Mila Kunis is making the media rounds lately since Oz, The Great and Powerful is coming out soon, which means she’s giving a lot of soundbites to various publications, this time to Marie Claire. And again, she’s chatting about how acting is great and all, but she really wishes she could just stay at home and still get paid for it.
“To say my life hasn’t changed would be a lie. It has changed, I don’t really know how. I can’t complain, not that I am complaining, but I can’t leave my house as freely as I used to. But I’ve also traveled a lot for work. I have been very lucky.
“I want to explore other parts of this industry to see what aspects of it I can get myself into, so that I can… work out of home maybe? Like producing. Then I can have, like, a life, in one location.”
“I don’t think I can do this three-movies-a-year thing. It’s too much. There comes a point in your life where you want to be… home.
“I am not here to appease the world. No, listen, it’s the truth – I don’t know. I guess to figure it out and have fun doing it. You get very limited time in the grand scheme of things.”
Well, we know Mila’s not one to “appease the world” and generally doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks of her, but she’s got enough money now that she could just, you know, take a break and rediscover her passion for the craft of acting or whatever if she’s getting fed up with it. I do feel her on the being home, thing, though. There’s nowhere I’d rather be… ever.

I totally get her. I die to be home. I just love being home.
Me too. I wish her all the luck in Hollywood.
Well, ya know, honey — if all you wanted to do was act, but be left alone, you should have stuck to local theater. Oh, but that’s right, you wanted all the nice things in life, too, like flying first class to Hawaii whenever you feel like it, or wanting drive a Range Rover instead of an Accord. Please! Stop whining!
