Following the financial success of Bad Moms, STX Entertainment reunited Kunis with her co-stars Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn for a sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas, which was released on November 1, 2017.In 2007, Kunis participated in a video for the website Funny or Die appearing alongside James Franco.We needed someone who would not be just a fop or foil to Max; we needed somebody who had to be that character and convey her own agenda.I think Mila just knocked it out of the park." Director Mike Judge commented that part of what was surprising to learn about Kunis was her ability to make references to the cult animation film Rejected.Judge said: "As beautiful as Mila is, you could believe that maybe she would cross paths with you in the real world." After seeing Kunis perform in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Judge wanted to cast her in the role of Cindy in Extract: "I just thought, 'Wow, this girl's perfect.' And she really wanted to do it, which was fantastic." Kunis herself stated that "I'm a huge fan of Mike Judge's from Office Space, so I was, like, 'Okay, this is a very easy decision.' I told them I would do anything needed to be in this production– like craft service, or, say, acting." Even reviewers who didn't necessarily like the film complimented her performance, such as James Berardinelli, who wrote that "the demands of the role prove to be within her range, which is perhaps surprising considering she has been thus far pigeonholed into more lightweight parts", and Colin Covert of the Star Tribune, who wrote that she "generated a spark and brought a degree of determination to her character, developing an independent female character who's not always in need of rescuing." Kunis was nominated for multiple awards, including her first Golden Globe, for the 2010 film Black Swan.She played a rival ballet dancer to the main character, played by Natalie Portman.Oftentimes with animation they'll have adult actors doing the voices of teenagers and they always sound like Saturday morning voices. She had a very natural quality to Meg that really made what we did with that character kind of really work." In 2001, she appeared in Get Over It opposite Kirsten Dunst.
Mac Farlane added: "What Mila Kunis brought to it was in a lot of ways, I thought, almost more right for the character.
Director John Moore defended his choice of Kunis saying, "Mila just bowled us over.....
She wasn't an obvious choice, but she just wears Mona so well.
In 1991, when she was seven years old, her family moved to Los Angeles, California, with 0. My parents had given up good jobs and degrees, which were not transferable. When Kunis auditioned for the role, she was called back by Mac Farlane, who instructed her to speak slower.
We arrived in New York on a Wednesday and by Friday morning my brother and I were at school in LA." On her second day in Los Angeles, Kunis was enrolled at Rosewood Elementary School, not knowing a word of English. He then told her to come back another time and enunciate more.
