Mila Kunis Talks Weight Loss, Quitting Acting in Nylon Magazine

November 27th, 2010 // 2 Comments

Mila Kunis reveals how she nearly gave up acting and how her weight loss for Black Swan was a bit of a wake-up call about the industry she works in.

In the photos, she kinda reminds me of Mischa Barton back in the good old days and in some photos she reminds me of Marion Cotillard. What do you think?

Read tidbits of the interview after the jump!

On contemplating a career change:
“I was like, ‘Alright, this has been a god run, but I’m done’. I wanted to rethink my life for a minute because I didn’t think acting could be a career. This is the worst industry you can put yourself in because there’s no security whatsoever. I mean, none. The whole thing is based so much on opinion and nobody is wrong. That person can think I’m great, that person can think I suck, and they’re both right. I was like, ‘Can I really do this for the rest of my life?’”

On losing weight for Black Swan:

“My mom freaked out. She was like, ‘You have to promise me his isn’t going to affect you.’ I was like, ‘I promise it won’t, but it might take me a little time to be OK with having a little more fat on me.’ I could see why this industry is so f—-d up, because … I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I had no shape, no boobs, no ass … all you saw was the bone. I was like, ‘This looks gross.’ In real life I looked disgusting but in photographs and on film, it looked amazing.”

I always think it’s scary when actors have to lose a lot of weight or put on the pounds for a role. I just think that must have a toxic affect on one’s body to undergo such a drastic change in a short period of time.

    People don’t truly understand the risks of being overweight. Why do most want to lose weight? Most would say to look better. Looking better certainly is a benefit of losing weight, but this shouldn’t be the sole reason to lose weight. There is a 1000 pound gorilla in the room and it’s often ignored. Being overweight for a long period of time kills thousands of people each year.
