Mila Kunis is inarguably in the midst of her ‘moment’ -- with an acclaimed turn in ‘Black Swan’ as Natalie Portman‘s seductive rival ballerina, the actress flashes dramatic chops to complement her smoky looks.
‘It doesn’t happen very often and I’m not sure it’ll happen again,’ Kunis said of the attention crush. ‘It’s this ride that will ultimately end, but I’m trying to enjoy it.’
For now she’s the ideal magazine cover girl, and Nylon features her on its latest issue. The Ministry caught up with Kunis at an exclusive dinner hosted by the magazine and Armani Exchange at Hollywood’s Redbury Hotel.
We mentioned that in many reviews of the Darren Aronofsky flick she’s been compared to Angelina Jolie, whom Kunis played a younger version of in Jolie’s starmaking film ‘Gia.’
‘I’m like, ‘Dude, thank you. Really? You truly believe that? You need glasses or contacts.’ But I won’t argue with that,’ she said of the parallel. ‘I think it’s absurd, but I’ll take it.’
She’s perfectly comfortable in her own skin, as a matter of fact. Much of the dialogue about her work in ‘Swan’ involved the 20 pounds she lost to portray dancer Lily.
‘I wasn’t oblivious to what people would be talking about,’ she said of the body transformation, as well as some graphic love scenes with Portman.
‘As of this moment, though, I’m 100% OK with my body,’ she said.
