Mila Kunis: From That '70s Show to That Bad Mom
HER BIG BREAK
For nearly a decade, Mila Kunis played spoiled high school student Jackie Burkhart on hit TV series That '70s Show. Starring Topher Grace, now-husband Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama and Danny Masterson, the coming-of-age comedy catapulted fresh-faced Kunis – who was 14 when she signed on and 22 when the show ended – to stardom. "I think for life, we will be friends," the actress said of her castmates in 2010.
HER FIRST FAMOUS BOYFRIEND
The raven-haired actress began dating child star Macaulay Culkin – best known for his roles in Home Alone, My Girl and Richie Rich – in 2001 at the height of her That '70s Show fame. Despite dating Culkin for eight years, Kunis maintains that she had no intentions of getting married to the actor. "Who knows, I honestly just don't know," Kunis told Howard Stern when asked if she was in love with Culkin. "Before we started dating, since I was 16, I told my dad 'Just so you know, I don't believe in marriage.' "
HER FIRST FILMS
Shortly after That '70s Show ended its eigh-year run, Kunis turned to the big screen – scoring roles in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Max Payne before taking on the critically acclaimed film Black Swan that paved the way for a slew of box office hits like Friends with Benefits and Ted.
HER FIRST GLOBE NOD
Kunis' role in 2010's Black Swan, opposite Natalie Portman, earned the actress her first Golden Globe nomination in 2011. "For me to be nominated in any awards show is such a shock," she told MTV upon finding out the news. "I come from such a small town in the Ukraine! It wasn't like at the age of 9 I said this is where I'd be at 27. This is not where I thought I'd be. I never thought this would happen, let alone at 27!"
HER NEXT ROMANTIC MOVE
It was meant to be! Despite having been friends since working together on That '70s Show, Kunis says that she and Kutcher weren't romantically involved until one fateful night at an awards show when the actress ran into the Two and a Half Men alum. "I see this guy and I see his back and he's really tall," Kunis recalled of seeing Kutcher, who had just split from Demi Moore. "Then he just turns around and it was literally like if we were in a movie, the music would start playing and the violins would go. I think for the first time ever he took my breath away – I was like f---, he's good-looking." What followed was three months of casual dating before the duo got serious. "We would never be together based on the people that we used to be," she said, adding that they needed to grow before becoming a couple.
HER FIRST DAUGHTER
After getting engaged in February 2014, Kunis and Kutcher took the next big step in their lives: having a baby. "I would never trade it for [anything]. Ever ever," Kunis told Entertainment Tonight of being a parent to 21-month-old daughter Wyatt Isabelle, whom she and then-fiancé Kutcher welcomed in 2014. "But I know that when we decided to have a kid, we were ready to no longer be selfish – at least start the process. Because innately, as humans, we're very selfish people, and we really wanted to have a family." (The stars are expecting their second child together later this year.)
HER FIRST (AND ONLY) MARRIAGE
Following the birth of Wyatt, Kunis and Kutcher decided to tie the knot in July 2015 – much to their surprise. "We started dating with the idea we were both never going to get married," she told Howard Stern. "A year later we were like, 'Tomorrow let's [get married].' "
HER NEXT BAD MOVE
She's back! After taking time out to raise Wyatt, Kunis headed back to work in the upcoming comedy Bad Moms – opposite Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn – which has the actress channeling a single mom gone rogue. "[It was] the fastest shoot I've ever been on in my life," Kunis told POPSUGAR of the experience. "I think at one point I was like, 'We have five days left?' I'm actually sad about it. I very rarely get sad about any movie [shoot ending]."
