Mila Kunis Helps Out Awkward Interviewer, Briefly Surpasses Jennifer Lawrence for Title of Awesomest Celebrity on the Planet

BBC Radio 1 guy Chris Stark is like the dorkiest, most adorable, most awkward and unsure interviewer in England, and he approached his interview with Mila Kunis -- apparently, his first -- with the requisite amount of nervousness. "I am petrified," he says. But of course, Mila Kunis is disarming and lovely, and within a few seconds, she's totally mesmerized the guy, who basically just throws the script out the door and has the loveliest, most bumbling conversation with Kunis up until her publicist tells Kunis that she needs to talk about the movie (Oz the Great and Powerful), at which point she rattles of all the answers she's expected to, then nearly agrees to be the guy's date to a wedding this summer. Throughout the entire conversation, she also continues to reassure him, telling him that it's the best interview she's had all day, which is probably true because the sixth circuit of hell, I hear, is nothing but junket interviews.

Oh, I can't even possibly begin to describe how fantastic this interview is. Just watch it. Trust me.

I love her.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Marianne

    Did you see her on the Graham Norton show, was it true James Franco was supposed to be there, too? No one missed him. She was awesomely smart. And so funny! She had the other guests -- Dench and Law -- rolling with laughter (not faked laughter, either). She is a great comedienne, and so disarming!

  • Shut Up Already

    "I can also pour a pint with no foam. WHAT? You didn't know that about me."

  • Kenny G.

    I love that she loves Blue Moon...

  • Jerry Kenney

    I, too, am captivated by Jennifer Lawrence, but Kunis is never far from my heart. What saddens me, though, is that Emma Stone seems to have faded slightly. Perhaps there is room for more on the young woman pantheon, but Jennifer, Mila, and Emma can fill anyone's heart.

  • 724wd

    Mila Kunis tending bar? really? hasn't she been working pretty steady since she was 14 on that 70's show?

  • Vi

    That's cute that he wanted her to join him at a pub, but I honestly think she can drink him under the table. Like so:

  • hahahaha

  • Devlin4

    Cute interview, but my heart will always belong to Jennifer Lawrence. Yet, it's great to know that there are at least a few awesome actors out there.

  • alwaysanswerb

    So we're totally shipping them now, right? Just checking.

  • I think I probably enjoyed this more than I'll enjoy Oz...

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    Time to dig out my DVD of Notting Hill - I ain't ashamed to say I love that movie.

  • Slash

    I do like Kunis. She seems cool. I will overlook her association with the Kutcher. He is at least smart. If he was dumb and kind of a douche, I'd have serious questions.

  • tamatha_uhmelmahaye

    Damn. She really is amazing. I want to go round to the pub and have some pints with her, too!

  • John G.

    Are you allowed to go down to the pub with the lads when you're 12?

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Three freebies: Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence and Anna Kendrick. We all go out for beer and chicken wings then...well...stuff happens. My wife is on board with this.

  • kirbyjay

    Didn't I tell all of you Mila was the best? She is my first and only girl crush.

  • BendinIntheWind

    This is delightful - I laughed out loud at "Oh, we're back to being British now!"

  • Caitlin_G

    Why is she dating Ashton kutcher when she could be with the adorable British kid! I did love how 'I don't give a f*ck' she was about it being press for the Oz movie. Must be a pretty horrible movie for her to try so hard to keep it out of the topic of conversation. Love her, but my girl crush will always belong to JLaw.

  • Louise

    4:44 is what caps it. "Let me just tell you the answers to all the stuff you're supposed to ask me" and out it all comes in about 30 seconds flat. That tells you all you need to know about the hell of junkets.

    She filled in for James Franco on Graham Norton this past weekend and was completely charming. I didn't have any impression of her beforehand and fell in love.

  • moonsover

    So glad "Horse and Hound" finally got back in for an interview. I've been dying to know how many horses and/or hounds are in "Oz the Great and Powerful". I'm equally intrigued by both species.

  • moonsover

    Whoops. Looks like the first Horse and Hound post under my real name didn't delete. I blame Mila. She makes us all nervous.

  • moonsover

    Well, you know, everyone except Judi Dench.

  • HAAA!

  • moonsover

    I always love "Horse and Hound" interviews. Can't get enough of 'em. I wonder how many horses and/or hounds are in "Oz the Great and Powerful"? I'm equally intrigued by both species.

  • Minimoose763

    This is awesome and makes it all the more disappointing that she's dating Ashton Kutcher.

  • BAM

    Demi Moore, Mila Kunis, etc... he must have a big dick amiright?

  • Lotney

    Oh great!!! Now I can't unknow that. Thank you very much....

  • Jenn

    Oh my god he's a real life Hugh Grant before Hugh Grant became insufferable. They are starring in an amazing romantic comedy in my head.

  • io

    Is Hollywood paying attention?! I really want to watch this movie.

  • prince_of_montagu

    This interview is already better than any Katherine Heigl/Kate Hudson romantic comedy.

    I'm actually hoping that this turns into a real life version of Notting Hill and Mila moves there "indefinitely".

    (but still makes films because we love her)

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I am disturbed by how totally awesome I find such a possibility.

  • Max

    This is wonderful, and I'm convinced the interviewer is playing a game to see how much he can get away with. He couldn't have picked a better target.

  • I would believe that, except for looking at him.

  • Bandit

    He is genuinely like that. He's rather clueless but very funny. He has a feature on the radio called '24 Years at the Tap End' (because, at age 24, he realised he spent his entire life sitting at the wrong end of the bath). Its his autobiography, but is very funny and entertaining.

  • Leelee

    Oh I LOVE '24 Years at the Tap End' - I only catch it now and again but he is always adorable.

  • Rochelle

    I like it when there are multiple awesome celebrities. It helps keep my inner stalker at bay. My inner stalker is kind of lazy and indecisive.

  • minxy

    In college my roommate felt sad because she wanted a stalker, so she could feel loved. I agreed to stalk her, but only when we were just hanging out. Laziest stalker ever.

  • Rochelle

    You're still a good friend. My friends never offered to stalk me.

  • Boston Red

    Hey, English boy... you blokes created the word "soccer." It's okay if you use it.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    They probably start doing that when you start to call "American Football" by the correct name: "American Rugby" (or "Lawn Chess"; both work equally well).

  • Using soccer is only OK if you do it in the same sentence as rugger, and since it isn't 1955 I wouldn't hold my breath:

  • dizzylucy

    I think if she weren't working, she might have actually gone to the wedding with him!

  • Bobbs3k

    That was just so full of win, that I can't stand it. Plus I really feel like she would've gone to the wedding with him if she didn't have filming going on.

  • Tracey

    The rattling off of answers were fucking awesome.

  • llp

    I don't understand the proportions of the person in the poster behind Mila - whaaaa?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I know; it's mesmerizing in the worst way.

  • DeltaJuliet

    Thank you...I've been staring at it trying to figure it out.

  • Less Lee Moore

    Hahaha, amazing.

  • Robert

    Note to self: pitch Mila Kunis interview. Have her teach me to overcome interviewer anxiety. Compliment her on American Psycho 2 for science.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I don't know about "briefly". Like, she's going to be ahead of Jennifer Lawrence for me until at least, say, Thursday afternoon. The best part was definitely her rattling off the junket answers sans the junket questions; I like to imagine her publicist was just staring fucking daggers as that happened.

  • Buck Forty

    I've always wondered why there hasn't been a parody movie/sketch about the junket interview. I imagined one in my head once: the actor is being directed by a publicist as they rehearse scripted answers to stock questions, maybe the actor is trying new ways of 'laughing' at the witty question, etc. Because they DO get asked the same questions all the time, and they hate it. The only people who enjoy junket interviews are the publicists, and then only if everyone (interviewer and interviewee) stays on point.
