Mila Kunis Won’t Diet Just Because She’s An Actress

Sure, it’s pretty stupid for someone who’s already skinny as hell to take a stand against dieting (that’s like me taking a stand for going to bed at 9pm on Fridays – already done!), but Mila Kunis gets a pass because I feel like it. And because she’s pretty great.

From The Sydney Telegraph:

“You know, I stay fit, but I dieted for Black Swan. I think it’s OK to do that for the part, but not just for being an actor,” she explains. “Actors [in Hollywood] starve themselves to play the normal girl – which, for me, is an issue. If someone’s playing a sick person then it’s OK for them to diet for the part. But to diet just to play the love interest or the girl next door, that’s absolutely not OK. You shouldn’t starve yourself; you should be able to live your life.”

I mean, do I necessarily believe that Mila Kunis doesn’t diet, or at least seriously watch what she eats and work out 4-5 days per week to stay her shape? Not really, but it doesn’t really bother me in her case, mostly because she has a small frame and probably a high metabolism. You know, whatever. As a side note, I hate the tendencies stars have to insist that they don’t really do much to look as good as they do. Like, homegirl, we know you spent your first check on new teeth, hair extensions and a personal trainer. I’m not hatin’! (If anyone wants to foot the bill so I can get some Lumineers, holler at me.)

Mila also stayed her chill self as she expressed her personal philosophy to being grounded in the midst of celebrity life:

“I do take a conscious effort to step back and acknowledge where I’m at, and at least appreciate it,” she explains. “I often think to myself, this is great for what it is, but now it’s time to move on. You have to be present and stay in the moment or you get completely caught up, and miss so many things. I’ve been doing this for 20 years – I know, crazy – but it’s my career, and while I love what I do, it’s showbiz. It’s grand and it’s wonderful, but it’s not real life. Even though people think it is real life.”

I don’t know how many people (who aren’t idiots) think it’s real life, but I do agree that it’s good to stay present and appreciative regardless of your path in life. Also, Mila Kunis has been acting for 20 years?

  • No, she won’t diet because she smokes too much cheeba. My friend sold to her when she was staying in a hotel for the first night, and didn’t know where to score any.

  • Odds are that if you have a friend that tokes the doobage then it’s safe to say that you more than likely do too BUT soo what if she tokes the gonja greenie. She did that moments before I Tapped that Ass, I didn’t mind.

  • You have to admit that those last few photos of her with Ass-Hat Kutcher in no make-up and sweats were on the edge of fug. She looked like girls I used to know back in college who lived on guacamole and beer….porky, porky!
