Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are probably aware that Hollywood hottie Mila Kunis is… well… everywhere. Kunis fans know her from her time on “That 70’s Show” as Jackie Burkhart (with then young costar Ashton Kutcher) and her long running-gig as voice of daughter Meg Griffin on “Family Guy.”
Most recently, she’s been in the news for being quite the patriot – Kunis accepted U.S. Marine Sgt. Scott Moore’s YouTube video invitation to attend the Marine Corps Ball as his date on November 18. If you ask me, she’s the lucky one.
But since her Golden-Globe nominated appearance for her racy role as Natalie Portman’s lesbian fantasy villain in the critically acclaimed film “Black Swan” in 2010… Kunis’s career has skyrocketed. GQ was the latest media outlet to snag an interview with the busy young celebrity.
In predictable fashion, the GQ author highlights her good looks, booming career, and carefree, boyish nature as a female comedian. GQ began the interview with a question about her latest film “Friends with Benefits,” which highlights the fantasy of casual sex relationships. But its Kunis’s incredibly candid and somewhat political response to the failing reality of a “f**k buddies” relationship that has me scratching my head.
GQ: Your new movie is called Friends with Benefits. Ever been in one of those relationships?
Mila Kunis: Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails. Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?
Back up. Did an A-list celebrity just admit that communism is an utter failure? Yes. And she didn’t reluctantly admit it because she was in a tiresome interview that pressed her on her political ideology. No, she used communism as the anecdote for something that is “good in theory, in execution it fails.” My hat is off to you Kunis for your brave and unprovoked response. (Okay, by Tinseltown standards, she’s brave. Hollywood isn’t exactly known for cranking out political geniuses.)
