Forbes announced their annual list of The Best Actors for The Buck (2013). For those who don’t know: this is the list of stars who make the highest return on investments for the studio. We’re pleased to inform you that Mila ranked 2nd – returns $68.70 for every $1 paid.
Ranking second behind Stone is Mila Kunis, with an average return of $68.70 for every $1 she was paid. Kunis had two huge hits in the past two years: Ted and Oz The Great and Powerful. We estimate that between June 2012 and June 2013 she earned $11 million, which was enough to land her on our most recent Celebrity 100. Like Stone, Kunis is now in a position to start demanding much more money per film. That will likely ding her return on investment number.
People’s Choice Awards nominee voting is now open. Vote and pick your favorites. The top 5 winners in each category will be announced on Nov. 5th. The People’s Choice Awards air Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.

The Wicked Witch of the West on Mila Kunis was difficult, because, when you have an actress like Mila Kunis who is absolutely gorgeous, wonderful and charismatic…you don’t want to design a a makeup that will take any of that away from her performance. I sat down initially and looked at Mila’s face, and the things that really stood out for me were her eyes. I didn’t want to change the shape of her eyes or disguise them, or make her eyes a solid black. I wanted to keep the life of that character, and the life of Mila beating within her eyes. I felt like if I took any of that away, it would have been a mistake.
She’s completely covered in prosthetics, her whole face is covered in silicone and foam rubber prosthetics. The only thing that’s exposed are her upper lip and of course her eyelids. Everything else is completely covered. Every day she’d come in at like three in the morning, and we’d do an hour and a half makeup job on her. She’d shoot for 14-16 hours, and then take about a half hour to clean up, and then we’d do it again the next day…because Sam likes to shoot for many, many hours. We certainly went down a long path to find the right looks for the makeup. Even the color went through numerous changes and tweaks as we were shooting. I would take a look at dailies and go “I just want to change the nose a teeny little bit, maybe do the chin at a slightly different angle”….just increments that nobody else would ever realize, but for me it kept bothering me and I kept tweaking the makeup through the course of the show until we ended up with what is in the final version of the film.
But Mila had a lot of say in it too, which was great. I always say that to an actor, I want to know what they are thinking and what they want out of the makeup. And so Mila had a hand in her look, of course, because I wanted her to be comfortable. It’s her face on the screen, she’s going to wear this the whole time. She worked over 30 days in the makeup, and her double Mia Serafino did as well. Normally we’d always have two witches being made up at the same time. So it was a big task. And then the maintenance on set…it’s a very delicate makeup, I would never leave Mila’s side, I always watched her.
She has a very bouncy personality and Mila’s not one to sit still and not talk and be very careful with the makeup…she was very careful with the makeup, but she’s still Mila Kunis, and I had to allow for that to happen. I would always be standing by her…so after I’d do this exhaustive makeup, I would spend the next 14-16 hours standing next to her, making sure she was being maintained. It was a big task
