Mila Kunis Dissed by Star-Ledger Journalist For Being “Cold”
She’s usually a positive and enthusiastic lady so it’s a bit curious that Mila Kunis is getting flack for giving a less-than-stellar interview to the Star-Ledger.
Writer Stephen Whitty chatted with the “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star for 25 minutes on the phone and it’s safe to say he wasn’t impressed.
Whitty explained, "The interview starts going south from the first question, when I make the mistake of asking Mila Kunis how she's feeling. She does not take this well. [She responds], ‘I don't talk about that for publication.’”
"Every question I ask over the next 25 minutes seems to strike her as either dull, insulting or burdened by some sort of agenda,” Stephen added.
Furthermore, according to Whitty, Mila also didn’t want to talk about moving from Ukraine to the USA as a child. Her response- "I've talked about me moving to America in a hundred interviews. It’s the most mundane subject possible, it’s like everyone’s immigrant story. It was much harder for my 13-year-old brother, it was much harder for my parents."
Kunis continued, "I know what your next question is so let's just skip it. You're going to ask me what I think about what’s going on now in Ukraine. Just because I lived there until I was seven doesn’t mean I identify with Ukraine."
"It just seems weird to do an interview about Third Person and then it becomes about Ukraine, and that’s the headline. I do interviews and they seem like they're supposed to be one thing, and the writer has an idea, and then they become something else."
Whitty wondered, "Maybe Kunis is ticked off at all reporters in general, after seeing that Gawker post. Hell, maybe she just picked up the phone after an awful bout of morning sickness (not that I’d risk offending her by asking)."
"To be fair, it could all be me. Certainly in the past she's given a number of great interviews to other writers where, instead of seeming brusque or bored, she seemed candid and involved. So, signing off, I tell her I'm sorry this one seemed to upset her so much,” Stephen added. Kunis replied, “No, no, it was a good interview!”
