Mila Kunis Named GQ's Knockout of the Year
She's one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood, and Mila Kunis was selected as GQ magazine's 2011 Knockout of the Year.
Featured in the December issue set to his newsstands nationwide on November 22nd, the former "That 70's Show" star posed for a fun shoot with Terry Richardson while talking about her childhood days and not taking her profession too seriously.
Highlights from Mila's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit GQ.
On living in Chernovtsy, in what was the USSR until the second grade: "It wasn't, like, a full-on village," Kunis protests with a giggle. "We had a movie theater. Streets were paved. We had a normal school."
On getting into action upon her family's move to Los Angeles: "My English was a little janky. I didn't have very many friends. And there was this place advertised on the radio as a place for kids to meet other kids-an acting class. My parents couldn't afford a babysitter. They said, 'Great, that takes up our Saturday.'"
On her profession, and not taking it too seriously : "I love what I do, but my theory is that it's people who doubt what they do and want to prove it to you, they're like 'It's art. I create art. It's art, art, art.' I'm like, Holy shit, are you fucking kidding me? I run around and pretend I'm someone else for twelve hours; I record Family Guy [she voices Meg]. Then I get to go home and watch Jersey Shore." With Mila Kunis featured as The Knockout, GQ Magazine has come up with 3 other covers featuring their Picks of the Year.
Michael Fassbender is named as the Breakout star while Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon have been named as the Showmen of the Year. Rounding out the winner's list is rapper/entrepreneur Jay-Z, who was dubbed "The King" by the men's magazine.
In his interview, Jay-Z chatted about working with Kanye West on their super-hot album Watch The Throne. "I think he just can't help himself. He puts so much into everything, and he's like, 'You have to treat it like I treat it.' It drives you crazy sometimes-like when you've put seventy-five versions of a snare on one song and he's like, 'No!' and you're like, 'Come on, man.'"
The "99 Problems" rapper also discussed his dad's departure from his life early on. "If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts-but it's not like you had a connection with something that was real. Not to say it's any better-but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero."
"[I talked about] what it did to me, what it meant, asked him why. There was no real answer. There was nothing he could say, because there's no excuse for that. There really isn't. So there was nothing he could say to satisfy me, except to hear me out. And it was up to me to forgive and let it go."
