Mila Kunis on the 'Huge Difference' Between Raising a Son and Daughter: 'My Boy's Like a Sloth'
"The truth is, women are smarter than men," Mila Kunis said with a laugh Wednesday while describing the differences between her son and daughter
The actress joined Kate McKinnon — her costar in the upcoming summer comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me — on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, dishing about her new film and the individual personalities of her son Dimitri Portwood, 15 months, and daughter Wyatt Isabelle, 3.
“They’re incredibly different,” says Kunis, 34. “My boy’s like a sloth. He’s wonderful, and I love him — ’cause one day he’ll probably watch this and be like, ‘Why did you say that?’ — but the truth is, women are smarter than men. And I have this evident from my two different humans that I created.”

“Girls are just on it and boys are like, ‘Dum da-dum da-dum da-dum,’ ” explains the Bad Moms star. “They’re more like little linebackers going through life, and like … Neanderthal-ish.”
“[I’ll] be like, ‘Pass the cup, please,’ and my boy’s like [points] ungh, ungh,” jokes Kunis. “That’s it! That’s all you get and you’re like, ‘Ungh? What could ungh be?’ You look around, you’re like, ‘Ah, ball!’ There’s just a huge difference.”
Ellen DeGeneres points out jokingly that Dimitri is always being carried in a “contraption” on his dad’s back and never even has to worry about walking.
“He doesn’t walk — he just runs,” says Kunis. “He’s in the hiker backpack a lot when we hike, but that’s ’cause we’re hiking and he’s a year old, guys! He’s lazy.”
