MILA KUNIS COVERS MARIE CLAIRE NOVEMBER ‘POWER’ ISSUE ON NEWSSTANDS OCTOBER 17
As an actress, she’s making the comedic movies she wants (A Bad Moms Christmas in theaters November 1st), and as a producer, she’s elevating women’s roles on-screen. Building a career on her own terms is just how Mila Kunis rolls.
Inside the issue, Kunis is candid on the hurdle of making women-centric content in Hollywood, parenting, how she defines power vs. success, and more.
On the hurdle of making women-centric content in Hollywood: “I do sometimes come back from work like, ‘What the f*ck?’ But anger is good. It motivates us to strive to be better.”
From self-proclaimed “spiraler” to Zen master: “I overthink. I’m super-dramatic. Something not that bad, in my mind, becomes a catastrophe. I go from zero to a hundred. It’s a problem.”
On what motherhood has taught her: “What motherhood shows you is how selfless you can get. I’m ragged tired. Who cares? My kids are healthy, I’m happy.’”
On what she wants to teach her daughter: “What I want my daughter to learn from me is the value of hard work.”
On power versus success: “The real question is: Does power equal success? I mean, look at Trump. Trump is powerful. It doesn’t mean he’s successful, right?”
On today’s political landscape and her hope for the future: “I have hope for the future. None of this is permanent, this is a phase…and we will come out of it as a country.”
