Mila Kunis was recently named Esquire’s sexiest woman alive, of 2012, and she has a cover interview to go along with the title. In the interview, Kunis talks about immigrating to the US, having a run in with a powerful studio executive, and how her privacy has vanished with fame.
She talks about her career being threatened over not wanting to do a photoshoot, and when asked by who, she says, “By an executive. Oh, that's not even true. A person higher than an executive. It was like, If you don't do this magazine, you'll never work in this company. I went, "Great." It was the first time that I had someone on the phone tell me that I will never work in this industry again. It wasn't Playboy, but it was a magazine I didn't want to do. It's very simple. I just didn't want to do it. I said I would do that one and that one, just not this one. And this person couldn't accept no. In my twenty-nine years, I've never met someone who lied as much as this person did. You know when little kids look at you with chocolate all over their face, and then you say, "Why did you eat that chocolate?" And they say, "I didn't eat chocolate," and you say, "But you have it on your face." It was worse than that. There are good, honest people who work their asses off and don't reach nearly as much success as this person does...”
Kunis also talks about paparazzi and how much of a harassment they are, saying, “Is it that hard to go grocery shopping? I can't walk out of my house without being photographed, but it doesn't mean that at ten o'clock at night, I can't go to my twenty-four-hour Ralphs.” The interviewer tells her that it’s not that the paparazzi mean harm, they’re just doing their job, but Kunis interrupts and says, “Wishing harm upon me? They totally are. They want nothing more than for you to get in a car accident so they can have a photograph.”
