Milena Markivna "Mila" Kunis Kutcher (born August 14, 1983) is an American actress, most famous for playing Jackie Burkhart on ''Series/That70sShow'' and voicing Meg Griffin on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.

She was born in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union; her family moved to the U.S. after the fall of communism. In the '90s, she appeared in small roles in TV series (''Series/{{Baywatch}}'', ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'', ''Series/SeventhHeaven'') and films (''Film/{{Piranha}}'', ''Film/SantaWithMuscles'', ''Film/{{Gia}}''). Her breakout role was of Jackie on ''That '70s Show'', which ran from 1998 to 2006. In 2001 she had a minor role in the romantic-comedy ''Film/GetOverIt''. Kunis is now known as the voice of Meg Griffin on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', [[TheOtherDarrin replacing]] the original voice actress Creator/LaceyChabert.[[note]]While Chabert voiced Meg in the show's first season, some leftover episodes cropped up in season 2, making the change between Chabert and Kunis awkward as the leftover season 1 episodes that were in season 2 aired mixed with the season 2 production line. "Da Boom," the episode in which The Griffins try to survive in a Quahog that has been ravaged by the [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]] disaster, was the first aired episode to have Kunis as Meg.[[/note]]

She appeared in films during her run on ''That '70s Show'', but her career only took off after the series ended. In 2008, she starred in the RomanticComedy ''Film/ForgettingSarahMarshall'', co-produced by Creator/JuddApatow. In 2009, she appeared in the film adaptation of ''Film/MaxPayne'', and Creator/MikeJudge's comedy film ''Film/{{Extract}}''. In 2010, she starred in the post-apocalyptic action film ''Film/TheBookOfEli'' alongside Creator/DenzelWashington and had a small role in the comedy ''Film/DateNight''. Her next film was Creator/DarrenAronofsky's ballet drama ''Film/BlackSwan'', where she played Creator/NataliePortman's rival. In 2011, she starred in the romantic comedy ''Film/FriendsWithBenefits'' along with Music/JustinTimberlake. In 2012, she appeared in Creator/SethMacFarlane's directorial debut, ''Film/{{Ted}}''. In 2013, she appeared in the fantasy film ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'', Creator/SamRaimi's take on a prequel to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' lore.

In 2015, she appeared in ''Film/JupiterAscending'', a ScienceFiction film directed by the Wachowskis and co-starring Creator/ChanningTatum. In 2016, she starred in the comedy ''Film/BadMoms''.

She has also appeared in a few music videos (most notably "Jaded" for Music/{{Aerosmith}}), voiced Tanya Winters in the video game ''VideoGame/SaintsRow1'', and serves as a commercial spokesperson for Jim Beam bourbon.

She's married to former ''That '70s Show'' costar Creator/AshtonKutcher and they have two children together.

Also agreed to go out with a [[SemperFi Marine]] [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/14119721 who asked her out via]] Website/YouTube.
