Mila Kunis Named Esquire Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ [PHOTOS]
The 29-year-old ‘Ted’ actress will be on the cover of the publication’s November issue, where you’ll find an interview and, of course, a bunch of steamy photos. And honestly, it would be really easy to hate her if she weren’t so damned likeable.
For starters, she is completely unimpressed with her star status, saying, “I don’t think I’m a celebrity. I’m a working actress. I think there’s a difference.”
And it’s perhaps because of that that she doesn’t let herself get wrapped up in silly honors like, you know, being dubbed the sexiest woman on the planet. “I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am,” she said.
“And so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn’t make them proud.”
Speaking of her mom and dad, Kunis is a Ukrainian immigrant who didn’t move to the US until she was 8 years old. It’s an exotic tale, but she’s less interested in telling her own story than she is that of her parents:
“My immigration story is being made into something bigger than it needs to be … It has nothing to do with me … My parents [are] the ones who went through hell and back, who gave everything up. I didn’t do anything. I was 8 years old, and I tagged along. And my parents made me feel safe. I didn’t make those decisions. So I can’t take responsibility for it.”
There’s a lot more to the interview (and really, you should read it, if for no other reason than to be reminded that Hollywood is not just populated with vapid attentionwhores), but then we get to the photos — and hating her becomes just a little bit easier.
