Black Swan's Kunis Talks Celebrity; Portman Kicks Ass in a Thong in Your Highness Trailer

Black Swan supporting actress Mila Kunis sits down with MCN‘s David Poland to discuss the film, working with Darren Aronofsky, and shares her views on what it means to be “a celebrity.” After the jump, read Kunis’s Hollywood weight-loss experience and check out her Black Swan kissing-co-star Natalie Portman in the new trailer for the medieval-fantasy-comedy Your Highness (set for April 2011 release), starring Danny McBride, Zooey Deschanel and James Franco. Who says Oscar contenders can’t have a sense of humor? Or wear a thong…

Kunis also tells E! that, after dropping to 95 lbs for the film, she understands both the up-side and down-side to being sickly-skinny, and why Hollywood encourages it:

“I could see why this industry is so fucked up, because at 95 pounds, I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, Oh my God!” she says. “I had no shape, no boobs, no ass…All you saw was bone. I was like, This looks gross…In real life, it looked disgusting…But in photographs and on film, it looked amazing…My mom freaked out…Everybody started panicking. She was like, ‘You have to promise me this isn’t going to affect you.’ I was like, ‘I promise it won’t, but it might take me a little time to be OK with having a little more fat on me’…it took me five months to lose 20 pounds, but it took me just five days—days!—to gain it all back.”
