Mila Kunis–love interest of Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher–is the new face of Jim Beam Bourbon. The first time the company has launched a global campaign, they no doubt wanted a pretty and recognizable face as their spokesperson–and they’ve found exactly that in the pretty Black Swan star.
“Mila’s love of bourbon, her appreciation for the authenticity of our brand, her warm personality and her global relevance to our Make History campaign make her the perfect partner,” Kevin George, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Beam Inc. said.
“As a fan of bourbon and a huge proponent of making history, I am thrilled to be the newest member of the Jim Beam family,” Kunis added.
Jim Beam was all too happy to share word of their new contract with Mila Kunis via a Twitter announcement on Wednesday.

In addition to her role in Black Swan, Mila Kunis is the voice behind Family Guy’s Meg Griffin. She also starred–along with Ashton Kutcher–in the hit TV show That 70s Show.
Jim Beam was founded back in 1975. The American whiskey is made in Clermont, Kentucky. The company makes and sells several kinds of bourbon in addition to other spirits. They also sell a variety of food products that feature bourbon as an ingredient.
It certainly appears as thought the affiliation between Mila Kunis and Jim Beam Bourbon is a good and mutual one. She is no doubt being paid handsomely for touting the merits of their bourbon–and claims she likes it. Honest advertising is always the best–don’t you think? And who better could Jim Beam have gained for their international ad campaign than a beautiful woman who actually enjoys drinking their bourbon? It sounds like an all around win-win situation–and maybe Ashton Kutcher will get a complimentary bottle every now and then, too.
