Mila Kunis Talks Motherhood & Aging In Hollywood For Playboy
Mila Kunis may be considered one of the sexiest women in Hollywood, but the 29-year-old actress is already worried about aging. The star of Disney‘s forthcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful sat down with her co-star James Franco for the March issue of Playboy and revealed that being a woman in the film industry is harder the older you get.
“There’s a documentary you should see called Searching for Debra Winger about how this industry affects women in their 30s. Realistically speaking, it’s hard,” she told Franco. “Sometimes you can find a happy medium, but in this industry it’s rare. It’s weird that at the age of 29 I’m talking about aging in this industry, but the truth is I don’t think I can do this for the rest of my life. I want to be a producer. That’s really what I want, because I love this work in a weird, sick way. But I also want a life. I want a family—just, like, one day, not tomorrow.”
When Kunis finally does decide to have children, perhaps with her current beau Ashton Kutcher, the beauty definitely wants to be a stay-at-home mom. “I want to be a present mom,” she said. “When I was growing up both my mom and dad worked full-time. I guess the only thing I can say about that is they worked full-time in one location. I’m never in the same place for more than two months. How am I ever going to have a family like that? You have to make compromises.”
Still, Kunis dreams of working into her 60s like her icon, Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep. “I’d love to, but I wouldn’t presume or assume to be that,” she revealed. “If I’m lucky enough to have a career remotely close to hers, great. If I’m not, I’m not going with the expectation of having one, because that ultimately will slow me down. It’s one in a million; it’s not the reality…I think a lot of it is luck.”
Oz: The Great and Powerful hits theaters on March 8.
