Mila Kunis is getting honest about how she achieved her dramatic weight loss for her role as a ballerina in Black Swan.
The 32-year-old actress appeared on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show on Tuesday, when she talked about how she got the part of Lily in the critically acclaimed 2010 film. Kunis says she Skyped with director Darren Aronofsky prior to nabbing the role, who sought her out after seeing her in the comedy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Kunis had never had any previous experience in ballet, but trained for three months in order to “fake it.” Kunis acknowledges that she got “crazy thin,” as Stern puts it, weighing about 95 pounds.
“I didn’t starve myself,” Kunis, who’s 5′ 4,” stresses. “I did do it in the healthiest way possible. I don’t recommend anybody ever doing it.” Mila Kunis is not losing a drastic amount of weight to save her supposedly “flatlining career,” despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story. We’re told it’s “totally false.”
According to Star, the actress is stressing out about not getting quality acting offers. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “She’s putting a ton of pressure on herself to land better roles, and she figures that being thinner gives her the best shot at snagging A-list parts.”
The dubious “insider” goes on to claim that in an effort to nab more coveted roles, “Mila’s barely eating and is hitting the treadmill every day.” The tabloid then alleges that the actress’s friends are worried about her, quoting the supposed “source” as saying, “Her goal is now to hit 95 pounds… and she’s scarily close already.”
Kunis also opened up about how her relationship with husband Ashton Kutcher turned romantic after previously just being former That ’70s Show co-stars during her candid interview with Stern, admitting that the two were at first “friends with benefits.”
