It may be the world's cutest interview. Mila Kunis sits down with a newbie from BBC Radio to talk about her role in Oz the Great and Powerful, and the guy is just a nervous wreck. So what does the world's sexiest woman do? She acts absolutely awesome.
The video is going viral right now, as well it should be. But I know the question in the back of everyone's minds is: is this an act? Or is this the real Mila Kunis? Allow me to answer!
The Stir ALSO sat down with the actress who plays Theodora in the new Wizard of Oz movie (which opens Friday), and the way she geeked out about having an actual doll that looks like her that little girls will be cuddling with at night is 100 percent real. So is her indignation about the invasive press.
Truth is, I didn't know what to expect when Mila walked in to meet a room full of mom bloggers. From what I'd read, she was (is) incredibly intelligent but also a woman who values her privacy. I'd seen boyfriend Ashton Kutcher hanging around at the Oz the Great and Powerful after-party (yes, I got to go to the after-party after the red carpet premiere, and yes, it was amazing ... I even saw the Fonz!), but I knew she was not going to be open to talking about him. So what would she talk about?
You're about to find out ... small SPOILER in here!
On being in her first-ever family film and the reaction from the world:
I'm in a room full of mommies, so let’s be clear, this is new!
The truth is, oddly enough, here’s what I realized: I thought the questions would be a little bit more demure, like from not you guys, but from others, and they’re not.
They’re just as obnoxious and awful as when you do an R-rated film, so I learned nothing changes. You can do a movie for Disney or not. People will still ask you inappropriate questions.
Do I feel like there’s a difference in promoting it? Apparently not. They still put you in a room with these people that apparently have no difference whether you’re making a family-driven show or otherwise.
But I do realize it’s very sad to me. This is the first film that I’ve done that’s not R-rated. It’s a really weird connection.
On her co-stars in Oz:
James [Franco] and I, I think counted -- it’s our eighth movie together, eighth project together, so he doesn’t count. We’re stuck with one another.
Rachel [Weisz] and I had a fantastic time. We had so much fun! And Michelle [Williams] and I literally get to do one thing together and we're dying to work more [with each other] so we all had a great time, and Detroit was really fun, FYI, in case anybody wants to go to Detroit. I love it. I did.

On her personal relationship with Oz:
I came to America when I was 7 1/2 in '91. I think the first book when I was 9 years old, full length book in English, that I read was Return to Oz. And I’ve spoken about this completely independent of this movie, prior to ever being attached to this film, that as a kid, the first movie that I remember seeing that resonated with me was the Wizard of Oz. I think just visually the color, the spectrum of it, and how fantastical it was and how much you wanted to live in that world, for a 9-year-old, was so magical and so grand, so I have the greatest, fondest memories of it.
On the Theodora doll:
I just got it two days ago. It’s still in the box.
I won’t lie; I’ve shown it to everybody that walks into the house because let me be clear, it’s not just a doll, it’s a Disney doll!
Like that’s a whole doll of me, like not of me green, of me like the early part. I'm like, hey you guys, have you seen this? Check this out? See this!
Everybody that walks into the house -- like I don’t even care -- I'm like bring the doll because it’s a Disney doll. It’s insane. It’s insane!
But no it’s still in its box. I think you can buy it at Target. Not to say that I know these things, but I think you may, yes.
So there you have it ... Mila Kunis, the real Mila Kunis, may be the sexiest woman in the world. But she gets sentimental about the first book she ever read in her second language, and she gets really excited about being a doll!
Is that what you expect from Mila Kunis? What do you think of her as an actress?
