Sex symbol, pop cultural icon, celebrated actress on the rise -- Mila Kunis does it all. As an American actress, she has appeared on television sitcoms, done voice acting in an iconic animated series and successfully taken on the film world. Impressively, Kunis has earned accolades and critical acclaim in all three ventures, demonstrating a remarkable, versatile acting talent.
Her story is an exercise in the hope and glamour of the American Dream. It reads like a modern fairytale or rags-to-riches movie script: an unknown girl from the Ukraine escapes persecution and moves to the city of angels to eventually become a Hollywood star.
With her career already established by the time she was cast in Black Swan, Darren Arronofsky’s 2010 box office sensation, Mila Kunis experienced international super-stardom once the film hit theaters, wowing audiences with her darkly sensual portrayal of a ballet dancer. The film showcased her acting abilities and put her in the public spotlight.
