Actress Mila Kunis, who is starring in the upcoming summer flick Friends with Benefits with Justin Timberlake, is probably best known for her role on the TV sitcom That 70′s Show, but this year, she made her mark in Hollywood with her daring role in Black Swan. This month, she covers GQ Magazine in…well, almost nothing. Oh, and she claims she’s single in the article….
Mila on her feelings of having a Friends with Benefits-style relationship:
“Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communismâ€”good in theory, in execution it fails. Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?”
“But friends with benefits isn’t a purely sexual relationshipâ€”it’s two people who like each other having sex, not a random hookup. And when two people who like each other have sex, eventually someone catches feelings and everything is fucked. You might be able to treat our relationship as killing time. I might not. I may be in love with you.”
On acting funny:
It’s hard to be funny in general. I think I have a good sense of humor, but I’m not, like, a joke-teller. I get the jokes, which is sometimes half the battle. Believe me, I have no idea why anyone hires me….
On not being worried about her image in movies:
“Image is not a priority for me. I have to think about how I’m going to word this…. A lot of times, people go into this industry with a grandiose idea of fame and think the only way to achieve that is to please everybody. Unfortunately, that can lead to very self-conscious on-screen choices. This industry scrutinizes you. It’ll tear you apart.”
