Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are the weirdest couple ever, but it looks like they’re here to stay a while longer because rumour has it they may be planning a wedding in the UK in the near future. Mila’s been filming Jupiter Ascending over “across the pond”, as they say (I hate that expression) and apparently the couple have grown fond of it. I don’t blame them on that front – I miss England every day and can’t wait to get back.
Anyhoo, from The Daily Star (so BIG grain of salt suggested):
Because the Hollywood couple have set their hearts on tying the knot in Britain once Ashton’s divorce from ex Demi Moore, 50, is finalised.
They’ve even started drawing up a list of Blighty’s best locations for the nuptials.
A friend of the hot pair told us: “Mila and Ashton have fallen in love with the UK.
“They are desperate to get married as soon as possible because they want to start a family and are slightly old-fashioned about these things.
“The first place they thought of was Stonehenge, but they’ve also been looking at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.
“Mila loves the idea of a stately home or something in the English countryside.”
“Although the venue may be spectacular, the wedding itself will be low-key.
“It’s expected it will just be Ashton, Mila and a few family and friends.”

Mila Kunis AKA Meg Griffin, was apparently really mean to a 12 year old fan. National Enquirer reports that the fan approached Ms. Kunis at a roller skating rink in the valley (lol) and asked if she could get a photo with her. Kunis literally turned her back on her.
The little girl gushed that she was a HUGE fan and just loved Mila’s movies. But Mila just stared with frosty eyes when the girl asked if she could take a photo with her. Without even giving her so much as a brief smile or thank you, Mila literally turned her back on the kid, whispered something to her friend and skated off.
“Then the friend told the girl, ‘Mila doesn’t want to be bothered, so don’t approach her, or speak to her, again.’ The kid turned beet red and began to tear up as she watched Mila skating around laughing with her friends!”
Ms. Kunis has been in London up until at least 3 days ago, so unless she just got back or this anecdote isn’t recent, maybe the fan was wrong and that chick wasn’t actually Mila Kunis.
IF this happened, here are my thoughts. And these are my thoughts about celebrities in general. I don’t have anything against Mila Kunis. She’s just the example here, since this is a story about her. You can replace “Mila Kunis” with the name of pretty much anyone else with a similar career.
Celebrities don’t belong to the public and they have their own lives. They don’t have to do anything for us. They don’t have to take photos or sign autographs or do shit. And they don’t have to be nice about it either. That being said, f-ck you, Mila Kunis. Though you’re talented, you still got a damn lucky break going from That 70′s Show to the A-list and if you’re going to be okay with putting your face all over magazines and giving interviews and putting yourself out there for the public, then you need to be okay when the public — the people who support your career with their money every time they go see your films — asks for 30 seconds for a photo. I don’t care if this happens to you 15 times a day. That’s still 10x better than having a normal 9 -5 job. You’ve clearly forgotten what it was like for you when you started out and no one knew your name, and maybe you don’t realize how many actors who are just as talented as you are aren’t getting the work that you’re getting, and how many of them would be so happy to be where you are. Yeah, I know, “Ugh, this is my life here, am I obligated to do this for the rest of my entire LIFE?” yes, too bad, that’s the weird thing about being a celebrity, and even weirder is the day when no one will want to take a photo with you anymore, because someone younger will have replaced you, and no one will care about you, and you can have the entire roller rink all to yourself. If you don’t want people to bother you, don’t play into the Hollywood publicity machine.
In conclusion, shut up, Meg.

Mila Kunis is of course a beautiful young woman, and The Huffington Post agrees. But when they posted this photo of the actress bare-faced, everyone freaked out. The comments section exploded, with people accusing Huff Po of shaming young women, others saying Kunis should give her make up artist a raise and more saying that she still looks beautiful.
The Mirror couldn’t help but point out that she “looks a bit puffy.”
Good lord. I’m just so thankful that the lovely Ms. Kunis looks tired sometimes, too. Maybe if we didn’t Photoshop our celebrities to hell, people wouldn’t be so shocked when they see photos of how they really look.

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.

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?
