Mila Kunis doesn't mind starring in movies with gross out humour, something other young actresses might baulk at, because she has finds them funny.
She said: "I really have no shame. I think that certain things are funny and certain things are okay to make fun of--including myself. I think that you have to laugh at the absurdity of this entire industry and the absurdity of what it is we do. If I didn't, I'd go crazy."
Mila, 28, also feels lucky that she can pick and choose what roles she takes on because she is financially secure from her long-running roles on TV show That 70s Show and cartoon Family Guy.
Speaking to James Franco for Interview magazine, she said: "After doing a TV show for eight years and a cartoon for more than a decade, you are, financially speaking, in a very lucky position where you don't have to work for the sake of working. And I decided to take advantage of that. I don't live lavishly, so it's not like I have 20 assistants and travel privately and shop every day. I actually live a very mediocre lifestyle. So I decided to step back and do things not just for the sake of doing them, but because I believe in them and I want to do them."
