Mila Kunis was born in Kiev in the Ukraine, the same city as Milla Jovovich. Her father was an engineer and her mother was a physics teacher. In 1990 the Ukraine split from the USSR and Mia and her family moved to Los Angeles in the hopes of a better life. When she first started learning english she watched Saved by The Bell and The Price is Right and learned her english from the people on these shows, most specifically, Bob Barker. She even had a desire to be one of Barkers' beauties at one point but that all changed when she got on that seventies show.
Having established herself as a rising television star with a series of guest spots and recurring roles, actress Mila Kunis achieved stardom as one of the main characters on the popular sitcom, "That '70s Show" (Fox, 1998-2006), before she even graduated high school. A native of Ukraine who emigrated to America with her family after the fall of the Soviet Union, Kunis served double duty on television, voicing Meg Griffin on the popular animated series "Family Guy" (Fox, 1999-2002; 2005- ) at the same time she donned bell bottoms on the popular Fox sitcom. Meanwhile, she began appearing in movies like "Get Over It" (2001) and the straight-to-DVD sequel "American Psycho II: All American Girl" (2002), while also garnering tabloid headlines for her long-running relationship with former child superstar Macaulay Culkin. Once "That '70s Show" ended its run, Kunis' film career kicked into high gear with roles in smaller films like "After Sex" (2007) and "Boot Camp" (2007), which led to leading roles in bigger fare like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008), "Max Payne" (2008) and "The Book of Eli" (2010). By making her bid as a serious dramatic actress in Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" (2010), Kunis had expanded her repertoire while assuring audiences of better things to come.
