Mila Kunis has revealed a closely guarded secret – for years she was blind in one eye.
The Black Swan tells U.S. magazine Cosmopolitan that she struggled with chronic iritis, an inflammation of the iris, for years.
Kunis, 27, says: ‘I was blind in one eye for many years, and nobody knew.’
As a result of her condition she suffered blurred vision, developed a cataract and her eyes became different colours.
But surgery has corrected the problem. Kunis says: ‘I was blind. I’m not blind anymore. I had surgery a couple of months ago.’
‘They cut it open and dropped a new lens in there.’
Kunis may have opened up about being blind but one topic that was strictly off limited was her relationship with Macaulay Culkin.
The couple dated for eight years before quietly splitting a few months ago.
At the time of the Cosmopolitan interview the public thought the couple were still together.
The only comment Kunis makes about Culkin in the article is that she refuses to comment.
‘Never have, never will,’ she says. ‘The reason I’m able to have a relationship is because I don’t talk about it.’
She does openly talk about what she looks for in a man, though.
‘Confidence, not cockiness,’ Kunis says.
‘Knowing who you are is confidence. Cockiness is knowing who you are and pushing it down everyone’s throat.
Looks go; they fade. I don’t think looks matter.’
‘Romance is also important to the actress, who says: ‘I love flowers. Although flowers on my birthday aren’t romantic.’
And the girl who thinks she ‘could not be less sexy if I tried,’ has a definite idea of what makes a man sexy.
Kunis jokingly says: ‘Do gentlemanly things like open the door for me while writing me a song and taking control in the bedroom while showing off his muscles.’
The actress is also remarkably generous about kissing her co-stars.
When asked who is the best kisser out of Justin Timberlake, Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, James Franco, and Jason Segel, she compliments each of them.
‘Justin’s upper lip,’ Kunis says. ‘Natalie’s bottom lip… Ashton’s stubble… James’s chin… and Jason’s teeth.’
