This plainspoken actress makes one thing clear: She doesn’t care what people think, and that may be what makes her so hard to resist. In Oz: The Great and Powerful, she plays a witch caught between good and evil, but Kunis is the first to tell you that real life is way more complicated than that. What bothers her most about Hollywood? Don’t get her started. What makes her happy? You’d be surprised. Switching effortlessly from a favorite T-shirt to a tailored blazer or a low-cut Lanvin, this is a woman who lives comfortably in the spotlight.
How would you describe your style?
I’m a white T-shirt with a lacy La Perla bra underneath kind of girl. It’s not a ’50s type of feminity. My family never insisted on me being super-feminine. They just let me be, and that’s what developed naturally.
Has your style evolved?
Yes, thankfully! In the ’90s I wore jeans with a jean jacket–and studded jeans. It’s so horrible to remember.
Do you have a favorite fashion icon?
I know it’s a cliché, but I like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy. It’s not their style I aspire to–I’m more tomboyish–I love the images of them. So timeless.
What do you think is sexy?
Sexy is what’s comfortable. There are people who wear sweats and Converse and feel sexy in them–and they shouldn’t change just to satisfy some enforced notion of what’s appealing. It’s crazy that people read so much into what, say, Katie Holmes wears jeans and a button-down shirt, and she feels confident and beautiful, who cares?
Do you have a favorite designer?
I love Céline. The clothing is simple and chic, yet not too showy.
Mila and James Franco will appear on
UK premiere of Oz: The Great and Powerful on
New trailer for
“When James’ character first gets to Oz, he meets this very innocent, naive, beautiful girl, who falls in love with him. James is a little bit selfish at that point in the story and, not thinking about anybody but himself, he woos this girl. He sleeps with her and then he discards her. I believed Mila as an innocent. But then I needed an actress who, after they were dumped, could reach inside and pull out some terrible dark anger. I’ve seen her perform that also, in Black Swan. I don’t want to say what happens to Mila’s character, but you don’t want to dump that girl. She’s going to come after him.”
