Mila Kunis is a celebrity. In the United States, celebrities are icons. They are worshipped until someone decides it’s time to smash them.
The most current dish on Kunis is that she is pregnant and she is engaged to Ashton Kutcher. They kept it secret for a long as they could, because in icon-crazy America, that is not enough for us. We need to know what Mila Kunis is eating while she is pregnant. We need to know what Mila Kunis is wearing, preferably daily.
How does all this go over with Mila Kunis? Well, what has she said in the past?
“I keep my personal life as personal as I physically, mentally, possibly can," she once said. "I will go to my grave trying. It is hard, but I'll end up going to a bar that's a hole in the wall. I won't go to the "it's-happening" place. . . It's absurd. It baffles me. Before, you could watch a movie and you would believe the characters in the film. You would believe they were who they were. Nowadays, you watch it and you know everything about that actor. You know where they live. You know where their kids go to school. There’s no sense of mystery."
Prior to Kutcher, she was with actor Macaulay Culkin, and she refused to talk about it. She told one interviewer, "We don’t talk about it to the press. We’ve been together going on seven years because we don’t talk about it. It’s already more high profile than I want it to be.”
When asked about the paparazzi, she really lets her opinion fly.
“Makes me so angry. So many people care about your personal life over your talent. I don’t live to be famous. I don’t live to be recognized. I never want to be on the cover of Us Weekly. I truly am telling you: I despise this aspect. There used to be mystery, mystique about the lives of film land folks, Now, there’s a war going on, and we’re still [asking], 'What did Britney Spears have for breakfast?'”
And this isn’t pre-pregnancy Mila talking, she is sick of the hounding and pestering from paparazzi. She and Ashton Kutcher just want these vultures to go away.
But these vultures will keep pecking so long as someone buys their photos.
