Mila Kunis            

Actress Known for "That '70s Show" & for Voicing Meg Griffin on "Family Guy"

Actress Mila Kunis was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, in 1983. At the age of 7 she immigrated with her family to Los Angeles, where she began taking acting lessons. After appearing in several television commercials, Kunis landed a co-starring role in the Fox sitcom "That '70s" Show in 1998. She also did voice work for the cartoon series "Family Guy." Kunis has since branched out into films. She's co-starred in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Black Swan," "Friends with Benefits" and "Ted."

As a young girl, Kunis landed spot work on a host of television programs, from NBC's "The John Larroquette Show" to The WB Television Network's "7th Heaven."

In 1998, Kunis (who had simplified her first name to Mila) caught her first big break when, at 14, she landed the role of Jackie Burkhart in the new Fox sitcom "That '70s Show." She was cast as a whiny, self-absorbed rich girl, allowing her to perfect and showcase her comic timing. Her work on the program soon led her to Fox's "Family Guy" cartoon, where she supplied the voice for the character Meg Griffin.

Even while she managed a busy television career, Kunis also branched out into film. She co-starred with Kirsten Dunst in the drama "Get Over It." A year later, the actress was cast alongside Macaulay Culkin in "American Psycho II: All American Girl."

Following the end of "That '70s Show" in 2006, Kunis started taking on more film work. In 2008 she landed a breakout role as a hotel concierge named Rachel in the comedy hit "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," which also starred Jason Segel and Russell Brand. Audiences and critics raved about her performance.

More critical acclaim came her way for the 2010 thriller "Black Swan," in which she co-starred with Natalie Portman. Her performance earned Kunis, who dropped 20 pounds and trained for seven weeks as a ballerina, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award nominations for best supporting actress. That same year, she teamed up with Denzel Washington in the post-apocalyptic "Book of Eli."

In 2011, Kunis was back giving audiences a laugh with the comedy "Friends with Benefits," which paired the actress with Justin Timberlake. In 2012, she co-starred with Mark Wahlberg in another comedy film, "Ted," directed by Seth MacFarlane, whom she's worked with for years on the set of "Family Guy" (MacFarlane created the show).

Despite all of her success, Kunis, who didn't know a word of English when she first arrived in the United States, says she hasn't forgotten her roots. She lives in Los Angeles, not far from her parents, and when she visits, often speaks Russian with them.
