Her nickname is “Goldfish” because of her short attention span.
Kunis was only 14 when she auditioned for her role on That 70’s Show. All actors had to be 18, so she lied about her age during the audition. The producers loved her so much that they made an exception for her age.

Kunis read for the part of Meg Griffin on Family Guy three times before landing the voice role. She was told to slow down her speech and enunciate her words, which helped her get the gig.
Mila started taking acting classes after school when she was just 9 years old. She never thought anything would come from it, but an agent discovered her at a public showcase and she landed her first job in a Barbie commercial shortly after.
Mila didn’t even audition for Black Swan, as Natalie Portman referred her for the part.

She sustained several injuries while shooting, including a torn ligament and dislocated shoulder.
The first book she read in English was Return to Oz and credits The Wizard of Oz as her favorite movie. It must’ve been great to star in Oz the Great and Powerful back in 2013!
