Mila Kunis: From Ukraine to One of Hollywood's Sexiest Women in the World

She was born on August 14, 1983 in Chernivitsi, Ukrainian SSR and emigrated to the United States in 1991. At the tender age of seven-years-old, little did her family know that she would grace the silver screen and be named as one of Hollywood's sexiest women in the world. Her real name is Melena and she landed her first acting role at the age of nine. After taking acting classes at the Beverly Hills Studio, Mila Kunis met her manager: Susan Curtis. It didn't take long for Curtis to recognize the talent she found and soon Mila was attending auditions. Is it anyone's surprise that Mila Kunis landed the very first commercial audition she tried out for? Mila Kunis starred in a Barbie doll commercial, the first of many to come. Her parents encouraged her, as long as she stayed in school.


More commercials followed and soon Mila's face graced catalogues and print ads. She modeled for a clothing line for Guess before her commercial appearances gave room to television roles. Mila Kunis first appeared on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives portraying the character of Hope Williams as a child. Other roles would follow including a guest part on Baywatch, The John Larroquette Show, Hudson Street, Unhappily Ever After, 7th Heaven, Make a Wish, Molly, Santa with Muscles, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, and then her breakthrough role as a young Gia Carangi in the film lead by actress Angelina Jolie. Seven years into her acting career, Mila would land the role of Jackie Burkhart on That '70s Show.

Mila Kunis earned numerous awards and nominations for her performance as Jackie Burkhart including the Young Artist Award, Teen Choice Award and Young Hollywood Award. More nominations and awards would follow as Mila expanded her career and began to take on more adult roles. In 2000, she would lend her voice to the Seth MacFarlane creation Family Guy. She voiced the character of Meg Griffin. She would continue with more voice work for Robot Chicken and The Cleveland Show. She has also performed voice work for video games such as the Family Guy Video Game and Saints Row.

Mila Kunis began to see her filmography expand with films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Max Payne, The Book of Eli, Black Swan and Friends with Benefits. She continued to see more nominations and wins for her movie roles.

There is no doubt that Mila Kunis has proved herself as a beautiful, sexy woman, but she has also shown that she has successfully bridged the gap from child actress to leading lady.
