London: Mila Kunis, the sultry brunette who won a legion of male fans with her raunchy lesbian scene with Natalie Portman in ‘Black Swan’, has revealed that she does not think of herself as someone who is particularly attractive.
The 28-year-old actress reckons that it is her sense of humour rather than her looks that gets her noticed.
“I appreciate the attention but I don’t think of myself as particularly attractive at all,” the Sun quoted Kunis as saying.
“I also don’t have that naturally sexual or sensuous way of behaving that some women have.
“I do have a pretty sharp sense of humour, though, and I think that has helped me,” she said.
Kunis was born in Ukraine but moved to Los Angeles with her parents when she was seven-years-old.
Neither her father Mark, who works as a taxi driver, nor her mother Elvira, who manages a pharmacy, had any links to the film industry.
“LA is filled with the most beautiful women in the world who all come here to be part of the entertainment industry. It’s impossible to compete against that,” she said.
“Some women rely on their looks to make it and others know that they need to work hard to not just be treated as a pretty object and have a serious career.
“So I’ve never bought into my own beauty myth and I have always worked hard and believed in myself as an actress in order to get where I am. Nothing was ever given to me and that’s the way it is for virtually everyone. You have to fight very hard to make it in this business,” she added.
Kunis bagged another leading role in a major new comedy drama ‘Ted’ where she is starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, and which is set to release on August 1.
