How Mila Kunis, Esquire Sexiest Woman, Keeps Her Head Straight

How Mila Kunis, Esquire Sexiest Woman, Keeps Her Head Straight 1Mila Kunis has come a long way since starring on sitcom “That ’70s Show.” Even being named Esquire’s sexiest woman alive doesn’t go to her head. “What I do and who I am are two different things,” she tells the magazine.

Kunis, 29, grew up in Hollywood. She appeared in more than 15 commercials and on “Baywatch” twice before she was 14. So she puts a premium on keeping grounded.

“What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be,” she tells the magazine.

Mila Kunis Exudes Smoldering Sexuality

“But whatever it is, it is no longer who they are. So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says.

“People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be. And I think that I’ve consciously separated my two lives,” she explains.

“I love what I do. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. But when I’m done with work, I’m done with work.”

Her outlook seems to have served her well. Her smoldering sexuality was evident early when she was tapped to play a young Angelina Jolie in the 1998 movie about Gia Carangi, a fashion model who died of AIDs in 1986.

The same year she landed her role as Jackie on “That ’70s Show,” which ran for 200 episodes through 2006. Although she has a long filmography, 2010 was her breakout year with three films, “The Book of Eli,” with Denzel Washington, “Date Night” and “Black Swan,” with Natalie Portman.
