a truth about filming Jupiter Ascending? Thanks again!

OfficialMilaKunis825 karma


Um, I almost got ran over by a camera on a crane while strapped to a wire.

I...was thrown 80 feet off of a ledge on a crane.

And I flew on a harness through the city of Chicago.

Two lies and a truth!

ranchdepressing424 karma

Kittens or puppies?

OfficialMilaKunis1134 karma

Puppies. But I don't want to be prejudiced against kitties either.

Thadoor388 karma

What do you like to do to relax?

OfficialMilaKunis1035 karma

Watch really bad television. Like...The Bachelor.

Dezendorf27353 karma

Hi Mila! You're such an amazing actress! I'm always curious about actors and actresses life goals. If acting didn't work out for you, what other careers would you have considered and why?

OfficialMilaKunis612 karma

Before I had Wyatt, I would've been a teacher. I would have taught like first grade.

I_Lase_You92 karma

Hi Mila! Here's a Welcome to reddit lase for you! Link (I really wanted to do a lase of you and Wyatt, but couldn't find a good picture. Sorry!) Now for the question: Have you ever turned down a part that later on you really wished you'd taken?

OfficialMilaKunis73 karma

No! I've never had remorse about not doing a film. There's definitely films I couldn't do because of time, there's been times when I had option A and B, and I always told myself I would take parts for the right reasons. So I've never had regret about not doing a more successful film. I'm always happy about how films turn out, it makes no difference to me as long as it's entertaining.

AngelBuster87 karma

What's surprised you most about acting?

OfficialMilaKunis174 karma

You know what? It's hard to say what surprised me the most about acting, because you can never predict anything in this industry, so all of it is a giant shocker. But maybe how small the world really is, and how small the industry really is. It's a very small, small industry.

drewbulubu22 karma

What's the last song you listened to on your phone?

OfficialMilaKunis47 karma

The last song I listened to on my phone...was...I guess it was in the car, and it was that - oh geez, who does that "Take me to Church" song? Hozier. It was on the radio!

ColdplayParadise18 karma

What languages do you speak?

I would be sooo happy if you would answer one of my questions! :D

OfficialMilaKunis43 karma

Spanish, English, Russian.

shivan2112 karma

How are Wachowskis as directors? How do they work with actors?

OfficialMilaKunis26 karma

The Wachowskis as directors, as a team, are very much one brain and one entity. Like they have the same thought process, they talk the same, they don't do anything one without the other. So if there are multiple units, they disconnect - where one goes, the other follows. They are literally one brain.

They definitely push you, physically. They are very nice, of course, but they make you do things you don't think you are capable of doing. They challenge you. They also prefer you do your own stunts - very rewarding at the end of the day, but very challenging. I did all my own stunts, with the exception of one.
