Kunis, who got her start on
That ’70s Showin 1998, is now firmly established as one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. Expect her quote, which is currently modest by Hollywood standards, to climb accordingly. Despite her busy movie schedule she still finds time to voice Meg on Family Guy.

“I’ve never done anything remotely close to this, and I felt safe, I guess, in the challenge because I was surrounded by people I respected so, so much,” Mila said of her dual-personality role in the Sam Raimi-directed film.
Mila: I was not interested in doing any sort of endorsement for any sort of company, let alone a jewelry or stone-based company. I didn’t need to. Also because I did it before, and I didn’t like it and didn’t enjoy myself and didn’t like working for a company I didn’t know much about. Then I met Ian who is the CEO/COO of Gemfields and the team. And they care so much about the company that it made me really excited to be a part of their family. And their outlook on a company is so different than the way most people look at a company. Most people look at a company as an end result, all they care about is the profit and the final product. But Gemfields really cares so much about the process and how to get there and whom it affects and how it affects him. Where the gem comes from and the environment. That empowered me and made me want to be a part of that family.
Mila: Now for me it’s the emerald. Because I’ve learned that every emerald has its fingerprint where you can trace it back to the continent and the mine where it came from. You can’t do that with any other stone.
Mila: Yes. The great thing is that I don’t feel like I’m hawking a jewelry line. I feel like I’m part of something that is so much more than that. It’s introducing the world or reintroducing the world to some beautiful stones that I think that people have forgotten about.
Mila: No. I never wanted to be involved. I was never a jewelry person. I don’t wake up accessorizing my outfits. But I have so much more of an appreciation and understanding for it now due to being a part of this. Now I love it. It’s crazy but true.
Mila: My grandmother gave me her ring a couple of years ago. I love it. It’s a ruby. Diamonds weren’t big in the 1920s, 1930s or 1940s. People didn’t look at diamonds as things of value. It was about rubies.
Mila: That is the beauty of Gemfields. They bring so many different cultures and types of jewelry together. Some people are doing antique stuff to Art Deco to modern to vintage. It’s the beauty of being part of this company. It’s massively diverse.
Mila: Whatever it is to you. The emotional attachment to jewelry. I don’t think it should be monetary. To me it is who gave it to me and what it was given for.
