You wanna know who’s charming? Mila Kunis. No, really – she is. She did a sit-down for Harper’s Bazaar‘s April issue (where has this year gone already, seriously), where she talked about all of the starlets and their leaked photos, how she’s totally OK with her “weight gain,” and how she just adored being in a long-term relationship with
the prisoner of war Macaulay Culkin (it was “fantastic”).
How she prevents nude scandals: “Well, I don’t send naked photos.” Then she laughs. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” Mila emerged from Hackergate unscathed, unlike fellow actress Scarlett Johansson, who was allegedly a victim of the same culprit. “The sad thing is, she shouldn’t even have to explain who it’s for,” Mila says.
On Mac: Her last serious boyfriend was Macaulay Culkin, whom she dated for eight years, until 2010. “It was fantastic,” she says. “I mean, I honestly think being single’s great. Being in a relationship’s great. It’s all about the timing. I loved it.”
What she does in off-time: “I don’t go out very often. I prefer to stay home and have a nice little beverage and watch television.” She cooks too. “I can make anything out of leftovers. I want to be a judge on Top Chef.” She works out with a trainer three times a week, mostly because that enables her to keep eating and drinking. “My glass of wine and I are besties.”
Gaining weight, post Black Swan: After her drastic weight loss for Black Swan (20 pounds off her already lean frame), Mila notes that her body “has never been the same. My shape is different. When I got down to 95 pounds, I was muscles, like a little brick house, but skin and bones. When I gained it back, it went to completely different areas.” Like the rear? “No, I’d be happy if my ass got bigger. All the weight that left my chest went to my side hip, my stomach.” She’s wary of another role that would require a body transformation. “I’m not going to say I’d look forward to it, but if an offer came along, I’d do it.”
On dating: I don’t get asked out. This past year, I haven’t been home, so who’s going to ask me?”
On plastic surgery and enhancements: “I will not put a needle in my body unless I have a medical reason,” she says, “but ask me in 10 years. Right now, I’m like, ‘I’m going to embrace it,’ but … I’m probably going to want to have something done. I have no doubt.”
On first impressions: “People have interpretations of what you’re supposed to be like,” she says. “If you’re unattractive and overweight, you must have a great personality. If you’re attractive, then you must not be the nicest person. People are always taken aback that I’m easygoing but not necessarily stupid.”

Kunis met her date, Sgt. Scott Moore, at the gala. She wore a simple black gown to the formal event, which was held in Greenville, North Carolina. (Sgt. Moore only recently returned from Afghanistan.)
There are only two photos from the Ball, and not much else in the way of story, so, uh.
Here’s something! In less-reported news, Kristin Cavallari also accepted an invitation to a Marine Corps Ball, though this one was extended via Twitter. She attended the gala on Thursday night, looking absolutely killer in an aquamarine Grecian dress. And—this is the cutest part of the story—Cavallari stayed for the entire event. The girl knows how to lock a party down!

Remember that time that everybody heard about Mila Kunis having racy pictures of Justin Timberlake on her phone? Remember when one of those pictures was supposed to be his penis? Well, you can just keep on dreaming about finding the fabled JT dick pic, because it’s just. Not. Real. Or so Justin and Mila’s people would have you believe…
‘At no time did Mr. Timberlake and Ms. Kunis exchange inappropriate texts or emails… The insistence that there is any inappropriate correspondence between the two parties is entirely false. We would like to confirm that the photo addressed in the media of Ms. Kunis was in fact not from any phone but from an inactive email account that has not existed in three years. In regards to the other photos in question, they were never exchanged between the two parties. In closing, Mr. Timberlake would like us to make it clear that while he might write songs about putting things in boxes, he never has and definitely doesn’t make a habit of taking any photos of them and sending them… Ms. Kunis would like us to add that while she is a fan of the song, she does not have nor has ever had photos of any male parts in her possession.’
This is the cheekiest statement ever, isn’t it? It does absolutely nothing to make me think that there’s nothing going on between these two, and I really don’t think they even tried. However, the “Dick in a Box” reference is extremely appreciated.

There is a rumor going around that they are ring-shopping and getting engaged. No. While she may be looking at rings, he is not. These tales of ring-shopping and wedding-planning are pure gossip supplied by her publicist to make people think that their client is every man’s dream girl. She sure is… if your dream girl would never sleep with you. You see, she is a lesbian. A very pretty lesbian, but a lesbian nonetheless. Always has been. He was her beard. Even though they are still friendly (cordial would probably be more accurate ) he still agrees to be seen with her occasionally to keep tongues wagging. It’s over, and he has moved on to another hot actress… who really does sleep with him.
Ok, you might remember that I don’t care for Biel, but think about it. Remember that time that Justin called her the “most special person” he’s ever known and that he didn’t want to talk about the break-up because “I have to protect things that are dear to me – for instance, her”? She’s his BFF, you guys! That’s why you always see them doing bro stuff like riding bikes and jogging and looking not-so-in love. Oh, and remember this ensemble? Throw in all the rumors of Justin and Mila hooking up, and I believe I’ve just thoroughly convinced myself, at least.
What about you?

But! The photos’ subject matter might surprise you! Of the four photos the hacker leaked, two were reportedly of Friends with Benefits costar Justin Timberlake. In one photo, he’s “laying [sic] shirtless in a bed.” In another photograph, Timberlake is wearing a pair of pink panties on his head. How sexy.
There’s also a photo of a peen, but so far, no one has been able to verify the peen’s identity. And then there was a photo of Mila in a bubble bath—but only her head is visible.
The hacker also procured text message exchanges between Kunis and Timberlake. Poor Jessica Biel!
Lainey asks what I was just wondering, myself: what in heaven’s name are people saving on their cell phones?
I only recently decided to move the most incriminating photos off my iPhone and store them elsewhere. Since you are wondering, they were all photos of my boyfriend—specifically, there’s the one photo of him wearing a cat. Oh, there was also the one of my name shaved into his groin hair. You think I’m kidding? I’m not kidding. Ask anyone at the bar.
What’s on your cell phone?

Mila Kunis has been working her way into my heart lately. Sometime between 2005 when I developed my slow burning love for That 70′s Show and last week when she spoke Russian, she became one of my tip top favorite ladies. But now she did this interview with the British Glamour, and I think that maybe she might need to slow her roll, just a little.
From Glamour via Amy Grindhouse:
On being insanely attractive: ‘[Winning the Spike TV’s Guys’ Choice award this summer for the Holy Grail of Hot was] insane. Listen, I couldn’t be happier to get any of this, because I think it’s hysterical and it makes all my friends laugh. If somebody finds me attractive, God bless them, I think it’s fantastic.’
On dating rumors: ‘Being single, I find myself not being able to be in a room with a man without, the next day, I’m dating that man [according to the tabloids]. That happened for a solid six months [after Black Swan].’
On Justin Timberlake: ‘He’s incredibly funny, we laughed a lot on set… Humour is an amazing quality to have. I like sarcasm, satire, self-deprecating humour. But I also think there’s something to be said for not looking for anything and being pleasantly surprised.’
On dating Justin Timberlake: ‘[Rumours are] an unfortunate thing that comes with the circumstances, but there’s no truth to it whatsoever.’
On Hollywood: ‘No one’s curing cancer in this industry, remember? It’s not changing the world. It’s just entertainment, an art, a form of escapism. My friends and family are my number one thing in life, but you need a healthy balance. This is a phenomenal job, but the most important lesson I’ve learnt is that you never want to let your only source of happiness come from something that’s so filled with uncertainty.’
On weight loss: ‘I’m a huge foodie, I love food. But when people say, ‘I can’t lose weight’, no no no, you can. Your body can do everything and anything, you just have to want to do it.’
I think that Mila’s charming, I do. The whole “if somebody finds me attractive, God bless them” bit? So adorable. But I don’t think it’s entirely fair for a woman who’s immeasurably gifted, genetically, who’s never struggled with her weight, at least not in a major way, and who has the means to hire trainers and buy healthier foods to call every single person who actually does struggle with weight out like this. I’m not saying there’s no truth to what she’s saying, I think there definitely definitely is, I just don’t think it sounds right coming from someone like Mila.
