Oz the Great and Powerful is probably going to be really good in a way that’s completely disconnected from the original Wizard of Oz and that’s okay. I mean, come on – admitted professional deep-throater James Franco as the Wizard? Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz? I’m going to see it (or download it), for sure.
One thing that will definitely not be great about it is that Mariah Carey is doing the theme song. It’s a new track called ‘Almost Home’ that sounds like a demo she would have recorded in 1987 before getting a deal and a decent producer. While the full thing won’t be out until tomorrow, you can listen to a 30 second preview below:

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?

Look, I love Mila Kunis. I loved her on That 70s Show, then I loved her in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, then I loved her in Black Swan, and I loved her in everything in between. I think she’s just wonderful. I would want to be her friend.
One of the things that I love about this lady is that sometimes, she just doesn’t give a f-ck. She’ll go out in sweatpants and no makeup, and she doesn’t care. She doesn’t put on a pound of makeup just because some stranger is probably going to want to take pictures of her. She just doesn’t care.
But, as always, one lady’s treasure can be another lady’s trash. And it looks like for a lot of people, Mila Kunis’ sweatpants make her trash:
Sexiest? More like schlubbiest woman alive.
Sweatpants-loving Mila Kunis is a guy’s girl – and she’s got the wardrobe to prove it.
Seemingly eager to shed her Sexiest Woman Alive title – Esquire Magazine crowned the Ukrainian-born beauty last November – Kunis is rarely spotted these days in anything except dumpy, frumpy gym wear.
Apparently at chez Kunis, it’s laundry day everyday.
From morning coffee runs with boyfriend Ashton Kutcher to canoodling in the West Village, walking the dog or lunch in L.A., Kunis and Kutcher are a match made in casual dressing hell.
At first, it was cute to watch them smooching in Central Park in matching T-shirts or see her run out in the morning without painting on a full face of makeup and cavorting Kardashian-style for the paparazzi. But now it’s time to shed the elastic waistband and invest in a hairbrush.
She’s a Golden Globe-nominated actress for “Black Swan,” not a member of Justin Bieber’s entourage.
“I love her, and though I can certainly relate to her craving for comfort, there really is a better way to do it,” says Mary Kate Steinmiller, senior fashion market editor at Teen Vogue.
Unlike other Hollywood A-listers Gwen Stefani, Jessica Chastain and Jessica Alba with street style to match their flawless red-carpet looks, Kunis insists on dressing like an unwashed teenage boy.
Hot mama Gwen Stefani instantly adds glamour to everything from a plain tank top and jeans to an oversized cape with a bold red lip and oversized shades. Jessica Alba, the master of casual chic, is constantly photographed around L.A. in comfy T-shirts and jeans accessoried with a designer handbag, colorful scarf, cute flats and denim jacket. And Jessica Chastain, currently in “The Heiress” turns Broadway into her personal runway everytime she shows up for a show in fitted coats, statement-making shoes and impeccable accessories.
To keep it casual but still chic, Teen Vogue’s Steinmiller suggests that Kunis try silk pajama-style pants by Piamita, stretchy denim leggings by Citizens of Humanity or cashmere Juicy Couture track pants in a bold color.
“I will never utter the word ‘jegging,’” she says about the superstretchy Citizen of Humanity jeans. “I know the loose freedom of a sweatpant hardly seems comparable to a legging jean, but these feel like wearing nothing.”
As for that we-just-rolled-out-of-bed-because-we-are-so-in-love hair that she can’t seem to wash away, it’s time to start throwing it up into a messy top knot, quick side braid or pick up some dry shampoo to soak up some of that greasy mane.
I don’t know, guys. I think it’s fun to talk about fashion, but in terms of what people chose to wear to events, not really what people chose to wear when they’re going about their lives. Especially when it’s something as boring as sweatpants and a hoodie. It’s not even fun to talk about, and it’s not like we haven’t all gone through a period where we just didn’t feel like putting that much effort into going outside.
But I need to take a moment to cosign on the suggestion of jeggings. Jeggings forever.

But of course, how could she not be? He‘s allowed to walk around looking like this ^^ while she’s supposed to have full f-cking airbrush makeup on while exercising instead of looking like … well, this? Sure, that’s fair. Completely fair.
But even though you might want to chalk Mila’s “whatever” face up to the idea that maybe Ashton’s just talking about the fat grams in his turkey sausage bagel, let me tell you, it’s not. No, that picture up there is pretty priceless—it says a lot. It actually says things like how Mila’s probably got the upper hand in this situation, and how she’s really only using Ashton for sex and maybe a little public humiliation. It says how Ashton is just a miserable asshole who doesn’t even look happy when his girlfriend looks like this, and just how pathetic that is:
See? Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. All I know is that if you can’t please everyone, then you should probably just punch Ashton Kutcher in the face, because that seems appropriate in almost any circumstance.

So take it with a grain of salt, but hey. From Star Magazine:
When Ashton Kutcher started dating Mila Kunis earlier this year, he thought he’d hit the romantic jackpot – not only was she Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2012, he’s been crushing on her ever since their days as costars on That ‘70s Show. But as the couple’s relationship has grown, so has Mila – to the tune of nearly 50 lbs, much of it put on for her upcoming film Blood Ties – and insiders say Ashton’s feeling uneasy about his girlfriend’s transformation.
“When they started dating, he thought Mila was one of the hottest girls in the world,” a source tells Star. “But in the eight months or so they’ve been together, she’s totally let herself go.”
A big part of the issue – perhaps even more than her dress size – is Mila’s increasingly frumpy appearance. Mila has been photographed looking tired in baggy sweats and no makeup consistently.
“When Ashton broke up with wife Demi Moore, he was ready to have a relationship with a low maintenance girl, but now he’s saying Mila is TOO low maintenance,” says our source. “Demi may have been crazy, but she always made sure to look good for Ashton, whereas Mila acts like she couldn’t care less.”
When Ashton dropped a major hint recently in the form of a $250,000 Christmas makeover package, Mila took the gift as a huge insult. “She told Ashton is he wanted a fake, plastic girl, he should have stayed with Demi. That’s when he snapped and told her, ‘You’re worse than Demi!’”
Oh burn. “You’re worse than Demi“? Who the f-ck says that? Oh, right—Ashton Kutcher allegedly does. And though it’s Star, I can still kind of see this being a real thing. Ashton definitely seems to be the type to bail on a girl who isn’t looking her best at all times, and yeah, Star has posted a lot of incredible shit over the years, but this is still probably the most believable thing they’ve run with.
Whatever, though. No surprise. Ashton’s totally That Douche who wants nothing more than a hot, relevant trophy wife and a hot nobody to bang on the side. If Mila‘s OK with that then these two might have a shot. If not? Well. You saw how quickly Ashton moved on post-Demi—I don’t think Mila would really be any different in Ashton’s eyes anyway.

This is what Mila looks like today. Well, I don’t know—maybe not today, per se, as she probably changed her clothes since this photo was taken yesterday afternoon, but you get the idea. And friends, it’s a far, far cry from this, the photo that really made us think that she’s carrying the fetus of Ashton Kutcher:
So what happened in a period of a few weeks, I don’t know. Maybe she’s got Spanx on today, or maybe she was just uber-bloated the day of the prego photo. Who knows.
It might be just as well for Mila, however, as she’s got a lot on her plate these days. Sources say that Mila is in the midst of
From the Hollywood Reporter:
The actress will executive produce Meridian Hills, a drama set in 1972 that explores the women’s liberation movement, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Sydney Sidner (The Rite) will pen the drama and executive produce the CBS Television Studios effort alongside Chris Keyser, Kunis and the Tannenbaum Co.’s Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. Robot Chicken’s Lisa Sterbakov, who worked with Kunis on the Adult Swim series, and the Black Swan actress’ managers Cami Curtis and Susan Curtis are also on board to exec produce.
Meridian Hills is set in a boozy Midwest country club in 1972, during an era when the Equal Rights Amendment was just beginning. The drama follows a young, newly married woman who joins the Junior League and discovers an eclectic group of other young women who become unlikely allies in her quest to change the system.
The Junior League, founded in 1901 by Mary Harriman, is a nonprofit organization of women with the goal of improving communities through volunteer work, civic leadership and training.
Hm. Sounds interesting. And Mila sure does like her 70′s-themed things, so I suppose it all really makes sense. Plus, if you’re going to date Ashton Kutcher, you have to have some kind of political or civic activity happening, because duh. Non-profit foundations are how Ashton Kutcher makes his money, because God knows it’s not his movies.
