Mila Kunis has a new interview The Age to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of Ted. In the interview, she talks about working with Seth MacFarlane on Ted and how she’s love to go back to television because it’s more ‘stable’.
When talking about Ted and being chosen for the movie, she says, “The true story is I was 24 and Seth was like: “I have a script. You should read it and help me figure out what girl would be right for it.” Over the past four years, through all the revisions, I was like, “How about that person? How about that person?” Then four years later I got old enough to play the part, and he [Seth] was like, “Why don’t you just do it!”
She also talks about her early success with ‘That 70s Show’, saying, “I ended [That ‘70s Show] at 22 and there was a period where I had to make a conscious decision of whether or not I wanted this to be my career. Because this whole time, it was a hobby. It was a very lucrative hobby, but a hobby. I didn’t think I was going to be able to do this for the rest of my life. So here I am. I’m 22. I’m put in an amazing position where I came off of a show for eight years and I don’t have to work for the sake of working. I don’t live a lavish lifestyle, so I could just be smart with my career.
She also adds that she’s interested in going back to television when talking about proving people wrong about her career, saying, “The only way that I could do it and do it right, was to not have an ego about it, in order to prove people wrong. After [That ‘70s Show] I could have gone and done television. Not that I didn’t love doing television because, you know what, I do really want to go back to TV. It’s very steady. It’s 9 to 5 and I get to be home with my family. When I was twenty-two, I was like: ‘I want to travel, I want to see the world and I want to… I want to test myself.’ I know that there’s so much more that I can do.”
