Mila appeared on radio shows called Tommy Show & Kosi 101, where she talks about her upcoming movie Ted, how was it like working with Mark and Seth and much more. Listen audio interviews below!
Last year Mila Kunis melted the hearts of millions of Americans when she accepted a YouTube invitation to accompany Sgt. Scott Moore, of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan to his
And it turns out that this wasn’t just a one-night only gesture.
“We are still in contact,” she told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at the premiere of her new raunchy comedy, “Ted.” “We e-mail back and forth, and spoke on the phone about a month-and-a-half ago.”
And no doubt Kunis will continue to build her fan base with her forthcoming role as Mark Wahlberg’s lover in “Ted.” There’s just one (kind of big) problem in their blossoming romance – he can’t move on from his beloved talking yet highly inappropriate teddy bear, which came to life as a result of a childhood wish.
But it apparently takes a lot to make this 28-year-old screen star wince.
“I was always surrounded by very obnoxious, dry people. My dad included, my dad has the dryest sense of humor of anyone I know. When I was little, he made sure that I was going to have a strong back bone and it developed the sense of humor in me,” Kunis continued. “Plus being on ‘That 70’s Show’ for eight years and being on ‘Family Guy’ for twelve or thirteen, it definitely makes you immune to being offended.”
And while the Ukrainian-born actress spent her own childhood days playing with little friends, they weren’t quite as cute and floppy as the eponymous “Ted.”
“I had a rodent – welcome to communist Russia,” she recalled. “And then a crocodile, which had an accordion and he sang.”
Collider chatted with the cast of Ted during the press day. They talked about how this film came about,
Seth, what took so long for you to make a movie?
SETH MacFARLANE: Family Guy had that little cancellation thing happen to it, and I wanted to make sure that it was fully on its feet, after coming back, before I stepped away to do a film because it did mean stepping away from the show completely for at least a year, and that was something that I hadn’t done yet. This was an idea that had actually been floating around in my head for a while. I had originally conceived it as an animated series idea and, for a number of reasons, shelved it. And then, when it came time to do my first movie, it seemed like a story that would make a much better film than a series.
Mark and Mila, when you initially signed on, were you worried about co-starring opposite a bear? Did you wonder whether it would work, in terms of looking at the eye-line and the stuff you’d have to do with him?
MARK WAHLBERG: I was a little nervous at first, but once we started getting into it, I felt comfortable pretty quickly. It was more of a problem working with Mila. She’s a tough cookie.
MILA KUNIS: You know what? It actually wasn’t so bad. I didn’t have very much physical interaction with the bear. Mine was very circumstantial, whether the bear was to the right of me or to the left of me or to the front of me. I think Mark had it the hardest. For me, it wasn’t so frightening. You have a stick and two eyes. As far as the animation or the look of the bear, I was never too concerned with that. There’s not a question of why MacFarlane can do that, and do it incredibly well.
WAHLBERG: They had done a test, too. We got to see a little bit of the bear, before we started shooting. There was a concern of whether it would go into the scene seamlessly with the chemistry, even though Seth and I were having a great time acting opposite each other, and whether it would translate when you’re putting the bear into the actual scene.
Seth, did the special effects turn out to be more of a pain in the ass than you expected?
MacFARLANE: No, the special effects were surprisingly a smooth part of the process. We tried a fairly new technique of doing it all live on set, to get an improvisational feel, but it went surprisingly smooth. We had two great studios – Tippett and Iloura – that just knocked it out of the park for us.
Did you re-write a lot of Ted’s dialogue in post?
MacFARLANE: Yeah, we had a little bit of liberty to do new Ted lines in post, in case something didn’t work. That was a luxury that we took advantage of. We would screen the movie and, if something didn’t work, we’d try a different line at the next screening. That’s one of the good things about an animated character.
The movie has a lot for college audiences. What do you want them to take away from this film?
WAHLBERG: Well, go back and smoke another joint and see it again. It’s always better the second time around. You were so wasted the first time, you probably missed some jokes.
MacFARLANE: That answer works for me, too.
KUNIS: Me, too.
