Los Angeles: Actress Mila Kunis says being the daughter of poor migrants from Ukraine helped her develop the thick skin she needs to survive in Hollywood.
"You build it up. My dad always said I have a really good backbone. I grew up here, I didn`t grow up wealthy or even middle class, we were pretty poor and you learn how life works very quickly," contactmusic.com quoted Kunis as saying.
The 28-year-old says she has been able to hold on to it because she surrounds herself with smart people.
"The best advice I have been given? That sometimes it`s oaky to be wrong - you can`t always play it safe," she said.
